Andrew Kvale

Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Kvale

Andrew Kvale came to Minnesota from Norway. When the Coal Lands in what was to become Deepwater Township, McLean County, North Dakota, were opened for homesteading, he filed and drew a number.

He served in the military during World War I. After the war, he settled on his homestead claim, farming it until the mid-1940s. He then rented his land to Ralph Young, and had an auction sale of his machinery. He later sold his farm to Burton O. Young.

After the sale of his farm goods, he returned to Minnesota, where he bought a small tract of timberland, where he lived until his death in the 1950s.

He was married, but his wife, Anna, and infant baby passed away in 1918.

While in Deepwater Township, he was a loyal member of the L.C. Jensen American Legion Post, and a member of the Bethlehem Lutheran Church of Roseglen.
