We invited cousins from Flekkefjord to attend our reunion in Shelly, Minnesota, the place where our immigrant ancestors came to make a new home in a new land. Sigrun and Sverre Saether, Hjordis Martinson and Anne Marie Sigbjornsen have expressed their desire to come to the USA to attend a reunion for the family in Shelly. These wonderful cousins have made many of us feel so much at home in Norway, and we would love to do the same for them.
In Norway, they serve coffee and cake to their important visitors, and we can't wait to do the same for them! We would like for them to see Shelly, where all of our roots are, and to learn about what it was like for our ancestors to leave Flekkefjord and come to Minnesota, to a strange new land. We would love to show them the new museum in Shelly, and most of all, to meet all of you!
We have traced our roots back to Norway, and specifically to Flekkefjord, and our family tree is huge! Ellen Olson from Drivdal, Norway married Ole Tobias Staaleson Fodnestol Flikka. Ellen and Ole Tobias came to the USA after Nelliken Olsen Kolbo settled in Coon Prairie, Wisconsin. Nelliken was sister to Ellen. Nelliken sent money back to Norway over the years, and was responsible for many Norwegians coming to this land.
The Fodnestol farm is very near Flekkefjord, and was the birthplace of Ole Tobias. Drivdal was a farm on the Lundvannett, and was a short boat ride from Fodnestol. Ellen and Ole Tobias met and married, and lived at Flikka for quite a time before uprooting their family, and sailing for America. They followed Ellen's brave sister Nelliken, and settled in Shelly, where Nelliken had finally made her home. There are wonderful stories to share among the families, and so many memories to build at this reunion.
Our Norwegian cousins descend from the Fodnestol farm and family--the family of Ole Tobias. They knew right away who our family was when we met them. Sigrun has become our family history expert in Flekkefjord. She has introduced us to many other cousins there, and speaks very good English. Her husband Sverre and Hjordis do not have such a handle on English, but Anne Marie does.
Sigrun took us to Flikka, and showed us where the family lived. We saw where the house was, and saw the "big rock" that we have heard about in our family. The old school is still standing, and it is the nicest little community. It is fun to see Flikka at night, with the lights from the houses along the waters of the Lundevatnet.
If you have questions about how you are related to whom, please direct them to this website. We will be glad to point you in the right direction.

Shelly Township 1896
Click on picture to enlarge
The Beginnings of Shelly Township
Shely Township was first organized January 15, 1874 and included what is now Halstad Township. Polk County was also organized in 1874. Polk County at the time included what is now Norman County.
The first officers were: Supervisors – Ole Oien, Andrew Paulson, and L.B. Larson; Assessor – J.T. Redland; Justices of the Peace – Andrew Hawkins, Ole Halstad; Clerk – John Shely; Treasurer – Peter Paulson; Constables – Enock Johnson, L.L. Houske.
Shely Township took its name from John Shely, who was the first permanent settler in Norman County. John Shely was elected as the first township clerk.
The first official meeting of Shely Township was held in March 1874. The voters confirmed the same officers. Two additional men were elected as road supervisors. Engel Swenson was elected supervisor of road district #1 and J.J. Grothe was elected for road district #2.
In August of 1879, a meeting was called. This meeting may be said to be the first meeting of what is now Shelly Township. Halstad Township had now been organized and split away from Shely Township. It was determined at that time to divide jointly the assets and determine who should be responsible for the road between the two townships. After all was said and done, it was determined that Shely owed Halstad $2.53 in cash.
In 1897, the Great Northern Railroad constructed a depot. They put the name “Shelly” on the new depot, spelling it with two L’s. This is the date of the beginning of the village of Shelly.
These are paraphrased excerpts from the publication, “This Is Our Story Shelly, Minnesota 1897-1997”, by The Shelly Centennial Committee in Shelly, Minnesota, published by Heritage Publishing Company, Box 10 – Hendrum, MN 56550. If you would like to purchase this publication please send a check or money order payable to, Shelly Centennial Book, in the amount of $35.00 (includes S & H), to Nancy Nelson, P.O. Box 123, Shelly, MN 56581.

Kore Drivdal / Johannessen, of Mandal, Norway, moved us to tears when he
showed us, with his wooden blocks, what happened on Sept. 11, 2001--through the
eyes of a six year old boy. Kore is grandson of the late Kore Drivdal of Norway.
