|MARRIAGE*||9 August 1890 || Her parents owned the Swedish boarding house in Sioux City. Young men would come to stay at the boarding house and want to take Grandma Carlson (Anna) out. If her Mother did not like the looks of the guy, she would hide one of Grandma's shoes. Grandma would spend all her time looking for her other shoe and was never able to go out. Her Mother did this over and over again. But when Grandpa Carlson (Edward) came a long, she liked the looks of him and never hid a shoe. So that is why my Grandma got together with my Grandpa.

Steinbeck for a time farmed in Elk Point South Dakota. Anna was a young girl at this time.
Two strangers came to the farm and requested permission to sleep in the barn for the night.

and proceeded to go to the next farm where they stole two horses. It was later discovered, that
the two strangers were the James brothers. This happened in the 1860’s.

|Biography|| || Hi Margo. I found your webpage on Ancestry.com. Do you know who the other children of Nels O. Steinbeck and Marie Anderson were? On the 1900 census in Sioux City, it shows Nels Steinbeck living with the Gus Nelson family and other boarders. This would have been several months after Marie had died. Nels is listed as the father in law of Gus Nelson. Gus' wife was Matilda. I am assuming that Matilda was a daughter of Nels Steinbeck. Do you have any information about her and/or any other children of Nels Steinbeck? Do you have any information on that family in Sweden? I am looking forward to hearing from you.|

|Biography*|| || Nels Steinbeck appropriated they name Steinbeck from his Uncle Rev. Steinbeck in Steneby,|
Sweden. He and his family left
Sweden and arrived in New York, August 20,1865. When Nels and family arrived in America
in 1865, they were under contract with some landowner in Pennsylvania. This contract
required labor on a farm to pay for passage to America. One of his first jobs was to repair a
fence around a Civil War graveyard. The hogs were up rooting the graves. He had to rebury
some of the soldiers as well as mend the fence. There was a misunderstanding about the
nature of the contract. Nels felt justified in breaking the contract . With
the help of a German family he and the family left in the middle of the night and boarded a train
Nels Steinbeck is considered the first Swede to settle in Sioux City. However, there was some
dispute as to who really was the first Swede. To settle the dispute Nels and the other Swede
met in front of a Tavern. Whoever won the fist fight would be declared the first Swede in Sioux
City. Nets won the fight. Thereby having that great distinction. Ha!
Referring back to my Grandfather Edward, the reason he came to America was that land
ownership was very restricted and also to avoid military service.
|CENSUS1900*||1900 ||He appeared on the census in 1900 at Sioux City, IA.1 |
|EMAIL*||2004 || In 2004 Here is some information I have for you. I will go up and look at the family tree later. |
This information comes from a biography of my grandfather, J. Edward Carlson. He came from Sweden around 1883/84 when he was 19 years old. He was born June 11, 1864. He lived with his brother around Ft. Madison, Burlington, Iowa area for a short period of time. There was no employment in that area. He came to Sioux City which was a boom town during the 1880s. He worked as a bread truck driver until he saved enough money to purchase a farm eight miles north of Sioux City on the Broken Kettle Road. When Edward arrived in Sioux City he stayed at a boarding house operated by Nels Olson/Steinbeck and his wife Maria. Olson, would have been his father's name. Nels was born in Stora Bon, Jerbe parish, Dalsland, Sweden, born March 10, 1822. He appropriated the name Steinbeck from his Uncle Rev. Steinbeck in Steneby, Sweden for whom he worked. In America he dropped the Olsson from his name and became known as Steinbeck. In 1854 he married Maria C. Anderson and 11 years later with his family left his native land arriving in New York, August 20, 1865. After short stops in Virginia, Illinois, and Michigan, the family came to Sioux City. Upon arriving in Sioux City in 1867, Nels worked on the Sioux City and Pacific Railroad which was under construction. A short time later he and the family moved to a homestead in the Dakotas (can tell you a story about that concerning Jesse James later) a few miles from Sioux City. A locus or grasshopper scourge forced them to give up the farm and return to Sioux City.
Nels and Maria also operated a boarding house in Sioux City, Iowa. They catered primarily to Swedish, and Norwegian, and German immigrants. Maria was very strong willed and determined woman. She had the business sense and operated the boarding house. Nels, was more or less easy going and at times drank too much. That is putting it nicely, he was a quite a drinker. They had 14 children of whom two were born in Sioux City. Anna and Elmer. Anna was my grandmother. Maria died April 13, 1900. Nels spent his last years with his oldest son, Gustaf and his six brothers and sisters. He refused to share the money Nels and Maria accumulated during their life. He was following the tradition in Sweden where the oldest son gets it all. There were hard feelings with his brothers and sisters. Gus, would be my grandmother's brother you were wondering about. My grandfather, Edward met Anna Steinbeck when he first came to Sioux City and stayed at the boarding house.
I have more information but it concerns my Grandfather and his family and will now skip to this information concerning Nels and Maria. When they arrived in America in 1865 they were under contract with some landowner in Pennsylvania or some Easten State. This contract required labor on a farm to pay for the passage in bringing the family to America. One of his first jobs was to rebury some of the Civil War soldiers as hogs were rooting them up. There was some misunderstanding about the nature of the contract so Nels felt justified in breaking the contract. A German befriended them by helping the family sneak out at night and boarding a train heading west. Evidently, Nels, did not feel re-buring soldiers was farm work.
Nels Steinbeck is considered the first Swedish settler in Sioux City. There was a dispute between Nels and some other Swede as to who was the first Swede to settle in Sioux City. The dispute was settled by a fist fight outside a local tavern. Nels won the fight, thereby he declared himself to be the first Swede to settle in Sioux City. (big deal, Ha)!
A few years ago, there was a historical section in our newspaper. There is a good picture of Nels's family and my grandmother (about 10 yrs old at the time) There claim to fame was that they were the first Swedes to settle in Sioux City. I have the picture and wish I could scan it and send to you but, I will probably have to wait for Page to show up and do it for me. I will try though, ha! I remember being down town at a big flea market. Someone had a list of all the boarders in the in their boarding house. Well I got to go. I have things to do. I will find the family tree and get you the other info later.
