Historia biográfica

Anders Lunseth and his wife Mali (Hjelseth) emigrated from Molde, Norway, in the late 1890s and first settled in Pope County, Minnesota, USA. Around 1898 they moved to Upham, North Dakota. They then moved to South Fork, Saskatchewan and in 1913, they travelled the Edson Trail to reach the Peace River country They stayed with the Ronnings for a time while their house was being built. They had persuaded the Hagens to come north too and when they did, the two families (25 people) lived in the Lunseth house until Hagens got theirs built. Lunseths were the first family in the Molde district so they were responsible for the mail at first. In 1923, the Lunseths moved to Bend, Oregon, but returned to the Peace country in 1926. Mr. And Mrs. Lunseth were active community members, helping with the building of the Molde School and the Valhalla Lutheran Church. Mrs. Lunseth was active in the Ladies Aid and the Women's Institute. They had 12 children: Oluf, Anna (died 1911), Carl, Alfred (died 1925), Elmer, Ole, Ragna, Marie who married Harry Hoosier, Inga, Louise, Morris (died 1972) and Helen who married Emanuel Dolemo. Anders died in 1929 and Mali in 1934.
