In 1902 she and several sisters came to North Dakota and in 1905 she homesteaded in Rock Island Township, Williams County, near Alamo. She proved up her claim in 1907 and married Adolph Nelson. He was born in Sweden in 1882. They lived on her homestead and raised three children. They retired from farming in 1944 and moved to Williston, N.D. where Marie died in 1956. |
