Do you know `Kristian Amundsen Overlie?

Do you know this man?

This is Kristian Amundsen Overlie. He came to the USA in march 1895. Very little is known about his life.
He showed up in Benson, Minnesota to visit family in 1914. That is the last his family heard of him. He is surrounded by myths. Did he leave traceable information or did he, as one rumour tells, end up as the guest of honour at a "neck-tie party"?

Read about Kristian by going to the stories section.
