Ole Larson's Folks

Died in Vernon County, Wisconsin, on this date in 1908: great-grandfather Ole Larson, namesake of this site and patriarch of the Larson clan. Also featured on his birth date just 13 days ago,. I don’t know whether Ole died at home (most people did, back then); if so, it was in the home where he lived for 33 years and raised his family (top photo, taken in 2009). Buried less than a mile away, at Brush Creek Church. Coming soon on this site: a proper profile of this highly important ancestor.
