    From Pennington County (Minnesota) History book: In 1891, Emil Thune was born, there was a doctor in St. Hilaire, but it was impossible to get there and when Emil was born, he had crippled legs. They used their home remedies and took boards, tied the legs so they couldn't jump back the way they were. He would have walked on his knees if they had not been corrected. Today [1970s], Emil is still running around on his son's farm, gardening, planting trees, shoveling, etc. He attended school for three years at Braaten School house. At about sixteen years of age, he went out to work on the section for four summers. He was paid eleven cents an hour, ten hours a day. Winter months, he worked for his father cutting cord wood. About twenty years of age, he went to Argyle and worked on a farm for four years at thirty-five dollars a [illegible]. At 24, he married Gertrude Kvall. He rented a farm one year and then bought the farm near Thief River falls that his sons, Norrie and Ernie now own. Emil grubbed the whole farm, 202 acres.
