    "This has family stories and pictures" For any of you that notice the price and see that I am not taking a royalty on the book, please be aware that the book contains personal family history and pictures. It is not intended for resale and was put on the net so that family members may buy books at an author's price. Pat and Lon Johnson Here is some more information that Earl Simonson just sent:1885-1977 (92) Mellet was born December 9, 1885, the fourth of seven brothers. He and Ethel Magnus were married in 1912. Mellet at the age of 28 was the first of the seven brothers to get married. Since Mellet and Ethel had no place to live, they moved into Grandpa and Grandma’s house while Grandpa and Grandma were living in Canada. Mellet later built their home and dairy buildings on 40-acres located nearby. Mellet and Ethel’s only child, Pearl, was born in 1915. Ethel died in 1929 from an allergic reaction to medicine while in the hospital. Since Pearl, age 14, was the only child, she...

At that time, Pearl at the age of 17, had already endured two devestating life tragedies. She had not only lost her mother but also most of her mother’s mementos and pictures. Mellet rebuilt his house and Pearl continued as homemaker and support of her dad until she married Clarence Johnson in 1944. In 1950, Mellet married Grace Johnson, an older sister to his son-in-law, Clarence Johnson. Mellet and Grace sold their dairy farm in 1963 and moved into Foley next to Pearl and Clarence’s home. We always enjoyed visiting Mellet. He was a very kind Uncle with such a distinct Norwegian Accent. Grace died of cancer in 1974. Mellet died of natural causes in 1977, at the age of 92.< Less
