2. Richard Rutherford (Walter 1) was born in 1792 in Northumberland County, England and died in
1852 in South Monaghan, Northumberland County, Ontario, Canada at age 60.
------------------------might be some connection between the grants of land the Rutherfords
received, and military service for England. Is there an easy way to know
whether or not these Rutherfords were given land because of participating
in, for example, the War of 1812 or an earlier war in England or America?
-------------------------------------Brothers Richard and James were probably younger sons of Walter . Primogeniture prevailing,
the oldest son would have inherited the land in Scotland. Unemployment prevailed after the
Wellington campaigns in Great Britian.
----------Richard appears to have been born ca. 1792 per the 1842 Census. Margaret Davidson says it
may have been 1793 or even 1791. "the summary on the sense I saw indicated that the census

border.
one of the "riding families" of the Border. "Rutherford the Reiver" is a poem telling of this folk
hero of the area. The reivers were the sheep thieves (fairly honorable occupation apparently)

the Rutherford family in Canada. :
IN MEMORY OF RICHARD RUTHERFORD
written by John Rutherford,(1840- 1922), son of Richard Rutherford
Born in Northumberland, England near the border of Scotland. His occupation was a shepherd, herding his sheep on the Hills of
Cheviot in Scotland. He emigrated to Canada in the year (1817?) by sailing vessel on the ocean six weeks. Landed at Quebecsailed up St. Lawrence River into Lake Ontario, Landed at a Port called Coburg, on Lake Ontario, from there he traveled West
into the County of Northumberland and Durham (to) Town of South Monaghan where he located 100 acres as a homestead. Built
him a log house- cleared several acres. For ten years he worked on his land clearing off- then returned to England for a Partner in
Life.
( see Richard Rutherford for full details of text)
In this time two of his brothers, James and Walter, had joined him from England. Walter met with an accident which proved fatal
and was buried on the homestead- there being no Public Place within miles. James, his other brother, some years after was
interred there with several other relations. My Father, who passed away in the year 1852 and Mother in (?) 1856- Both Laid
away on the Old Homestead. It makes the Old Home sacred to Memory when we look back and think of the Joys and Sorrows
that was spent on the Old homestead
Scottish ancestry
------------------I think the Joseph Rutherford in Cavan, Lot 11, Conc. 10, might
be connected to the family for these reasons:
- The proximity to South Monaghan
- Joseph is listed on this index as having come from Scotland.

- The date of 1818 on the index indicates Joseph came to Ontario close to
the time Richard, James, and Walter arrived.
- Richard is listed as having his residence in Cavan in 1823 (on the Land
Record Index)
-------------------------------They took in the daughter of Isabella D. Kinghorn (widow of John Kinghorn), stepdaughter to Alexander Anderson.. She was
Margaret Kinghorn. Margaret cared for Mary Rutherford who was Richard's daughter. Mary Rutherford was Rebecca
Emberson's mother. According to Margaret Emberson's written history, Richard and Jane Rutherford were devout Presbyterians
who walked to church in Centreville from their home on the farm. This would have been in the 1830's because they attended
there when Mary, their daughter was a baby. James and Rebecca Emberson later lived on the farm. (From history written by
Margaret Emberson)

-------------------------------------1851 Census lists family as "Free Church"
----------------------------"The family burial plot was on the east side of lot 6, conc. 2--Richard's
original crown land. The land went to James (his son). The plot had 6-8
flat stone markers, surrounded by a stone fence. It was supposed to be
the family of Richard." (per Margaret Davidson's letter of Aug.22,
1988--in custody of Pam Wiedmann)
A deed drawn up in 1903 by Richard's sons, William, John, and James
verifys the location of the plot and that the parents and grandparents of
these men are buried there. (Richard and Jane Rutherford, William and Agnes Nichol) There was to be ingress and egress
granted
to family members forever. (papers in custody of Gary Rutherford, Fargo,
ND. Copies are with Pam Wiedmann)
The cemetery had been plowed over and none of the stones remained. This
was done some time after 1980 and before 1988. In the plot were buried
Richard (died 1852) and Jane Rutherford (died 1856), William(died 1834)
and Agnes Nichol (Jane's parents), James Rutherford (died 1846, the
brother of Richard), Margaret Rutherford (died 1847, daughter of James), and Walter Rutherford, a brother who lost his life in
an accident according to a letter written by John Rutherford. (listed in cemetery papers of 1903) Letter in possession of Gary
Rutherford, Fargo, ND. Pam Wiedmann has copies.
Adam Buckham's children were given the right to have ingress and egress
also. His monument is now in the Presbyterian graveyard in South
Monaghan. (Still called Centreville Presbyterian church) Adam Buckham
and Mary Nichol may have been buried in this plot originally.
------------------------------------Militia returns of 1828
According to Margaret Rutherford, "All males, aged 16-60, were required to join the militia. Muster day was June 4, annually.
If you didn't show up you were fined 5 pounds--so everyone showed up. There are no service or personnel files on militia
members until WWI. The Canadian Encyclopedia provides essentially similar information: "until the 1850s such acts (militia
Acts) in Upper and Lower Canada, NS and NB usually imposed compulsory service on males between 16 and 50 or 60, with
annual or more frequent enrollment muses. This institution, the Sedentary militia, was unorganized and untrained."
Then, later, there was an Active militia. In 1828 it is probable that Richard and James were with the sedentaries, and probably
resented it."

MI) (note by Pam Wiedmann of Phoenix, Arizona, Feb 20, 2001 to James C. Anderson. "Regarding 5616 (5607): This
information is NOT correct. Richard's son, William, was born in 1832 and died in 1904. He married Margaret Smithson in
1858. They did, however, have a daughter named Sarah among their nine children. Their son, William Smithson Rutherford is
the father of the Margaret Davidson who lived in Ottawa. I received lengthy letters from Margaret in the late 80's before she
passed away. She was a lovely lady, and wrote at length about the Rutherford history in the South Monaghan area. Her
information and much of the documented evidence that she provided me, helped to dispel many of the errors that Silas had in
his information. He did the best he could, I'm sure, but it was quite a mess to untangle a lot of things. ") 5617 (5607) John B.

------------------------------------------------The particular area of Northumberland, you are interested in, has inhabitants who generally went to the "Scotch" Church.
They were non-conformists, probably continuing their family beliefs following their relocation in England.
English records are straight forward as they are lodged here in Morpeth. Scottish Records have been transcribed and are
available here also.

Good evening Pam
I had a dabble last night in the Presbyterian records for Falstone after examining an extract from a book on Presbyterianism in
Northumberland.
The book was written, as far as I can gather about 1900, I could be wrong. The date is important as there is reference to Parish
Chest material before 1790. This is not in Morpeth Record Office and the archivist and I think that it was not deposited
because it was lost. It could be destroyed or is hidden away in someones attic, for safe keeping.
I had a look through the Communicants Roll of 1795 with annual updates and whereas there were a good few Rutherford there
were no Alexanders and the only Richard appears in 1810 with his wife Mary. They were living at Hawkknow. In the
accounts of the Quarterly Sessions of the Church Elders Robert and James Rutherford are listed as Elders. There names
appear regularly up to 1809 when new elders take over and the Rutherfords leave. Current thoughts are that your Rutherfords
were not part of Falstone congregation, as there is no record of them, or they are on the lost list, or they were at another local
church. The marriage of Richard and Jane was by licence indicating that one of them was not of that parish. I suspect Richard
was the incomer getting married at Jane Nichol's church. There are plenty of Nichols about, and the name is very
Northumbrian.

Richard was already 59 ON THE DAY OF THE CENSUS. What was the date of the 1851 Upper Canada Census? If he had
passed his birthday then he was born in 1792. If it was due then it was 1791. If we are uncertain then there is a need to trawl
everything one year before and one year after.
Have you seen the actual films of the registers or have you relied on the IGI? The IGI is merely an index and much important
information is missed in making the data uniform for processing. (And it is not reliably accurate)
If you have seen the films please tell me the registers you have checked so that I am not wasting more of your money revisiting
them.
The economy of Redesdale is still based on agriculture and when your ancestors were here there were hirings held twice yearly.
The reason I am saying this is that if your ancestors were workers then the family may have been uprooted yearly and moved
around the area which is large and extends into Scotland. Not the problem then as it is now. Alexander is the only other
Rutherford that I know to be associated with Richard and his absence from English registers suggests a cross border link. He is
the key.

Are you certain of the siblings of Richard? Is the marriage of Richard to Jane Nichol correct? Have you looked at anything, in
Northumberland other than church registers?
Richards date of birth and baptism could not be found in Falstone Anglican, Falstone Presbyterian, Simonburn, Greystead
Registers.
I am getting a copy of the entry of the marriage of Richard and Jane Nichol. You may not have noticed the witnesses or seen
the full entry:
Richard Rutherford of Gowerburn of this parish (over 21) to Jane Nichol of Ferneyknow of this parish (over 21) were married
by Banns (though not read in St Peters?). Witnesses William Nichol, William Robson, Alexander Rutherford.
You need to ask yourself where does Alexander fit in the family?

After Walter was killed in an accident, his two brothers in South Monaghan, Richard and James, agreed to name their firstborn
sons "Walter" to honor their brother.
(per Silas Rutherford's letter to Hazel Herd, 1978.)
-------Silas Rutherford had told her that his father John, nephew to Walter, said that Walter was killed by a falling tree. (Per Margaret
(nee Rutherford) Davidson letter, dated November 18, 1987
---------------------I believe the records from the Township of Smith for Lot 25, Conc. 9 confirm
that Walter Rutherford and his son Walter Jr. were father and brother to my great great grandfather, Richard Rutherford. The
time references and the ages of the
"Walters" (on the "Book B. land board record) and the fact that the Township
record shows Richard as a "Grantor" in 1840 for the land, all support what
was known about the younger brother Walter--i.e.. he arrived after Richard
and James arrived in Ontario (after 1817) and he met with an accident and was
killed.
The "Book B" in which the son and father (Walters) are granted land,
specifies they came from Scotland. This is the link to our Scottish heritage!
------------------------------------------------On the papers I have for Lot 15, Concession 3 in Monaghan, the first owner listed is Richard Rutherford, the Patent dated 1839.
A letter recounting the family history written by Richard's son states that the brother Walter met with an accident and died. He
is buried on the "old homestead (Lot 6, Conc. 2). Later, Walter found additional land in South Monaghan. Walter was killed
sometime between December 1823 and March 1839, because by 1839 Richard held Lot 15, Concession 3, and no further record
of Walter is found. Walter would have been between the ages of 24 and 40 when he met with the accident.
---------------------------------Death registrations will only be available if the individuals you are concerned about died after 1869 (Ontario did not register
deaths before this), and even then, it was not well enforced, so there is no guarantee of success. It may be worthwhile to also
search the available cemetery transcripts for the locale where they died, and once we have a date, the local newspapers for death
notices.

at age 77, and was buried in Regina Cemetery.
Sidney & Mary Rutherford were married in Township Hamilton, County Northumberland,
Province Ontario - March 27, 1889. On October 2, 1891 Wordsworth Sidney was born, and on
December 17, 1893 Stella Mary was born.
The family resided and farmed the old Rutherford Homestead in the Township of South
Monaghan until the spring of 1903 when they followed the slogan "Go West young man, go
West." Sidney shipped a carload of settlers effects from Millbrook, Ontario to Melita, Manitoba
in March 1903. Mary, Wordsworth and Stella followed by passenger service a short time later.
Sidney and Mary farmed a section (320 acres) N.W. of Melita on a crop-share basis until 1910.
Wordsworth and Stella received their public education at Belfry Public School located in this area,
and Stella continued her education at Melita High School. Wordsworth helped on the farm.
In 1905 Sidney filed on a homestead 25 miles West of Weyburn, Saskatchewan. A homestead contained 160 acres and a preemption adjoining the homestead was also available at a moderate price. Sidney preformed his homestead duties "residence
during winter months." He drove a 4-horse wagon team from Melita to the homestead 25 miles west of Weyburn several
summers to do the necessary breaking of virgin prairie to fulfill his homestead duties and qualify for his homestead and preemption "Patent or Title."
In the spring of 1910, he and his family moved to Forward, Saskatchewan which was the end of the railway west of Weyburn in
1910, the “steel” having been laid in fall of 1909. He shipped two carloads of effects including household goods, machinery,
horses and stock. Sidney and Wordsworth accompanied the effects, while Mary and Stella followed shortly after.
The homestead was about four miles from Forward, but there were only trails to travel over. This was some improvement from
"homestead duty days" when settlers traveled 25 miles to Weyburn or 20 miles to Yellow Grass for supplies. From the spring
of 1910 things moved smoothly along for the family. Buildings were built for comfortable living, and land brought under
cultivation. The general countryside improvements, including roads, were accomplished. Telephone companies were organized,
and telephone lines built, school districts organized and schools built.
About 1911 Wordsworth was able to file on a cancelled homestead one and one half miles from Sidney's homestead & purchased
160 acres adjoining. This was gradually brought under cultivation, and farmed in conjunction with Sidney.
Sidney & Mary continued to farm their farm during the “dirty thirties” but sold their farm in the early forties. Sidney passed
away in 1942 in Grey Nuns Hospital in Regina and was interred in the Regina cemetary.

was born on 2 Oct 1891 in South Monaghan, Northumberland County, Ontario, Canada, died on 25 Aug
1967 in Mission City, B.C., Canada at age 75, and was buried in Hatzic Cemetery (Masonic).
In 1903, Wordsworth moved with his family from Ontario to Melita, Manitoba, where
According to Hazel Herd, Sidney was the only son of James A. left in Ontario when the family
moved to ND.
Wordsworth & Olivia Rutherford, Jean
Mary & Hazel
--------------------------------(Cir 1928)
he attended Belfry Public school, and farmed with his father. In 1910 the family moved to
Forward, Saskatchewan. About 1911 Wordsworth filed for a cancelled homestead near his father, and bought 160 acres of land
which he farmed.
Wordsworth purchased his first Ford car in 1916 and was among the first in that area to own a car. He also had the ftrst peanut
tube set (radio) with ear phones in the district.
About this time Wordsworth met Miss Axford who came out from England to keep house for her brother Frank, who lived and
homesteaded a couple of miles east of Sidney, and before long, a wedding was planned. A few months before the wedding,
Wordsworth's farm was a scene of activity. A house was moved in, a barn and garage built. Wordsworth and Olive were married
July 20, 1921, the wedding taking place in the local school house, and the whole countryside attending.
They lived at the farm near Forward, (Township 36-7-18) The farm was called "Seldom Seen". It was one mile south of Sidney
and Mary Ann Rutherford's farm. Wordsworth homesteaded one quarter section and bought another quarter section.
Wordsworth bought a house and pulled it onto his property. It was a three-room house, had a furnace in the basement, and a sink
with soft water (from a pump) in the kitchen. Light was supplied by a gas lamp, and kerosene lamps.
Jean Mary and Hazel Irene were both born in the farm home, and Dr. MacDonald attended both births. On the night before Jean
was born, Olivia stood on the seeder and helped Wordsworth plant the seeds for the lawn for the tennis court. On the day that
Hazel was born, Wordsworth was bringing in the potato crop. He had taken a step out of the cellar stairs in order to put the
potatoes in the storage bin. Olivia, wanting to know how the crop was turning out, walked into the cellar and through the
missing step!
The family made a trip to England when Hazel was two, first spending Christmas in Ontario with Wordsworth's relatives, and
staying with Aunt Jessie Dawson. They returned to the farm in March, 1927. Olivia's father came back to Canada with them for
a visit at this time.
Things moved along for Sidney and Mary, Wordsworth and Olive, Jean and Hazel with the small ups and downs until the fall of
1928, when Wordsworth and Olive sold their farm and moved to Regina, Saskatchewan. They rented a house on Broder Street.
Wordsworth worked for General Motors until they had to close down because of the Depression. Jean had started to school on
the farm with Agnes Crump as her teacher. She attended Wetmore School when the family lived on Broder Street.
Wordsworth built a lovely new bungalow on 978 Athol Street, Regina, Sask. and the family moved into it in 1929. Hazel started
to school there, and both Jean and Hazel attended Kitchener School. The family lived above a store at 898 Retallack Street for a
period during the Depression years. During this time, Wordsworth worked as a night watchman at Victoria Park Block and later
at C.I.L. He got poisoning from the paint at C.I.L. however, and had to give up this job. He then found work as caretaker at
Central Collegiate, thanks to Charlie Little, a friend from Khedive days. The family moved to Osler street to be nearer
Wordsworth's work. Jean and Hazel both attended Strathcona School at this time.
Wordsworth worked at Central Collegiate until he retired in 1956. He was head maintenance man for 24 years. The family
moved back into their bungalow for two years in 1937. Jean and Hazel attended Scott Collegiate where they had their Uncle Will
Houghton for a Latin teacher. The family then sold the bungalow and bought a house at 2277 Hamilton Street, Regina, Sask. in
1939. Jean and Hazel attended Central Collegiate for grades 11 and 12, across the street from this house, so it was handy for all.
The family vacationed in Ontario in 1939, taking Wordsworth's parents on this trip with them. They went to see the Dionne
Quintuplets on this trip. The Second World War broke out in 1939, and it was also the year that the King and Queen visited
Regina.
They moved to Mission B.C. in 1958, and Wordsworth built their retirement home there with the help of two carpenters.
Wordsworth belonged to the Masonic Order, Assinaboine Lodge, in Regina, and held several offices. He died in 1967.

Wordsworth married Olivia Eliza Axford, daughter of Andrew Axford and Mary Ann
Wiltshire, on 20 Jul 1921 in Abbot School, Forward, Saskatchewan, Canada. Olivia was born on 8
Mar 1893 in Swindon, Wiltshire, England, died on 18 Jun 1982 in Kamloops, B.C. Canada at age 89,
and was buried in Hatzic Cemetery (Masonic).
Olivia, was the youngest child. When she left school, she went to work at Morse Ltd., a
Draper's Shop. (like a department store). She worked as an apprentice for two years, earning one
shilling a week during this period. She worked at Morses for six years in dresses and shoes
upstairs, and yard goods downstairs. She also worked at Romford, Essex for one year.
Wordsworth & Olivia Rutherford
Olivia then decided to go Canada to keep house for her brother Frank. She came out on "The
Hesperian" on November 14th, 1914 at the age of twenty-one, the crossing taking 11 days. (The Hesperian was torpedoed
shortly after that crossing during the First World War) She went to live with her brothers, Frank and Norman Axford, near
Trossachs, Saskatchewan. She lived with Mrs. Curzon in Weyburn for the first month or so to get accustomed to the country,
moving out to the farm in January, 1915. She had a lot to learn about farms, horses etc. in Saskatchewan in those early days.
Olivia worked for Longmans in Bengough, Saskatchewan one summer (1917) because her other brother William and his wife
Minnie came to live at Frank's from Willow Bunch, Sask.
Her brother Norman Axford married Margaret McTaggart June 2nd, 1920 in Vancouver, B.C. Frank Axford later married Lydia
Firman March 14th, 1925 and continued to farm at Trossachs, Saskatchewan.
Olivia met Wordsworth Rutherford shortly after she came to Saskatchewan, and after a while he used to come and take her riding.
She did not think that Wordsworth was serious about her, however. She made a voyage back to England in the fall of 1920,
returning to Canada in March 1921. One day Wordsworth slipped a ring on her finger, and thay were married on July 20th, 1921
at Abbot School near Abbot Siding. Rev Jaffery of Khedive officiated. It was a very hot day on July 20th, 1921, and Olivia's
veil stuck to a newly varnished chair at the reception! She also managed to trip over a plough-share (used as a shoe scraper)
earlier that day and had a very sore foot!
After Wordsworth died, Olivia sold the house, and went to live with her daughter Jean, and Jean's husband, William, at Cold
Lake, Alberta in 1968. She made trips to England and Australia during her retirement years. Olivia belonged to the Order of the
Eastern Star Excelsior Chapter # 21, becoming Worthy Matron in 1954. She was a member of the United Church.
Olivia passed away on June 18th, 1982 in Kamloops, B.C. and was buried beside her husband Wordsworth, that being her wish.

Red River Valley. His 60 years in Walhalla were his most rewarding. Meff enjoyed good health and maintained a positive attitude
toward life, while living out his years in the heart of the land he loved. In their later years, Meff and May spent their winters in

at a time!" Deb and Ange stayed eight years in Chicago, he working on the streetcars, and she as a hair dresser. Their daughter,

Chivalrously but tragically, two Walsh county men, Nichol Rutherford and Joseph Cernik, each 23, of Fertile and Farmington
townships, respectively, met death early Friday morning when a truck bearing a load of coal they were returning to this section
overturned at the foot of a hill on a lonely stretch near Sawyer, N.D.
Kenneth Rutherford, 19, also a member of the party and brother of the driver of the truck, suffered bruises and shock, but his
condition is not critical. Parents of the dead men are Mr. And Mrs. J. N. Rutherford, eight miles northwest of Grafton, and Mr.
and Mrs. Peter P. Cernik, residing five miles northwest of this city.
Both men died of internal injuries sustained from the weight of the coal and shock. Icy roads are believed to have caused the
truck to get out of control and upset.
Funeral services for Cernik were conducted at 11 a.m., Monday in St. John’s Catholic Church, Grafton, with Father William
Mulloy in charge. Burial was in the Grafton Catholic cemetery.
Members of Company C, Grafton National Guard unit, in which Cernik was a corporal, added a military touch to the service.
Walter Quist sounded taps at the cemetery. Pallbearers were Oscar Gourde, Frank Bernard, Charles Votava, Raymond Collette,
Wilfred and Arthur Laurier.
Rutherford was buried in the Hoople cemetery following funeral services yesterday afternoon in the home near Hoople and in
the Hoople Woodmen hall. Walter Jardin officiated.
Pallbearers were Russell and Clinton Rutherford, Lloyd, James and Herschel Larson and Marlow Hanson.
As the men lay dying, far from immediate, help, the concern of each was for the other, the injured Kenneth told Sheriff R. W.
Kennard of Ward county. Sawyer is a few miles southeast of Minot.
As Kenneth dragged himself from the wreckage and sought to help his two companions Cernik pleaded with him to “help
Nick,” and Nichol responded: “No, you help Joe.”
Both men were dead within a few minutes. Their bodies were taken to an undertaking establishment at Velva in McHenry
county, a few miles from the scene of the accident.
The three young men who had been trucking potatoes to the western part of the state, left home for Bismarck Tuesday and
after disposing of their potatoes loaded the truck with coal which they intended to bring to Grafton to sell. They were nine miles
south and a mile east of Sawyer when the truck went out of control and turned the load of coal over on them.
Nichol Rutherford was born in Fertile township, Walsh county, and attended school in that district. For the last several years

Prior to our marriage November 15, 1942, my sisters Alfred (Babe), Mabel and I owned and
operated a Ladies Apparel Shop in Drayton, ND.
In May 1941, Dean, just out of Barber College, bought a barbershop in Drayton, which was
directly across the street from our shop. He was young and handsome, and it wasn't long before
we started dating. We had so many good times together in our young carefree days! After a few
months we began to talk of marriage. Now the war was raging, and Dean got his draft notice to
register and report to Fort Snelling in Minneapolis on November 9, 1942. Regardless of what
others thought, we decided to get married.
Our honeymoon was brief. Dean left for basic training in Camp Adair, Oregon ten days later.
After two or three months, I joined him there. When he was sent to Yuma, Arizona for desert
maneuvers, I was not allowed to go with him, so my sister-in-law Phyllis (also a war bride) and I
got enough ration stamps for gas and we drove back to Drayton.

James Dean was born January 4, 1944. In May 1944 Dean was given a couple of week's furlough to come home to meet his son
for the first time. Then it was overseas duty, so he got on the troop ship headed for Europe.
On February 23, 1945, Jon Hubert was born. Dean came home after the war was over (VE Day June, 1945), and made the
acquaintance of his second son. We settled in a modest home in Drayton, which was across the street from the school. This is
where the boys grew up. We lived there until they graduated from High School. Dean went back to barbering. These were very
happy years. There wasn't a lot of money, but we had many good times together. The boys were active in all of the school
activities: basketball, baseball, music, etc. We enjoyed all of these things, and tried to go to all of their games both home and
away. We felt blessed to have two strong boys and so thankful to have Dean back home safely.
January 1, 1956, I went to work at the Drayton State Bank with the intention of working a year or two to 'help out.' In January
of 1982, twenty-six years later, I retired from that position.
In 1965 Dean went to work for American Crystal Sugar Company as Chief Clerk in the office. After a few weeks he was
promoted to Office Manager. He retired in 1982. Dean passed away January 29, 1992, ten months short of our 50th wedding
anniversary.
After graduating from Medical College, Jim went on to become a physician. He has been associated with Altru Clinic and
Hospital since 1978. Jon graduated from UND Law School and has had his own private practice in Drayton for the past 33
years.
Our best times have been spent with our sons, their wives, and our seven grandchildren. Four great grandsons have also joined

Marvin James Rutherford
Marvin James Rutherford ("Jim") was born September 6, 1922, attended by a midwife, Mrs.
Culingsrud from Park River. He was born on his parent's farm in Walsh County near Grafton,
North Dakota, and baptized at North Trinity Lutheran Church near Hoople, North Dakota. His
parents were Hannah (Dahl) and John N. Rutherford, and he was the youngest son of eleven
children. Hannah was the first white girl born in Walsh County. Her parents had immigrated
from Norway. John, who was better known as "Jack", had come to North Dakota with his
parents from South Monaghan township in Northumberland County, Ontario.
Jim grew up on the farm his paternal grandparents homesteaded in 1888. He attended Rural
School District #51. School began at 9:00 am and closed at 4:I'm with a half- hour lunch recess
and 15 minute recesses in both the morning and afternoon. The school Jim attended was a white
one-room schoolhouse and all eight elementary grades were taught there. There were rows of
various sized desks with a coal-burning stove in one corner. The teacher was her own janitor and
received a salary of about $60.00 per month. Sometimes she would board at the homes of the students.
Jim was the youngest son and he always thought of his brothers as his "big brothers" for they were not only big in size, but they
were also quite a bit older. Kenny was the closest in age to him, and he was five years older. Nick was 11 years older, Joe, 15
years older, and Deb was 17 years older. Some of Jim's memories from the farm include Joe holding him up by his feet over a
manure pile!! He often played with his younger sisters, Clarice and Gladys, because they were closer to his age. Gladys
(Brosseau) said, "He was such a cute little boy, and so obedient all the time. He used to sleep upstairs on the sleeping porch,
three to a bed with his brothers, and before he went up, he would always kiss Mom and Dad and say, "Good night mother--Good night father."
As a boy, Jim's chores around the house were picking eggs and milking the cows. Winter grocery money came from the sale of
the cream from the cows and the eggs. When he was a little older he helped his Dad and older brothers with the field work.
There was a party-line telephone in the house, and Jim remembered that you could "rubber-neck", or listen in on someone else's
call, and when the phone rang four times, that was the signal that the call was for the Rutherford family. He remembered one of
his favorite gifts as a child was a little red wagon that his older cousin, "Miff" gave him.
One of the most difficult periods in Jim's life, and for his whole family, was when his brother Nick was killed and then just four

61
months later, his sister Harriet died. Nick, his brother Kenny and a school friend, Joe Cernick, had gone to Velva, North Dakota
with an old truck full of potatoes. It was during the Depression in December 1934. In Velva they sold the potatoes and bought
lignite coal for the family's furnace. They were headed back home December 21, driving through the night in order to get back as
soon as possible. All three were in the truck's cab and were on unfamiliar road, going down a hill, and not knowing it curved at
the bottom. As the truck went off the road, it overturned, throwing Kenny clear, but pinning both Nick and Joe under the heavy
lignite. Kenny rushed to try to save his brother and friend, but could not free either. Trying to help Nick, he heard his brother
say, "No---help Joe!" As Kenny vainly attempted to free Joe, he heard Joe say, "No---help Nick!" Kenny ran to the nearest
house, getting there at 6:00 am. But by the time the rescue party returned to the truck, both men had died. Nick was just 23
years old.
Of course everyone in the family was deeply affected by this calamity. Nick had always been so good to Jim, and as a young
boy, he couldn't understand how such a kind person as Nick could be killed as he was. The local papers carried the news of the
tragedy, using the quote from the Bible, "Greater love has no man then this----that a man lay down his life for his friend."
Only four months later, the family again received tragic news. At this time, Harriet and Alfreda ("Babe") were in Chicago.
Delbert ("Deb") was working there as a streetcar conductor, and the sisters had gone there to work at the World's Fair. Harriet
had gone in to have some routine surgery done on her foot on April 28, 1935. She apparently was given an overdose of ether, and
died on the operating table while Babe waited outside. Harriet was only 24 years old. Her body was shipped back to the
farmhouse where the funeral was held. These two events, occurring so close together, left a lasting scar in the hearts of all the
family members.
Once in a while, Jim's father, Jack, took him to the western movies in town, but entertainment was scarce. The family often sang
together, played croquet on the lawn, or horseshoes. After Hannah and Jack began their church affiliation with the Convention
Churchs of America, church meetings were held in member's homes close to the farm, and Jim attended regularly.
In 1936, at the age of 14, Jim earned extra money by ordering items from the Spores Wholesale catalog and selling them at 50%
profit. He would take samples of ball point pens (which were a new item), pencils, Christmas cards, and "Sew No More" overall
patches, and with his father's car he went from farm to farm carrying a suitcase filled with samples and being a "traveling"
salesman. Although when he got low on gas, he'd have to go back to the farm and fill up again before he could go further, so he
said he wouldn't get too far from home!
Beginning in 1937 at 15 years of age, Jim began working in the potato warehouses in the Fall. From then on he worked steadily
on the farm during the planting and harvest, or in the warehouses to earn money. Monday through Friday, he worked ten-hour
days, handling 100 pound sack of potatoes. On Saturday, the workers were able to quit early at 3:00 PM and the employer
would give his workers a beer as a reward for a good week. Jim would get a bottle of orange pop because he was too young!
Jim attended High School at Hoople for a time, but his primary responsibilities were on the farm where he learned from his
father and his older brothers how to provide for his future family by becoming proficient at farming. His first tractor was a 1941
DC Case. After 1942, he rented from 40 to 80 acres of extra land to plant his own potato crop. With the extra money he made
from his crop, he bought his first car, a 1937 Pontiac convertible. During this time, one of Jim's friends was Allen Gilleshammer.
They used to sing together and go to dances. Jim was introduced to Gladys by her brother Allen, but she was gone most of the
time--traveling around the country as a Naval recruiter during the War. Jim also had a brother, Kenny, whose welfare he worried
about during the war. Kenny was on active duty in the Navy aboard a submarine, but he returned home safely after the War.
(See Gladys I. Gilleshammer's history from this point on)
Marvin married Gladys Irene Gilleshammer, daughter of Peter Gilleshammer and May Agnes
Cecilia Olson, on 9 Nov 1946 in Crookston, MN. Gladys was born on 8 Oct 1923 in Teien Township,
MN and was christened in Skjeberg Lutheran Church, Teien Township, MN.
Gladys Irene Gilleshammer
Gladys Gilleshammer was born October 8, 1923 in Teien Township, Kittson County,
Minnesota, the daughter of Peter and May Gilleshammer. She was born in May's girlhood
home and baptized at Skjeberg Lutheran Church in Tien Township. Peter farmed there until
1928, when the family moved to the Fred Moore farm northwest of Auburn, North Dakota.
Gladys attended elementary school in the Country District and for eight years. Eleanor Davis
Assand was her only classmate. Those years were financially difficult for Peter to sustain his
family, so Gladys lived for a time with her Aunt Hilma (nee Olson) and uncle Irvin Felt near
Stephen, Minnesota. While she attended high school there, she helped babysit Hilma's children,
Linda and Arden. She also played clarinet in the Stephen High School band. In 1940, after
twelve years near Auburn, the family moved to the old Tufft Farm near Grafton, North Dakota.
She graduated from high school in 1941.
After graduation, Gladys worked for Montgomery Ward's--first in Portland, Oregon and then in St. Paul, Minnesota. The Twin
City Ordinance Plant was also an employer, where she worked making ammunition during World War Two. Soon after being
employed there, she enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard Spars and received her training in Palm Beach, Florida. She served as a
recruitor throughout World War Two, often sending her ration coupons home to her parents.

Jim and Gladys met after she returned from her War duties in 1944. They'd both gone to a dance on a Sunday evening at the
Rod and Gun in Grand Forks. Jim asked Gladys to dance, and they were together the rest of the evening, dancing to songs like
"Sunrise Serenade." He gave her a ride home that evening, and left her at her door with a goodnight kiss.
The first time that Jim became aware that Gladys was really interested in him was when she drove her father Peter's car, a blue
1941 Desoto sedan, out to the field to greet him. She stayed with Jim's family for for their evening meal, and before long, they
began to date on a regular basis, going to dances, movies, and places like the Hamilton Fair. Jim was impressed with the "little
voice" Gladys had, her beauty, her turned up nose, her good cooking ("the way she cut potatoes up into little squares), her
dancing, and her winsome ways. Gladys loved Jim's wavy red hair, the way he used to sing to her, the fact that he could "fix
anything", and his crooked smile. She also liked the way he dressed. They made a good looking couple, and by 1945 they were
an "item".
Jim sold his 1937 Pontiac in order to get some extra cash, but after the potatoe crop was harvested in 1946, he went to
Minneapolis and bought a new 1946 Ford. Dealer price on the car was $1,350.00, but cars after the war were scarce, due to
retooling of the factories, so he bought his new car on the black market for $1,950.00. When he returned from Minneapolis, he
bought a new, brown, pin-stripe suit, a new pair of shoes, and he was ready to get married!
Gladys and Jim were married at 12 o'clock noon, Saturday, November 9, 1946 in Crookston, Minnesota. They were married in
the parsonage of the Trinity Lutheran Church by Reverand Andrew A. Haugen. Gladys wore a brown suit with matching
accessories, and a corsage made of talisman roses. Their attendants were her sister, Betty Jean, and Jim's friend, Olaf Aasand.
Afterwards they had a dinner party in Grand Forks and then went on a short honeymoon to Winnipeg, where they stayed at the
Royal Alexandra Hotel.
The newlyweds returned to Walsh County to live with Jim's family for a year. Their rooms were on the farmhouse's second
floor, where the sleeping porch served as a bedroom, the hallway area as a kitchen, and the adjoining bedroom as their living area.
Gary was born in 1947 while they lived upstairs and they had his crib in the bedroom with them. One day Gary fell down the
staircase in his stroller, and Grandmother Hannah rocked him all night in her rocking chair to make sure he was all right.
After a year with Jim's parents, Jim and Gladys rented buildings on the old Wick farm near Grafton. Diane was born in 1948 and
Pamela in 1950 at the Grafton hospital during this time. Jim found out about some good farmland in Traill County, and with the
help of his brother, Joe, he bought some land there. In the Spring of 1950, Jim and Gladys moved to the old Frendburg
farmstead east of Hillsboro, Traill County, North Dakota. That Spring the Goose River flooded over its banks, and it backed up
into the coolie north of the home and surrounded the house.
Peggy Colleen was born in Hillsboro in 1951 and Charles Peter in 1952. That same year, an indoor bathroom was installed, and
as Gladys said, they "got that wonderful running water." All of the children attended the Caledonia School until it was
consolidated with the Hillsboro school system in the Fall of 1958. From that time on, they all attended the Hillsboro schools,
and all graduated from high school there.
Through the years both Gladys and Jim were actively involved in their communities and busily raising their children. Jim was
an assistant baseball coach when Gary played for the Caledonia Little League. He was also involved in the 4-H Clubs. He was a
director of the Shelly, Minnesota Farmers Elevator, a member of the Trail County Red River Valley Potato Growers
Association, and belonged to the fraternal organizations of the Elks and the Eagles.
Jim always loved cars and could tell the year and model of any car at a glance. He had a talent for singing and was called upon to
sing in several community programs. He also loved to play the piano and organ, and although he was never trained technically,
he often played by ear as he sang along. The children fondly remembered the many times their Dad would sit down to play,
especially on Sunday mornings, as the rest of the family prepared to go to church. He might sing "April Showers" or "I'm
Forever Blowing Bubbles"----songs he often sang. Of course, most of his time was spent working around the farm. He was
very particular about keeping the farm buildings and yard in good shape, and he was a perfectionist when it came to his fields.
He was known to have some of the straightest crop rows in the county!
Gladys' main role was as a mother to her five children, but she too was actively involved with her community and neighbors.
She was a leader in the 4-H clubs, was on the Christian Board of Education of Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Hillsboro, and
taught Sunday School for many years. She also was a charter member of the Willing Workers Homemakers Club for 25 years.
She was known for her hospitality and for her wonderful cooking and baking. She also loved fishing, gardening, reading and
doing crossword puzzles.
Jim and Gladys farmed for 25 years ten miles northeast of Hillsboro and then moved to Grand Forks in 1975 where they bought
a townhouse. In 1978 they moved to the Oxbow Country Club, south of Fargo where they were amongst some of the original
home owners. After moving from the farm, Jim share-cropped his land, and later rented it out after the buildings were sold.
Both Jim and Gladys took up the game of golf and enjoyed playing it often at the Oxbow Country Club. They owned two
motor homes, spending time touring around the county, until they found their winter home in North Fort Myers, Florida near
Gladys' brother Orvil in Florida. On July 14, 1996 Gladys and Jim celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary at the Oxbow
Country Club with their five children, 13 grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren attending. Over 200 friends and family

were at their reception.
They enjoyed many fun winters in Florida until they sold their home there in 2002. They remain active with their children and
grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
--------------------------------------------------------Gladys Irene Gilleshammer (Memories shared Oct. 04 on Montana visit with daughters)
When a freshman and sophomore in high school Gladys lived with her Aunt Hilma. When a senior she lived with Thelma and
Merle. She was the only one to graduate from high school in her family. "I remember Dad bought me a clarinet. I was so
thrilled. I faked it a little bit when playing in the band."
After she moved to Minnesota to work at Montgomery Ward and then to Oregon with Orville and Joy. She noted "I was such a
patriot" that she enlisted. She went to Palm Beach, FL. She "wanted to do everything just right - I got a demerit for doing it too
soon. G.I. Gilleshammer. "I always got a comment on that name tag!"
Her best "gal friend" was Harriett Miller. The enlisted together and worked together before in Minneapolis and New Brighton.
She volunteered to be in the color guard and also put the flag up in the morning and took it down during taps at night.
Orville was wounded in training camp in Oregon (dynaite caps) while she was enlisted. "It was very sad."
Gladys finished boot camp and was picked to go to Yomen's school (what she wanted) for six more months in Florid. She
graduated and was sent to San Francisco. When on a ferry ride, "all by self, all alone I thought of it as a brand new life and
wondered what was going to happen to me." From there I went to Salt Lake City in recruiting. Got a panel truck and drove all
over Utah - set up booths in police offices and gave entry tests to 18-yr-olds.
Orville transferred to Bushnell Hospital in Utah. C.B. and I went to the hospital to visit all the wounded. Most amazing was
the skin grafting. Got attached to some.
Transferred back to Denver and back with Harriett. It was beautiful. Could see Pikes Peak in the distance from her office
window. Then back to Salt Lake City where CB got married one weekend to a sailor. Together 58 yrs. now. CB was a devote
Christian.
Transferred to San Francisco. On the way the whole train of service people got food poisoning. I was in the top birth and I
couldn't get out of bed. It was awful - "sick both ways."
"I was discharged in San Francisco. I knew the war was over so spent days cutting confetti which was so thick and beautiful
when we threw it out of the windows. Sailors were just wild and were everywhere. They stole my hat right off my head, and
were pretty rowdy. We had to call the military police to take us home for our own protection."
Helen Mary and Bill Fredlund had an apartment. Harriett and I stayed there a week on the beach then went back to
Minneapolis and then to Grafton in '45. Allie and Jim ran around together so I knew him. I danced with Jim then at a dance in
Grand Forks and he gave me a ride home and I started going with him. I was 23 when we got married in November of '46.

Clarice LaVerne Rutherford was born on the family farm near Nash, ND on May 20, 1926; the
youngest of John and Johanna Rutherford’s 11 children. She attended school in Nash and Grafton
High School, completing hairdressing school in Grafton. While working in Fargo, she met
Donovan Boyd Astrup. After a whirlwind romance of 3 months, they fell in love and were
married in Fargo at First Lutheran Church on March 31, 1957. Her children would often ask her
later if they too could get married after knowing someone only 3 months. Her standard answer
was, ”If you are also 30.”
Clarice and Donovan moved to Grenora, ND in northwestern ND, where Donovan was reared,
and farmed there for five years. On January 21, 1958, their first daughter, Karen Lee was born. A
second daughter, Joni LaVerne, joined them on June 29, 1960. In March of 1962, the family of
four packed all of their belongings, including a tractor and a playhouse Donovan had made, in the
farm truck and moved to Buffalo, ND. They bought a farm six miles NW of Buffalo and
continued to farm there, raising wheat, barley and sunflowers. The family also enjoyed having

sheep, ponies, several cats and a dog. Buffalo was a warm, friendly community and they made
many friends there. Clarice kept busy at home, church and as a 4-H leader.
Life suddenly changed on August 9, 1974, when Donovan was tragically killed.

Timothy Ray Larson, 21 of Buffalo, ND pleaded guilty to second degree murder and attempted murder in Fargo Tuesday. He
was sentenced to 39 years at the State Penitentiary at Bismarck.
Larson pleaded guilty in Cass District Court to slaying Donovan Astrup, a Buffalo farmer, at Astrup's home last August 9. He
also pleaded guilty to firing at Mr. Astrup's wife, Clarice, in an attempt to kill her.
Larson was arrested by Cass County sheriffs deputies on August 13 and was charged with first degree murder and attempted
murder in Cass County Court August 14. He was arraigned in District Court September 23 on the same charges and pleaded
innocent. District court Judge Roy Redetzke declared Larson mentally competent to face trial after psychological evaluations
were conducted for Larson at the State Hospital at Jamestown.
Larson was accused of entering the Astrup home about six miles northwest of Buffalo before 1:15 a.m. Aug. 9. Astrup, 45, and
his wife awoke and discovered a man in their bedroom. When Astrup arose from his bed, he was shot in the chest with a high
powered rifle. The man fired at Mrs. Astrup when she pursued him out of the bedroom.
A motive for shooting Astrup was not discussed in the court proceeding, including a preliminary hearing in County Court in
which Mrs. Astrup identified Larson as the person who shot, her husband. Assistant States Attorney, David Bossart,
prosecutor for the case, said that the absence of a definitive motive was a primary reason for reducing the charge from first degree
murder to second degree.
First degree murder is premeditated; second degree murder is not a calculated act. “We had a lot of suspicions,” Bossart said of
possible motives. But, he said that evidence for any motive was not sufficient to present at a trial. “We talked with almost 90
witnesses,” Bossart said, “and that’s exclusive of law enforcement people.” The prosecutor had listed 26 witnesses, mostly law
enforcement people on the criminal information submitted to the court.
After Larson pleaded guilty to the reduced charges, Redetzke asked Bossart and Lyle Huseby, Larson’s attorney, for their
recommendations concerning a sentence. Bossart recommended 30 years imprisonment for the murder and 15 years confinement
for the attempted murder, to be served concurrently. Redetzke accepted Bossart’s recommendation, which was the was for the
maximum sentence prescribed for both of the charges.
Huseby made no recommendation, a quite uncommon development during a sentencing for a serious crime. Ordinarily, a
defense attorney speaks to the court of reasons for leniency for his client.
Earlier in the proceedings, however, Huseby asked Redetzke to ascertain from Larson that Larson had decided to plead guilty on
his own accord, and not by suggestion from Huseby. Larson confirmed to the court that his decision to plead guilty was made
without pressure from his attorney.

Companies after his military retirement, then was forced into his second retirement after a massive stroke. He had to learn all
over again, how to speak, how to write, how to use his muscles to walk. But his hearing has never returned. He still has some
heart problems too. This past year he has been on oxygen and is a little stronger.
Joan is a multitalented lady, excellent cook, an instinctive fashion sense and very good saleslady. When they were living in
Walnut Creek, CA. she went back to school and got her real estate license. Since they moved to South Lake Tahoe though, she
has worked for a dry cleaning firm and retired a couple of years ago as Manager and Bookkeeper. She still has her Real Estate
License!!
Some physical problems are limiting her active time, but she is still happy and cheerful.
Dale J. Garver, Jr.
b. May 16, 1946, in Nome, AK.
m. Kathy Gabrial Grandy on Dec 7, 1970 in Walnut Creek, CA. mother of his first 2 children:

David James Garver.
b. Feb 19, 1948 in Fort Lewis, WN.
m. Robin Kiefer on Jul 2, 1972 in San Clemente, CA. 3 boys and a girl.
Stephen Dale Garver, b. Jan 23, 1974 in San Clemente, CA.
Michael David Garver, b. Dec 14, 1976 in Clarkston, WN.
Danny Christopher Garver, b. Oct 21, 1978 in San Clemente, CA.
Jennifer Renee Kiefer, b. Nov 5, 1977 in South Lake Tahoe, CA.
Marriages to Robin Kiefer, Betty White and Marilyn Mitchell all ended in divorce.
m. Cheri Diann Longberg on Jan 7, 1956 in Bellingham, WN. Cheri has 4 children, one still at home. They are living in Baker
City, OR.
David was in the Army in Viet Nam in 1970-1971. He came home with Viet Nam Syndrome continuing unexpectedly for
more than 20 years. He was hospitalized many, many times. This was the cause of his divorces. In the early 1990s the
breakdown seemed to be over. Then on Nov 2, 1977 his favorite niece died in his arms! He had been helping his niece and her
husband bring a horse back from their former home, when the horse trailer was struck at a train crossing. Her husband and the
horse were also killed. He said it was worse than Viet Nam and of course all that came smashing back too. He has recovered
quite well and he and his wife have worked things out.
A couple of times a year he has to get away so he takes off in his small all-included trailer with his two small dogs and drives
up in the mountains or out in the desert. After a month or so he is feeling good again and anxious to be going back home to his
family.
The last couple of years he has worked as an independent contractor repairing and replacing solar panels in mobile units. So
whether he is at home or out by himself, he can find work.

b. Dec 18,1959 in San Antonio, TX.
Martin says he's a confirmed bachelor!
For about 12 years he worked as a waiter for the dinner shows at Harolds in South Lake Tahoe, CA. He's an entrepreneur
who loves selling and is very good at it. He goes to large weekend arts and crafts shows, mostly around San Francisco and the
Coast and has specialized in several things, including T-shirts. The past couple of years he is selling really attractive
personalized golf ball markers. He is very successful, but is now starting to cut down on the number of shows he goes to. He's
made some really good investments, one of which is paying off handsomely already. Quite a few years ago he moved back with
his parents, Dale and Joan. They wouldn't be able to still live in their own home without him!

Pam , glad to learn your granddaughter's CD is completed and you've had some vacation time. Also glad you haven't put
Granddad's genealogy together yet, because I have one more sentence on my Aunt Pearl: #7 Picture: Even though I was only
about 5 years old when Aunt Pearl died I remember what a great sense of humor she had, and how she looked dancing. She's the
one who started calling my mother "GG" for Gertrude Garver.
Have a few changes in Jacque Humphrey from yesterday. Melissa did the typing for MAC after he lost everything for the day
when the computer locked up during the spell check!
Correct the name under Brook Humphrey to correct sp of CARNAHAN.
Correct the name under Andrew Humphrey to correct sp of FENN.
Correct Sentence Sally sewed stuffed Teddy Bears as gifts out of Roger's work shirts.
In previous messages I used the abbreviation for Washington State as WN, please correct to WA, Sorry about that MAC

----------------------------Carl and I met in Denver, Colorado in 1965 and were married there April 1966. He was working
for Braniff Airlines at the time, as a ground service agent, hoping to make transportation agent.
Carl was transferred, and we moved to Amarillo. We lived there a year, and then transferred to
Northwest Airlines, and moved to Great Falls in May of 1967. We lived there for the summer,
and then Carl got a permanent position in Helena, Montana, where we settled for 21 years.
Our first child, Janelle, was adopted in 1969 as an infant of seven weeks. Ten months later, we
had a baby boy, Michael! Needless to say, I was very busy! Two babies in one year! Four years
later, we had another boy, Joel, and he is a red-head! I dare say, he looks a bit like (Jim
Rutherford)! The children went to school in Helena, while I worked part-time as a lab tech for our

pediatrician.
In 1987 Northwest pulled out of Helena, so Carl transferred to Bozeman, 100 miles away, which was the nearest commute! It
took a year to sell our house, and in 1988 we moved to Bozeman, where we live at present. Carl is still with Northwest Airlines,
and I work on-call as an office nurse at a clinic in Belgrade, where I've been employed for ten years. Now it's time to cut back!
We love Montana! It was a great place to raise a family; and we still love to hike, camp, cross-country ski, fish, and do some
floating in our canoe, when time permits."

was born on 21 May 1941 in Walsh Cty., ND.
I was lucky to have lived only one mile from Grandpa Joe and uncle Jack. When we were kids it
was always fun to ride our bikes down to there places. First we would stop at Grandpa's and get
pink peppermint candy and the some times we would go on down to Uncle Jacks and see them.
Aunt Hannah would always have something for us to drink and it was so much fun out in their
nice yard. Then we would go and see the garden they were so proud of. Maybe that is why I like
to garden. Of course it was always fun when Uncle Jacks family came home and we were down at
Grandpa's so we could go to Uncle Jacks and play with the kids, remember the baseball games
etc. It was always nice when Grandpa and Uncle Jack and Aunt Hannah and Alma came up to our
place too.
I went to the old Glenwood school where there were 8 classes in one room, for 8 years. I
graduated from Grafton High School in 1959. Then on to Mayville State Teachers College. The
summer of 1960 I worked at Jamestown hospital as a nurses aid and decided to go on to North
Dakota State School of Science in Wahpeton in to the practical nursing course. After completing
the practical nursing course and getting my license for North Dakota I went on to California and
worked in the county hospital there for 2 years.

When it was time for a change I went to Denver, Colorado and worked a Presbyterian Hospital for 10 years. Time for an other
change so I went to Anchorage, Alaska and worked at Providence hospital for 24 years. Now an other change and I've been in
North Dakota for 4 years.
When I was in Denver the first Intensive Care Units were opened up. I worked in the ICU unit for a few years. In Alaska I was
there while the Oil Pipeline was under construction and worked with many different diseases. Many different injures and many
different nationalities. I also flew with the Civil Air Patrol, what a good way to see the state. We were always out looking for a

downed air plane, or a boat that had got lost. We were flying search and rescue. It was really fun when we found some one alive.
In 1999 I returned to North Dakota and have been working on the rehab unit at Altru Hospital. It is so much fun to take care of
people in the rehab unit that are from the Hoople area and remember the Rutherfords. I have even taken care of people that
remember Jacks children Harriet and Nick. Good to be back to home area.

259. Marlys LaVerne Rutherford (Clinton Joseph 5, Joseph Henry 4, James A. 3, Richard 2, Walter 1)
was born on 28 Jul 1941.
At present I’m living in Grand Forks. My mother, Ruth, lives with me now. She is 87 and has
macular degeneration, so can’t read much anymore. It makes time long for her. She is still able to
be alone while I’m at work, so that is good.
Recently, she was telling about when she would drive Grandpa and Alma, Uncle Jack and Aunt
Hannah to Grafton for doctor appointments. She wasn't a very confident driver, only driving to
Grafton and other small local towns. She laughed to think that they felt perfectly safe with her
driving!
Most of my memories of all the family together was "birthday celebrations” for the twins,
Grandpa Joe and Uncle Jack. There were always lots of people, adults and children, and lots of
good food.
Marlys LaVerne Enge
Nee Rutherford (2003)
I remember a time when we were invited to Walhalla to Uncle Meff's. It was winter, and blizzard
conditions developed before we got home. Grandpa Joe and Alma rode with Uncle Russell’s, and Uncle Jack and Aunt Hannah
rode with us. We managed to get into the driveway before getting stuck. Uncle Russell got stuck in Grandpa's driveway, so we
stayed in the respective places that night. The snow was so deep walking to the house, and I remember Aunt Hannah falling in
the snow and laughing so hard Jack could hardly help her up again! Uncle Clarence's family got stranded at a farmhouse along the
way and managed to get to our place the next day, until the roads to Drayton were open again. That was truly “winter in North
Dakota." Thankfully, we don't see many storms like that anymore.
In 1975, I married Dennis Enge, who was a widower with four children ages six to fourteen, Dianne, Denita, Dan and Darlene.
We had a dairy farm near Appleton, Wisconsin. Those were the happiest days of my life! When the youngest, Darlene,
graduated from high school and joined the USAF, Dennis decided he’d milked cows long enough. In 1986, we moved to Orlando,
Florida. Dennis left me in 1994, and I still grieve over that.
I moved back to North Dakota in the fall of 1997 after the flood. I'm working as an accountant for the Valley Memorial Homes in
Grand Forks. I really miss Florida when winter comes. Our children are in Montana, Oregon, Wisconsin, and South Dakota.
There are 10 grandchildren now.

260. Wayne Clinton Rutherford (Clinton Joseph 5, Joseph Henry 4, James A. 3, Richard 2, Walter 1)
was born on 12 Sep 1943 in Walsh Cty., ND.
Wayne attended the same school as his Grandpa Joe and Lizzie, a mile and a half east of
Grandpa Jack's house. It's in Wayne Rutherford's yard now. Wayne lives on the same farm that
Martin and Karoline Dahl lived on.
---------------------Wayne and Leona (6-22-45) Coker, from Rosebud, TX were married on August 9, 1967 while
Wayne was in the Army, having been stationed in San Antonio, TX and Fort Polk, LA with a
helicopter rescue unit. After his discharge, he began farming again with his Dad in 1969. Wayne
and Leona's first ND home was also the Martin Dahl house where they too lived for eleven
years, and then likewise moved to the' 51 home. They have three children: Richard Wayne (1223-68), Ranetta Sue (7-22-71), and Roy Clinton (11-7-74).
Wayne & Leona Rutherford Wedding
Leona (nee Coker) (9 Aug 1967)
Both Richard and Roy, with Wayne, now operate Rutherford Farms. Ranetta "retired" from six
years of teaching school when she got married and moved to Texas, near where Leona had left 33 years earlier.
Wayne, Richard and Roy enjoy farming together, growing wheat, potatoes and sugar beets, and the legacy continues. Someone
asked Beau (when he was four years old) if he planned to be a farmer when he grew up. With a look of disbelief on his face and
in his voice, he
replied: "I don't know what you are talking about. I AM a farmer!"
Wayne's Memories
Early in life I learned to dress with clean clothes and shoes in the mornings, so when I asked Dad if I could go with him, he
couldn't say I wasn't ready. I concentrated on staying ready! If problems came up, Dad would say with warning voice to us kids:
"Next time I take you along I will leave you home."
One of Dad's favorite stories was about his nationality being half Norwegian and half Scotch. The Norwegian wanted a cup of
coffee, but the Scotch wouldn't buy it, so he would "do without." When asked if he drank coffee, he would reply that he only
drank coffee when he was alone or with someone. Uncle Miff liked to tell about taking his brother to Chicago, and he would say
he had a new five dollar bill and a clean shirt, but never changed either one.
Many times when I was with Dad we would stop in and see how Grandpa was doing. In the wintertime his house was always
HOT with a good-smelling wood fire. Often he would be frying potatoes in an old kettle on the stovetop, to feed Patches, his
dog. Next we would stop in at Uncle Jack's. Dad cleaned snow for them and also hauled water for their cistern, as well as for
Grandpa's, Gena's and ours. Later that got to be my job.
Once when Uncle Jack and Aunt Hanna had ridden with us to Uncle Miff's at Walhalla, I remember that on the way home it
began to snow. Huge flakes were piling up, and when we got to the bridge by Uncle Jack's mailbox, Dad could go no farther. We
were stuck! The night was dark, and the snow was deep. Aunt Hanna fell down in the snow and lay there laughing and laughing.
She wasn't much help to Jack in his efforts to get her on her feet again. We kids thought it was great fun to get to spend the night
there. I also remember their huge garden and big strawberry patch.
I count it a privilege to have grown up being in the Sunday morning meeting with many, including Grandpa Joe, Alma, Uncle
Jack and Aunt Hanna. Hearing their thankfulness for what the Gospel had come to mean to them, and at times noticing the tears
of gladness with their message, seeing their faithful service, and feeling their humble attitude before God was a special and
enriching gift. Fellowship meetings have now been fifty years in this home. When Mother and Marlys come from Grand Forks
for the weekends, there are four generations of us in our meeting.
When I returned home from the Army in 1967, we went in to visit Aunt Hanna and Leona, and then to see Alma at the old
Deaconess Hospital in Grafton. She seemed pleased to meet my wife, the new Leona Rutherford. Later our first son, Richard,
was born in that old Deaconess hospital, just a few years before it was demolished. Part of it is in the river behind our shop.
On a 1500 mile trip south to visit Leona's parents, I "confessed" to her how I had promised myself when I was a little boy,
having to ride in the back seat of my Dad's car ALL the way to Fordville (25 miles) to visit my Mother's parents, that I would

never marry someone who lived so far from her family! Does it make it any closer when you have to be the driver, and have your
own three children in the back seat, making their own promises to themselves??
At different times cousin Leona was at our home, including the time of the Grafton flood when her oil tank was floating near the
ceiling of her basement. Our children enjoyed Leona, and remember staying with her a few times, and visiting her many times.
They liked her feathery "tweeting" bird puppet, and her "ten little monkeys jumping on the bed" story, especially the part
where the Mommy called the doctor and he said, "No more jumping on the bed!"
I have good memories of the times when Dad and Mother and we 3 kids visited Kenny, Millie, Mike and Dan in Burlington,
Iowa, in their old house, and later in their new home.
Through the years we have enjoyed having Rutherford families here with us, INCLUDING:
Times when Gladys and Dean came. They also delighted our kids by buying sweet corn from them.
Many times when Joe Rutherford stopped by, touring crops, etc.
Times when Gena, Vernice, Beverly, Robert and family, Audrey, Jim and family, Miff, May and Joyce have come.
One Thanksgiving vacation when Ila, Erlan, Hazel, Kenny, their children and grandchildren, Inez, Carl and their children were
here for an evening meal. We also have good memories of times when we were with Erlan, Dorothy and their family.
Delbert and Angie being here, and the Italian meals she prepared, and times they stayed overnight.
All the stories, laughing and fun when John, Mabel, Nancy, Gladys, Babe, Clarice, Joe and Marie came for Brunch. That day we
took pictures of the siblings beside the old District 51 schoolhouse they had attended, and which Dad had bought in 1959 and
moved ~ mile East and ~ mile South to the present farmyard, to use for a shop.
The brunch for Gladys before she moved to Grand Forks. We miss her so much in our fellowship meetings, but enjoy getting to
visit her in her home and at gospel meetings in Grand Forks.
After the visitation for Joe Rutherford at the funeral home in Drayton, when Gladys, John, Robin, Jim, Jolene, Tom and Kari,
Babe, Clarice, Jim and Gladys, Gary, and JoAnn were all -here for a meal and a very nice time together.
Leona's Memories
When I first came from Texas to ND everything was NEW to me, including my husband, the family, the two-story home,
basements, the scary trapdoor in the middle ofthe dining room floor, concealing the basement, and one in the kitchen floor with
another lid underneath, covering the mouth of the cistern, "storm" windows, the farm, the scenery, the morning and afternoon
"lunches", the way of thinking and doing things, the winters, the blizzards, the BLACK soil (and the "character" of it), the
rhubarb and raspberries, the lefse and the ""uff dahs"". Did this homestead country present even more numerous NEW things for
the "original" Scotch/Norwegian settlers?!
The first year I was here, I was sure it snowed EVERY NIGHT and EVERY DAY all year long! Many nights I went to bed
thinking I would panic if! awakened to the sight of another white world. Strangely enough, after that first year it has snowed
only during about half of each year! We look forward to the snow's beauty and moisture, transforming our world into what we
enjoy all year long!
I learned from the Nash potato farmers that, contrary to Texas - where potatoes are either "Irish" or "sweet" - potatoes are
potatoes! They may be Pontiacs, Norlands, Norchips, NorValley, or one of many other names, but they are not "Irish", and
they are not "sweet" unless they have gotten too cold, and they may be "reds" or "whites", but not green, unless exposed to too
much light. Therefore, they are to be kept in the dark!
Clinton and Ruth received me as a daughter. I feel no parents have ever more excelled at receiving their son's wife into their
family. I also especially remember the warmth of Joyce Rutherford Dubourt's welcome. Ruth taught me many things, including
how to thoroughly clean, plant straight rows in the garden, can and freeze, make jellies and jams out of the abundance, prepare
nutritious meals, bake goodies, and set a pretty table. Clinton gave me, by example, many valuable lessons on not worrying, and
about taking life in stride. Each crisis finds me "cramming for finals", but also still remembering and still learning . . .

From my parents I had learned that hospitality, serving, farm life, and breathing strength from nature, brought satisfaction and
joy. The same gospel, which my parents believed and accepted in Texas in 1951, and which Wayne's "Rutherford grandparents"
embraced in North Dakota in 1924, made it possible for OUR paths to cross in 1965 in a Sunday morning meeting in my
parents' home in Texas, and ultimately brought me to North Dakota to be a part of this unique Rutherford family.
The Rutherford reunion which Jim and Gladys hosted at Hickson was great -- that was 15 years ago, so it is time for another
one! We look forward to July 20, 2003 here at the Wayne Rutherford farm, 7152 County Road 6, rural Grafton, ND.

Pam, Melanie and Bonnie are both working on your request. Let me know if you
need anything further from me in terms of dates, photos or bio. Here are some thoughts from childhood about Grandpa and
Grandma's farm. Sundays at the farm, croquet, hedge of peonies, playing in the barn loft,
smell of hay, wondering where Harriet's buried treasure was, the trough with
tinges of rust with cold water always running...and the metal dipper and
distinctive odor, the vice in the garage, the black Plymouth, the sun porch
upstairs, Santa at Christmas (which uncle was it this year?), homemade wine
for the grown-ups and homemade root beer for the kids, crabapple trees,
strawberry garden, fresh buttered buns, Grandpa at head of table with his
hand on his forehead when saying grace, Johnny Brosseau playing "Love
Letters in the Sand" on the piano, cousins playing Spin the Bottle upstairs,
exploring the attic, eavesdropping from the staircase, and the OUTHOUSE! Thanks so much for all you are doing, Pam! I really
appreciate it. Margie

267. Nancy Johanna Holler (Mabel Letitia Rutherford 5, John Nichol 4, James A. 3, Richard 2, Walter
1) was born on 3 Oct 1950 in Drayton, ND.
Nancy Johanna Holler was born October 3, 1950 in Drayton, Pembina County, North Dakota.
Nancy was the last of three daughters born to John and Mabel Holler. The family lived in the
small town of Donaldson, Minnesota at the time, where John was employed by the Standard Oil
Company. In 1958 the family moved to East Grand Forks, Minnesota.
In 2003 Nancy recalled some of her childhood memories:
"Among the many childhood memories are the weekends spent at Lake of the Woods fishing out
of Trails End Lodge where Uncle Kenny Rutherford left his boat for the rest of the family to use.
Going out on the boat in the early morning, having lunch on one of the islands, and returning in the
late afternoon was a great way to spend time as a family.
Nancy Johanna Holler
The Sunday visits to the farm of Grandpa and Grandma Rutherford at Nash, North Dakota were
(1968)
always fun, and most times full of adventure for a child. Driving past the Uncle Sam cutout that
defended the mailbox and greeted the visitors to the farm, we would look at the cars in the yard to see who would be available to
play. Grandpa and Grandma would usually be sitting on the screened-in porch waiting for their Sunday visitors,not knowing
who, if anyone, would be coming.
Uncle Joe might be there to push us on the swing while the rest of the grownups did the yard work, or Aunt Leona (Toots)
would grab a shovel and take us into the woods in search of buried treasure. We would even enjoy the chance to use the "extra"
bathroom out by the large garden.
Many times the cousins played spin the bottle in the upstairs hallway, climbed the silo, or swang on the rope from one side of
the barn to the other.
The large table in the country dining room was always large enough to seat everyone that would come to visit. Dinners were
usually potluck with a variety and quantity of foods that would fulfill everyone's taste buds and appetites."
Nancy graduated from East Grand Forks Senior High School in 1968 where she was active in her class. She begin college at the
University of North Dakota (UND), Grand Forks in the fall of 1968 majoring in Home Economics. Shortly thereafter she met Jim
Ostergaard, a senior at UND from Langdon, North Dakota. After Jim's graduation in August of 1969, Jim became a Marine Corps
aviator and they were married October 3, 1970.
After finishing flight school, Nancy and Jim moved to Hawaii where they lived for three years. While in Hawaii, their first son,
Daniel James was born on April 9, 1972. While Jim served in the Marine Corps, Nancy volunteered at various agencies on the air
station.
After Jim's discharge as a Marine Corps captain in February of 1974, the Ostergaard's moved back to Grand Forks, North Dakota
where Jim sold real estate. While in Grand Forks their daughter Juliane Marie was born August 9, 1974. After three years of the
North Dakota snows, the Ostergaard's moved to western North Carolina in March, 1977 where they owned a campground,
whitewater rafting business and a real estate office. Their third child, David Gary was born November 19, 1979.
In 1988, Nancy returned to Western Carolina University (WCU) to receive an undergraduate degree in Human Environmental
Science. In 1991 the Ostergaard's moved to Asheville, North Carolina where Nancy began a career as a field faculty member with
NC State University and the NC Cooperative Extension in Buncombe County. Jim continued to manage their property
investments. In 1999, Nancy received a Masters of Science degree from WCU.
In 2002 Nancy and Jim bought a lake house on Lake Greenwood, SC, two hours from Asheville. They moved to downtown
Asheville to the Grove Arcade which is one of the few arcades left in the USA.

Gary wrote the following in 2000:
I was born at Grafton, ND. I lived in rural Grafton on the Wick farmstead for most of the first
three years, and then moved to a farm near Caledonia, ND in the spring of 1950. While I don't
remember the early days, except vaguely and from pictures, I do remember playing with Ron
Freedland in the barn at the Wick farm. Even though over 100 miles from Grafton, Dad took us to
the relatives numerous weekends. At Grandpa Pete’s there was a bed spring tied by long ropes,
high in the trees behind the house. By pulling on a rope which was tied to another tree to set the
swing in motion, I and all the cousins used to swing for hours, all laying on the bed. Christmas
was always so much fun. Santa Clause was dependable and seemed to enjoy the beverages waiting
for him. 1961 was a big year. I turned 14, got my first car, a 1956 Ford four door sedan (it was
white, but the hired man painted it red for me), Caledonia was consolidated with Hillsboro, and I
could finally stack one-hundred-pound potato bags six high in the railroad car. At the “Burro,”
everything rotated around basketball. We won the Class B Championship, and I played sax in a small rock and roll band. In 1966,
UND became my school. Throughout the school years, there were many adventures, as the “Fabulous Church Keys” played our
music from Detroit, MI to Winnipeg, Canada, to the Roof Garden in Iowa. Graduation day was February 2, 1970. One day after
my graduation, on February 3, I started work at Trane Air Conditioning, LaCross, Wisconsin. My first field assignment was Los
Angeles. That’s where I met JoAnn. In 1971 I became top salesman in the nation. In 1972 I was transferred to Atlanta, Georgia,
and on December 17, 1973, JoAnn and I were married. In the fall of 1975 we moved to Saudi Arabia, where Nathan Jameel was
born (Jameel is “handsome” in Arabic). In 1977 we moved back to North Dakota. Sara Kareen was born in 1979, and Classic
Roadsters was started. In 1981, James Kirkland was born, and the family was complete. In 1993 we started Sugar Sand Marine in
Fargo, manufacturing fiberglass jet-boats. In 1996 we took the family on a tour of Israel. Christianity is a very important part of
the family, thus seeing the numerous places Christ walked was not only interesting, but we learned many new things which will
greatly help to illuminate the Bible. Without a doubt, JoAnn is the very best thing that has ever happened to me. The family is
solid, the kids are turning out great, and after almost 30 years of marriage, our love is still growing.

273. Diane Joan Rutherford (Marvin James 5, John Nichol 4, James A. 3, Richard 2, Walter 1) was
born on 12 Nov 1948 in Grafton twp. , Walsh Cty., ND.
Diane wrote the following in June 2002:
Diane Joan, born November 11, 1948 in Grafton, North Dakota, went to Caledonia public
schools through the sixth grade with only four other classmates. She remembers: being a pretty
good hop-scotch player and tough to beat at jacks; riding bikes to the neighbors over the dirt
roads through the fields; building rafts to float on the coulee; pulling weeds from potato rows;
the club house in the old shed where we'd sit on the edge of the roof and eat raisins for courage
before we'd jump off into the tall grass below; the Shetland ponies; the baby mice; sweeping
roads and make- believe houses out of dirt on the concrete floor of the Quonset; playing school;
making gigantic houses out of bails in the hayloft (before it become a potato warehouse); the
cotton wood trees falling down; the cow Dad had butchered in the yard (she couldn't eat meat
for a long time after); the almost weekly Sunday trips to Grafton to see the relatives (always
Diane Weaver
falling asleep on the way home but waking up in Grand Forks long enough for a 25 cent
hamburger or cone); and so many more memories.
While in 7th through 12th grade at Hillsboro (a pretty scary transition at first), she became more self assured and popular as time
passed. She shed her purple horn-rimmed glitter glasses for contacts in her junior year, started enjoying teen canteen, and of
course boys and all that went with that. Diane remembers her sisters - Pam and Peg - and her having great dance routines with
synchronized movements, often begging Dad to let them go to the dance at Halstad or elsewhere and usually getting to go, Dad
taking them to Minneapolis to see the Beatles, their cabin at Maple Lake that she really didn't take as much advantage of as she
wanted to. Cheerleader and homecoming attendant, Diane excelled in business classes while working summers at A & K Dairy
Bar (the popular hang out) and Piggly Wiggly Grocery Store.
A two-year Associate of Arts degree in secretarial sciences at the University of North Dakota was the next milestone. These
years were full of study table and sorority (Pi Beta Phi) and fraternity partying. Lots of titles including Lambda Chi Crescent,
Derby Darling, Sigma Chi Sweetheart, and Homecoming candidate her last semester - the semester she met Bob Taylor (who was
a bus boy at her sorority). When she finished that semester and her degree she felt it time to get out and go to work (since several
other sisters and a brother were to follow).
Diane moved to Colorado where she'd worked the summer before at Estes Park as Assistant Reservationist at the Stanley Hotel.
This time to Denver finding a secretarial job with Hamilton Management Corporation. Bob followed her there and when he had a
job offer back home, they decided to marry (12-20-69) and moved to Minot, North Dakota. It was a time of starting, working
hard - Bob at retail sporting goods (Big Bear) and Diane at two jobs (school system guidance department and night class
program). They had some good times bowling and playing cards with friends, but mostly Diane remembers working long hours
and sewing when Bob wasn't home cause he worked even longer hours. They were transferred to Great Falls and then Billings,
Montana ('73) with Big Bear. Diane went to work with the Mental Health Center (she had worked at one in Minot and Great
Falls too) as an Appointment Secretary where she
spent the next 13 years working in different capacities ending in personnel, public relations and fund-raising. During those years
their unhappy marriage ended in divorce in' 78.
Being single motivated Diane to even greater career heights. She took on the most challenging job of her life in '85 as Executive
Director of the Billings YWCA. As head of this social service agency her leadership skills were constantly challenged and hence
grew. Diane became the first women member of the Downtown Billings Rotary Club (250 strong) in '88. That same year she
was sought out for a position at Saint Vincent Hospital and Health Center in Billings as Community Relations Manager. Selected
she later moved into Foundation work as Manager of Development and Community Relations..

In '91 Diane became a part-time non-traditional college student at Eastern Montana College. In '94 she completed her course
work and received her Bachelor's Degree in Organizational Communication from the newly named Montana State University at
Billings - an accomplishment that kept her up late many a night with homework while maintaining her full-time managerial
position at the hospital.
Diane married James Wood Weaver July 13, 1996, in an outdoor ceremony held in the backyard of Gary Rutherford's home in
Fargo, ND - the night before her parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. They built a new home in Billings, Montana,
on the “Rims” overlooking the city a year after they married. Jim's mother, Elaine, and sister, Susie, live in Iowa Falls, Iowa, and
Jim blessed Diane with two stepdaughters - Jennifer and Jeri Sue - who brought new delightful experiences to her life. With Jim's
support Diane began making career changes - stepping down from full-time managerial hospital work to flexible half-time status
for three years before resigning in June of 2002. That coincided with the sale of Jim's limestone quarry - a business he had
nurtured for 30 years. Now Jim and Diane concentrate their efforts on their growing trucking company, Warren Transport, Inc.
as well as their other business development pursuits.
During her mid to later adult years, Diane participated in a very active social life enjoying close relationships with many. Her
early love for dancing continued throughout the years - with jitterbug and Texas two-stepping a frequent pastime in her 40's. She
also loved downhill snow skiing, river rafting, golf, bike-riding, travel, times in Washington boating on “Dream Weaver”, scuba
diving, quilting, movies and, of course, eating. She always received a great deal of satisfaction from the balance in her later life successful professional, active in a variety of playful pursuits as well, enjoying her cozy home and wonderful family and friends.

Diane married Robert Taylor on 5 Dec 1969 in Hillsboro, ND. The marriage ended in divorce.
Diane next married James Wood Weaver on 13 Jul 1996 in Fargo, ND. James was born on 10 Dec
1949 in Iowa falls, Iowa.
Jim was a graduate of Arizona State University, where he played football. He owned a limestone
quarry near Billings, Montana which was sold in 2002. He also was owner of a trucking
company, Warren Transport. One of his favorite passtimes was spending time on his 52 foot long
boat, docked in the San Juan Island area near Seattle, Washington.

1) was born on 20 Mar 1950 in Grafton twp. , Walsh Cty., ND and was christened in 1974 in Grace Bible
Church, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Pam wrote the following in 2002:
I was born in Grafton, but I grew up on a farm about ten miles east of Hillsboro, ND in Traill
County. I’m told it was flooding that spring day when Uncle Orvil drove Mom down from
Grafton to join Dad on the farm they’d just purchased. I lived on that farm until I was eighteen,
and I have eighteen years of wonderful memories, too many to recount. I’m told we weren’t well
off financially when I was young, but I never knew that. I was privileged to have an idyllic
childhood. I remember the barn before it became a potato warehouse, the barn swallows
swooping out as I entered, and the mess from the pigeons on the roosting ledge to which we
climbed up. I remember the blood-scent as the cow was butchered out by the twin garbage cans,
and feeling sick about it. I remember the excitement as the little hoofs appeared when Dad
delivered twin calves at the Elliot farm down the dirt road. I remember the jolt of electricity
Pamela Sue Wiedmann
through my body as I touched the wire fence, the smell of ripe corn silage, and the dusty chaff in (Feb 2002)
the silos. I remember Caledonia, the white steepled church before it was torn down, the oilrubbed floors that were swept with sawdust in the little post office/store where we picked out our Nibs licorice, Neco candy and
Black Jacks. There was the four-room schoolhouse with its quonset gym, being a cheerleading mascot with a beanie for the
basketball team, the wooden desks with wrought iron legs, and my only classmate for four years, Neil Hutchinson. I remember
the farmhouse with its back and front staircases. We siblings used to slide down the stairs on a blanket as if it were a toboggan.
The basement used to have dirt in it. Before the kitchen was remodeled in 1959, we used to sit out on the porch on the south side
of the house, especially during storms. Mom liked to watch the lightning there. I remember the ponies being born and jumping on
their bare backs, hanging on to the mane, and galloping down the road. I remember seeing my favorite dog being hit by a car on

the icy road, and Dad tenderly comforting me, as I let my pet die. Once we saved some kittens who almost froze to death, by
having Mom warm them in the oven, wrapped in towels. I remember the North Dakota winters: the snowstorms, drifts, igloos,
angels, plows, toboggans, stinging-hands as they thawed from the cold, caked snow on mittens, scarves tied around faces, and
Kick-a-reenos. Christmas was always wonderful at both Grandma’s homes, with cousins, fun, food, and Santas. The programs at
Our Savior’s Lutheran and school were memorable. We always were given new Christmas dresses to wear, and it was always the
most anticipated holiday as we wondered for weeks what would be in the packages under the tree. Next came Spring with the
rafts on the coulee, lizards in the window wells, sleet storms, black mud, Easter dresses, lilac bushes, cutting potatoes from a bin
on an upright blade for Dad’s field seed, getting the crop in, the smell of fertilizer, seedlings pushing through the black field
mounds, and spring-fever at school. In the summer we biked down dirt roads to the Johnson’s or Rohman’s. Sometimes we’d
walk through the woods, scared to death as we passed “Whiskers” place, getting leeches in-between toes from wading across the
Goose river. We’d can fruit and vegetables in the kitchen, blanching peaches and tomatoes, squeezing juice from choke cherries,
and stuffing cucumbers into quart jars. There were crab apples, raspberries, sweet corn, and more from Mom’s wonderful garden.
I can still smell the dill!. There were skintight bathing caps at the Hillsboro pool, the lakes and D.L. There were the dance
pavilions, Camp Joy, A & K Dairy Bar, frontyard softball, Gary’s band, (the Church Keys) our cottage on Maple Lake, skiing,
and “twist parties. And in our teens, there were boys. Summer evenings gave us entertainment with monster thunder, crackling
white lightning, steamy-hot nights, the black-cloud-quietbefore- the-tornado scares, towering cottonwoods splintering and
crashing down, and white, fluffy “what do you see?” clouds. There were straight rows in the green fields, blossoms on the potato
plants, mustard weed, and lunch taken out to dad. There was golden grain we crumbled in our hands and chewed for “gum,” the
chaff from the combine, and driving the grain trucks (often spilling grain and irritating Dad). In the fall there was burning the
stubble fields after harvest, freezing while sorting potatoes on the harvester, “haunted housing,” golden/ amber/rust leaves, crisp
air, being safe asking for treats door to door, and shopping in Grand Forks for our “school clothes.” Hillsboro was like the movie,
“It’s a Wonderful Life.” I remember the Traill Theater, cheerleading, piano lessons, 4-H demonstrations, band and marching in
parades, Luther League, choir, confirmation classes, Rainbow, and playing piano. I began to grow up.. I was in the library at
school when I heard of JFK’s assassination. There was Vietnam, and hippies, and the Beatles at the Minnesota Twins Stadium
in 1965. We snuck out of our hotel room after hearing a rumor about where George, Ringo, Paul and John were staying. We never
found them. Then I met Jim on a blind date at the end of my Senior year. I went off to UND, became Potato Queen, was rushed
at Gamma Phi Beta, and fell in love with my football-playing boyfriend and his yellow Mustang. Jim and I were married on
Valentine’s Day in 1969 with one of the worst blizzards of the year blowing outside. We lived in Grand Forks in a small onebedroom apartment and then we bought a mobile home on UND’s campus. Jodi was born that year, and I went to work for
Seeger’s clothing store and then Northwestern Bell Telephone. We lived in St. Paul while Jim worked for Weyerhauser, then
Albuquerque where Jim sold microwave ovens door-to-door with his college buddies. It was back to Fargo in 1973 where Jim
was employed with Steiger Tractor, and again, I worked at Northwestern Bell as a Repair Clerk. In 1976 Jim was offered a
chance to move to Phoenix with Steiger, and we’ve lived here ever since. While our children grew up, I worked as a secretary and
announcer at Christian radio station, KFLR, attended school, managed the kid’s baseball and softball games, and generally filled
the role of a stay-at-home Mom. I graduated with a double degree in English Writing/History from Grand Canyon University in
1993. My school, as a surprise to me, had my diploma sent to Westmont College, in Santa Barbara, CA where we were attending
Matt’s graduation ceremonies instead of mine. When Matt walked forward to receive his diploma, the President of the College
called my name, I walked forward with Matt, and we were both presented with our diplomas as we received a standing ovation.
It was a complete surprise to me and a moment I will al- ways cherish. I was recruited the next semester to teach English as an
adjunct professor at Grand Canyon. We built our new home in 1995, and I’ve been “retired” ever since. Jim’s work in the farm
machinery business eventually led to his forming Firebird Fiberglass Products in 1989. The sunshade manufacturing business has
continued to grow, and the company now has about 35 employees, including our son, Matt. My profession and calling in life has
been to be a mother and wife, and now grandmother. When Jake goes off to college in the fall, Jim and I will be “emptynesters”
for the first time in 33 years, and we are looking forward to “just the two of us” and kicking up our heels a little. Besides being
involved with my kids and grandkids, I love the outdoors, hiking, camping, music, reading and writing, and the hobby of
genealogy research. Recently, I’ve been compiling some poetry I’ve written, and I hope to do more of that in the future. The
topics of much of my writing have been inspired by the adventure I’ve had as a believer in Jesus Christ. He is my anchor, and the
reason I view this life as such a gift. Through the good times and the bad times there is one constant in it all, and He is the
sovereign God of the Universe Who has a plan and purpose for all who believe in Him.

Jim noted the following events in his life in 2002:
Jim was born and raised in Fargo, North Dakota. His father worked for the US Postal Service,
and his mother worked for Straus Clothing Company. They attended Calvary Baptist Church,
where Jim was baptized.
Jim graduated from North High School in 1967. While there he was named "All-State" in 1965
and 1966 playing both offense and defense. He went on to attend the University of North
Dakota in Grand Forks, where he received a full scholarship for football, earning three varsity
letters, while being active in the Alpha Tau Omega fraterrnity. He met his wife, Pam, when he
was a sophmore at UND, and they were married that year. He received his B.S.B.A. degree in Marketing in 1971.
Jim held the following job positions:

275. Peggy Coleen Rutherford (Marvin James 5, John Nichol 4, James A. 3, Richard 2, Walter 1)
was born on 29 Jun 1951 in Hillsboro, ND.
Peggy Colleen Rutherford was born June 29, 1951 in Hillsboro, Traill County, North Dakota.
Jim was cultivating potatoes when he was notified that Peggy was about to be born, and by all
accounts, they barely made it to the hospital!
Peggy once recalled some of her most clear memories of growing up on the farm. She
remembered the rain in the ditches, playing in T-shirts and panties in the mud with her brothers,
walking to the mail box, and the smell of chaff from the grain harvest. Working in the potato
fields taught her the work ethic early in life, and she recalled how tired she felt after working on
the harvester. Going to Grandpa Rutherford’s near Grafton was a fairly frequent event, as were
visits with the Gilleshammer side of the family.
Among her girlhood adventures was jumping off the machinery shed. Her brother Gary coaxed
Peggy Colleen Rutherford
her to do so, and eating raisins seemed to give her courage! She not only jumped once, but twice!
Another time Peggy was scared out of her wits by her sister Pam, who had feigned being hurt
upstairs and called for Peggy to come help her. When Peggy ran upstairs to see what was the matter, Pam jumped from behind a
door, dressed in black, with a fake knife raised in her hand! An extremely scary prospect was walking through the woods to
play with Julie Roman. There was an old shack in a clearing on the way, and a hired man lived there. But as young girls, the
Rutherford girls only knew the man as “Whiskers”, and having to pass that shack was frightening, because the tale of Ol’
Whiskers ranked on a scale up there with the Hansel and Gretel story. As time went on though, the treks along the dirt road by
the river and the gooseberry bushes became good memories.
The Caledonia School, Mrs. Paulson as a loving teacher, being a mascot, homemade candy in the school snack shop, and the
oiled wood floor at the Caledonia Store were other things not forgotten from her grade school days. After becoming a teenager,
the Halstad dances, bands, Maple Lake, three sisters dancing, and keeping Mom and Dad awake were events recalled.
Peggy liked the winter the family moved to Hillsboro and lived in a modern house. In high school she was a Student Council
member, played sax in band, was Worthy Advisor for Rainbow, and started the candy striper program in the nursing home. In
addition, she won a citizenship award in Hillsboro, and was director of the teen choir at the Lutheran Church.
After graduation from Hillsboro High in 1969, Peggy worked on a ranch in Michigan and in Atlantic City on the Boardwalk.
That Fall she went to Denver to live with her sister Diane, and attended Denver Women’s College from which she obtained a
degree in fashion merchandising. This was a turning point in Peggy’s life spiritually, while attending Redeemer Temple in
Denver.
Upon returning to Fargo, Peggy met Ward Briggs at the Encounter House, a communal Christian center. They were married in
Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Hillsboro, June 7, 1972. Ward worked in a bank and then was accepted into law school in
Grand Forks, where the couple moved while he attended school. Graham Lee was born there, April 10, 1975. After law school,
the family moved back to Fargo, where Ward was a city prosecutor. Benjamin James was born October 6, 1977 in Fargo. They
bought an older house and Peggy worked at Black’s until she started the Academy for Personal Culture in 1978, a modeling
school and talent agency. She also did free-lance modeling. Jennifer Erin was born February 11, 1982, and shortly afterward,
Peggy sold her interest in the studio to stay home with the children. Fifteen months later, Bethany Grace was born on June 18,
1983, and the family bought a new home in Moorhead that same year.
After her marriage ended, Peggy returned to work, first for her brother Gary at Classic Roadsters from 1989-1990, and then in
Minneapolis to be closer to the boys. There she obtained a license to sell insurance and first worked only on a commission
basis. In 1995 she was employed by Schwarz Williams Company as a broker/consultant for employee’s benefits. She moved
into a newly built home in 1996 in the small town of St. Francis north of the Twin Cities where Jenny and Beth attended
school.
In 2001 Peggy moved to Scottsdale, Arizona to begin a new chapter in her life. She lives near her two boys, who also live in
Scottsdale, and is employed as an health insurance benefits broker.
Peggy writes: "In the past several years some tragic events brought an opportunity for growth in my life. Through these
circumstances have come some profound, yet simple truths-truths that give me grace to live each day with positive expectancy.
I have found that at the point of having lost everything, I’ve found the one thing that truly is lasting, and that is the
unconditional love of Christ. Where I failed, he has succeeded, where I’ve been weak, he’s been strong. When circumstances
have all seemed dark, he has been a penetrating light that has taken me each step of the way. My faith and my family have

become priorities. I look forward to many milestones in the lives of my children, and continuing adventure at home, at church
and with career, family, and friends. My parents and my immediate family have demonstrated in intangible and tangible ways,
the love of God. Healing and restoration are wonderful gifts, and a treasured heritage to pass on to future generations. I look
forward with great anticipation to the fruits of this life producing something far greater in the life to come. I am thankful to say,
all is well with my soul!"

276. Charles Peter Rutherford (Marvin James 5, John Nichol 4, James A. 3, Richard 2, Walter 1) was
born on 4 Nov 1952 in Hillsboro, ND.
(Charles wrote the following in 2002)
I was born the baby of Jim and Gladys Rutherford, November 4, 1952 in Hillsboro, North
Dakota. The earliest remembrance I have comes from listening to my mother reminisce about the
time my brother rescued me from certain death as an infant by pulling me out of the way of a
roll-away car. When the little hero was asked why, the 6 year old Gary replied, "I knew you
liked him! Personally, I believe he needed an assistant for future experimentation!
My formal education had humble beginnings in Caledonia, ND. In one room, Mrs. Stuart did her
best to teach 13 students, in grades 1-4, simultaneously. David Chandler was my only classmate
in second grade. The terror of starting third grade in Hillsboro with more than 50 strangers was
nearly overwhelming!
Charles Peter Rutherford
Growing up on the farm was not always fun but it was invaluable! Where can you learn life's
lessons at such an early age? Lessons like, SURVIVAL when your older brother wants you to
captain his ice breaking raft in early spring, or catch his newest curve ball, or be the first lucky passenger on his old Schwinn
bike, now powered by a 4 HP Briggs & Stratton engine welded to the frame. Or seriously, the lesson that STEADY
PLODDING BRINGS SUCCESS as you work 100 acres of summer fallow. Starting such a project, it doesn't look like you're
making any progress, but turn, after turn, after turn... hour, after hour, after hour...you finish! What a sense of relief - and
accomplishment - for a 12 year old!
After graduating from Hillsboro High School in 1970, I attended the University Of North Dakota in Grand Forks. Major college
accomplishments were 'learning how to learn', establishing lifelong relationships with several ATO fraternity brothers, being bus
boy at the Gamma Phi sorority house (where I met Susan Gronland - who would become my future bride), and graduating in
May of 1974 with a B.S. in Psychology.
Susie and I were married on June 22, 1974 in Fargo, ND. After completing the '74 season on the farm with Dad & Mom, I began
my advertising sales career with KKXL radio in Grand Forks, while Susie completed her B.A. in Social Work at UND. Our son,
Charlie, was born September 28, 1976 in Grand Forks.
In 1979, we moved to Fargo, where I worked at KQWB radio before joining Classic Roadsters, Ltd. Our second child, daughter
Briana, was born August 23, 1980 in Fargo.
I had my mid life crisis at age 28. Years of early career success were followed by a season of discontent. My time of searching
for meaning in life eventually ended with a prayer at the altar of the First Assembly of God Church on the morning of January 4,
1981 that went something like this: Dear Lord Jesus. I know that I am a sinner - lost and separated from God. I believe You
came from heaven, were born of a virgin, suffered and died on the cross for MY sins. You conquered death, rose from the grave,

and now reign in majesty. Right now I turn to you, I surrender my heart and life, asking you to forgive my sins, create a new
spirit within me, and become my personal Lord and Savior. Amen. It's now 20+ years later, and through all the ups and downs
on this roller coaster called life, I can testify that God has always been faithful. His love and forgiveness never fail!
Our final child, Lindsey was born on July 26, 1982 in Fargo. In 1985, Susie and I felt lead to accept a business challenge in the
Twin Cities. The opportunity was to liquidate 200 Brazilian sports cars warehoused in Houston. The paradox was that success
meant eminent unemployment! But as a one man operation, I thought the entrepreneurial experience was worth the risk.
The success of that experience helped me to develop Mobile Med in 1988, a business to work exclusively with the medical
community in the world of wireless communications. We remain in the wireless industry today with Mobile Med, Twin Cities
Wireless, and Club Wireless.
My priorities in life remain my personal relationship with my Lord Jesus, my wife, children, career, and ministry. In my spare
time, I enjoy reading, golf, scuba diving, and trying to stay fit. (I'm thankful) to Dad & Mom for providing me with all the
“things” while growing up, but most importantly with a home where I experienced unconditional love and acceptance! It's been a
priceless inheritance!

will be graduating this May from UW-Stout with a degree in Graphic Design. After 5 years of
study, she hopes to find a career which will allow her to use her artistic creativity to benefit
society. ABOUT JUSTIN Justin was born and raised with his younger sister in Eau Claire,
Wisconsin. After taking some time off in Oregon, Justin is now enrolled at UW-Stout as well. The
couple will be moving to Olympia, Washington this fall, where Justin will be finishing his degree.
HOW WE MET Briana and Justin were introduced through a mutual friend a few times during
July of 2002 at a popular swimming area just outside of Eau Claire. They really hit it off one
night when they happened into each other at a bar in Eau Claire. If it weren't for the fact that
Justin had broken a bone in his hand only weeks earlier and was unable to work his traveling
roofing job, the couple would have never gotten together. After a long night of conversation and
flirting glances, phone numbers were exchanged. Briana called Justin the very next day. They had
their first date several days later, and their second two days after that. The rest, they say, is
history! WHEN WE GOT ENGAGED October 10, 2002 HOW IT HAPPENED After less than two months, Briana and Justin
knew they were in love. That love has continued to grow to this day, and they have faith it will develop for the rest of our lives.
The actual engagement was more of a mutual agreement, only a few months into the relationship. The couple kept it quiet for a
couple more months, but knew there was no reason to delay the marriage. Because Briana was graduating in the spring, she told
Justin to choose the school he felt was best for him, and that she would go with, wherever it may be. So they decided to get
hitched and move out west! WHEN & WHERE June 06, 2003
A LITTLE ABOUT THE BIG DAY The couple has decided to get married in a private ceremony, involving only immediate
relatives. They feel that the bond they are entering into is something personal and intimate between the two of them, and did not
wish to be married in front of a large group. But because all of their family and friends are so important to them, Briana and Justin
want to share their happiness with everyone during a reception the following day!
Briana married Justin Fordahl on 6 Jun 2003 in Blaine, Minnesota.
