Mary Annette, second child and eldest daughter of Ole and Thea Myervold was born in Hallingdahl, Norway, January 2, 1881 and passed away Jan. 6, 1940, at the age of fifty nine years and four days.

When about 1 1/2 years old, she came to this country with her parents and older brother and settled in St. Paul, Minn. They lived in various points in Minn., and Iowa during her girlhood. She was baptized in the Lutheran faith.
