Andrew Ernest Rulien was born in Sweden and emigrated to the United States in 1887. He settled with his parents and siblings in New Richmond, St. Croix County, Wisconsin.
Andrew married Christina Holmgren, a native of Denmark, in Clear Lake, Polk County, Wisconsin, on April 28, 1896. He is listed on the 1900 U. S. Federal Census as residing with his wife and three children in New Richmond. They were listed on the 1905 Wisconsin State Census as residing in Hudson, Wisconsin. The family lived in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, as shown on the U. S. Federal Census for 1910. They were living on Congress Street and their infant daughter, Ruth Amanda, died from pneumonia during that time.
Andrew worked in a lumber mill in Eau Claire with his brother Joseph. They were saw filers.
In 1918 the family had relocated to the State of Washington where their names appear on the 1920 U. S. Federal Census as residing in Tacoma Ward 5, Pierce County, Washington.
Andrew and Christina had nine children, seven girls and two boys. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 1946. Christina died from cancer in 1953.
He was lonely after his wife passed away and was corresponding with Artilda Rulien, widow of his brother Joseph. She was lonely as well and they decided to get married to share companionship and mutual love for God and the Bible. They enjoyed three years of happiness together before Andrew passed away due to a stroke. Artilda then returned to Wisconsin to be with her daughter's family.
