    Martin Arveson married Hannah Amundson, who was born in Kristiansand, Norway, in the year 1870. She came to the United States at the age of nine years?

    Martin and Hannah Arveson came from the town of Johnson, Polk County, to Hickory Township in 1910. They rented land in Section 14. Bennie Rindahl and N. P. Larson had lived there previously. Joe Digernes lived there later on. They traveled with horses and wagon. The name of their horses were Bill and Queen?.

    Their socializing was visiting neighbors, attending school programs, the Fourth of July celebrations, the Wells Dance Hall and Indian dances?

    Martin and Hannah had close relatives living in Hickory Township including Albin, Swan, and Andrew Arveson and Mrs. John Mostrom. They shopped at Neptune and Roland.

    The iron bridge was built across the Red Lake River near Orland Rindahl?s place in the winter of 1924. They moved from Hickory Township to the Town of Johnson, in Polk County, in 1922.

    Hannah Arveson is buried in St. Pauli Cemetery near Hazel. Her parents, Hans and Martina Amundson homesteaded the farm where the St. Pauli Church is standing at the present time.
