VERNER & ANN ANDERSON

        The recognition as a Century Farm for Verner and Ann Anderson was earned through virtue of the following events:

        Verner’s maternal grandparents, Gustaf and Maria Hyry, came to Otto Township in 1877 from Copper Harbor , Michigan and purchased twenty acres from the Northern Pacific Railroad in Section 24 (Northwest corner) for $9.00 an acre. The deed was signed by President Chester A. Arthur. In 1884, they purchased the adjoining eighty acres in Section 23 (N ½ of NE Ό) and in 1916 the E ½ of NW Ό was added and purchased by Charles and Kaisa Anderson in 1918 and became a part of the farm in Section 15, established in 1901. The title was eventually passed to Verner and Ann Anderson. Tom Anderson, fourth generation, farms the eighty acres in Section 23.
