----Sources: "Biographical History of Clark and Jackson Counties, Wisconsin" Lewis Publishing company 1891

VICTOR HENDRICKSON, of section 26, Warner Township, Clark County, was born near Christina, Finland, June 14, 1854, the son of John and Mary (Johnson) Hendrickson, both natives of Finland, and both deceased. They had eleven children, six of whom are now living John J., Erick H., Victor, Alexander, Michael and Axel.

The subject of this sketch came to the United States in 1872, and the first summer was spent near Steven's Point, Wisconsin, after which he came to this county, where he has since remained. He made his home first at Greenwood, and then settled on his present farm of eighty acres, forty-four acres of which he has since cleared. He has worked sixteen winters in the pineries, and in driving logs during the springs and summers. Mr. Hendrickson began with nothing, but by hard work and good management he has risen to his present position. He has a fine house, good barns, and all the other necessary out-buildings.

He was married September 20, 1874, to Anna Johnson, daughter of Johannes Johnson, of Eaton Township. Of their four children, three still survive: John W., Maria and Julia. The mother died February 22, 1883, and the father was again married, August 15, 1883, to Ingabor Arntzon (Arntson), who was born in Tondhjem, Norway, December 25, 1864, the daughter of Arnt Christopherson, of Norway. By this union there were five children, three of whom still survive: Alfred, Sophia and Viola. Religiously Mr. Henrickson is a member of the Lutheran Church, socially, of the A.O.U.W., and politically is a Republican.
