History of Dakota Territory, by George W. Kingsbury, Vol. IV, 1915

REV. ANDREW P. PALM.
 
Rev. A. P. Palm, pastor of the Swedish Baptist church at Lake Norden, has had marked influence over his fellow countrymen and those of Swedish lineage among whom he has lived and labored for the cause of moral progress. Born at Nerike, Sweden, on the 15th of February, 1853, he represents an old family of that land, his parents living and dying there. He was reared at home and in the acquirement of his education attended successively the public and high schools in Sweden. His father was a farmer and he early became familiar with the work of tilling the soil and caring for the crops, applying himself to that occupation in early life.

In 1883, determining to better his condition, Andrew P. Palm came to the new world making his way to Lake Norden, where he arrived on the 20th of May. He had previously engaged in preaching to some extent in Sweden, but was not an ordained minister. He reached Lake Norden on a Sunday afternoon. That evening he delivered a sermon in one of the homes of his fellow countrymen and from that time on has preached almost every Sunday. On the 17th of September, 1888, he joined with others in organizing the Swedish Baptist congregation, of which he was chosen the pastor, and on the 20th of the following month he was regularly ordained to the ministry. For twenty years thereafter he held services in the schoolhouse in the summer months and during the winter seasons the services were usually held in his home - a large residence on his farm two miles from Lake Norden. In 1908 the congregation built a modern church building in Lake Norden and Rev. Palm continues to preside over the congregation. During the years 1893-4-5 he filled the pulpits of the churches at Lake Norden and Huron and his influence has been a potent force in promoting the religious work of his section of the state, especially among the Swedish speaking people. 

Rev. Palm also owns a farm of two hundred and thirty acres in Norden township, Hamlin county, on the shore of Lake Norden, and thereon resided until 1914, when he purchased his town property and took up his abode in the city, renting his farm to his son, A. W. Palm, who has been running it in addition to his work in Watertown, to which reference is made further on in this review. Aside from his other interests Rev. Palm is a stockholder in the Farmers Elevator Company, of which he served as president for two years. 

 It was on the 2d of June, 1883, that the Rev. A. P. Palm was united in marriage to Miss B. Mary Lindell, a native of Sweden, who with her brother, John Lindell, came to the United States in 1880, and each homesteaded a quarter section of land in Hamlin county. To this marriage have been born four children: Anna Maria, the wife of Carl Hawkinson, a resident of Minneapolis, Minnesota; Ellen Augusta, the wife of E. A. Olson, a farmer of Hamlin county; Andrew W., superintendent of the Better Farming Association of Codington county and a graduate of Brookings College, since which time he has been a prominent figure in agricultural circles, especially in disseminating the knowledge of modern scientific methods; and Hannah Lydia, the wife of V. E. Frantz, a druggist and the postmaster of Lake Norden. 
 
In public affairs Rev. Palm has borne an active and helpful part. He was for many years a leading worker in the republican ranks, but in recent years has allied himself on the side of the prohibition cause and was one of the leaders in the organization of the prohibition party in Hamlin county. He has, indeed, done much to advance the interests of temperance, which he has emphasized in his preaching and on many other occasions. He served for fifteen years as treasurer of the school board, was a member of the township board and has been township treasurer for eight years. His position is never an equivocal one. He is always found on the side of advancement, of truth, justice, reform and improvement and his efforts have, indeed, been a potent force for good. 


Karl Oskar Håkansson was born July 29, 1880, at Number 21 Gasemala, Ramdala forsamling, Blekinge, Sweden.

Anna Maria Palm was born February 10, 1884, in Lake Norden, Hamlin Co., SD.

The 1900 U. S. Census taken on June 11, 1900, shows A. P. Palm (age 47) born February 1853 in Sweden to Swedish-born parents and emigrating in 1883 and a Naturalized citizen is a Farmer owning his own farm with a mortgage and living in Norden Twp., Hamlin Co., SD. Living with him is his wife of 17 years, Maria B. Palm (age 55) born November 1844 in Sweden to Swedish-born parents and having emigrated in 1880, with all four of the children born to her still alive. Also living with him are his unmarried children, all born in South Dakota to Swedish-born parents: Anna M. Palm (age 16) born February 1884; Ellen A. Palm (age 15) born August 1885; Andrew Palm (age 13) born April 1887; and Hanna L. Palm (age 11) born March 1889. Also living there is Palm's unmarried sister, Anna L. Palm (age 29) born November 1870 in Sweden to Swedish-born parents, and having emigrated in 1892, a Servant. Three Boarders also live in the household.

Karl Oskar Håkansson emigrated from Sweden in 1900, and crossed the Canadian border at St. Albans, VT.


Karl O. Hakanson (age 19) an unmarried Laborer, departed July 19, 1900, from Liverpool, England, aboard S. S. Tunisian. He paid for his own passage, and has $5 in cash, and is going to join his cousin in Minneapolis, MN.


Karl O. Hakansion arrived July 28, 1900, at the Port of Quebec, Canada.

The 1905 Minnesota State Census taken on June 26, 1905, shows Oscar Hokanson (age 24) born in Sweden to Swedish-born parents and having lived in Minnesota for 4 years and in this district for 2 months is a Laborer living at 2314 6th Street North, 3rd Ward, City of Minneapolis, Hennepin Co., MN.

Living with him is his wife of one year, Anna Hawkinson (age 26) born in South Dakota to Swedish-born parents. Also living there is his step-daughter, Edna C. Hawkinson (age 4) born in Minnesota to Swedish and South Dakota-born parents.

The 1915 South Dakota State Census shows that the Carl Oscar "Charles" Hawkinson family is living in Lake Norden, Hamlin Co., SD. This is also where his father-in-law, Andrew Peter Palm, is living. The following images of this census reveal that Carl and his family arrived in Lake Norden about 1913, presumably to become a Farmer of his father-in-law's farm. This did not prove to be a long-term move, since the family is back in Minneapolis by 1918. Please note that Carl Oscar "Charles" Hawkinson indicated that he was married in 1902, probably to legitimize the birth of Edna C. Palm, who was born in 1906.

July 22, 2015

I appreciate your efforts to document the Hakansson family. I thought that you might like the following information about Karl Oscar Hakansson (the husband of Anna Maria Palm whom you documented so well).

The following information about Carl Oscar Hakansson is from the 1880 Fodelse och Dopbok for Ramdala  forsamling, Blekinge. 

He was born on July 29, 1880 at Number 21 Gasemala, Ramdala forsamling, Blekinge to Hakan Petersson, bonde (farmer) and his wife, Christina Larsdotter. Hakan was 30 years old and Christina was 21 years old.

He was baptized August 8, 1880 in Ramdala and his god parents were Batsman (marine soldier) Lars Petersson and his wife Maria Mansdotter. I know that there are other sources that say that he was born on July 27 but the church record of his birth, clearly written, says that he was born on July 29.

The family continued to live at the above address in Ramdala until at least 1894, the last husforhor for Ramdala that is in Ancestry.com. They must have moved to Frobbestorp at a later date because they are listed there on the ship manifests of their children who went to America.

Best wishes,

Karl Zimmer
