Biography of Ole Guttormson
Houston County, MN Biographies

Ole Guttormson, who operates the home farm of 174 acres of good land in section 7, Sheldon township, which farm was established by his father in 1852, was born in this township June 9, 1871, son of Guttorm and Belle A. (Lee) Guttormson. He attended district school in both Sheldon and Yucatan townships and when only eight years old began to make himself useful on his parents' farm. Later, when his father became an invalid, more work devolved upon him, and the management of the place finally came into his hands. He continued in agriculture here until 1913, at which time he rented the farm and moved to Houston village, where he resided for four years working for others. In 1917 he returned to his farm, which he is now operating as a general stock fann, raising cattle, horses and swine. His sisters, Libbe, Anna and Gelena live on the farm and keep house for him. He is a member of the Lutheran church and in politics is independent.
