Edwin Olsson and Charles Swanson /abt 1900

Charles Otto Swanson (1869-1961) emigrated in 1886 from Misterhult. His cousin, Edwin Olson, was born on the Nils Olson farm in the southwest quarter of Otter Creek section 12 (later known as the Youngberg place). Shortly after 1900, these families began moving to Union County, South Dakota in the Big Springs and Alcester areas. Family legend tells of Charles riding this bicycle all the way from Kiron to South Dakota.
