Birth: Nov. 13, 1870
Death: Oct. 31, 1941

The Town of Woodland, formerly known as Township No. 14 Range 3, was surveyed for settlement by Lore Alford of Old Town in 1859, and was divided into lots of 160 acres each. The township is bounded by New Sweden on the north, by Caribou on the east, Washburn on the south, and Perham on the west. At the time when the first clearing was made ...in Woodland, both Perham and New Sweden were wilderness townships and had not been lotted for settlement. The low price at which the state offered these new lands to actual settlers attracted the attention of the men who wished to make homes for themselves and families, and they were not long in the market before the sturdy blows of the pioneer's axe were resounding through the forest and clearings were commenced in different portions of the town.
