    Biographical history

    Ole (Ollie) Moland was born June 17, 1896 in Norway; he was the son of Andreas (1871-1940) and Mali Moland (1868-1944). The family moved from Soreisa, Norway to Climax, Minnesota in 1900. They came to Canada in 1902, settling near Ferry Point, near Edberg, North-West Territories. They homesteaded the southwest quarter of Section 25, Township 43, Range 19, West of the 4th Meridian (25-43-19-W4).

    Ollie attended Ferry Point School beginning in 1904. He enlisted in the First World War on May 14, 1918 and served with the 21st Canadian Reserve Battalion; he was discharged in 1919. Ollie married Bergljot Sundheim (1902-1992) in 1933. They lived on the family farm until 1965.

    They then lived in Penticton, British Columbia before settling in Camrose, Alberta in 1974. Their children include: Arne, Harold and Margaret. Ole Moland died January 22, 1988.
