Biography/HistoryKatie Barth married Henry Dralle in Mott, N.D. in 1905. The Dralles settled on the Stutsman County homestead. The family moved to Bismarck after hearing word that a mission church might start in the area. In addition to itinerant mission work, Dralle also worked as a bank cashier in Mott, an agricultural laborer, and laborer for the Soo Line Railroad. Dralle served as German Lutheran Pastor at the St. John Congregation south of Mandan from 1911-1916 and again from 1927. The Dralles had three children: Ernest, Elsie, and Herbert. The Dralles moved to Sacramento, Calif. after 1945. Henry died in 1946 and Katie in 1948.
