Joseph passed away in 1882, near St. Charles, Minnesota. Mildred came to South Dakota with her son in 1882, and homesteaded northeast of Erwin. They recorded the first claim in 1883.

PL Coulson notebook: "Dorothy Chase tried to find Ed's dad's grave, but church burned and so did the records, no head stone."

Notes for EDWARD COULSON:
From "Erwin: The First 100 Years" by Pearl Larson

Edward Coulson was born in Liverpool, England on November 21, 1864 to Joseph and Mildred Armstrong Coulson. He came with his parents to St. Charles, MN in 1881 (PL C1 - spent 1 year in MN near St. Charles where his parents were buried). After his father's death he came to South Dakota with his mother to land northeast of Erwin. In 1883 he was only 19 years old, too young to homestead land, so he waited until 1888, when he took over the land his mother homesteaded.
On May 22, 1888 Edward married Mary Golseth, sister of Knute and Martin Golseth of Erwin. (See Golseth). They had four children; Fred Coulson of Brookings, Mildred (Mrs. Francis Larson) of Lake Preston, Hattie Coulson, now living in a Brookings Rest Home, and Edith (Mrs. Dale Dunbar) of Laguna Beach, California.
In 1900, Edward and his family moved into Erwin. (Here Edith was born. Bought the first house on the south side, east of the railroad tracks. Continued a little farming. Land west of Erwin sold to Pete Olson). Later he took a job carrying mail (for a few years). Then in 1919, he decided to move to Santa Cruz, California (Hattie and Edith moved with them). Edward and Mary lived there until their deaths, Edward on October 13, 1942. Mildred and Fred remained in South Dakota.

Pearl Larson's notes:
Mildred Armstrong Coulson purchased some land NE of Erwin, SD. Lived in sod shanty until their house was built. Edward being 19 years old could not buy the land as law stated he had to be 21. It was recorded and signed by Grover Cleveland in 1883 and in 1888, five years later, when Edward was 22 years old, he bought the farm from his mother.

Ed Coulson sold farm in 1916 to Pete Olson. this is now lloyd Carlsons farm. Ed worked in a hardware store in Erwin. Then carried mail part 1918 & 1919. Moved to Santa Cruz in 1919.
*********************************
See Hattie CoulsonBible Copy
Birthdate information from Hattie Coulson bible has Edward's birthdate as Nov 21, 1863, but obituary has 1864.
Bible shows Edward as the last born (after Rebekah) and "Edward Coulson born Novem" is clearly original, but the "21" and probably the "1863" though on Hatties copy, appear not to be the same handwriting as the rest, so Rebekah & Edward's b-days will take some more research.
*****************************
See 1900 Census, Hartland Twp, Kingsbury County, SD shows Edward Coulson 36, born Nov, 1863.
*****************************
Celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary in 1938.
*****************************
Regarding birthplace, a letter from Hattie Coulson to Pearl Larson July 7, 1979 says, "Frances has birthplace South Carlton, never heard that before. Pa always said Lincolnshire, but I belive that ending "shire" means country or township as we have here." Also, "I remember pa saying when they came to New York, some went to Canada, who were they?"
