Many of the Finnestad descendants resided in Ogle County, Illinois, several of which spent their lives in the small town of Creston, just east of Rochelle.
My grandfather, Kenneth Finnestad owned a tavern in Creston Illinois. (Kenneth was the great grandson of Ole and Mari)
Here is a story about the history of the building that was at one point my grandfather's tavern, which I came across while visiting the library in Creston.
Here is a photo of the building, taken in August of 2008. I vaguely remember going inside the bar once when I was probably about 4 or 5 years old, before my grandfather closed the tavern.
