Albin Bengtson Family

Albin Bengtson and his brother, David Bengtson, were early Madrid merchants, owning and operating the Bengtson Brothers Meat Market.

Albin and his wife, Jennie, were parents of four children, the first three: Bernard, Violet, and Margaret, being born in Madrid. The fourth child, Pheobe, was born in Willmar, Minnesota.

The family was all active in the Evangelical Free Church of Madrid. When many of the families in the community decided to make a move to Willmar, Minnesota, the Albin Bengtson family decided to move also. This was in 1919. Albin passed away in 1928. His widow, Jennie, at age 97, lives in Minneapolis with children Bernard and Margaret.
