Ole Olsberg and wife, Marie, their two daughters, Kirsti and Ingeborg, and his mother and sister arrived in Valley City on the Fourth of July, 1883.

Ole's brothers, Lars and Ivers, had come to America in 1879, and they not only met the Olsbergs in Valley City, but had picked out a quarter of land for their homestead in Oak Hill township.

A diphtheria epidemic caused the loss of the four Olsberg children by 1887. Clara was born in 1890, followed by Oluf, Inga, and Minnie in 1900s. Inga and Oluf are deceased.

In 1892, the Waldheim Church was built and Ole helped in the building of the framework as well as in the collection of funds.

Clara did not marry and became a photo-retoucher for thirty years. She is now retired.

Minnie married Harry Davidson in 1920 and four children were born to them. Three have survived and all are married and have families.
