 The life of Jeppe and Thea:

In the "Burke County and White Earth Valley Historical Society 1971" is the following about Jeppe Skow and Thea Knudsen:

 "Jeppe Skow was born in Denmark and came to Iowa. He was married and they were the parents of a son, Ed and a daughter, Inga. His wife died before the children were grown up and he later married Dorothea Knutson from Apenrade, Germany, now Aabenraa, Denmark. Dorothea was a sister of Mrs. John Adamson.

They came to homestead southeast of Bowbells in 1898. Dorothea died young leaving two sons, Chris and Walter. She is burried in the Bethany Lutheran Cementery south of Bowbells.

 After his wife's death, Jeppe worked on the railroad awhile and then went to Mercer, North Dakota, to live with Ed his remaining years.

 Christ worked in the Motor Vehicle Department at Bismarck for several years. He then moved to Seattle where he died in the 60's.

 Walter worked as a hotel clerk for many years. He had lived in Minot for many years with his family. He died in Minot in 1970.

 Ed lives in Florida and Inga lives in Spencer, Iowa."

[Excerpt from history of Theas daughter Dora Knudsen (born 1893)]  Thea had a baby out of wedlock, fathered by the husband of the lady she worked for in Denmark.  When John and Mary left for the US, they took Thea with them. Since she was not married,  Thea was not allowed to take the baby, Dorothea or Dora born 1893, to America. Dora remained a servant in the house of her father. In Iowa, Thea married a widower, Jeppe Skow.  He had one son with him and a daughter, Inga, had been given up when she was a little child. The Adamson and Skows went homesteading in North Dakota. Thea and Jeppe had two children together, Christ and Walter.
 
Years later, her mother's husband, Jeppe Skow, sent for Dora in Aabenraa (Denmark) as her mother was dying. In North Dakota, she had to work very hard for Jeppe and the boys. After Thea's death, sister Mary took Dora to live with them.

Jeppe og Theas liv:
 
I "Burke County and White Earth Valley Historical Society 1971" står følgende om Jeppe Skow og Dorothea Knudsen:
 
"Jeppe Skow blev født i Danmark og kom til Iowa. Han var gift og de var forældre til en søn, Ed og en datter, Inga. Hans kone døde, før børnene blev voksne, og han giftede sig senere med Dorothea Knutson fra Apenrade, Tyskland , nu Aabenraa, Danmark. Dorothea var en søster til fru John Adamson.
 
De kom til deres homestead sydøst for Bowbells i 1898. Dorothea døde ung, og forlod to sønner, Chris og Walter. Hun er begravet på Bethany Lutheran kirkegård syd for Bowbells.

[Uddrag fra Theas datter Dora Knudsens historie (født 1893)] Thea (Dorothea) havde en baby uden for ægteskab, faren var fruens mand, som hun arbejdede for i Danmark. Da Johann og Marie/Mary Adamsen rejste til USA, tog de Thea med dem. Siden hun ikke var gift, fik Thea ikke lov til at tage babyen Dorothea eller Dora født 1893 med til Amerika. Dora forblev i farens hus, hvor hun voksede op og fungerede som tjenestepige. I Iowa blev Thea gift med en enkemand, Jeppe Skow. Han havde en søn med sig, og en datter, Inga, var blevet givet væk mens hun var lille. Adamsen og Skow stiftede begge hjem i North Dakota. Thea og Jeppe havde to børn sammen, Christ og Walter.
 
Flere år senere sendte Theas mand, Jeppe Skow, bud efter Dora i Aabenraa, da hendes mor var ved at dø. I North Dakota måtte Dora arbejde meget hårdt for Jeppe og drengene. Efter Theas død tog Theas søster Mary Dora hjem til sig for at hun kunne bo hos dem.
 
Tak Marlys for info om Thea Knudsens, Jeppe Skows og Theas datter Doras liv.

The town of Bowbells in North Dakota was founded in 1898 along the main line of the Soo Line Railway. Dora and Jeppe Skow as well as Mary and John Adamson came to Bowbells in the spring of 1898, so they were present right from the foundation of the place.

The town was inaugurated in 1906 and the town was named by the railway officials after the famous Bow Bells at St Mary-le-Bow in London, England.

The city had a large number of Scandinavian inhabitants. By the census of 1910, more than 25% of the inhabitants of the area were Danish immigrants and their children. This is probably also the reason why a Danish church could be founded outside the city. 

Byen Bowbells i North Dakota blev grundlagt i 1898 langs hovedlinjen Soo Line Jernbanen. Dora og Jeppe Skow samt Mary og John Adamson kom til Bowbells i foråret 1898, så de var altså med lige fra stedets grundlæggelse.

Byen blev indviet i 1906 og byen blev navngivet af jernbanetjenestemændene efter de berømte Bow Bells (klokker) ved St Mary-le-Bow i London, England.

Byen havde et stort antal skandinaviske indbyggere. Ved folketællingen i 1910 var mere end 25% af indbyggerne i området danske indvandre og deres børn. Det er sikkert også årsagen til, at man kunne grundlægge en dansk kirke uden for byen.

Newspaper articles - Jeppe and Thea (Knudsen) Skow

The Bowbells Tribune, May 12, 1905: “Jeppe Skow recently returned from a trip to Emmetsburg, I.o., and was accompanied home by his 16-years-old daughter, who had been attending school at the place. Mr. Skow says that the spring is much earlier below than here, through continuous rains flooded the ground and greatly retarded the work of seeding. The weather was also quite cold and little or no growth was being made where seed had been sown.”  - Also look under 4b. Inga Skow! - the Anderson family tried to get Inga back to their family in Iowa!

The Bowbells Tribune, November 24, 1905: “Jeppe Skow brought into town yesterday a 36-inch-deep wagon box containing by measurement 72 bushels of oats, with when put on the scales weighed just 103 bushels, for which the load was sold. This surely testifies the claim that the Bowbells country produces the heaviest oats, as well as the largest crops, of any country in the wide, wide world.”

The Bowbells Tribune, October 5, 1906: Would Like Rural Telephone System. Just now the farmers of the country about here realize what a benefit to them would be a rural telephone system, as the communication that would thereby be afforded them would enable them to ascertain whatever or not they could dispose of their grain without first drawing in a heavy load only to find out that the grain house’s were all full and then be compelled to turn about and take the load back with them. Jeppe Skow is one of the wide-awake farmers who sees clearly what a system of this kind would save, and informed The Tribune that he and his neighbors to the east of the city would at any time “go their length” in assisting in the organization of a company and institution of a line.”

The Bowbells Tribune, October 5, 1906: “Jeppe Skow is just now putting the finishing touches on one of the finest farm houses in this part of the country, and he is justly proud of his accomplishment. The new home is 14x28, with an addition 14x16, 14-ft. posts, and a rear addition 10x16, the latter serving as a summer kitchen.”

The Bowbells Tribune, October 12, 1906: “Mrs. Jeppe Skow, who has for some time been in poor health, was so seriously ill the first of the week as to alarm her family and friends, but we understand an improvement has been notichable within the last two days and her condition is now more hopeful.”

The Bowbells Tribune, April 30, 1909: “Fine Farm for Sale, within 4 1/2 miles of Bowbells, all under plow except small pasture, splendid buildings, good well and windmill, and very appointment first-class. I offer this valuable property for quick sale on account of my wife’s failing health. Easy terms and cheap. For particulars see Jeppe Skow, on the premises.”

The Bowbells Tribune, October 15, 1909: “Inga, the young lady daughter of Jeppe Skow, is being treated by Dr. Doe for an attack of typhoid fever, with which she is suffering.”

The Bowbells Tribune, December 17, 1909: “Dr. Doe reports that Mrs. Jeppe Skow, who was seriously ill the first of the week, is now fully recovered.”

The Bowbells Tribune, November 11, 1910: “Jeppe Skow has rented his farm, situated just east of the city, to Peter J. Neve for the coming crop year, and will himself go back to his old business of railroading. Mr. Skow has for a short time had charge to the Soo Line section of Ambrose, during the absence of the resident section foreman, and we are informed that he has already been made several flattering offers to return to his old employment, all of which he is now considering with a view to acceptance of the most desirable.”

The Bowbells Tribune, February  24, 1911: “Mrs. Jeppe Skow is quite seriously ill at her home from an attack of the dropsy.”

The Bowbells Tribune, April 28, 1911: BURIAL OF MRS. JEPPE SKOW - The funeral of Mrs. Jeppe Skow, mention of whose death appeared in The Tribune of last week, took place from the Danish Lutheran Church seven miles southeast of the city, the 20th inst., at 2 o’clock in the afternoon. Deceased was 42 years of age at the time of her death, and had for 15 years been great sufferer from dropsy and heart trouble. The family came here from Iowa some 12 years ago, settling on the homestead four miles east of the city where they have resided continuously and up to the death of the wife and mother ever since. Besides her husband deceased leaves two sons, Christian and Walter, aged, respectively, 16 and 13 years, besides a large number of sincere friends, to mourn her demise. The service at the church were conducted by Rev. Mr. Lund of Kenmare, after which the remains were consigned to their last earthly resting place in the Danish Lutheran cemetery close by. The bereaved family have the sympathy for all in their great sorrow.”

The Bowbells Tribune, April 5, 1912: “Jeppe Skow left Wednesday for Mercer in McLean county where he will spend a couple of weeks visiting his son who is located there. During the past year Mr. Skow has been employed on the section here and expects on his return to enter the employ of the Soo in the same capacity at Kenmare.”

The Bowbells Tribune, April 5, 1912: “Jeppe Skow on Monday of this week sold his farm in Bowbells township to Sam Berg for a consideration of $4,200, and the place will be worked this season by the new owner. The Skow place is one of the best farms in Burke county, being all in a high state of cultivation and with good buildings. Sam, who was married last week, intends to move on to his new property some time during the coming summer and will reside there permanently in the future.”

The Bowbells Tribune, April 19, 1912: “Jeppe Skow returned Wednesday afternoon from Sanborn, in McLean county, where he spent about a week in visiting with a son who is homesteading there. He found the land of a very good quality, but pretty well covered with stones. The snow storm which was received here did not reach as far as Sanborn, through some snow fell there. However, instead, they got several inches of rain.”

The Bowbells Tribune, October 4, 1912: “Jeppe Skow returned on Friday morning last from Crosby, where he spent about six weeks in the employ of the Soo Line as section foreman. He is undecided as to what he will go after next, but for the present will rest up for a week or two.”

The Bowbells Tribune, January 24, 1913: “Christ Skow, a son of Jeppe Skow, who during the past six months or more, has been one of the efficient clerks in the Jens Peterson store, left Friday night for Mercer, N.D., where he will spend several weeks in visiting his brother Ed. and also his father.”

The Bowbells Tribune, November 21, 1913: “Jeppe Skow, for many years a resident of Bowbells township, but who left here last fall for Mercer, N.D. where he has since been staying with his son, returned to this city on Wednesday of this week to spend a time looking after business matters.”

The Bowbells Tribune, November 20, 1914: “Jeppe Skow, who for some years resided on his farm east of this city, who two years ago sold his place to Sam Berg, and have since then been living with his son in McLean county, arrived here Tuesday morning to spend a short time in looking after business matters….

After 1914 Jeppe Skow is not mentioned in the newspapers. By the census in 1920 he was a lodger in Williston, Williams, North Dakota, he was 65 years of age and was working at the railroad. He died in McLeod County, Minnesota on May 10, 1929.

Skow came up from Mercer, McLean county, Wednesday morning, and dropped in on The Tribune to renew acquaintance and tell us that crops prospects are very enqouraging throughout that part of the state and farmers generally are well pleased with the outlook. Ed. has a fine homestead near Mercer, on which he filed some 18 months ago and this is his first visit home since beginning residents on the land immediately following his filing. He expected to visit with the old folks for a week or ten days, when he will return to Mercer.”

The Bowbells Tribune, July 8, 1910: “Ed. Skow, who last week returned to his homestead near Mercer, in McLean county, after a three weeks’ visit at the home of his parents on the farm east of the city, writes back, we are informed by his father, Judge Jeppe Skow, to the effect that crops are looking fine all through his part of the state and that for two or three weeks past they have been enjoying copious rains at very brief intervals.”

 

(4b. Inga Skow) The Bowbells Tribune April 13, 1906: A sensational lawsuit about the 17-year-old Inga Skow/The Bowbells Tribune April 13, 1906: En opsigtsvækkende retsag vedrørende den 17 årige Inga Skow

When Jeppe Skow's first wife died, Jeppe gave his then 5-year-old daughter Inga away to a Anderson family in Palo Alto County, Iowa.

When Inga was 16 years old, Jeppe traveled to Iowa to take his daughter home to his farm in North Dakota.

Nels C. Anderson, who was around 50 years old and a very wealthy farmer, sued Jeppe Skow to get Inga back because he considered her to be a member of his family. Anderson did not believe that Jeppe Skow had the right to take Inga away from her home because Jeppe Skow gave her to the family when she was 5 years old and Anderson further told that Inga endeared herself to his wife, himself and the rest of the family and they after so many years did not desire to give her up. Jeppe Skow, on the other hand, maintained that he was her father and the agreement was that when Inga had been confirmed in the Lutheran Church, she would return to her father.

The thought of losing Inga had been very unpleasant for Anderson, which is why in the fall of 1905 he had traveled to North Dakota with the desire to bring Inga back to Iowa. Jeppe Skow strenuously objected to his proceeding and Anderson’s visit proved futile.

In court, 17-year-old Inga stated that she preferred to live with the Anderson family because she did not like living in this country, but that her father had always treated her kindly and she never wanted for anything. However, she was of the belief that since she had lived with the same family for so many years, she would be happier living with the Anderson family.

Jeppe Skow was very reluctant to part with his child and he informed the court that he desired to retain possession of the child.

After hearing the testimony, Judge Goss dismissed the case and ruled that Inga should stay with her father, Jeppe Skow in Bowbells.

Da Jeppe Skows første hustru døde gav Jeppe sin da 5 årige datter Inga væk til en familien Anderson i Palo Alto County, Iowa.

Da Inga var 16 år gammel hentede Jeppe sin datter i Iowa hjem til sin gård i North Dakota.

Nels C. Anderson, som var omkring de 50 år, gik for at være en meget velhavende gårdmand og lagde sag an mod Jeppe Skow for at få Inga tilbage, da han anså hende for at være et medlem af sin familie. Anderson mente ikke, at Jeppe Skow havde retten til at tage hende væk fra sit hjem, da Jeppe Skow gav hende til familien da hun var 5 år gammel og Anderson fortalte endvidere, at Inga elskede hans kone, ham selv og resten af familien og de efter så mange år ikke ønskede, at miste hende. Jeppe Skow der i mod fastholdt, at han var hendes far og aftalen var, at når Inga var blevet konfirmeret i den lutherske kirke, skulle hun vende tilbage til sin far.

Tanken om at skulle miste Inga havde været meget ubehagelig for Anderson, hvorfor han i efteråret 1905 var rejst til North Dakota med ønsket om, at få Inga med tilbage til Iowa. Jeppe Skow afviste på det skarpeste hans ønske hvorfor Andersons rejse viste sig af være nytteløs.

I retten, udtalte den 17 årige Inga, at hun foretrak at bo hos familien Anderson da du ikke brød sig om at bo i North Dakota, men at hendes far altid havde behandlet hende godt og hun aldrig manglede noget. Dog var hun af den overbevisning, at i det hun havde boet ved samme familie i så mange år, så ville hun være mere lykkelig ved at bo hos familien Anderson.

Jeppe Skow informerede retten om, at han ikke ønskede at skille sig af med sit barn, men ønskede at fastholde sin ret til barnet.

Efter at have hørt vidneudsagnene afviste dommer Goss sagen og fastslog, at Inga skulle blive hos sin far, Jeppe Skow i Bowbells.

4b. Ingeborg (Inga) Skow

4b. Ingeborg (Inga) Skow, was born November 20, 1889 in Palo Alto County, Iowa. Inga died on January 23, 1987, at the aged of 97 in Clay County, Iowa.

(After Inga was grown into adulthood she moved back to her foster parents, who had then moved to Spencer, Iowa. She was still  living with them in 1940 when she was 50 years old. All indicates that she was never married. When one of her foster sisters died, she was also mentioned as a surviving sister. Inga remained in Spencer, Iowa, where she died in 1987 at the age of 97 years.)

4b. Ingeborg (Inga) Skow, blev født 20-11-1889 i Palo Alto County, Iowa. Inga døde den 23-01-1987, 97 år gammel i Clay County, Iowa.

(Efter Inga var blevet voksen, flyttede hun tilbage til sine plejeforældre, der da var flyttet til Spencer, Iowa. Hun boede fortsat hos dem i 1940, da hun var 50 år gammel. Alt tyder på, at hun aldrig blev gift. Da en af hendes plejesøster døde, blev hun da også nævnt, som en overlevende søster. Inga forblev i Spender, Iowa, hvor hun døde i 1987 i den høje alder af 97 år.)


4c. Dora Knudsen, married Pedersen. The photo was taken by photographer Hermann Nedell in Aabenraa, Denmark. (Photo from Gordon Sjue, April 2020)

4c. Dora (Knudsen) Pedersen - photo restored by Everett Ward.

Dora in Aabenraa 1893 to 1909

Dora grows up with her father and stepmother in Aabenraa. Dora's father is not mentioned in the church book. But with the help of Mary Bernardi and Gordon Sjue, I found Dora's father and family. Mary and Gordon are descendants of Dora.

Dora was born out of wedlock in 1893. Her mother was a maid in Dora's father's and his wife's house, so it has probably been for Dora's fathers reputation that his name was not mentioned in the church book. Notwithstanding that Dora's father is not mentioned in the church book, I think it was soon rumored who was the child's father.

It was not well-intentioned to have children out of wedlock and not at all with a married man. Dorothea has probably been aware of that it would be difficult to get a job by another family. Dorothea therefore leaves Aabenraa and travels to America.

Dorothea was not allowed to take her 2-month-old Dora with her and have to leave Dora behind in Aabenraa.

Dora i Aabenraa 1893 til 1909

Dora vokser op hos sin far og stedmor i Aabenraa. Doras far er ikke nævnt i kirkebogen. Men med hjælp fra Mary Bernardi og Gordon Sjue, fandt jeg frem til Doras far og familie. Mary og Gordon er efterkommere af Dora.

Dora bliver født uden for ægteskab i 1893. Hendes mor tjente hos Doras far og hans kone, så det har sikkert været af hensyn til Doras fars omdømme, at hans navn ikke bliver nævnt i kirkebogen. Uanset, at Doras far ikke er nævnt i kirkebogen, så det nok hurtigt rygtes hvem der var barnets far.

Det var ikke velanset, at man fik børn uden for ægteskabet og da slet ikke med en gift mand. Dorothea har sikkert været klar over, at det ville blive svært at få et arbejde hos en anden familie. Dorothea forlader derfor Aabenraa og rejser til Amerika, hvor hun kan begynde på en frisk.

Dorothea får ikke lov til at tage den 2 måneder gamle Dora med og må efterlade Dora i Aabenraa.

Old photo of Dora's home in Aabenraa. The houses for the workers were close to the harbor.

Dora grew up in her father's home. The father, whose name was Diedrich Jensen Petersen and was a sailor, lived with his wife Betty Marie Vonsyld in one of the houses in Raadhusgade reserved for people working at the harbor.

Diedrich and Betty were married on November 5, 1889, but they had not yet succeeded in having a child at the time when  Dora was born in February 1893. Betty had been with child twice, but at both births the children had been stillborn.

However, Dora did not become the only child in the small house in Raadhusgade in Aabenraa. Already in June 1893, Dora's half-sister Clara Louise was born, in 1894 *Peter Joachim, in 1896 Johannes Iwer, in 1899 Anna Cathrina, in 1900 Ida Eleonora, in 1903 Lorenz Heinrich, in 1910 Theodor and as the last, Klara Marie in 1915.

So the last 2 of Dora's siblings were born after Dora left Aabenraa to be with her sick mother in Bowbells, North Dakota in 1909. Dora sailed with the ship “Lake Manitoba” and arrived in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 02-08-1909, from where she traveled to Bowbells.

Its seems that Dora, to some extent, has had contact with some of her siblings in Denmark. One of her siblings, Anna Cathrine, also emigrated to America where she married a Hans Olsen.

* (Peter Joachim Petersen was married with Wally Tide in March 1918. Peter was a sailor just like his father and he was summoned as a German soldier in the First World War. Peter Joachim Petersen was a torpedo sailor. Peter Joachim had no children.)

Dora voksede op i sin fars hjem. Faderen, der hed  Diedrich Jensen Petersen og var sømand, boede sammen med sin hustru Betty Marie Vonsyld i en af de boliger i Rådhusgade, som var forbeholdt folk med tilknytning til havnen.

Diedrich og Betty blev gift den 05-11-1889, men det var endnu ikke lykkedes dem at få et barn i hjemmet, da Dora blev født i februar 1893. Betty havde været med barn 2 gange, men ved begge fødsler havde børnene været dødfødte.

Dora blev dog ikke det eneste barn i det lille hus i Rådhusgade i Aabenraa. Allerede i juni 1893 fødtes Doras halvsøster Clara Louise, i 1894 *Peter Joachim, i 1896 Johannes Iwer, i 1899 Anna Cathrina, i 1900 Ida Eleonora, i 1903 Lorenz Heinrich, i 1910 Theodor og som den sidste blev Klara Marie født i 1915.

Så de 2 sidste af Doras søskende blev altså født efter Dora rejste over til sin syge mor i Bowbells, North Dakota i 1909. Dora sejlede med skibet “Lake Manitoba” og ankom den 02-08-1909 til Montreal, Quebec, Canada hvorfra hun rejste videre til Bowbells..

Det tyder på, at Dora, i et eller andet omfang, har haft kontakt med nogle af sine søskende i Danmark. Én af hendes søskende, Anna Cathrine udvandre også til Amerika hvor hun blev gift med en Hans Olsen. 

*(Peter Joachim Petersen blev gift i marts 1918 med Wally Tide. Peter var sømand lige som sin far og han var indkaldt som tysk soldat i den 1. Verdenskrig. Peter Joachim Petersen var torpedomatros. Han døde den 03-10-1918 efter gasforgiftning. Peter Joachim fik ingen børn.)

Newspaper articles - Peder Duhn Pedersen and Dora (Knudsen) Pedersen

The Bowbells Tribune, July 15, 1910: NO TIDINGS YET OF NELS HANSEN - Young Man Whose Mysterious Disappearance From the Vicinity of Gull Lake, Sask., Was Mentioned Recently in The Tribune, Is Still Missing. The trunk belonging to the young man, Nels Hanson, who went from here some time ago with the avowed purpose of visiting a relative resident near Gull Lake Sask., still remains unclaimed in the depot of Gull Lake, and no trace of young Hanson has been found, other than he left Gull Lake to walk into the country several miles to the farm of the relativ he was going to visit, and it is known that when he left the town for the farm he was accompanied by a stranger, who has never since been seen in Gull Lake, according to the report from that place. Peter Duhn Peterson of this city is now interesting himself in the search for the whereabouts of young Hanson, whether dead or alive, and has taken the matter up with the Canadian mounted police, who will be very likely to get at the bottom of the mystery now surrounding Hanson’s disappearance within a short time. Mr. Peterson last week met a man at Kenmare, who is now employed in that city, who recently came from Gull Lake and who reports seeing the young man about four miles out from that place while on the way to the home of the relative whom he was going to visit. This party says that Hanson was alone when seen by him and appeared to be more or less under the influence of liquor. This was the last seeing of him by anyone in that vicinity, and the fact that he had quite a snug roll of money in his possession, coupled with the further fact that the young man was not overly bright, leads to the belief that he has been foully dealt with and that when facts are gotten down to it will be found to have been a case of murder and robbery. When the trunk now lying unclaimed at the Gull Lake depot shall have been opened and it’s contents examined by the Canadian authorities, sometimes may be found that may throw light on the mystery now surrounding Hanson’s disappearance. The missing young man was known by many in this vicinity, he having worked for a long time on the Soo section here under Foreman Magnus Olson, and when he threw up his work at the section and left here it was for the purpose of going direct to the home of his relative near Gull Lake, for which place he left here some three weeks ago.”

The Bowbells Tribune, November 18, 1910: “Peter Duhn Peterson informs The Tribune that Nels Hanson, the young whom it was feared had meet with foul play somewhere in the vicinity of Gull Lake, Sask., last summer, is alive and well and is working on the Canadian Pacific railroad at Moosejaw. Peter got this information from Hanson’s relatives in the old county, who are in communication with the young man, they giving the information as to his whereabouts in reply to a letter from Mr. Peterson asking if they had recently heard from him or knew anything of his whereabouts. His refusal to let friends here know of his whereabouts is attributed by Mr. Peterson to the fact that the man is a little queer and thought little of the friends who had been near to him before taking his departure from Bowbells for the Canadian northwest.”

The Bowbells Tribune, February 21, 1913: “Peter Duhn Peterson and Miss Dorothy Knutsen, two of the most prominent young people of near this city were married on Friday by Rev. Engel Hjortsvang. Both bride and groom are well known to all our people, having resided here for many years past. They have going to housekeeping on the farm of the groom, where a very neat home had been prepared for the reception of the bride, and where the best wishes of their many friends go with them.”

The Bowbells Tribune, December 19, 1913: “The Tribune has just been advised that a bunching baby boy arrived just three weeks ago at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Duhn Peterson some distance west of the city. This good couple up to a year ago resided at the outskirts of the city were it was an easy matter for this paper to keep track of them, but since they moved father out it has been more difficult, and we came very near missing the announcement of the birth of their first born baby.” - (Leonard Duhn Pedersen) 

The Bowbells Tribune, July 31, 1914: “Real estate transfer: July 16 - Margaret Stinson to Peder Duhn Pedersen, $3,500”

The Bowbells Tribune, June 29, 1917: “Strayed from my place on Sunday, June 24, one red yearling heifer, and one spotted steer calf wearing muzzle. If seen or taken up please notify Peter Duhn Peterson, Route 3, Bowbells, N.D.”

The Bowbells Tribune, August 10, 1917: “Several fresh milch cow’s for sale, Just the right thing for a family in town. Peter Duhn Peterson, Bowbells, N.D.”

The Bowbells Tribune, January 11, 1918: “The Tribune failed to mention in this last issue births to Mr. and Mrs. Peter Duhn Peterson a boy on Dec. 24…” - (Raymond Henry Pedersen)

The Bowbells Tribune, December 20, 1918: “Michael Duhn arrived here last week from his home at Greatenger, Iowa, in response to a message received there stating that Peter Duhn Peterson of west of Bowbells was seriously ill. On his arrival here Michael was considerably surprised to find that Peter was out in the field hauling straw and looking better than he had looked for a long time. Peter explained that he hadn’t been sick for many years, and could not imagine who had sent the massage to the old home. Other relatives in Iowa would also come in response to this message had it not been to the fact that they themselves were confined to their beds with the influenza. On investigation here Peter found that the message was not sent from Bowbells, and would like to know very much where it was sent from, and by whom. Mike was glad to find Pete was not sick, and as long as he is here he supposes he might as well stay here during the balance of the winter, as Burke county is as much to his liking as any place that he knows of.”

The Bowbells Tribune, January 2, 1920: “Pete Duhn Petersen got a load of feed ground at Hansen brothers and also traded turkeys Tuesday afternoon.”

The Bowbells Tribune, April 2, 1920: “Peder Duhn Peterson has moved to the Peder Christensen place. He is planning on working it this spring.”

The Bowbells Tribune, April 9, 1920: “Mr. and Mrs. Peter Duhn Peterson of west of town are rejoicing over the birth of a bright baby girl born to them on Thursday of last week.” - (Dorothy Jensena Pedersen)

The Bowbells Tribune, May 21, 1920: “Mr. and Mrs. Peder Duhn Petersen visited at the Thomas Petersen’s home Sunday afternoon.”

The Bowbells Tribune, July 23, 1920: “Mr. Peter Duhn Peterson’s sister arrived here Wednesday from Denmark to spend a few months visiting.”

The Bowbells Tribune, October 29, 1920: “Pete Duhn Petersen had the misfortune to have twenty-two turkeys stolen last week by a coyote.”

The Bowbells Tribune, November 11, 1921: “Raymond Petersen, son of Peter Duhn Peterson, had his tonsils and adenoids removed in Bowbells Friday.”

The Bowbells Tribune, December 9, 1921: “Mrs. Peter Duhn Peterson of west of town underwent an operation for appendicitis at the Bowbells hospital on Saturday of last week. Reports from her bedside indicate that she is getting along nicely.”
