60th wedding anniversary at Hope Lutheran Church in Walker MN

Pope County Tribune, April 10, 1941
"Have Sixtieth Wedding Celebration"
Program Held at Hope Lutheran Church at Walker Sunday, March 30.

Mr. and Mrs. Sam Evenson were honored on their 60th wedding anniversary Sunday, March 30, at Hope Lutheran Church, Walker. The altar was decorated with a beautiful basket of roses and carnations, the gift of their children.

The Rev. Alfred Gunderson, pastor of Hope Lutheran, brought the message at the morning festival service. He brought an inspirational message, using as his text, "Be ye therefore imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love, even as Christ also loved you, and gave himself up for us," taken from Ephesians 5:1-2. Following the service a delicious wedding dinner was served in the church parlors by the ladies aids. The tables were beautifully decorated in a pink and white color scheme. A lovely wedding cake, made and artistically decorated by Mr. J. O. Huset, was the centerpiece. At 2:30 o'clock, Rev. Gunderson presided at the following informal program: Prelude, "Wedding Day at Troldhaugen," Greig, Miss Adele Magelssen; Devotion, Rev. Gunderson; Song, "Sweet Hour of Prayer," by Delores Arneson of Hoffman, a great granddaughter; Recitation, "Nebuchadnezzar" by Violet Robinson of Brooten, a granddaughter; Piano Solo, "Chalet Girls Sunday", by Miss Naomi Magelssen; "To Grandpa and Grandma," a recitation by Janice Evenson, a granddaughter.

Rev. Gunderson, in addressing Mr. Evenson said, "Perhaps if you were to tell your wife what's on your heart today, you'd say it in the words of the poet:
"Now we shared our days of gladness And we'd met our days of pain, Times when sky was blue and cloudless; Then the long grey spells of rain. Days it seemed I couldn't travel, Not another weary mile Till I'd catch the glory shining, Out of mother's cheery smile. We've known the joy of children, Yes and had to lose a few (just two) And them we kept the longest-- Well, some ways we've lost them too. And somehow it came over me, How we'd traveled down the years, Till my eyes was sort o'blinded With a sudden mist of tears. Then settin' in that country house Where everything was fine, I stopped and says to mother, As I took her hand in mine, "We didn't have the fixin's, Nor the fuss and feathers too, But Mother, I got paradise that day I wedded you." So we'er back just where we started On that old-time wedding day, Just a trudgin' on together, Toward the sunset of life's way. And tho' hearts are sometimes weary Eyes grow dim and footsteps slow Still we hear love's song at twilight, Sweet as in the long ago."

Then Rev. Gunderson continued by reading excerpts from the family history, mentioning that Mr. and Mrs. Evenson were united in marriage on the first day of April 1881 at the bride's home in Barsness twp., Pope county, Minnesota by Rev. Hjermstad. Mr. Evenson was born in Dane county, Wis., June 9, 1859 to Mr. and Mrs. Hans Evenson. Mrs. Evenson was born April 18, 1863 to Tore and Guri Disrud in Valdrin, Norway. She came here with her parents when she was a year old. Thirteen children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Evenson, eleven of whom are living and were all present at the anniversary Sunday. There are 45 grandchildren and 31 great grandchildren.

Mr. and Mrs. Evenson lived the first 27 years of their married life in Pope county; in 1909 they homesteaded near Walker where they now reside. A song "Jeg Elsker Dig" was sung by Mrs. C. F. Evenson. Mr. Arne Hovde spoke in behalf of the neighbors. Mr. Walter Arneson, of Hoffman spoke for the grandchildren. Mrs. Clarence Evenson of Walker spoke for the 11 "in-laws". Mrs. Mabel Huset of Parkers Prairie spoke for the children and presented a gift from the children to the parents. Miss Josephine McDonald read a poem, "Not Growing Old." The Hope Lutheran Church Choir, under the direction of Mrs. C. F. Evenson then sang "Finlandia" by Sebelius. Preceding the closing hymn and benediction, Rev. Gunderson presented a gift of silver to the Evensons from the relatives and friends.

Out of town relatives and friends present were the following: Mr. and Mrs. Henry Halvorson, Braham, Minn., (nephew to Mr. Evenson); Mrs. Clarence Swift, Waterville, Minn., (niece to Mr. Evenson); Henry Disrud and daughter, Glenore, Rolla, N.

50th wedding anniversary at the farm in Walker MN

Pope Country Tribune, April 9, 1931
"Pioneers Celebrate Golden Wedding"

Mr. and Mrs. Samuel H. Evenson celebrate 50th anniversary at Walker. A golden wedding of interest to many Pope County people took place at Walker, Minnesota on Wednesday, April 1st, when Mr. and Mrs. Samuel H. Evenson celebrated the event of half a century ago. The celebration came as a genuine surprise to Mr. and Mrs. Evenson. They had planned to return to their old home near Starbuck to celebrate the event on the 12th of April as it was not convenient to arrange fore everything until then. On Tuesday, the day before the wedding, their son, Clarence, took them to Bemidji and managed to delay the trip home until after dark. When the parents came home they found all their children there and also two brothers of Mrs. Evenson and their wives. This was the first happy surprise to have all the children home again. On Wednesday, April 1, at ten o'clock friends started to pour in to help celebrate the great event. A bountiful wedding dinner was served and an appropriate program was held during the afternoon. Rev. Gjerde of Bemidji who took the place of Rev. Magelson who was sick, was present during the day. A very delightful day was enjoyed by all who participated. Samuel H. Evenson and Ingri Disrud were married April 1, 1881 at the home of the bride, Mr. and Mrs. Thore Disrud in the town of Barsness, Pope County. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Jermstad. April 1, 1881 was a great contrast to April 1st of this year. At the time there was so much snow that the fences were covered and it was impossible to follow the roads. Many of the people who attended the wedding therefore came on skiis. Lien Brothers came twenty miles on skiis to attend the wedding. The family lived in Pope County until twenty-two years ago when they moved to Walker, Minnesota where they have made their home. Eleven children, seven girls and four boys blessed their home. All are living and well. On May 29, 1909 the family decided to move to Walker, Minnesota. They drove with two covered wagons, taking with them 5 horses, 24 head of cattle and 80 sheep. The adventure was like living a pioneer life over again as there were no roads to speak of in their new destination and the part of the country they covered going there. They arrived on June 6th. Since that time they have established themselves a comfortable home and have done their share in the development of the new country. Their children who were home to help them celebrate the happy event were: Mrs. H. O. Olson (Jennie), Terrace; Mrs. Floyd Robinson (Ida) of Brooten; Mrs. Alfred Erickson (Anna) Rice Lake, Wis.; Mrs. Sarah Berg, Starbuck; Mrs. J. O. Huset (Mabel), Long Prairie; Mrs. Adolph Brederson (Florence) Starbuck; Mrs. Lloyd Kennedy (Alice) Walker; Henry, Clarence and Gilman Evenson of Walker, and Emil Evenson of Terrace. Mr. and Mrs. Theo. Disrud and Mr. and Mrs. Henry Disrud, brothers of Mrs. Evenson were present at the golden wedding.

Glenwood Herald, April 9, 1931 "Former Pope Couple Have Golden Wedding"
At the golden wedding in Turtle Lake township, Cass County, Minn. April 1, 1931, people of the community started to gather at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel H. Evenson to help celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of that worthy couple. On April 1, 1881 at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Thore Disrud in Barsness township, Pope county, Minn., Mr. Samuel H. Evenson and Ingri Disrud were married by Rev. H. D. Hjermstad. The roads on that day were so bad that no teams could be used owing to the deep snow and drifts that completely covered the fences so the wedding guests mostly came on skiis up to 16 miles distant, such as Thorstein and Mikkel Lien, Samson Olson and Kristen Halvorson who all came on skiis the distance of 16 miles or more. Today April 1, 1931 we all used automobiles, have good roads only a little muddy in places but give no trouble. After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Evenson continued to reside in Pope county until the spring of 1909 when they moved to Cass county, where they now resides. They have raised a family of 11 children, seven girls and four boys namely: Ida, Mrs. Floyd Robinson, Brooten, Minn.; Henry, Turtle Lake township; Jennie, Mrs. Hans Olson, Terrace, Minn.; Emil, Terrace, Minn.; Annie, Mrs. Alfred Erickson, Rice Lake, Wis.; Sarah, Mrs. Anton Berg, Starbuck, Minn.; Mabel, Mrs. J. O. Huset, Long Prairie, Minn.; Gilman, Turtle Lake township; Florence, Mrs. Adolph Bredeson, Starbuck, Minn.; Clarence at home and Alice, Mrs. Lloyd Kennedy, Walker, Minn. There are 38 grand children and 8 great grand children. Mr. and Mrs. Evenson started out with their family, household effects and stock with two covered wagons, bringing five horses, 24 head of cattle and 80 sheep on May the 28, arriving June 6, 1909. There were no roads from Cyphers to their new home so they had to chop down trees in order to get to their homestead. That was 22 years ago this spring. Quite a difference then and now eh. All the children and quite a few of the grand children also some of the great grand children were present at this golden wedding. A good program was arranged for the occasion. Speeches were made by Rev. Jerdee of Bemidji, Minn., Walter Arneson of St. Cloud, Minn. Ed Dahly made the presentation speech and was followed by Floyd Robinson of Brooten, Minn. Fifty years of married life was read by Miss Eleanor Arneson of Brooten. Several songs were sung by Edna and Ralph Dahly and Nora Christianson and three musical selections were rendered on two violins and piano by Hans Olson and Adolph Bredeson playing violins and Mrs. Bredeson on the piano. There were over two hundred guests present and a bounteous dinner was served by the guests. A sum of money, $75 in gold and $25 in silver was given Mr. and Mrs. Evenson by their relatives and friends, expressive of the high honor and esteem in which they are held.

"An unusual ancestor - A love story"
by Aindride Karlsgodt

Herman Syverson (Sjugurdson) Bøen was 22 years when this story takes place. He was 23 when he married Kari, who was 19 at the time and he thought she was the most beautiful girl in the world. He lived in Reinli and she in Gol with the mountains in between, yet he made 18 trips over the mountain to see her.
It was a sunny fall day in 1758. The Raudal Mountain gleamed in red and gold. The water was blinking with black shadows near land.
A young boy on horseback was on his way across the mountains. He was deep in thought and let his horse lead the course. He was not completely happy, Herman Syverson Bøen, as he sat, loose and light, on his beautiful horse. He had traveled this way time and again during the last two years, but was there any benefit to it? On arrival in Gol he mostly occupied himself with cattle trade.
But the real reason for his travels was his hope of meeting a young girl - Kari Olsdatter Hoftun. She was only 16 years old at the time, but never had he met a girl like her. She was slim and rather petite with two thick braids hanging down her chest and eyes like stars. Otherwise it was not easy to describe her, but he had her picture firmly in his mind and it had followed him day and night since that time.
He had barely gotten to talk to her, however that had happened. She had dimples in her cheeks and was quick to answer. He had noticed that. But around midnight she suddenly disappeared from the dance, both she and the girl who had accompanied her.
Since that time, Herman had traveled across the mountains time after time. He was happy he had the cattle trade as an excuse. Nobody could say he traveled aimlessly. Thus, he had also gotten entrance to Hoftun, and made a couple of deals with Ola, Kari's father. Ola was a proud farmer. He knew his position was solid. And he also knew what a stunningly beautiful daughter he had. Kari was a little bit spoiled; it could not be helped, as treasured as she was. She turned around on her heel with a rippling laugh. Gradually she had started to give Herman glances. And after a while, the two had met more often. Yes, Kari had lost her heart to the boy from Reinli. And then they had agreed to stay together and both were very happy.
But Kari had many suitors, handsome, as well as wealthy. Also she was still too young. Her father didn't think there was a rush to tie her down. He well knew how the two young ones felt, but Herman had the feeling that he was not found to be good enough. Or, maybe, it was that he was not rich enough. He was well received at Hoftun, but he had still not received a yes word from Ola. And now he felt that there had to be a decision. He could no longer go around like a fool. This had to be his last trip if he did not get a yes from Ola this time either. He doubted it and, therefore, he was not happy. He did not want to force himself on the family. Kari was not to have a falling out with her family for his sake. She was always so happy and he definitely did not want to ruin her joy of life. He loved her too much for that. But if she were not to become his wife, he would never be happy again.
The sun was shining, and the horseshoes clattered against the rocks in the road. One ought to be happy on such a beautiful day, especially as one was on one's way to the best girl in the whole world.
At Hoftun Herman was well received with food and drinks. It was Friday evening and Kari was beaming with her whole body. Late that night Herman sat with Ola at the table with a swig. Herman said, "I must get a real answer from you, Ola. You know how much I love Kari, and if I get her, I'll protect her with my last drop of blood."
Ola sat for awhile while staring seriously into space. Then he grinned and laughed a little. "You are talking, Herman, there can't be that much of a hurry, and you are both so young."
But Herman viewed this as a rejection and he went to bed with a heavy heart.
The next morning Ola wanted to show Herman various things on the farm. Herman followed him as if in a trance, neither hearing nor seeing.
In the afternoon he went to the stable. He wanted to leave; he could not take it any more. But to leave Kari - Kari! Herman hugged his horse and wept. Then, behind him he heard light footsteps and before he could compose himself, Kari was there. "Herman, why are you standing here?"
He embraced Kari. He did not want her to understand that he was saying goodbye to his brightest and best friend. He did not usually cry, but this time he had to. Kari said, "Do not cry, Herman. You will get me!"
With a gasp, Herman unleashed the horse. But at the door he met Ola. "Put the horse back in, Herman. You must stay till tomorrow. I have planned to invite some friends and neighbors tonight for a little party."
Herman was embarrassed. Let alone that Kari had seen him cry, but now he was afraid that Ola noticed that he was red-eyed. And what was it Ola meant? He looked so honest and straight forward. The result was Herman had to put the horse back in the stable.
At night there was a great gaiety at Hoftun. Many guests were gathered, family and friends, old and young. Everyone ate and drank. On such a farm as this it did not take long to prepare for a party.
There were also many boys present who would have liked to see Kari as their wife. One of them was extremely angry with Herman. And someone had gotten a hold of a big fighter who was going to beat Herman up. This guy was sneaking around outside, and the rejected suitor took care to feed him plenty of liquor. But Ola, who was puttering about, had discovered this and he had his own ideas about it. He took Herman aside and asked him to look out for this "knife puller." Ola was not dumb and realized that Herman was an honest man, and he was really beginning to be fond of him.
The dancing was lively and fast. The fighter sneaked inside and mixed with the guests. Ola saw it, but did not say anything. Kari saw it also. But Herman did not know everybody who was gathered in the guest hall at Hoftun that evening.
The musician started to play a "Halling," dancing and handsprings. The stranger softened up by many drinks began to jump around. "Here there are boys from Hallingdal and Valdres." he shouted and moved toward Herman. "Oervena" and an unstoppable anger got hold of Herman. Was half the population of Gol going to make a fool of him? Barely conscious of how, he suddenly found himself on the dance floor in a wild "Halling" dance. "Yes, here there are boys from Hallingdal and Valdres," he shouted. Suddenly there was a glint from a knife in the palm of a hand. "Watch out Herman!" shouted Kari. Herman saw and understood. He was far from a fighting man, but he was strong, and he could kick 18 Kvart (approx. 2.8 meters) in hallingkicks. He turned abruptly around and kicked his hallingkick, hitting the "knife puller" under his chin. He fell on the floor. Herman was on him, grabbed him by the shirt collar and the seat of his pants and sent him flying out through the window, glass and wood splinters after him.
There followed some commotion, but Ola stepped forward and asked everyone to be quiet.
"I did not send for this knife puller," he said. "And when someone comes uninvited and then behaves like that, he must take what he gets. Now I asking that whoever brought along this fellow go out and take care of him and take him home. I do not want him lying like a slaughtered body outside my door. But to you, Herman, I say that not until now did I see what a kind of a man you are. You can defend yourself and I am sure you are steady enough for a wife to lean on. I want you to know that from this day on you are welcome as a son-in-law at Hoftun." With that he went over to Herman and gave him his hands.
Kari Olsdatter Hoftun and Herman Syversen Bøen were now engaged to be married. The wedding took place at Hoftun the next summer in 1759. Kari was 19 years old and Herman was 23 years old. Kari then moved to Bøen. Ola Hoftun had become very fond of Herman. And he said that Kari, among other things, would have a dowry of hundred daler for each trip Herman had made across the mountains to propose to her. It turned out to be 18 times.
During the winter after the wedding, Herman skied across to pick up the 1800 daler. On the way back he ran into a snowstorm. He lost track of where he was, and he slid out over Skurvknatten, west of Sturndalen. He ended up practically on his head. The heavy leather backpack slid forward over his neck and head and pressed him down into the snow. He was totally confused after the fall, and it seemed he was stuck. But, after a while, he managed to twist enough to get a hold of his knife and finally was able to cut the straps of the backpack. But it was a very close call.
Herman and Kari lived so harmoniously together that they were almost famous for it. They had five sons and one daughter.
On December 16, 1771 Herman bought the farm Bøen from his mother, Guri Aslaksdatter for 386 riksdaler. On September 16, 1796 Herman and Kari received a royal letter to the effect that the survivor could retain undivided possession of the farm.
The years went by and they began to grow older. They had a mountain farm at Bjødalen and Kari loved to work there in the summer. Herman visited faithfully and he always came on Saturday evenings. Kari often went out and watched for him. When she caught sight of him she waved happily.
One evening in the fall Herman came on horseback from Reinli. He relived many memories from his and Kari's younger days and he was thinking that not many people had such a good life together as they had. On the hill above the houses he stopped and waited for Kari to come out to look for him, but Kari did not come and he began to wonder. He stopped outside the door and he could smell a strange burned smell. He tore the door open, and there sat Kari leaning against the fireplace wall with the cheese ladle in her hand. She must have fallen asleep. Herman walked toward her and jokingly pinched her ears. "You are really making cheese, wife." But Kari did not wake up. She had fallen asleep forever in front of the fireplace.

Newspaper clipping, origin unknown, probably Brooten Tribune:

"The following account of the Pofahl-Arenson wedding reprinted from the Mankato Free Press, issue of Tuesday, Nov, 4 will be of interest to Brooten folks:
In the Swedish Lutheran Church, marriage vows were exchanged Sunday afternoon at two o'clock between Miss Francis Pofahl, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gust Pofahl, 328 West Fifth St., and Mr. Walter W. Arenson of Brooten, Minn., who formerly was employed at the Lamm Drug Store at this place. Mr. Menville Imsdahl of Brooten, played the Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin as the Processional and Mendelsohn's Wedding March as the recessional. The bride was gowned in a beautiful orchid color silk charmeuse which was further enhanced in beauty by a bridal veil of embroidered tulle. Her only ornament was a string of pearls. A shower bouquet of sweetheart roses tied with tulle made up the bride's bouquet. Miss Ida Wilder of Chicago, a cousin of the bride, who attended as bride's maid, wore a frock of blue canton crepe and she carried an arm bouquet of pink carnations tied with pink tulle. Mr. James G. Arenson of Brooten, a brother of the groom, acted as best man. Following the ceremony the bridal party and their guests went to the home of the bride where a wedding dinner was served at five o'clock. Covers were laid for one hundred guests. The table was beautifully decorated and a large wedding cake formed the centerpiece. The dining room colors used were lavender and white.

Glenwood Herald, June 12, 1903
"One of the largest and most pleasant wedding parties that has taken place in the town of Blue Mounds in many a day, was the one last Wednesday at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Evenson. Friends and relatives from far and near constituted a wedding procession a mile or more in length which proceeded to the Langhei church at the appointed hour on the above mentioned day to witness the ceremony uniting for life Miss Jennie, the young and handsome daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Evenson, to Hans Oliver Olson, a most worthy and well-to-do young farmer from the neighboring township of Gilchrist. The wedding dinner and supper with which the guests were served was of the best in the land and was enjoyed most thoroughly by one and all. Many and costly were the wedding gifts bestowed upon the bride by the vast army of her admiring friends, whose congratulations and best wishes for a long and happy life were extended with an earnestness seldom witnessed. On the well regulated farm owned by the groom they will make their future home, where the Herald trusts that life's richest blessings may be theirs while the seasons come and go."

PRETTY HOME WEDDING CELEBRATED SATURDAY EVENING AT HOME OF BRIDE’S AUNT
WILL LIVE IN THEIR COUNTRY HOME
Rev. Louis T. Hanson, pastor of Bethel Lutheran church, on Saturday evening read the nuptial service, which made Mr. George C. Weber and Miss Grace Olson man and wife. The simple but impressive ceremony was performed at the home of Miss Olson’s aunt, Mrs. Ester Olson, 18 N. Franklin Street. Only immediate relatives of the contracting parties were present.
Surrounded by a bank of roses, carnations, and ferns, the bride and groom stood as they pronounced the vows. The bride’s gown was of marquisette, trimmed with Baby Irish lace. Following the service, a four-course coalition was partaken of. Mr. and Mrs. Weber went at once to their bungalow, one mile northeast of the city to take up their residence.
The bride of Saturday had made her home with her aunt in Rochester since she was five years old, and received her education in the city schools. For the past two and one half years she has been a valued assistant at the Scott and Everstine store, where her delightful personality won many friends. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. George Weber of South Prospect Street. He is a member of the Weber and Heintz Drug Co. He received a course at Minnesota University, entering the drug firm soon after. Mr. Weber has completed one of the finest county residences in the county.

A Silver Wedding in Rolling Forks
Large Number of Friends Gather at Home of Mr. and Mrs. Hans Olson to Celebrate Anniversary

Last Sunday marked the twenty-fifth anniversary of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Hans Olson of Rolling Forks, and about five hundred neighbors and friends gathered at their home to help them properly celebrate this important event. It was an ideal June day and a festal spirit prevailed throughout.
They began coming early in the afternoon and kept on coming till late at night. They came from all parts of the county and from outside of the county. They were there from Willmar, Waterville, Walker and other places. Among those from a distance who were present can be mentioned Mr. and Mrs. S. Evenson, parents of Mrs. Olson. Also Clarence, Gilman and Henry, bothers of Mrs. Olson and sisters, Mrs. Kennedy and Mrs. Julius Huset, all of Walker, Minn. Mrs. Gilman Evenson and Mr. Julius Huset also were present. From Willmar there were Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Kunz and Mr. and Mrs. Leo Torgerson. Dr. and Mrs. J. W. Harris were present from Morris.
The self-invited guests had brought with them an abundance of good things to eat and all were served to their fullest satisfaction. An informal program of short talks was given in the afternoon at which Rev. G. G. Beito acted as toastmaster. Toasts were responded to by H. Zander, T. L. Hoff, Peter Seegar, Flody Robinson, and E. E. Barsness, the later presenting to Mr. and Mrs. Olson a purse of silver as a slight token of the esteem in which this worthy couple is held by neighbors and friends. Later in the evening a large crowd gathered when talks were made by Rev. Johnshoy and Dr. Christenson of Starbuck. Music was furnished by the Fron orchestra.
Consulting our file of the Herald for June 12, 1903, we find that Mr. and Mrs. Olson were married June 10 of that year at the Langhei church, Rev. Chr. Pederson officiating in the presence of a large number of relatives and friends. A wedding reception was held at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Evenson. Immediately afterwards the young couple moved onto the groom's farm in Rolling Forks, where they have since made their home. They have had success throughout the years and are profinent and highly respected members of the community.
The Herald joins with their many friends in wishing them many more years of happy wedded life.

Friends of Mr. and Mrs. A. G. Fossen Present Them With Valuable Gift.

The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. A. G. Fossen of Starbuck having discovered that they had reached the 25th anniversary of their wedding day on the 14th of this month decided to celebrate the event with them. They preferred to visit them on the 14th but Mr. Fossen was not at home on that day and so it was decided to go and help them celebrate last Sunday.
Their friends therefore to a very large number gathered last Sunday afternoon at the town hall in Starbuck and sent work (sp) to Mr. and Mrs. Fossen that they were wanted. Upon their arrival it was explained to them what the nature of the gathering was. Prof. Jorstad made a speech as did also Representative C. N. Nelson, who was at home from his duties at St. Paul.
Mr. and Mrs. Fossen were presented with a very beautiful four piece silver set. Mr. and Mrs. Fossen were married on March 14, 1894 in Rolling Forks at the home of Mrs. Fossen's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Gregor Arneson. They were married by Rev. [missing]
