Carl L. Hamren and Brita Christina Lundqvist

The Hamren family farm was in Otter Creek township, section 13 along what today is called Otter Creek Avenue. Local history tells that Rev. Hamren died by drowning when he tried to cross the flooded Otter Creek after a storm. He was buried in the Kiron Cemetery in the plot owned by his neighbor, C. J. Hoaglund. The two young sons, Carl and Josef, along with their mother farmed their two 40 acre land parcels until 1887. Not much has been located in the local histories about the mother but the names of the two sons appear occasionally. After the sons married, the family sold the land to Swan Mauritz and left the area for larger farms. Here is their family:
