Olaus E Ulive?? Uboe??   65 something 1920 (65 years old in 1920?)

We have no clue on the photographer or the area where the photograph was taken..only where it ended up.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

Update from Anonymous:
"65 Aar gl." means "65 years old".

My guess is that this is Olaus Emil Uboe (Ubøe).

According to web searches, he was a Norwegian Lutheran teacher.

In Norwegian Census data from 1865, there lived an Olaus E. C. Ubøe, 11, at the farm Søndenaae Qvælve in Vikedal in Rogaland County, Norway. His father Christen O. Ubøe was a police officer and farmer, with two cows, 2 sheeps and one pig.

This was the only family called Ubøe in this census in Norway. I did not find other traces of Olaus Ubøe in other/later census databases.

However, it seems Åge and Valentin (Fallentin), his brothers, emigrated in 1884, together with a "Olaus Emil" (without surname).

 It seems he (and some of his brothers) also left Norway in 1881. He then stated that his profession was "Kontorist" (Clerk) and that his destination was Lasalle Co. Ill.
I guess people have lost interest by now, but anyway: Ubøe is most likely an old spelling for Aubø, a small island in fjord Boknafjord in Rogaland, Norway. This is not far from Vikedal, mentioned above.

Back then, people often took their surname from the farm/place they lived.

The emigration records states that Olaus lived at Sjernarøy at the time of departure. Aubø is part of the Sjernarøy islands (archipelago).



Update from Iggy:
There are mentions of Olaus E Uboe being a Lutheran School teacher - and mention of him trying to homestead in Crookston, MN but the US census records don't see to "remember" him. I suspect the name is badly mispelled/mangled in their records.


Update from Anonymous:
I found another record that likely is Olaus Emil:

Olaus Emil Ubo (Ubøe) born May 28th, 1855, married Anne Birgitte Lande, born February 10th, 1863. The wedding was May 9th, 1880.

An Anne Birgitte Lande is listed in the emigration records from 1881, next to Olaus Emil (Ubøe).

This is the correct information from Martha.

From my records: Olaus Emil Ubøe was born on May 28, 1855, Aubø, Sjernarøy, Rogaland, Norway, and he died in Canada in 1926.
The following was from Milestones and Memories, Colonsay and Meacham Districts, 1905-1980,published by R.M. 342, Celebrate Saskatchewan 1980 Committees, Colonsay, Saskatchewan, Canada; printer Friesen Printers, Altona, Manitoba, Canada, 1980, p. 539.
Family Name: Uboe, Olaus and Christian
Olaus and Christian Uboe emigrated from Norway to Karlstad, Minnesota. Their education led them to become teachers. Olaus E. Uboe filed for a homestead in 1909 on S.W. 13-36-27 W2, east of Meacham. Later, Christian Martin Uboe came to Meacham and his homestead was NE 13-36-27 W2. Several years later, their sister (Emilie) came to live with them. Olaus, Christian, and their sister died here and were all buried in Minnesota.

  1. "65 Aar gl." means "65 years old".

    My guess is that this is Olaus Emil Uboe (Ubøe).

    According to web searches, he was a Norwegian Lutheran teacher. And, according to
    http://www.webfamilytree.com/Hope_Centennial/townships/carpenter_township.php

    he might have some connection to Hope city in Steele County, ND?

  3. It seems his whole family (parents and siblings) emigrated at the same time.

  4. One more addition. It seems he (and some of his brothers) also left Norway in 1881. He then stated that his profession was "Kontorist" (Clerk) and that his destination was Lasalle Co. Ill.

  5. Looks like Crex(?) has a good lead on Olaus.

  7. I found some more mention of a Olaus E. Uboe, again as a Lutheran School teacher in the Colonsay and Meacham Districts of Saskatchewan (I hope I spelled it correctly).
