  • Notes 


    • In 1902 Marinus bought, from two friends, eighty acres of land in the Cushing community at Wolbach, Nebraska. Marinus made this two hundred mile trip from Gayville with horses and a lumber wagon loaded with furniture and belongings. Susanne and the children went there by train. He later increased his acreage in Nebraska.

      Eighteen years later, in 1920, the family and belongings returned to Gayville. This time they came by train and two freight cars were loaded with furniture and domestic animals. One of the sons, John, slept in one of the cars that contained the horses and other animals. There was a railroad strike, and the train was delayed for one week between Omaha and Sioux City. This heavily increased John's responsibility in caring for the animals. The catastrophe of the trip was the loss of a pet dog during the strike. It was presumably stolen--Edwin tells this with sorrow on his face.

      The family continued farming near Meckling, South Dakota, which was the home of Susanne and Marinus until their passing.

    2. [S282] Nielsen, Hans, (1984), TMG Src#: 325., In relating the story of Morten Pederson's last wedding, Hans makes reference to a story about "old Jens" thinking it was "tomfollerish" for people as old as Morten to marry but Hans thinks Morten "have said something to Jens, when his girlfriend Ane Kjerstine got a child three months before they got married!! Words which Jens not had forgot!!" (Reliability: 1).
