Andrew Lind, though not one of the first arrivals in Sheldon township, came early enough to take a pioneer's
part in the work of local improvement, transforming a part of the wilderness into a productive farm. He was born
in Sweden, March 28, 1838, and on May 21, 1868, married Caroline Nelson, born May 5, 1842. In 1869 he and his wife
emigrated to this country, locating first in Iowa. There, however, they remained but a year, at the end of which
time they removed to Houston county, Minnesota, taking a tract of practically unimproved land in section 10, Sheldon
township, on which their son, Frederick O. Lind, now resides with his mother. This tract Mr. Lind improved into
a good farm and, having finished his lifes' labors, passed away Oct. 5, 1892. During his active career he took
a warm interest in the development of the community and was one of those who organized the Houston creamery. He
and his wife had eight children: Anna S., born Dec. 5, 1870 Charles F., born Jan. 10, 1872; Benjamin N., born Nov.
27, 1873; Emma, born Dec. 3, 1875; Andrew, born Dec. 23, 1877; Sophia, born Oct. 19, 1879; Frederick
O., born Aug. 25, 1882; and Hilda W., born June 12, 1885.
