  • Notes 
    • Nels Pedersen Brenholdt was born in Brenholdt, Holbeck Sjelland,Denmark on 3/21/1838. He was married to Karen Marie Jensen. Togetherthey imigrated to the USA in 1870 along with his sister Karen andseveral young couples from Sjelland.
      The group had definite plans to settle in the same area as had youngJens Pedersen Brenholdt, who had come to Wisconsin earlier and thenurged family members and friends to join him here.
      The group of young immigrants bought their land, sight unseen, inMadison for $1.25 an acre. Nels and Karen purchased 160 acres, butlater, realizing it would take years to clear all that thickly woodedland for farming they wrote to brother Christen and family in Denmarkurging them to come over and take over the east 80.
      In Madison these Danish immigrants also bought cattle, wagons, oxenand other needed supplies for making the very difficult journey ofsome 300 miles to St. Croix Falls. At this trading post theypurchased the supplies they would need to get settled on their landwhich was still 12 miles north. It took them many days to reach andclaim their land, for while the first 10 miles were barely passable,the last two had to be cleared by the men while the women and childrenwaited anxiously. Finally they arrived. Their land was to the eastin Laketown township of Polk County. Others would come to settle westof the new road in Sterling Township.
