Carl Torgerson and
Alma Moen Torgerson

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

Carl and Alma Torgerson and children Harold and Roselia

Carl Torgerson was born at Fargo, North Dakota and immigrated to Seven Persons in 1909. He worked for Sam Carlson at the livery barn. He was a fine horseman.

In December of 1914 Alma Moen and he were married in Medicine Hat by Reverend Morrow. They lived on his homestead on the northeast quarter of 24-9-7-4, in Seven Persons, in Medicine Hat where he worked for the Ford Garage, in Foremost where he managed a business for John Deere, and back to Medicine Hat where he was a salesman. Children who knew Carl Torgerson will remember how much they enjoyed him, for he was so good to them. He gave them treats, told them stories, showed them tricks and acts of magic. Wherever he went he was a "Pied Piper" to children, for he always had a following.

After he died in July of 1945, his widow, Alma, managed an apartment building by herself. Her patrons were mostly senior citizens who needed reasonably priced housing. Some were retired farmers who hadn't much money and were living on Old Age Pension.
