Anna Olina Christensen

F, b. 14 October 1874, d. 25 April 1929
     Anna Olina Christensen was born on 14 October 1874 at Spink Twp, Union, Dakota Territory. She was the daughter of Ole Ormbergstol Christensen and Ingeborg Johnsdatter Teigen. Anna Olina Christensen married Sever Abraham, son of Abraham Olson and Berte 'Anna' Gjytri, on 27 February 1896 at Brule Creek Church, Spink, Union, South Dakota.

Anna Olina Christensen died on 25 April 1929 at Beach, Golden Valley, North Dakota, at age 54. She was buried on 29 April 1929 at Beach Lutheran Cemetery, Beach, Golden Valley, North Dakota.
     Anna Olina Christensen was also known as Anna Oline. Anna Olina Christensen was also known as Christianson. Anna Olina Christensen also went by the name of Annie. Adolph homesteaded in Zweibach County. He raised horses and shipped them to auction sales in eastern South Dakota. He never married. He was a veteran of World War I - Private Adolph Abraham, Co 18, 4th Infantry, Amer. E. F., APO Q 740, Ser #22 14 302, WW I. A newspaper clipping reported UNION COUNTY BOY HAS CLOTHES PIERCED BY BULLETS FOUR TIMES. History records that during the Revolutionary war, the Indians tried repeatedly to shoot General Washington from his horse, and failing to do so, became of the opinion that he was a superior natural being, whom to kill would call down the wrath of the gods. Union County has a young man who recently reached home from service in France that can tell almost as remarkable a story, and while he has no rabbit's foot in his left-hand pocket, and was not aware of any connection with the super human being he surely was wonderfully fortunate, to say the least. The young man is ADOLPH ABRAHAMSON, son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Abrahamson, who live three miles north of the Spink store, and the remarkable fact is that four bullets passed through his hat, and one through his coat, yet he received not a scratch. The fact that he escaped so nicely becomes a pleasant matter to recount, but when the possibilities of any one of the missiles of death going wrong is suggested, it is far from a pleasant topic of conversation. The young soldier is the grandson of Ole Christensen, who departs Tuesday morning for a visit with his daughters, Mrs. Sever Abrahamson and Mrs. Edward Nelson, in the Golden Valley, Montana. She was listed as a daughter in Ole Ormbergstol Christensen's household on the 1880 Census at Spink, Union, South Dakota.1 As of 27 February 1896,her married name was ABRAHAM.

Ole Ormbergstol Christensen married Eliza Gittoes Putman on 25 February 1922 at Clay, South Dakota. Ole Ormbergstol Christensen died on 9 December 1935 at Union, South Dakota, at age 87.
     Ole Ormbergstol Christensen was also known as Ormbergstol. Ole Ormbergstol Christensen was also known as Christianson. Ole Ormbergstol Christensen also went by the name of Ormbergstal. Adolph homesteaded in Zweibach County. He raised horses and shipped them to auction sales in eastern South Dakota. He never married. He was a veteran of World War I - Private Adolph Abraham, Co 18, 4th Infantry, Amer. E. F., APO Q 740, Ser #22 14 302, WW I. A newspaper clipping reported UNION COUNTY BOY HAS CLOTHES PIERCED BY BULLETS FOUR TIMES. History records that during the Revolutionary war, the Indians tried repeatedly to shoot General Washington from his horse, and failing to do so, became of the opinion that he was a superior natural being, whom to kill would call down the wrath of the gods. Union County has a young man who recently reached home from service in France that can tell almost as remarkable a story, and while he has no rabbit's foot in his left-hand pocket, and was not aware of any connection with the super human being he surely was wonderfully fortunate, to say the least. The young man is ADOLPH ABRAHAMSON, son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Abrahamson, who live three miles north of the Spink store, and the remarkable fact is that four bullets passed through his hat, and one through his coat, yet he received not a scratch. The fact that he escaped so nicely becomes a pleasant matter to recount, but when the possibilities of any one of the missiles of death going wrong is suggested, it is far from a pleasant topic of conversation. The young soldier is the grandson of Ole Christensen, who departs Tuesday morning for a visit with his daughters, Mrs. Sever Abrahamson and Mrs. Edward Nelson, in the Golden Valley, Montana. He and Ingeborg Johnsdatter Teigen immigrated in 1869 to Norway to, Dakota Territory.

He was listed as the head of a family on the 1930 Census at School district 40, Wibaux, Montana.4 On 5 June 1959 at Letter from Selmar to his cousin Dick "Dear Dick, We received a letter from my sister Lizzie, she enclosed your letter. Since you are after information about our side of the great Abraham family I am all for furthering posterity. You have a job cut out for yourself. We certainly are strung out. I know Aunt Mary has a girl and her family living in Seattle, then there is my brother Joe and cousine Orve in Stanwood, and Marie (Julia) near Stanwood. But you no doubt know all that by now. Well here are the pertinent facts about our family. I, Selmer was born in Union County So. Dak. Oct. 1st, 3rd child of Sever and Anna Abraham. I was raised by my mother's folks - Ole Christensons - because of my mother's illness... Marie and I were married July 7th, 1922 in Wibaux, Montana, but began married life in Beach. Marie taught school the first year when we decided to find our fortune on the west coast. Arriving in Portland the Fall of 1923, I obtained work at a saw and finishing mill. We were there for two years, while there our first child was born, Orve Earl... born April 29, 1924 in Portland, Oregon. Next we had a firl, we were back in North Dakota trying to farm. Aldryth Jewel, born in Beach, North Dakota, August 22, 1927... Another girl, Verna Mae born also in Beach Jan 5th, 1930... And still another girl, Ione Marie, was also born in Beach on Feb. 1st 1934... And now a boy, Darryl Boyd, born near Spink South Dakota, May 13, 1936 (Dr. Kerr was the doctor, the same one that brought me into the world)... And last but not least, another boy, Norbert Alverne, was born in Wenatchee, Washington, Nov. 2, 1937... Well thats it. And now Dick you have all the facts, maybe a bit more than you required but you know how it is when one gets to telling about ones family. I am very proud of mine. We never did find that fortune, that is money wise, but we are so rich having our health and our family around us, seeing the next generation coming along, enjoying the childrens visits, and helping them when they need a boost along these confusing times. We have been living in this vicinity now for twenty two years and have built up a host of friends, all in all this is home. We sit and wish for the old days at times, remembering... When I was a boy, spending my time with Grandpa Chirstenson, Unle Christ, and after Aunt Ellen was married, I used to stay with her in Spearfish. Then when Aunt Mary and Ed moved to No. Dak. I would go visit her, work for Ed through field work then spend a while with my folks, after they moved to Beach vicinity. It was while I was driving a team on the thresh rig with my brothers that I met Marie one Saturday nite at a dance. We were married the next summer, and I have related the rest. We tried to farm in N. Dak in 1930, but the drought, grasshoppers, and hail soon convinced us that we were through. In 1935 we started for new endeavors, [my sister] Liza had been writing that Grandpa was ailing and wish he could see me again, so we decided to go visit him and maybe find us a place to live. Grandpa died that fall, I was glad I was there to be with him for a month before he was taken away. We moved to Spink where I drove truck for Anderson for a while then I got a chance to work for Mr. Mahan, near Spink. We lived on his place, and that was how come Darryl was born there. But that was the year when So. Dak. had that awful drought, the corn shriveled up green, so there was no crop. So we returned to Beach, and the next summer came here, and we still are here, and shall remain I s'pose. Dick, when you finish your History of our family, let me know if you get it printed, I would like to order a copy. Since I grew up with all my cousins out there I'l be interested where everyone is now, and all the additions that are now in existance. We really must be a big family. It would be interesting to know what all the cousins are doing now, as for myself, I have been working as fork life operator at a saw mill about four miles out of town, for the past 10 years. We own our own home and we like this climate, much like yours but not so severe. Our hot weather lasts about three weeks, other wise it is comfortable to sleep at nights. It gets cold in winter even below zero, but only for a few days. The seasons are short. Winter I mean... You'll have to excuse all the mistakes I'm making, I'm not a typest, as you can see, but my handwriting is worse, so here I sit pegging away with one finger. I've enjoyed it thoug, its brought back a lot of memories. Regards to you all, your cousin, Selmar."
