From the book - HISTORY OF GOODHUE COUNTY, MN. published in 1909:
Andrew Felien owns a fertile farm of eighty acres in Stanton township, where he is rearing a family of ten sturdy children. He was born in Sweden April 22, 1860, son of Andrew and Kate (Johnson) Feline, who lived and died in the old country. In 1882, at the age of twenty-two years, Andrew left the shores of his native land and made his first venture in America as a workman in St. Paul. He also labored for a short time in Spring Garden, but a short time later came to Stanton. When he first came here he worked about five years as an employee of Johnson Miller. Subsequently he rented Mr. Miller's farm, but three years later went to Dakota and tilled the land there seven years. About a dozen years ago, he came back to this township and purchased the farm which he now owns. Here he has made many improvements on the house and buildings, and has erected a fine windmill. He makes a specialty of dairying and sells milk to the Cannon Falls cheese factory. Politically he is a Republican, and is now serving as treasurer of his school district. He was married in 1887 to Emma Denning, daughter of Sidney and Annie Denning, who came to this county before the war. The children born to Mr. and Mrs. Felien are: Cora, Kattie, Arthur, Lulu, Florence, Clara, Lawrence and Clarence (twins), Edward and Ernest. All the children are at home, and those of suitable age attend school.
