Ole Larson's Folks

My computer caught a bug & is in the shop for a day or so. Most of the material for my next post on the ND homestead land is languishing there with it. As a preview, here is one graphic:

Following a separate thread, I received Smith Larson’s official military records from the archives. Lots of pages, but little new info. It reconfirmed that Smith fought in the Battle of St. Mihiel, but has no info on his whereabouts during the next and larger battle close by (Meuse-Argonne, or “Battle of the Argonne Forest.”) Also little or nothing on his apparently serious medical problems during and after his deployment in France. All told, though, probably enough stuff for one or two new posts. As always, stay tuned.
