One Ole settled at Perry, Wis. None of his descendants attended the reunion. The story of Knut Bratrud who settled on the land east of town in early pioneer days was especially interesting. He came from Norway in 1851 at the age of 14 and embarked again from Buffalo, N. Y., to go to Wisconsin by boat. About 5 .hours out the ship was rammed by another whose captain was jealous because the ship had more passengers than his. Eight hundred passengers perished when overloaded lifeboats sank. Knut was one or the 82 who was saved and he was the last one off the ship, clad only in scanty underwear. For several years he worked in the lumber camps and finally came to Iowa in 1871 as a teamster for a surveyor. He stayed, was married and reared 11 children, 8 of whom live in this community. His daughter, Alice Sorenson, who is past 80, was one of the oldest persons there. Mike Bray, son of Ole, is also one of the older ones present.
