Anders Olson was a Norwegian settler living in Meeker County. Beginning on August 18, 1862, the Dakota Indians who were living in the area, frustrated with the U.S. Government and the treaties which had been negotiated with them, struck back at the whites, most of whom were settlers living in south central Minnesota. Anders Olson, who also used the surname Bakkedok, was killed by the Dakota on September 22, 1862. His body was found and buried the next day. Anders story is related on page 14 of "Dakota Uprising Victims: Gravestones & Stories," published by Curtis Dahlin in 2007. The inscription on his gravestone reads "Anders Olson Bakkedok, Fodt (born) 30 Juli 1828, Killed by Sioux Indians, 22 Sept, 1862." The Dakota Indians were also called the Sioux.
