1881 - 1926

John Solem, the second son of Bringel and Ingeborg Solem, married Clara Cotton, the teacher of the local district school. When that marriage took place, the elder Solems (Bringel & Ingeborg) moved into Canton and John took over sole operation of the family farm. John died very suddenly in 1926 when their youngest child was five and his widow moved the family back to southeastern Minnesota where her family lived.
