In May 1993 Chris Larson, well-known farmer and cattle feeder of the Alcester area for many years will be 99 years old on May 28. In those ninety-nine years Chris endured some unbelievable experiences, close calls and terrible hardships which he survived only with his one-in-a-million blend of perseverance, determination and endurance. In the settlement of South Dakota and the development of farming practices into the modern, mechanized system of the present time several stages of development have occurred. Usually we think of this as the work of people of two or three generations. Seldom do we find in the lifetime of one person the experience of homesteading on the prairie, breaking the sod and living through thee experiences of depression, drought and dust storms, two world wars and then continuing on and participating in the age of modern farming, and this in the lifetime of a person who is still living and remembering this history. In his 99 years, Chris has lived and experienced the whole range of the settlement and development of South Dakota farming. He remembers prairie fires, devastating droughts, grasshoppers that ate everything in sight and lots of hard times.
A few years ago Chris Larson sat down with a tape recorder and with a keen sense of memory described many of the events of his life, some stories almost unbelievable but as Chris says time after time on his tapes, "Now you people of today might not believe this, but it's absolutely true." And all who know Chris know that if he says so you can believe it. This is the storey of Chris's life where he lived it, in Charles Mix county, South Dakota, in the Nebraska panhandle around Harrison and the last half of his life in Union county around Alcester.
Chris's parents, Lars and Mary Larsen were born, grew up and married at Viborg, Denmark, where his father, Lars, served in the Danish Army. Three sons were born to them in Denmark. Lars came to America alone in 1888 and three years later his wife and three sons came to America to join him at Blair, Nebraska, where he had farm work. One son died while they were at Blair and three other children were born there, Chris and a brother and sister. In 1897 they family loaded up in a covered wagon and moved to Charles Mix county, South Dakota, and settled on a farm one mile east and one mile north of the old Mansbridge store in Moore township. Three years later they moved to a different farm about a mile east. While there a tornado took every building except the house, so they moved again, this time to a farm four west and two south of Lake Andes, a farm with a lot of extremely hilly ground. His father had Chris and his brother and sister go down to tat farm the summer before they moved there and put up hay for the winter. Chris was only about eight, his brother 12 and his sister 10. With a team and buckrake and pitchforks the three children stayed here and stacked hay for two or three weeks. Chris learned to work hard at an early age. Later that fall the family moved down to the hilly farm west of Lake Andes. Chris remembers it as a place that required a lot of hard work. He remembers his mother shearing eighty sheep with a hand clipper. There were acres of hill pasture which had to be fenced which required many days of cutting posts by the Missouri river and putting in the fences. Then a prairie fire might come along and burn a lot of the posts and it was back to more post cutting and fencing. At this time Christ was not quite old enough to split rock and put in fence posts. It was his job to ride the rented pasture land which is now the town of Lake Andes. When the town of Lake Andes was built Chris's father helped haul the lumber for the town and also for the building of Geddes. One day Chris neglected his pasture duties for a bit and picked up 17 eggs somewhere which he sold for twenty cents at a saloon and bought some cigarette paper and piece of candy, (a rare luxury). One time when Chris was 12 his brother Bryan was ten, the boys were sent with four horses to a farm near Geddes to stay by themselves and plow with a walking plow. They had to stand on a box to reach high enough to harness the team. After a time they became so lonesome that they turned the horses loose, knowing they would go home and thus they got to spend one night at home, eight miles away.
After a few years on the farm by Lake Andes his father decided to take up a homestead in the panhandle of Nebraska. Horses, cows, machinery and household furnishing were loaded on one of the so called emigrant trains, destination Harrison, Nebraska. At Harrison they unloaded and by team and wagon made their way 22 miles south till they came to knoll on the prairie where Chris said his father stated, "this is where we'll have our farm." The wagon was emptied and over a small trench which they had dug in the ground, the empty wagon box was turned over. This was the shelter for the family until a small house was erected. They had left eight or ten horses back at Lake Andes so Chris's father had to return to bring them out for use on their Nebraska farm, just six miles from the Wyoming line. A small house and barn were built and they began breaking sod and planting crops. The following year, 1909, Chris started school, mostly all older kids and such a rough bunch that the teacher stood it for only about two months and then quit.
Chris's years as a young lad around Harrison were filled with some rugged experiences. One winter a very severe snowstorm killed hundreds of cattle, mostly those of the large ranchers in the area along the Niobrara river. The cattle drifted with the storm into the river and were covered with snow and suffocated. The only thing salvageable was the hide. He remembers hayracks, loaded with hides, pulled by four horses, coming into Harrison where the hides were shipped out by rail. Chris worked that winter for a rancher named Jack Berett and was in charge of feeding 200 head of cattle. After the storm he rode for hours trying to locate them. When he was ready to give up he noticed steam coming from a huge snowbank. He got help to scoop them out and not a one died. There on the ranch at Harrison he learned to handle and break horses. He spent most of his free time breaking wild horses to ride for use on buggies or machinery. He had a riding horse which he could ride into Harrison across country jumping over any fences they encountered not having to open the fifteen to twenty gates along the way. The next year Chris's sister and brother-in-law, who were farming east of Geddes in South Dakota decided that they wanted to homestead in Nebraska too. Chris's father decided that it would be a good idea if he rented their farm at Geddes and had Chris go back to South Dakota to farm it. So with spring approaching they took a couple of teams of horses, two wagons and few other pieces of farm equipment and loaded them on the train at Harrison for the trip back east. One passenger was allowed to ride along with the freight, so rather than buy a ticket, Chris hid under the wagon box. He had been seen earlier there with his father so the railroad men became suspicious. They found him and was put off the train. He had to buy a ticket on a passenger train and caught up with his father at Norfolk. There they took the railroad spur north to the town of Niobrara, Nebraska, where they would cross the Missouri into South Dakota. They unloaded from the train, hooked up their teams and prepared to drive across the Missouri on the ice. Warm weather had caused the ice to honeycomb. They were told to walk beside their wagons as far as the harness lines would reach, then if the wagons broke through they would have a chance to save themselves. They made it across safely to Running Water on the South Dakota side. The next day, heading for the farm at Geddes and caught in a snowstorm, spring seemed a long ways away. The storm became severe and they stopped at a farm near Tyndal where they were invited in for the night with the family who, Chris said, "were a Bohemian family, wonderful people." The next morning when the storm lad eased up and they were leaving, Chris's father asked what they owned for the several meals and feed for the horses. He remembers that the amount asked was only about four or five dollars but his father had only a larger bill and the farmer had no change for it. "You'll be going through Wagner, just leave the money at the bank there" said the farmer host. Chris was impressed at the trust that man had in them, two complete strangers. They completed the trip the next day to the farm east of Geddes and Chris got his few essential pieces of household furniture and supplies put away and then a few days later it was time for his father to head back to Harrison. With a team and buggy Chris took his father to Bonesteel, crossing the Missouri again, to make the trip back on the stagecoach which was still a major means of transportation in that area where railroads were not yet available to all towns. As soon as the snow melted and the ground dried up a bit Chris started the spring plowing with the old walking plow that they had brought back from Nebraska. An old neighbor, named Larsen, (a Dane but not a relative) and his wife came along in their top buggy, headed for Geddes. The kindly old neighbor walked over to where Chris was plowing with the dilapidated walking plow and said, "You'll never raise a crop in ground plowed like that, nothing but lumps that look like a hog has been rooting here. You've got to have a better plow than that." Chris said he had no money to get a better plow. "Don't worry about that," his neighbor said, "I'm going to Geddes now, I'll get you a new plow and pay for it." Thanks to that kind and generous neighbor, that afternoon someone from Rice Brothers Implement in Geddes brought out to Chris a new plow that did a good job of plowing and it was a plow with a seat on it! This was real progress, a riding plow. Later Chris's father paid for the plow.

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."

He attended Nora Country School and later, Pleasant Hill Country School. He attended high school in Elk Point and graduated from Elk Point High School. He enlisted in the U.S. Air Force on Jan. 30, 1943. He served our country during World War II as an instructor pilot for B-24s and B-32s at Tarrant Field in Fort Worth, Texas.

    While stationed in Texas, he was united in marriage to LaVonne Hornstein on May 6, 1944. He was honorably discharged on Dec. 20, 1946. Following his discharge, they returned to Union County, S.D., and farmed near Spink.

    On May 2, 1951, Leverne was called back to service. He was an aircraft commander for B-29s stationed in San Antonio, Texas. He and his crew of 10 men were assigned to Yakota Air Force base in Tokyo, Japan. He and his bombing crew flew 35 missions over Korea, seven of which were as a lead bomber. Together, he and his crew flew more than 300 combat hours in Korea. On Feb. 1, 1953, he was honorably discharged as a captain. For his service to our country, he was awarded the World War II Victory Medal, Korean Service Medal, United Nations Service Medal and the Air Medal with one Cluster.

    After returning from the Korean Conflict, he and LaVonne farmed near Union Creek, S.D., for 12 years. Later, they moved to the family farm of his parents near Spink, S.D. He and LaVonne farmed there for more than 33 years. In 1999, they moved to their home in Akron.

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

     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 confirmed on 7 August 1887 at Bjørnør parish, Stokksund local parish, Norway, in Sokksund now, living on the Nordgaard Farm. Dad listed as deceased.11

     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. 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 immigrated in March 1871 to Trondhjem, 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 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.
