  • Note:
    "Ole Olson Vaagsland was born near Tordal, Norway on the first of May 1826 and baptised on the fifteenth. He was confirmed on the 4th of September in 1842. Often church records of this sort are the only written records of a person's existance. He immigrated to Wisconsin with his parents in 1850. Ole's last name was changed to Wogsland like everyone else who immigrated in this group. He married Gunhild O. Andersdotter who was also born in Norway (whether this was before or after his immigration is unknown). Together they had eight children.
    Ole is known to have worked as a county clerk in Wisconsin. He also has the distinction of being the first Norwegian immigrant elected to a Portage County office, namely that of 2nd District Supervisor in 1866. He had been appointed to the office in 1865 and served in it until 1868. Ole became postmaster of Alban in 1873 and in 1874 was elected to the county register of deeds. He died 25 June 1879 in New Hope Town, WI." http://wogsland.org/genealogy/ole_olson_vaagsland_jr.html

    According to Emma Wogsland, in a letter written to Bernice (Johns) Meeker, dated June 19, 1965, brothers Stiner, Eric (Emma's father), Halvor and Ole all came from Norway together. The year is not known. They came from Svelland ("Shepland").

    Politically, the Norwegians, although a minority group in the county and rather isolated in the early period from the county seat by bad roads and slow transportation, have held several offices on the county and state levels. The first to achieve elective office on the county level was Ole O. Wogsland who was appointed one of the three district supervisors of the county in 1965 under an appointment by the governor. In 1866 he became a duly elected supervisor of the Second District and served until 1868. In 1874 he was elected register of deeds.

    Page 210
    After 1862, as noted earlier, the county was governed for several years by three district supervisors. In the spring of 1865 a vacancy occursed on the board which was filled by a direct appointment of Governor James T. Lewis, signed at Madison on March 11, who named Ole O. Wogsland of New Hope to act as supervisor "in and for the Second Disctrict. . . until the first Monday of January next and until his successor is elected and qualified. . ." Wogsland was duly elected in the spring of 1866 and served until 1868.
    New Hope, the township of, pp. [341]-348
    Page [341]-342
    NEW HOPE, The Township of
    In a document written in long hand by a deputy clerk of Portage County on a rather ordinary piece of writing paper, it was announced that the County Board, at a meeting held Nov. 11, 1856 had determined "that all that portion of the county of Portage composed of Township twenty four (24) and twenty five (25) of Range ten (10) be and hereby is set off and shall for the purpose of town government constitute the town of New Hope and shall hold its first town meeting on the first Monday of December next at the house of Johann Oleson Hole."
    The circumstances of this document and the timing of the election for December rather than the following spring suggests that an extraordinary situation had arisen in eastern Portage County. A township of 72 sections known as Peru (still pronounced "pee-roo" by some) had already been organized on April 1, 1856 at an election held at Frederick Reinhardt's house. Ole Olsen Wrolstad had been elected town chairman; Sondre Gunderson (Loberg) and Leonard Perry, supervisors; Ole O. Wogsland, clerk; and Peder Halvorson (Houen), treasurer. But some question had arisen which caused this electrion to be considered, if not illegal, at least irregular. Probably this explains why the deputy clerk, who forgot to attach the County Board seal to the document, was in such a hurry when he sent out the notice of a special election. The new name of New Hope, replacing Peru, was allegedly suggested by Frederick Reinhardt, a German, and two Norwegians. Reinhardt was from Saxony. He entered the United States at New York on Aug. 23, 1849 and applied for naturalization at Plover on Dec. 27, 1853. It is quite possible that enroute to Portage County he spent a short time with German acquaintances in or near New Hope, Pennsylvania, and from this experience suggested the same name for the township which he helped to organize.
    At the new election of the township, which fell on Dec. 12, 1856, Leonard Perry replaced Wrolstad as chairman whil Wrolstad and Simon Iverson were elected supervisors. John O. Hole became town clerk as well as one of the assessors; Nils Stiansen the second assessor; Ole O. Wogsland, John O. Hole, Sondre Gunderson and George R. Lawton, justices of the peace; and Peter Peterson Kjaerra, treasurer. Apparently Kjaerra did not qualify as a later entry reveals that Wrolstad had been appointed treasurer.
    ...
    Another early country store was operated by Ole O. Wogsland souht of Peru on Trunk T. A post office, called Alban, in honor of James S. Alban of Plover, was established in northern New Hope on Jan. 29, 1873 with Ole O. Wogsland as postmaster. Veterans of the township agree that this was located south of Peru on what is still the Walter Wogsland farm The post office, still calling itself Alban, was moved into the town of Alban in 1880. The first reference, however, to Wogsland's store appears in 1868 when the town board met there.
