Born in Evijarvi, Finland, in 1873, John Nylund came to Minnesota in 1896 to work as an iron miner in Ely. After serving a brief stint in the U.S. Army, Nylund returned to Minnesota and married Wendla Elizabeth Pyylampi (born 1877), who had come to the U.S. in 1898. After the births of five of their children, the family moved to South Dakota in 1910 to try homesteading; one more child was born. After just two years, they returned to Ely, Minnesota. More children were born, and in 1920, the family moved to Virginia, Minnesota, where John worked as a carpenter. Eventually the Nylund children grew up and moved away; their various stories are recounted in detail.
