Johanes Johnson Klongerbo, who was formerly engaged in farming in Caledonia township, was born in Norway, wher
ehe married Bergete Dahl. In 1870 he came to the United States alone, being followed in the next year by the rest
of the family, who left Norway May 9, and arrived in Caledonia township, Houston county, Minn., July 15, the voyage
across the ocean having been made in a sailing vessel. Three years after his arrival here the subject of this sketch
bought a farm, which he operated until 1879, his further career being cut short by an accident from the effects
of which he died. He and his wife had five children: Christina, now living in Hillsboro, N. D.; Soren, residing
in Caledonia township, this county; Hans, who lives in Clearwater county, Minn.; John, a resident of Hillsboro,
N. D.; and Nels J., the present owner of the old homestead.
