Nancy,

I don't think the Lars Anderson/Enderson in the above subject line would be
considered an "early settler" of Kandiyohi County, founded circa 1858.
(The only connection we know so far to Kandiyohi County is that he may have
been buried there; otherwise, according to censuses and our Norway Lister,
Lars Oyane, he lived in Wisconsin, Iowa, Murray County, MN and in 1900,
Pipestone County, MN.) I'm wondering if the county history book author(s)
confused Lars Oyane's "Lars Anderson" with the Lars Enderson who bought land in
Kandiyohi County on August 1, 1866 (Township 120 N, Range 35 W, section 20).

I'm still puzzled why Lars Anderson (b. Jan. 31, 1834 Sogndal) would have
been buried in a county where he probably never lived?! Hope we're tracking
the right guy!
