CHRISTIAN LARSON, of section 36, Warner Township, Clark County, was born in Trondhjem, Norway, November 10, 1845, the son of Lars Anderson, who was born in Christiania, same country, in 1815. He was the father of four children, three of whom are still living Andrew, of Jackson County Anthony and Christian, in Clark County. The father died in this county in 1878, and the mother now lives with her son, the subject of this sketch. Christian came to the United States in 1865, and first lived in Black River Falls, Wisconsin but in 1868 came to this county with his father and brother Anthony, where they all kept "bach" in their pole shanty. Mr. Larson has worked in the woods nearly every winter since he came to Clark County. He owns a fine farm of eighty acres, thirty-five of which is cleared, where he also has a shop in which he makes spinning-wheels, cabinet, scroll and bracket work. He is an enterprising and public-spirited citizen.

He was married January 1, 1873, to Mary Olson, who was born in Norway, the daughter of Ole Ostenson, and they have two children--Mary C. and Laura O. The family are members of the Lutheran Church, and the father is a Republican politically.
