MALE
27 Years

North Dakota
Ramsey

If all goes well, Chronicling America has an obituary for him (not sure links work from the browser address so here goes)
http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn88076526/1922-05-31/ed-1/seq-1/#date1=1907&sort=date&rows=20&words=Olson+OLSON+WILLIAM+William&searchType=basic&sequence=0&index=2&state=North+Dakota&date2=1924&proxtext=william+olson&y=12&x=17&dateFilterType=yearRange&page=53



I have asked his granddaughter to order a copy of the death certificate, which I can only get if I'm a direct descendant, which I'm not - his wife was my Mom's aunt, sister of my grandmother. Or if he's been dead for 100 years, then the information becomes 'public', and according to the obit, which I already had, he died in 1922...



You are able to get dc for genealogical purposes. For instance I just got my step mother's d.c. and she is absolutely no relation to me whatsoever. The only thing missing was her cause of death. You can also get a d.c. because you are a cousin.


I have tried this before in North Dakota. Back when I started genealogy, I could get them, but they changed their state law or practice. So I'll wait for the granddaughter to get the document. :-)

Well here is a long shot. Mr. & Mrs Willie Olson visited an Ed. Olson in the county. There is an Edmund / Edmond Olson b. about 1860 living in Ramsey county, related?

Possibly your William in 1915 North Dakota Census, living with and probably working for Edmond and Signa Olson although without an age or other biographical detail hard to determine for certain:
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QK9C-T459

This is probably Edmond carried as Edward in 1900 census:
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M9VL-PQ2

Edmund's listing in the North Dakota Public Death Index:
OLSON, EDMUND
05/08/1934
Ramsey
MALE
73 Years
07/22/1860
North Dakota
Ramsey

Perhaps an uncle? I'm not sure, but he came in 1882, while Willie was born in Skien in 1894, and emigrated in 1907.

That said, John Zettler, his father-in-law, owned land in the area, he had been farming the Fogner farm, and on his obit, the pallbearer names are from that same area: Pall bearers were Henry Keogh, Arthur Snider, Edwin Mandt, Geo. Dahlen, Alvin Kleven, and H. F. Schneiderjohn.

Well, here is a total long shot and he contradicts both the birthdate and place and migration date in US records thus far, #21 William b 1 June 1895 and was still in Norway in 1910:
SAKO, Solum kirkebøker, G/Gb/L0003: Klokkerbok nr. II 3, 1880-1898, s. 55
Brukslenke for sidevisning: https://media.digitalarkivet.no/kb20061130060172

And another in vestre Porsgrunn records who was born either Mar or May 17 1894 # 21 Ole William Olsen:
SAKO, Porsgrunn kirkebøker , F/Fa/L0008: Ministerialbok nr. 8, 1878-1895, s. 149
Brukslenke for sidevisning: https://media.digitalarkivet.no/kb20060612030396

And another in Gjerpen Hans Olsen b 17 May 1896 1/2 of a set of twins #65
SAKO, Gjerpen kirkebøker, G/Ga/L0002: Klokkerbok nr. I 2, 1883-1900, s. 164
Brukslenke for sidevisning: https://media.digitalarkivet.no/kb20061129010177

Also in Gjerpen #39 Vilhelm Johansen b 15 May 1894:
SAKO, Gjerpen kirkebøker, G/Ga/L0002: Klokkerbok nr. I 2, 1883-1900, s. 137
Brukslenke for sidevisning: https://media.digitalarkivet.no/kb20061129010150

Here is a William Olson b abt 1894 living in Ohio with his father Ole Oleson in 1910:
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:ML6Y-C6L

In looking at the actual page for these it appears that these two were supposed to be counted in Goldwood Township. There is another Olson born in Norway who came to US in 1907 residing in Goldwood. Her name is Anna and she is a niece to Mary and Andrew Peterson. Mary is born Norway and Andrew is born Sweden:
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:ML6Y-CH3

They were still in Cuyahoga county in 1920:
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MD1V-X28

This William is out of consideration because he is living with his sister Anna in 1920 as a single man:
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MD1K-7CB

He is also born in Tromso 3 Apr 1894:

His granddaughter got the death certificate. It states the father as Ole Vettelson and the mother as Gertie Knudsen.
