1910 census Perkins Co, SD:

Ramsland, Tyler O., hd, 30, M(1) 11 yrs, b MN, Norway, WS

" Everett, s, ?, b MN
" Otis, s, 2, b ND
" Odin, brother, 21, b MN -- asst cashier - bank
[Tyler is town or tour sight agt -- CM & PJ RR; owns House free and clear]

1920 census, Cheyenne Co, CO:

Ramsland, Tyler O., hd, 39, Md, b MN, Norway, WS
" Birdie R., w, 38, Md, b IA, IA, IA
" Everett T., s, 18, Sgl b MN
" Otis P., s, 12, b ND (yes North)
" James E., s, 5, b SD (yes South, not typo)
" Robert (G.?), 1 5/12, b CO
White, Sylvia, servant, 18, sgl, b KN, IL, IA - cook
Berkens, Jr, William, roomer, sgl, 45, b NE, WS, WS,
[Tyler and roomer William are both Real Estate Agents]

I didn't spot Everett either, thought I found him on CA Dth Idx, but mother's maiden name was Barmore and there were two more Ramslands with same mother's maiden name, so I guess it wasn't him. (^_^)

I thought I'd found Tyler's brother Odin on SSDI, but that Odein born too late, probably a son of the brother Odin. Tyler's brother probably died too early to be on the SSDI, too.

Do you have a Family History Center near you? Most are online, now, and the LDS have a subscription to Ancestry has the 1930 census, and an index to same. I can't guarantee you'll find your people, though. I found my father and his family, but cannot for the life of me find my mother and hers. I don't know how bad you can mess up the name of Rice. LOL

Volunteers in the FHC will help you with their computers.

Are you trying to tie Tyler to his parents? 1900 census Sacred Heart, Renville Co, MN, ED 141, sh 2:

Ramsland, Ole T., hd, b Oct 1854, 45, M 1 yr, b Nor, Nor, Nor
" Magnes, s, b Jan 1882, 18, b MN, Nor, MN
" Elonora, d, Mar 1885, 15, b MN
" Gertie, d, b Sep 1883, 16, b MN
" Rudolph, s, b Aug 1887, 12, b MN
" Odean, s, b Aug 1889, 10, b MN
" Mabel, d, b Sep 1892, 7, b MN
" Leonora, wife, b Sep 1870, 29, M 1 yr, b NOr, Nor, Nor
Bergk, Tullard, boarder, b Sep 1881, 18, b MN, Nor, Nor

Looks like Leonora is a second wife. Ole came to U.S. 1871, here for 29 yrs, and naturalized.

Next page:

Ramsland, Oarat, hd, b Oct 1880, 19, M 1 yr, b MN, Nor, WS
" Berde, wf, b Feb 1881, 19, M 1 yr, 0 ch, 0 lvg, b MN, WS, IL

[Index shows his given name as Parot, but I believe that first letter is an "O" and it looks like Oarat to me. He is a clerk in bank.]

1880 census Granite Falls, Yellow Medicine Co, MN:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

Ole RAMSLAND Self M Male W 25 NOR. Clerk In Store NOR. NOR.
Julia RAMSLAND Wife M Female W 19 IL. Keeping House NOR. NOR.
Elling RAMSLAND Cousin S Male W 20 NOR. Book Keeper NOR. NOR.

[I don't know if Julia is mother of the children listed for Ole on the 1900 census, as they all show mother born in MN, but who knows who answered enumerator's questions. If it was the second younger wife, she may not have known correct state of birth of the children.]

1910 census Sacred Heart, Renville Co, MN:

Ramsland, O.T., hd, 56, M(2) 11 yrs, b Nor, Nor, Nor
