The Norwegian

Settler to the Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory (Oklahoma), 1892

By Artist Frank M. Thomas  

Original Art Canvas, 20" x 28"   Artist's Personal Collection

 Artist Frank Thomas, an avid family genealogist for the past 50 years, found that his great grandfather Tonnes Andreas Jenson, born in 1842, Flekkefjord, Norway, had served as a Norwegian sailor.

In 1870, Tonnes arrived in the USA and married Caroline Porter in Missouri.   They were among the first white settlers into the Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory (Oklahoma) by 1892.   He settled his family at the Poteau Indian Post, in the wooded hill country of that region.   Remembered today as Thomas Andrew Jenson, many of his descendants still live in and around Poteau... a college town in eastern Oklahoma.
