I am trying to track down the following men who took out Homesteads near Palisade, south and west of Eastend, Sask.
Oliver Lars DISTAD, farmed NW Sec. 9, Twp. 5, Rge. 24, W3M.
Mike DISTAD, farmed SW Sec. 9, Twp. 5, Rge. 24, W3M.
Ole A ANDERSON, farmed NW Sec. 16, Twp. 5, Rge. 24, W3M., and
Elmer O ANDERSON, farmed SE Sec. 16, Twp. 5, Rge. 24, W3M.
Is there anyone that may know something about these families. I believe that Oliver and Mike were brothers and that they were born on the Distad Farm, Balestrand, Fjærland, Norway. These Distad's may have been my Great Grandmother's brothers. She was Christina (Kristi) (Stina) L. Bjaastad Distad who married Richard William Anderson. Christina and Richard Anderson homesteaded near Burdett, Alberta in 1907. They had lived in Hayfield, Dodge County, Minnesota prior to moving to Alberta, Canada.
I would love to make contact with anyone that might remember these people or possible relatives.
