PAST AND PRESENT OF CHIPPEWA COUNTY
Andrew Pederson, a prosperous and representative farmer of Auburn township, was born in Norway in 1871. When he was twelve years of age he emigrated to America and located immediately in Chippewa county where he worked in the lumber woods for several years. At length he turned his attention to farming, buying the property upon it, erecting the buildings and installing the machinery. He engages in general farming and is especially interested in raising high-grade sheep. Being a practical and progressive
business man his labors have been attended with a gratifying degree of success and he is now numbered among the prominent and able agriculturists of this locality.
Mr. Pederson married Miss Helga Ludrickson and they have become the parents of five children: Emil, Inga, Hilga, Aagot and Clara. The parents are members of the Norwegian Lutheran church and Mr. Pederson gives his political allegiance to the republican party. He is deeply interested in the welfare and advancement of the county where he has resided since childhood and has made his individual success an important factor in general progress.
