In 1928 Jacob's second wife said Jacob's parents weren't living! Idon't know if that means that when he went to America his parent weren'tliving in 1902!

Near Edward Larvick's homestead, a little village had had severaldifferent names before Temvik became official. For some time it had beencalled Larvick (1902 -1910). Edward and Olaf owned several of the lotson the west side. A promoter and speulator, Templeton, wanted it namedafter him. A controversy ensued. At a hearing, a compromise had theresult of taking "Tem" from Templeton and "vik" from Larvick, omittingthe "c".

At one time Temvik had a "shopping mall". The General Merchandisestore sold groceries, dry goods, hardware, and machinery. All this underone roof, was owned by twoo farmers, Edward Larvick and William Foell.Besides there were three grain elevators, a barber shop and pool hall, alumber yard, a cream station and a meat market. At Edward and William'sGM Store, much of the merchandist was charged -- no credit cards then --until the fall of each year after crops were harvested, threshed andsold. Too often, this ran into thousands of dollars, wich were neverpaid.

One cold, blustery day in January, a farmer's wife came to the storetelling about her family's dire need of warm winter clothing andblankets, but with no money to buy. Their previous years' purchases werestill on the books, but Edward gave her blankets, Stockings, andunderwear to avoid suffering. Countless sustomers took advantage of thiskindness, but like the healed lepers of Jesus' day, forgot to even returnthanks.

Finally, it was either bankruptcy or farm and chattel mrtagages!Believing that filing bankruptcy was dishonest, mortgages were chosen.To pay off the indbebtedness to banks and wholesalers required a lifetimeof sweat, toil and sacrifices for the entire family. Mother and daugher,sisters and neices helped the men with field work such as plowing,disking, harrowing, (usually walking behind), cultivating, seeding,mowing, raking, stacking, shocking Loading, the header-barge, and haulinggrain. All machinery was horse drawn. With a lifetime of worry, thechattel mortgage was paid in full just 18 months before Edward's death in1942.

In November 1941, Edward was made aware of terminal cancer of theliver. Instead of gloom, he rejoiced that God would soon call him home.Visitors who came to cheer him, were cheeered by him, who believed, "Forme to live is Christ, and to die is gain." Philippians 1:21. He didn'tleave the family monetary wearlth; what he did leave was a great heritageof love for Christ.

Edwards father Carl, homesteaded on 3 quarters of land in SouthDakota but then sold this property and moved to McIntosh County Wishek,ND. Here is where Edward received his early education he attended schoolup to the 4th grade. His first grade teacher was Thomas Fiedt and theschool term was one month. These classes were held right in his home.Henry From was his second grade teacher, his salary was $25 a month.While in the classroom the pupils spoke English, on the playground theyspoke German. Edward tells of the time when his father drove to Lpswich,SD with two oxen to grind wheat into flour. This trip took five days tomake the 95 miles. In 1903 the family came to McLean County 8 milessouth 1 mile east of Mercer, ND. Here they roughed up a barn and movedin until the sod house was finished. Edward plowed sod barefooted.

Katherina’s father was also a butcher andonce a week went to market with his sausage, ham, pork hocks and freshlyrendered lard for sale.
The climate in Kassel was quite mild so meat handling was not to befooled with. People here never needed heavy clothing, overshoes orgloves because of the temperature.

Katherina’s fare was $90 --- for this she worked one yearfor a ranger by the name of Daniel Liska. It took about a year beforeshe recognized any American money. The only money she ever had was theone cent offering the few times she got to church services. Katherinachores were to bring in the cows early morning. Milking and householdchores mostly washing dishes. Here is where she ate her first jam, andoatmeal was a treat. She worked in SD 4 years and in 1908 came to McLeanCounty where she met and married Edward J. Gessele in the courthouse atMcClusky,ND. Their witness was Tobias Wall.
