From the book - HISTORY OF GOODHUE COUNTY, MN. published in 1909:

Ole Bygd was born in Wanamingo township, where he still resides, March 12, 1857, son of Hans and Catherine (Bolstad) Bygd, natives of Norway, who came to America in 1853, settling in Illinois, where they remained until 1856, when they came to Wanamingo township, where they took up a government claim of 160 acres which the father cleared, built a home and other outbuildings and followed general farming until 1882, when they retired. The mother died in March, 1898, but the father is still living. Ole received his education in the common schools of Wanamingo and worked with his father on the farm until 1882, when he bought the old homestead and has followed a general line of farming. Mr. Bygd was married July 14, 1900, to Sophie Island, daughter of Martin and Gertrude Island, natives of Norway, who came to America and settled in Cherry Grove township. The father died in 1899, but the mother is still living. Mr. and Mrs. Bygd have three children: Lillian, born October 24, 1901; Mary, born February 20, 1903; Helen, born August 2, 1904. Mr. Bygd is a Republican in his politics and is a stockholder in the farmers' elevators at Wanamingo and Kenyon. The family attend the Lutheran church.
