    • transcript of a letter written by Martha Anderson to David Johnson in September 1988

      Dear Dave

      You gave me a pleasant surprise. I was so pleased to get your letter. So I will try and let you in on my very young days with Gpa and Gma Roberg. Gma and I were good friends and when Gpa went to South Dakota (he had bought land) and he would be gone for two weeks at the time I would stay with her--it was lonesome for me. Gma would get up early, milk her cows, take care of the chickens, etc.. The hired man would care for the hogs and do the field work. Gma went to bed early, so did I. I would walk about a mile to get the mail, help Gma pick eggs. I would carry only one gallon of water to the house at a time to fillt he water crock. More to fill the reservoir for dishes and baths, for scrubbing floors, etc.. Gma was very particular and clean.
      Gpa was more distant, he wasn't as close to us kids or maybe that was our idea. When it was chilly weather Gma had a little heating stove in her bedroom upstairs to build a fire. Oh! I can remember how cozy it was. Then before we went to bed she would read the Bible. Then we would both say our Norwegian Lords prayer (I can still say it).
      I can remember that was when Gpa was in South Dakota and Herman Myer the hired man, Gma and I were sitting at the dinner table. Gma told me to say the table prayer and to be silly I started out saying the Lords prayer. Gma said no no. Herman started to laugh but he quit in a hurry when he saw Gma's expression and when we were doing the dishes she said--I don't want you to ever do that again. It seems like we listened to our parents, grandparents in those days.
      Aunt Sophie and I got along so wonderful. She would come in the fall of the year and stay a month. I could drive the car then. We'd go visit her old neighbors and dear friends she called them. Your Gpa and Gma Johnson would always take us along to Winner then to Sioux Falls to see Auntie. That's why I love your Gma Mmildred and Herman for being so good to me. I dont know to this day what I would of done if they hadn't been with me when Roy was so ill with cancer. When he passed away they were right with me.
      Yes, Sena took the wrong road in her life and Esther and Clara had to be taken from her. She had one man after the other--finally she left, was gone and nobody heard from her again. Such a sad life. But the girls didn't suffer, they had a good Christian home. People by the name of Bruland raised them. Esther still lives in Omaha. Clara passed away many years ago.
      Dave you may have to change my letter quite a bit. You suit yourself. I'm not much of a letter write. Would you mind, when you find out when Gpa and Gma Johnson celebrate their 50th to let me know. I would appreciate that. What did you name your little girl? What is your wife's name?

      Best to you and your family
      from Martha
