Mrs Chris Milsten Photo Number 2002
I mailed the photo and Karen said she would get back to me with some family info.
Then my great uncle, Ole Aasen married Mari Milsten who was a younger sister of Christian's. Ole was an uncle to my Dad. They moved to Melfort, Saskatchwan. Ole and Mari had 9 children. We keep in touch with this branch of the family also.
According to Christian Milsten's obituary: He was
a most highly respected citizen of Gary, MN. He came to this country at the age of 21 and settled in Freeborn County. He was married to Helena on 12/28/1876. Helena and he moved to Norman County in 1880 where they settled on their homestead n the town of Strand. They lived there for 10-12 years. Then they bought a farm in Bear Park where lived for a few years. Then they moved to Gary went into business. Christian died before Helena. They had no children.
That is a short summary of how Helena Hanson is related to us. Thank you for the picture.
It is wonderful when relatives give us a little insight into their relatives lives!
Thanks for stopping by.
