Osmund Amundson, who is engaged in farming on the old Amundson homestead in section 9, Sheldon township, was
born in this township, Aug. 17, 1864, son of Thor and Carrie (Anderson) Amundson. He was brought up on the home
farm and assisted his father until arriving at the age of fifteen years, when he began working out for others.
This he continued to do for some years, working on the home farm at intervals. In 1896 he took it over and has
since operated it. He has forty acres in one piece, with twenty acres farther south, ten acres adjoining on the
north and twenty acres joining on the west, the last three tracts having been added to the original farm. He is
carrying on general farming successfully, and is a stockholder in the creamery and telephone companies, and a member
of the shipping association. His sister Bertha, who works in La Crosse, resides with him. Mr. Amundson is a Republican
in politics and a member of the Lutheran church.
