Biography of Tollef Eiken
Houston County, MN Biographies

Tollef Eiken, a well known and respected resident of Black Hammer Township, was born in this township, son of Torgus Kettleson (Eiken), his parents being among the earliest settlers here. Tollef's early home was a log house which his father erected soon after his arrival in 1855. Like his father, he followed agriculture, the most certain way of getting a living in early days, and in time became a prosperous and esteemed citizen, serving as chairman of the township board and in other offices. He is still a resident here and is one of the prominent members of the Norwegian Lutheran Church. He married Johanna Masvold, a native of Norway.
