Saunders County, NE Biographies





H. F. Carlson, who owns and operates two hundred and forty acres of good land in Richland township, is well known throughout the county and has the respect of all who have come in contact with him. A native of Sweden, he was born on the 1st of August, 1858, a son of Victor and Mary Carlson. The father came to the United States and settled in Chicago in 1870, but both he and his wife are now deceased.

H. F. Carlson received his education in Sweden and when fourteen years of age came to America with his mother, his father having preceded them two years. Our subject entered the employ of the McCormick Harvester Company, with which he remained for about nine years, but in the spring of 1883 he came to Saunders county, Nebraska, and purchased one hundred and sixty acres in Rock Creek township, where be lived until 1899. He then traded farms with his father in law, thus acquiring title to the two hundred and forty acres in Richland township where he now lives. He is energetic and progressive and received a good income from his land.

On the 23d of August, 1889, Mr. Carlson married Miss Elna Martinson, a daughter of John and Nellie Martinson. Mr. and Mrs. Carlson have seven children, all of whom are at home: Edmund, Walter, Agnes, Reuben, Edna, Minnie and Helen.

Mr. Carlson casts his ballot in support of the men and measures of the democratic party where national issues are involved but at local elections votes independently. He holds membership in the Swedish Mission church in Swedeburg and his life conforms to high standards of morality. The prosperity which he has gained is especially commendable as he began his independent career without capital and without the aid of influential friends.
