Knudt Strand, who was one of the settlers in Sheldon township in the later seventies, now deceased, was a native
of Telemarken, Norway, where he married Sarah Johnson, who was also born in that part of Norway. Their emigration
to this country took place in 1878, and they came directly to Houston county, Minn. For a time Mr. Strand worked
out for others, and then as soon as he had accumulated sufficient means he took land in Sheldon township and engaged
in farming. After spending many years in that occupation he and his wife retired and came to live with their son,
John K., on whose farm in section 26, Sheldon township, Knudt Strand died on Jan. 25,
1910. His wife still resides with her son, above mentioned, who was the youngest of their three children.
