Note 1: The two Stillmans are possibly duplicates and it is even indicated they might be on the original document. Nothing could be found on a David Stillman in Traill County.

Note 2: Andrew J. Sharkey died in 1882 (2nd Lieutenant, Ohio). His wife Evaline was receiving a widows pension in 1890 and should be listed above under the Relatives Name.

Note 3: Using information from civil war records, this census, and the Norwegian-American Museum it is apparent that Benedict Rauk used the surname 'Olsen/Olson' for civil war/pension records. More details are in his Biography listed here..

Note 4: Skarison Mathias and Mathias Mathison are the same person and his real name is Mattes Matteason.

Note 5: Ole Jensen and Ole Johnson are the same person.

Note 6: A veteran of the Indian Wars. Not in Civil War. Born 1857.

Note 7: In 1890 he lived in Norway, Traill County. He was in Company G, 5th Minnesota Regiment from 5 February to 14 November 1862. Born in Norway about 1841. No other information.

Note 8: Could not find for certainty after numerous searches. There is a Francis M. Battson, Co E, 81st Ill Inf but could not find that he was ever in North Dakota.

Note 9: Could not find information for James Kmit. Believe translator reversed given and surname and this is Knute W. Johnson.

Note 10: Could not find information for Nelson Tedd. It is very possible this is Tosten Nelson.
