10th in a series
In the fall of ’56 I started for Ohio, took a boat at Red Wing for Rock Island, where I took the cars for Chicago. I arrived at Hudson election day and it was snowing to beat the band. I met father there and went home with him. He hadn’t gotten any of his corn husked so I helped him through with the corn, then went to school that winter. The next spring I hired to Mr. Hial Danforth for the summer for twelve dollars a month and after finishing my summer work, he wanted me to stay all winter and do chores for my board and go to school. So I did. W.L. Marion taught at the school the winter of ’56 and ’57.
