Mildred walked 1 1/4 miles to the Albert Jensen Country School where she took her first eight years of schooling. Because she was needed at home, Mildred stayed and helped her parents. Then on Nov. 30, 1911, Thanksgiving Day, married a neighbor boy, Francis Larson, going to live on his farm three quarters mile south, the Jeppe Larson homestead.
They lived here through a few drought years. As 1928 was no big year. So they moved to a farm south of Lake Preston. Then in 1943 they turned that farm over to son, Clifford Larson and moved into Lake Preston where they bought the home owned by Phil Murphy, near the railroad trakcs.
