On 6 March 1955 Mary Pederson Celebrates 96th Birthday. Sunday, March 6, 1955, was the 96th birthday anniversary of Mrs. Mary Pederson Larsen, which was observed with open house at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Hannah Paulson in Geddes, South Dakota. Relatives were entertained Saturday March 5, to accommodate the many well wishers. Miss Margaret Ostberg baked and decorated the beautiful birthday cake. Mary Pedersen was born in Knupstrup, Kaarup Sogn, Denmark, March 6, 1859. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jens Peder Pedersen lived to be 93 and 96, respectively. Her twin sister and three brothers also lived to see their nineties. She married Lars C. Larsen, October 22, 1883 in the Lutheran church of Kaarup Denmark. Eight children were born to this union, Mrs. Hannah Paulson of Geddes, South Dakota; Mrs. Lee Orr of Fresno, California; and four sons, Chris Larsen of Alcester, South Dakota; Bryan and Raymond Larsen of Harrison, Nebraska; and Carl Larsen of Colville, Washington; Two sons Jens and John, died some years ago. Besides her six children, Mrs. Larsen has eleven grand children; twenty-four great grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren. In 1890, her husband immigrated to Blair, Nebraska, and a year later Mrs. Larsen and their three small sons followed. They sailed on a German ship and were at sea three weeks. In 1900 they homesteaded in Douglas county, near Armour, South Dakota and later moved to a ranch forty miles south of Harrison, Nebraska. Her husband died in the fall of 1941 and Mrs. Larsen moved to Harrison, Nebraska to make her home. In the fall of 1954 she came to Geddes to make her home with her daughter. Mrs. Larsen is alert, has a good sense of humor, and is in good health. When asked to what she accredited her long life, she replied, "I have always had good health, for which I am thankful to God. I have worked hard, but that has not hurt me." Inquiring about how many grand children she has, she wittingly replied, "I don't know, everybody calls me Grandma Larsen." She has knitted twenty-five pairs of mittens during the winter and crocheted thirty-one rugs and many fancy work items. She gave six pairs of mittens to a needy family. She says she can easily knit a pair a day. In reminiscing, Mrs. Larsen said, "I did house work for a family with three small children in Denmark, and helped milk ten cows three times a day, for which I was paid two and one-half crowns a week or fifteen cents a day we worked from sun rise until sun set."

Emmanuel Lutheran Cemetery is one of four adjacent cemeteries located along the north side of Union County's 298th Street, located one mile south of highway 46 and about a mile and a half east of Beresford's Third Street. Of these four, Emmanuel Lutheran Cemetery is the cemetery located second farthest from the east. The other three adjacent cemeteries are (from west to east) St. John Cemetery, Beresford Cemetery, and Beresford Memorial Park. Of the four cemeteries, St. John Cemetery is the only one marked by signs which are visible from the road, which can be a source of confusion to visitors who do not live in the area. The lack of marked boundaries between the four cemeteries make them appear as one large cemetery; and, the four cemeteries are known collectively and less formally as "the City Cemetery."2 He was buried after 5 April 1946 at Emmanuel Lutheran Cemetery aka Beresford Cemetery, Beresford, Union, South Dakota.2

Ovidia Nordgaard died on 15 November 1943 at from cancer of the bladder at age 71.3,4 She was buried after 15 November 1943 at Emmanuel Lutheran Cemetery aka Beresford Cemetery, Beresford, Union, South Dakota.
     Ovidia Nordgaard was also known as Anna Ovidia. Ovidia Nordgaard was also known as Ottesen. From LuIda Abrahamson (3/2015): Grandma was passed from one family to another for her earlier years, since her father died before she was born and her mother died at her birth. When a very young age she was kidnapped by gypsies, and served as a slave girl. After a number of years, she was rescued by the Salvation Army. My great grandpa (my mom's grandpa) needed someone to help his wife with their family.
This is how grandma Ovidia came to America. She had no means other than being an indentured servant and to work off the cost of her trip here. While working for Great grandma in the late 1800's, she and my grandpa (her sponsor's son) fell in love. This was a disgrace to his family, as they had sent him to "college" at Vermillion. His family never truly accepted her. It was a disgrace to think their first-born married an indentured servant with no known relatives except a brother named Albert. Ovidia Nordgaard was also known as Norgaard. She was confirmed on 7 August 1887 at Bjørnør parish, Stokksund local parish, Norway, in Sokksund now, living on the Nordgaard Farm.5

Ole Jonsen Lykken died on 17 October 1929 at Union, South Dakota, at age 86 Ole's health began to fail almost a year before his death. In June 1929, he became bedridden and his health continued to deteriorate during his last six weeks. Early in the morning of his death, he was feeling better than he had in two or three days. A friend visited with him. His family commented that he looked better after the visit; but, he was dead only ten minutes later. He was buried after 17 October 1929 at Roseni Cemetery, Beresford, Union, South Dakota, Gr 6, Lot 42, Blk 1.
     Ole Jonsen Lykken was also known as Jonsen. Ole came to America at the age of twenty-eight and first settled in Sioux City, Iowa in 1871. The following year, he homesteaded on the farm which was later operated by his son, Isaac Lykken. After proving up, Ole worked on the Missouri river for a year before returning to farm on his homestead. He retired a number of years before his death. Ole Jonsen Lykken was also known as Ole Johnsen Kongsvik. In South Dakota there were many people from Byneset that owned farms, among them Ole Johnsen Løkken. He traveled among several people from Byneset with wagons pulled by bulls in 1871 to take themselves land. This could happen by selecting an area and live there a specific period. Then they got necessary property contracts, or by paying a specific amount to get the right to own the property. But it was one condition, and that was that the people that would take the land could declare that it had necessary sources of water on the property. Usually the money was used to get the necessary equipment to start running the farm. Most of them had to work up their right to own the property; also Ole Johnsen Løkken did this. He had arrived to build up a new home together with his wife. A "crawl-in" was built in shelter from a hill, and a place to sleep was made of timber. The equipment was thrifty. The trunk with the food supplies was opened and the lid was used as a dining table. But water was not yet discovered in such amount that this was enough for a farm. But a heavy shower arrived one night and the water came in to the poor house and a great pond of water was made on the floor in front of the bed. Løkken said that this had to be enough to declare that the farm had enough water (to be registered as a farm). The district had no trees and there was not a bird to see. They used dried manure as fuel. It gave little warmness and it was often necessary to eat with the mufflers on when it was cold weather. One winter day two neighbors went with wagons pulled by bulls to try to find wood by the Missouri river where there were forests. When they had traveled far they discovered a black spot in the horizon. They thought that a blizzard was coming and they turned around, trying to reach a house to get shelter. The bulls did seem to understand what was coming and no one had seen the bulls running like they did this time. They managed to reach a house just before the blizzard came over them. When the weather become better they did go home to their own farms and to their worried families. (Page 357 in the local history book). Ole Jonsen Lykken was also known as Løkken. He witnessed the baptism of Ole Olsen Wevik on 13 August 1864 at Byneset Parish, Byneset, Sor Trondelag, Norway.3 Ole Jonsen Lykken appeared on the census of 1865 in the household of Jon Olsen Lykken at Lykken farmy, Byneset, Norway; living next door to his brother Ole Olsen.4 Ole Jonsen Lykken witnessed the baptism of Lars Olsen Lykken on 12 April 1868 at Byneset Parish, Sor Trondelag, Norway.3 Ole Jonsen Lykken immigrated in March 1871 to Norway to US He was released from the Army to come to America. It cost 59 Kroner and 60 Ore to get to Sioux City, IA. He witnessed the baptism of Ingeborg Olsdatter on 20 August 1871 at Byneset Parish, Sor Trondelag, Norway; also reported as 13 Aug 1871.3 Ole Jonsen Lykken was naturalized on 14 March 1878 at Court of Yakton County, Yankton, Dakota Territory, In the 1920 Census Ole J Lykken immigrated in 1871 and was naturalized in 1878.
