Nels Okeson

Nels Okeson was the third of Ola and Bengta's four children, born in Skane Province, Sweden in about 1875. His father Ola is said to have favored Nels over his other children and when Ola broke a leg at age 80 and became bedridden, Nels cared for his father until Ola's death 6 years later. Nels inherited the farm and everything else Ola owned. He later lost the property while gambling.

Nels never married or had any children. He is buried in an unmarked grave next to his father and mother near Henning, Minnesota.
