Memories of Olga Nordquist:
Eleanore Holm Holt said on May 25, 2005: "A friend of hers in Sweden was given a ticket to travel to the United States to become an indentured servant. Olga took the ticket when the friend decided not to go. She traveled alone to Nova Scotia and then took the train to Minnesota, but no one was there to meet her at the train station. A man noticed her in the station alone and he spoke Swedish and took her home with him. He lived near the people she was going to work for. Olga married Axel Edwin Rapp and they moved to South Dakota and there Olga contracted polio when she was pregnant with her fourth child in 1911. Olga had a weak back after that, so she sent for her mother in Sweden. Her mom brought with her a weaving loom which is now in the Goodhue County Museum in Redwing. She was working on a rug up until three days before her death, and that rug is still on the loom in the museum."

Olga Birgitta Nordquist (1885-1972) was the fifth cousin, twice removed of Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ).
