Ole Theodore Eliasen, a well known general farmer residing in section 13, Yucatan township, was born in this
township, near the Sheldon township line, March 16, 1892, son of Ole and Heggie (Muhie) Eliasen. He was educated
in the school of his district and in the Houston high school and acquired a knowledge of agriculture on his parents'
farm. When about 15 years old he began working out and so continued until 1912, when he engaged in farming on his
own account. Three years later, however, he again began working for others, but returned to independent farming
in 1916. He is now operating a farm of 80 acres, raising both crops and stock with profitable results. He is a
member of St. Peters church at Houston, and in politics is independent. Mr. Eliasen was married Feb. 6, 1918, to
Lena Scattum, who was born in Money Creek township, Houston county, ciaughter of Andrew Scattum. Her mother died
when she was a child, ana her father is now residing with his son near Rushford, Minn. Though among the younger
members of the farming community Mr. and Mrs. Eliasen have already made a good start on the road to prosperity,
and with youth and health and the favorable conditions which now prevail in the demand for all farm products, their
continued success seems well assured. They have one child, Odin Elmer, born Dec. 29, 1918.
