Olaf G. Johnsen

Kloten, North Dakota

is a farmer and lives two miles from Kloten. His father, Gunner J. Prestegaarden, and his mother, Gunvor, are both from Saetesdoler, from Valle. They came to America in 1882 to Grand Forks County and took a homestead in Nelson County and lives on the farm at this time.

Olaf is 25 years old, 6.1 feet high and weighs 220 pounds and is good proof that the Saetesdals ethnicity thrives well on American soil.
