Bio Photo My name is Lyndon Barsten. I am a son of Norway, so to speak. My family lived on Barsten farm (gard) in Norway. My grandfather was born Oswald Olai Barsten near Nessett and Molde Norway in 1880. He came to Wisconsin in 1898, and married my grandmother, Bessie Hanson, in 1909. Bessie (Christina) had been a domestic for Martin Pattison, the lumber baron. They had two children, Lyndon and Corrine. Corrine died as a baby in 1914, killed by a doctor's prescription. In the historical tradition of Norway, Oswald became Oswald Knutson; as he was Knut Barsten's son. The family business 1917-1965 was Broadway Dry Cleaners in Superior. I am the son of Lyndon and Lucille Knutson. My sister is Beth Knutson-Messich. I changed my name to the historic farm name in honor of my family.
