In 1903 this family came to the United States from Denmark. They settled first near Stuart, Iowa, where the children attended school. Later, part of the family moved further west where they homesteaded on a farm near Harlem, Montana. During their time in Montana, the very musical family played for many square dances. Within a few years they returned to Iowa.
