    Notes 
    • transcript of a letter written by Martha Anderson to David Johnson in S
      eptember 1988

      Dear Dave

      You gave me a pleasant surprise. I was so pleased to get your let
      ter. So I will try and let you in on my very young days with Gpa and G
      ma Roberg. Gma and I were good friends and when Gpa went to South Dako
      ta (he had bought land) and he would be gone for two weeks at the time I w
      ould stay with her--it was lonesome for me. Gma would get up early, mi
      lk her cows, take care of the chickens, etc.. The hired man would care f
      or the hogs and do the field work. Gma went to bed early, so did I. I w
      ould walk about a mile to get the mail, help Gma pick eggs. I would ca
      y only one gallon of water to the house at a time to fillt he water c
      ock. More to fill the reservoir for dishes and baths, for scrubbing f
      loors, etc.. Gma was very particular and clean.
      Gpa was more distant, he wasn't as close to us kids or maybe that w
      as our idea. When it was chilly weather Gma had a little heating stove i
      her bedroom upstairs to build a fire. Oh! I can remember how cozy i
      t was. Then before we went to bed she would read the Bible. Then we w
      ould both say our Norwegian Lords prayer (I can still say it).
      I can remember that was when Gpa was in South Dakota and Herman My
      er the hired man, Gma and I were sitting at the dinner table. Gma told m
      e to say the table prayer and to be silly I started out saying the Lord
      s prayer. Gma said no no. Herman started to laugh but he quit in a hu
      y when he saw Gma's expression and when we were doing the dishes she s
      aid--I don't want you to ever do that again. It seems like we listened t
      o our parents, grandparents in those days.
      Aunt Sophie and I got along so wonderful. She would come in the f
      all of the year and stay a month. I could drive the car then. We'd go v
      isit her old neighbors and dear friends she called them. Your Gpa and G
      ma Johnson would always take us along to Winner then to Sioux Falls to s
      ee Auntie. That's why I love your Gma Mmildred and Herman for being so g
      ood to me. I dont know to this day what I would of done if they hadn't b
      een with me when Roy was so ill with cancer. When he passed away they w
      ere right with me.
      Yes, Sena took the wrong road in her life and Esther and Clara had t
      o 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 g
      irls didn't suffer, they had a good Christian home. People by the name o
      f Bruland raised them. Esther still lives in Omaha. Clara passed away m
      any years ago.
      Dave you may have to change my letter quite a bit. You suit yours
      elf. I'm not much of a letter write. Would you mind, when you find ou
      t when Gpa and Gma Johnson celebrate their 50th to let me know. I woul
      d appreciate that. What did you name your little girl? What is your w
      ife's name?

      Best to you and your family
      from Martha
