In Reply to: Nelsons of Ladysmith by L Nelson of 47

Hello L Nelson -

I have just learned my Nelson family lived in the Ladysmith area. My great grandmother Karen Kristine (Carrie) Nelson was born in Norway about 1859-1860. Little is know about Carrie & her family. She married Knute J. Oleson before 1879 & they lived in Barron County, Wi.

The 1880 census for Barron Co. shows Carrie's younger brother - Adolph Nelson - age 12 born in Norway living with Carrie & her husband & 1 year old son Joseph.

Carrie had a sister named Ann - I know nothing else about her, her other siblings or her parents.

Carrie died April 1894 - about a month after giving birth to my grandmother - Karen Kristine (Carrie) Oleson/Olson.

Perhaps they are related to your Nelson family. Please let me know. Thanks - Laura L. Jones
