Elling’s granddaughter, Terry Oscarson, has sent us a lot of new pictures of Elling and his family. In the collection there also was a picture of Nils Lillejord’s three sons. That picture is to be found in the post Nels’ family.

Elling was a bachelor for a long time and married Ella Bergland at the age of 49 and got their two living children after the age of 60. He died in 1930.

Elling was both a farmer, a land owner and a business man. He had a farm near Wheaton, MN, where he also was in banking business.
