BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES

Dr. John F. Timm was born in Germany in 1867. He immigrated to the United States at age 17 and went to medical school in Chicago. He practiced medicine in Iowa and Illinois for several years before coming to Emmet Township. Timm married Lydia Wiechman (1877-1951), who worked as a nurse. They had two children, Eulalia Helen (Bjornholt) and Herman M. John and Lydia homesteaded in the northwest corner of Emmet Township in 1905. Lydia died in 1951 and Dr. Timm died in 1954 and is buried at St. Peter Cemetery in Emmet (McLean County, N.D.). The family farm was passed on to Eulalia (Tuimm) Bjornholt and her husband Melvin.

Ed Bjornholt
emigrated from Norway to Clarksfield (Minn.) in 1903. The following year, he moved farther west and homesteaded in Blackwater Township, in McLean County (N.D.), Ed, Borger, Antonson, and Konrad Iversonm, all cousins, came to North Dakota and homesteaded in the same area. Ed married Rachel Hanson in 1907.
