Nels & Karen married in Durand Wisconsin and then moved to Canton township in Wisconsin. They had 14 children but 4 died at birth.

In 1881 they moved to Leola, Coddington Co., South Dakota and in 1884 to a farm in Stockholm, Grant Co., South Dakota. In 1900 census Karen is shown as "Ellen" (obviously an error), married 22 years, mother of 13 children but only 4 living (also an error corrected in 1910 census; should have read 4 dead, 9 living); place of birth: Norway; age last birthday: 40; place of birth of mother and father: Norway; year of immigration to USA: 1867 (this is shown as 1868 in 1910 census and 1863 in 1920 census); number of years in USA: 33, not able to read, write or speak English (although in 1910 census shown as able to read, write and speak English) Nels and Karen belonged to the Strandberg Lutheran Church.

Three sons & one daughter of Nels and Karen died in infancy, prior to 1900. Two of the boys were supposedly killed by bulls and buried on the homestead near Stockholm, S.D. Presumeably one of these sons, born in 1879 was an Iver named after his grandfather. 1900 US Census Stockholm, Grant, South Dakota Nelse Sterry, Head, 55, born Jun 1845 [married] 22 years, born Norway [Father] born Norway [Mother] born Norway [migrated] 1869, 31 years in US, naturalised, Farmer Ellen[sic] Sterry, Wife, 40, born Mar 1860 [married 22 years 13 children 4 living] born Norway [Father] born Norway [Mother] born Norway [migrated 1867, 33 years US Andrew Sterry, Son, 18, S, born Jun 1881, born South Dakota, Farm labourer James Sterry, Son, 17, S, born Apr 1883, born South Dakota, at school Chris M Sterry, Son, 15, born Jul 1884, born South Dakota, at school John Sterry, Son, 12, born Oct 1887, born South Dakota, at school Mary Sterry, Dau, 9, born Apr 1891, born South Dakota Enger Sterry, Dau, 7, born Jan 1893, born South Dakota Julia Sterry, Dau, 5, born Dec 1894, born South Dakota Cary Sterry, Dau, 3, born Jul 1896, born South Dakota Clara Sterry, Dau, 2, born Feb 1898, born South Dakota
