Martin Edwardsen

Seven Persons - Once Hundred Sixty Acres and a Dream
As the Story was Told

Martin Edwardsen had his homestead two miles west of his brother's. He was a bachelor for the near thirty years he farmed. Then he, too, moved to White Rock, British Columbia. When he was in his seventy-fifth year he visited Norway, his homeland. While there he met a former lady acquaintance who came out to Canada after he had returned. When the romance didn't immediately become a marriage, Alma Edwardsen, who was a very righteous person said,' "You make arrangements for a marriage and I'll make coffee and doughnuts for a wedding party." When I met the new Mrs. Martin Edwardsen, some months later, she was unhappy in this land, so far from her children. Then I heard that Martin and she had gone back to Norway. Martin passed away there in his eightieth year
