Ole O. Runingen, a large land owner in Houston township, where he is now residing on a farm, though practically retired, was born in Telemarken, Norway, Oct. 9, 1857, and was 12 years old when he came to America. Brought up to agricultural pursuits, he has continued in that line of industry throughout the greater part of a long career, and has achieved more than ordinary success, being now the owner of 726 acres of land. He is also a stockholder in the Houston Creamery Company, the Farmers' Elevator and Telephone companies, and the Shipping Association. For a number of years he served as a member of the county board, of which for a time he was chairman, and also in other offices, including those of town supervisor and member of the school board. Mr. Runingen married Julia Johnson, who was born in Sheldon township, on October 10, 1857, just one day after his own birth. They have been the parents of seven children.
