I think I have a letter that would interest you. It was written by O.L. Bakken, Thief River Falls, MN on 8 Oct 1911. It was written to my grandfather, E.E. Lobeck, born Trysil, Norway. The letter is in Norwegian but gives O.L. Bakken's parents, dates, immigration, places they lived after immigrating, children's names, etc. It is on his own letterhead listing him as a "merchant tailor"
