The story:
Johan Carl Herlaugson Yksendal was Born in 1867.

He immigrated to America i 1884, and came to Minnesota first. Stayed there for a short time, then left to go further west and join his brother Tom and Andrew in the Dakota Territory.
Since then not much more is known concerning him.

Some say he enlisted in the Spanish-American war, and was killed fighting Cuba.
Others say that he joined the army. And that his regiment was sent out into the Indian country on the western frontier, to quell an uprising. He tried to desert camp, and was drowned swimming across a river.
Some also say he changed his name. All attempta to gain more information concerning him have so far failed.

Not married, as far as we know.
