GUSTAF CARLSON is a native of Sweden, where he was born in 1835. He came to Minnesota in the spring of 1858,
his capital only consisting of a few hundred dollars; he was accompanied by his wife and two children. He nor his
family could not speak a word of English and knew nothing whatever of the customs of our country. He pre-empted
some land and has since prospered to the extent that he owns a fine farm and home and is in very comfortable circumstances.
He is a Lutheran and a republican.
