Flag of the United States

Sara was born in 1872 in Ulriksfors, Sweden, one mile east of Stromsund, Sweden. She is the sixth of eight children born to Per Olsson and Kerstin Michelsdotter.

On August 26, 1904, in Uranienborg, Norway, she married Julius Christian Nordland of Norway, a marine engineer. Two years prior they had had a child, Just Christian Rudolph "Rudy", in Oslo, Norway. In that same year, Julius, Sarah, and Rudy immigrated to the United States, arriving at Ellis Island. They lived in Brooklyn for five years where they welcomed a daughter, Sonja Gudrun Amalia, and a son, Ragnar Wilhelm Harding, then moved to Hettinger, North Dakota, where six to eight months earlier Julius had built a 3-room house for them. A year after moving, they gave birth to a son, Sten Walter Ornulf "Ernie", in their home, which they nicknamed the "Sod Hut". They homesteaded 80 acres a mile from Hettinger for two years, then claimed another 80 acres seven miles from town. In 1914, they moved to Minneapolis. Sarah passed away in 1960.
