Ole P. Saetrum

Galesburg, North Dakota

is a farmer. He was born in Dovre on November 12, 1859 and emigrated to America in 1881 to Fargo, North Dakota. He went to Galesburg, North Dakota that same year. He took a homestead in Galesburg Township and is the owner of the farm at this time, but he lives in Galesburg, North Dakota where he has a very fine comfortable Home.

His wife, Kristine Kraabel, is a sister of A. T. Kraabel in Clifford, North Dakota and is from Tretten. Their son John operates the farm.

Saetrum has assembled many interesting pictures from his trip to Norway in 1914. He is a public spirited man who reads much and follows with good timely questions.
