After his father's death, Augusta married Frank Petterson Tishendorf.
Augusta died in 1899, and Frank remarried in 1900, to Anna Nordquist.
Frank and Anna raised him and his surviving half-brother, Elmer.
At about 16 years of age, he went to live with Frank's half-brother,
Gustav Lindgren, where he worked on the farm.
At age 23, when he registered for the WW I draft, he was working as farm
labor for James Price of rural Bloomfield, Knox, NE. His draft card
describes him as medium in build & height, with blue eyes and brown hair.
The draft card is dated 5 June 1917. I suspect that his employer was
actually James Bryce, who later became his father-in-law.
