His name was Oden so I think he must have looked like Oden, the Norse God.
He was born in Norway and came to America in 1884, a year before his wife Anna and daughters Karen and Mildred. They settled in Iowa were he was employed as the foreman for the railroad.
Oden and Anna had five more children born in Iowa: Olaf, Martin, Edna, Emmett and Eva.
He was adored by his wife, children and the community. He passed away at age 44.
