Gullik H. Dahle, Manfred Township, was a native of Norway. He came to Manfred in 1894. He was an early blacksmith and farmer. He and his wife Margit were very active in the welfare of the community and church. He was a very good fiddle player.
The Dahle’s lost their only child at childbirth. Gullik farmed and also owned and operated a threshing rig. Oliver Rodne later owned their farm. Gullik is pictured playing his Hardanger fiddle. He was born in 1862 and died in 1934. His wife was born in 1859 and died in 1925.
Mrs. Dahle: Last Saturday, February 20, Mrs. Marit Dahle was called to her reward as death relieved her long painful suffering.
She had been in poor health for quite a few years, although not confined to her bed. During the last year, however, she has not been able to be up and around because of rheumatism. She bore her suffering bravely and with Christian patience and fortitude.
She was born in Valdres, Norway where she was married to Mr. Dahle in 1892. They came to the United States in 1893 to Manfred, the same year and have lived here since.
She was a respected member of Vang church since its organization.
She leaves to mourn her passing, her husband, two nephews in this country and a host of friends.
