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.
