December 2012 Update:
Kristine wrote me a Thank you card and included the following information. 
Nel Albert Gunderson was born and raised in Norway.  He was determined to make his fortune this side of the Atlantic.  The land he bought was in Worth County and he also claimed land in North Dakota.  He worked up until his death in 1915.  He married the beautiful Ingeborg Breia and they had seven children. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)
