Seven generations ago Ole and Berthe Skretting came to the U.S. from Stavanger, Norway. When they entered the U.S. at Ellis Island their last name was changed to Monson. They had four sons who cleared the land and helped populate Barnes County. Today many from the seven generations are scattered across the U.S.
