SOHOLT, OLE A. - Pennington County, South Dakota | OLE A. SOHOLT - South Dakota Gravestone Photos


Bell Park / Rochford Cemetery
Pennington County,
South Dakota

Relatives visiting this gravesite shared a brief history of the Soholt family.
Ole A. Soholt came from Norway as a very young man and started farming/ranching near this location. He also worked in Homestake gold mine in the northern Black Hills. In the early 1900s he returned to Norway to marry Rikka, the first-born daughter of his best friend in Norway: an “arranged marriage.” Ole, Rikka, and three children, Andrew, Ragnar, and Alta, have individual gravestones in this family plot.
