Tollef O. Skree, who is engaged in successfully operating the farm of 140 acres in section 16, Sheldon township,
which was established by his father, was born in Telemarken, Norway, in January, 1849, son of Ole
Halvorson Skree and his wife, whose maiden name was Sarah H. Michaelson. After coming to this township in childhood
with his parents, he attended district school, though his opportunities were limited, as at an early age he had
to make himself useful on the farm. At the age of twenty years he took charge of the farm and looked after his
mother's interests until her death. Here he has continued to reside, engaged in general farming. The property is
well improved and Mr. Skree receives good prices for his crops and stock. He is a member of the Norwegian Lutheran
church, and in politics is an independent Republican.
