Wedding Wednesday ~ Nels Andrew Lien & Hilda Gurina Larson

My Great Grandparents:

Hilda Gurina Larson (1874-1956) and Nels (1871-1933) were married in 1894 in Albert Lea, Freeborn County, Minnesota. Hilda was the daughter of Susannah Olsdatter and Svenning Larsson who immigrated from Aust-Agder, Norway. Nels was the son of Anders Gunnarsson Lien and Sigrid Andersdatter Eltun who immigrated from Vang, Oppland, Norway.

Nels & Hilda had 8 children and later homesteaded in Burke County, North Dakota.  They are buried at the Bethel Lutheran Cemetery outside of Powers Lake, North Dakota.

It's one of the two pictures we have. Nels died before my mom was ever born, but I have more pictures of Hilda, who lived until my mother was 10.
