     In 1926 Marie returned to Norway on a visit. On one of the post cards she sent, she wrote "... Have also been to Holmenesett. It was just as it was except it seemed so small. Holme-Ni out in the fjord was just the same." (Is this where the Holmseth name came from? Abraham Olson sometimes used Abraham Holmseth as a name.) Marie came to America on a steamship with her parents when she was 8. When Miss Olsen was a young girl, she and her sister boarded a steam-powered train and traveled from Sioux City to Chicago where she worked as a cook. She cooked in huge Chicago mansions until retiring at the age of 85. Among her employers were the millionaire families of Rosenwald and Jelke. Rosenwald was president of Sears Roebuck and Co. and Jelke was an oleomargarine heir. After her retirement she lived at 606 Market St, Sioux City, Iowa. Her special interests were cooking, needlework, music and a large "family" of nieces and nephews. At the age of 92, she moved to the Sunrise Manor, 5501 Gordon Drive, Sioux City, Iowa. In 1980 at the age of 107, the Social Security Office in Baltimore said Marie was considered to be one of the oldest residents of the county. The Sioux City Jornal, Wednesday, October 14, 1981 wrote: "Iowa's Commission On the Aging keeps a list of the state's citizens who have attained the ageo of 100 years or more. The list has existed for five years and is, admittedly, incomplete...

     Andreas 'Andy' Abrahamson was a farmer. Andy was six years old when he came to America through the New York port of entry. His parents farmed near Spink, SD. At age 21, he went west to Philip, SD, to homestead. Land speculators abounded at that time, extolling the fine, verdant land that lay out west. Railroads offered special "emmigrant" cards - half for livestock & half for personal possessions - at special rates. And all were very careful to take the prospective homesteaders out in the Spring when the land was beautiful. A wave of people rushed out to take advantage of free land. Many from the Spink community went west in 1906. A group of four young people banded together to face the prairie: Andreas Abrahamson, Edward Larson (son of the owner and operator of Spink General Store), Lisa Larson (Edward's sister), and Ester Peterson (Edward's future wife). They went to what is now Haakon County & claimed land as close together as possible - 3 quarters were adjoining and 1 quarter a half mile west. They build their homes, dug wells, fenced, planted trees, plowed land and lived there for the necessary one year. When the necessary year of residence was up, the land was theirs. In May 1907, they took the train to Pierre, SD, and had a double wedding - Andy and Lise, Eddie and Esther. Farming around Philip was difficult and these homesteaders recognized it all too well. With the help of Lise & Eddie's father, Eddie and Andy started Larson's General Store in Philip, SD. They purchased homes, side by side, just west of the main street. Andy & Lise's first son was born in Philip, SD. As the "homesteading" trade slowed down, Andy sold his share of the business to Eddie and Andy & Lise moved back to Spink, SD. They built their home on the northwest corner of Spink intersection. Andy farmed there until his retirement when his son, Norman, assumed the work. Andy & Lise lived in a small home on the farm until their deaths. He immigrated with Abraham Olson and Berte 'Anna' Gjytri on 18 June 1881 at from Syndfjord, Bergen, Norway to New York then on to, Vermillion, South Dakota; departed Bergen, Norway on 23 May 1881 on the Bremer Line ship to Bremen, Germany

  1. There was some question as to Anna's name. On their son Ole's death certificate, his mother is listed as Gyntess. On daughter Rachel's death certificate, the name is Ann Lorence Gjytri. Ragna, Ole's daughter, grew up in the same home with her grandmother Anna and Ragna said she had to write her grandmother's maiden name many, many times so that she would get it right. She says the name is Gjytri.
