America, Move, Earn
Mary Jensen Dilberg wrote the following account, in
English, in 1972. She was born in Aarhus, Denmark, on
November 4, 1891, sent out to earn her own living at age 12
and journeyed to America by herself in 1911 where she
spent time in Red Lodge, Montana, Ord, Nebraska, and
finally settled in Bothell, Washington, near Seattle, where
she spent most of her adult life except for a four year return
to Nebraska from 1919 to 1923.
