Ivar, Olga and Conrad Christofferson


Charles Christofferson and family of three children came form Lily Lake, Illinois in 1906. They had bought eighty acres of brush land from the Wisconsin Farm Land Company two miles west of Columbia, in Dewhurst Township, Clark Co., Wisconsin. There were no buildings. Mr. Christofferson then bought the forty acres with buildings from John Apfel which was across from his acreage. Mr. Christofferson was active in town offices of Dewhurst. The young people were active in social affairs. Another daughter, Hilda, lived with an aunt in Iowa. She came often to visit with her father, sister, and brothers. Mr. Christofferson passed on in 1926. His son, Conrad, then took the farm for two years when he went of Montana to work for Anaconda Copper Company and later at a hospital in Warm Springs, Montana. Here he married and they moved to California where they lived for many years. The home farm had tenants until it was sold to Clifford Winter of Columbia in 1945.
