Edward Ugland is a worthy representative of that race and blood that have contributed so many thousands of hardy and industrious settlers to the settlement of great northwestern commonwealths. His integrity and thrift are typical, and his bold adventurous spirit drove him early to the wilderness to make a way for himself.

Mr. Ugland was born in Norway, November 25, 1864, where his father, Nels Ugland, followed farming all of his life and where he died full of years and honor. Young Edward attended the schools of his native community, and in 1883 came to the United States, landing in New York, and making his way to Clayton County, Iowa, where he found employment as a farm hand for three years, when he came to Lyon County, and worked out as a farm hand for three years more. At the expiration of this period he bought a farm for himself and started out on that career of independence in which he has been very successful.

The wedding ceremonies of Mr. Ugland and Miss Sena Tobiason were celebrated June 21, 1893, and to this union were born six children: Nels, Theodore, Enga, Arthur, Thelma, and Edwin J. Three of the above family were born in Moody County, South Dakota, and the other three in Lyon County, Iowa.

Mr. Ugland went into Moody County, South Dakota, in 1893, where he bought a farm, and followed its cultivation very assiduously for several years, when he returned to Iowa, settling on the farm in Centennial Township, Lyon County, where he is to be found at the present writing. He is a Republican. By hard work and the best of management and planning he has become quite well-to-do and owns a valuable farm of one hundred and sixty acres, all of which is under high cultivation, and attests the management and work of a real and genuine farmer.
