Birchdale Past & Present: Daniel "Dan" Danielson was born in Mora, Sweden & emigrated to the United States in 1910. His brother, Eric, emigrated also & settled in Alberta, Canada. Dan worked in a lumber company in Minneapolis for a few years before moving to Birchdale, MN.
When Dan first came to Birchdale, he stayed with the Peter & Gunilla Person family & logged south of their place. He married the Person's daughter, Nellie, & they homesteaded about a mile south & east of the Persons.
Dan & Nellie lived in a log house on the homestead for many years & had 2 children: LD & Gertrude. Then they bought 80 acres from Anna Staaf & moved to a new house 1 mile east of the Persons. Dan was known as a strong man as he continued to farm & log. In his later years, he had the help of his grandsons Curtis & Roger Danielson.
Nellie died in 1956. Dan was briefly married to a woman named Lilly & then, in 1965, married Myrtle Elizabeth Pugh Wheelock, the widow of Gerald Wheelock.
