Tuesday's Treasure: Ingeborg Singsaas is Confirmed

One hundred and seven years ago yesterday, a young lady by the name of Ingeborg Singsaas was confirmed by Rev T.K. Solensten. Today's photo was taken on Ingeborg's confirmation day, July 19, 1903.  Ingeborg is my great-great grandmother.

Ingeborg T. Singsaas was born on November 5th, 1887 in Sondre Trondhjem, Norway to Thore and Kari (Ingebritsdatter) Singsaas.  She was the ninth of ten children.  The family came to America on June 5th, 1890.

Ingeborg married Martin B. Christianson two years later on November 28, 1905.  Rev Solensten officiated the wedding ceremony as well.  Ingeborg and Martin had 8 children.

At the age of 38 years, four months, and 28 days, Ingeborg passed away due to heart failure after having been sick with influenza. 

Rev Solensten at the time was reportely from the Toronto, SD area.  The Singsaas family lived in the Hendricks, MN and Lake Hendricks, SD area around the time of Ingeborg's confirmation.
