  • Notes 
    • !STATUS: CAP
      BIRTH: At home, on the family homestead in Lucas Township near Cottonwood.
      BAPTISM: Easter Sunday, what is now the English Lutheran Church, Cottonwood.
      BURIAL: Roselawn Cemetery.
      EDUCATION: Luther Normal School (now Augustana College), Sioux Falls, South
      Dakota, class 1900. It was here, at a basket social, that she met
      her husband to be, Helge M. Aanestad, from Sherman, South
      Dakota. An interesting finding from the 1900 census (CA-001 and
      CA-002), taken June 1900, was that Anna's occupation was listed as
      `at school' and Helge's was `works at home'. Helge's sister, Alma,
      was listed as living as a boarder at that time with Anna's mother,
      Sara. How did Alma come to board with Sara? Did Alma introduce
      Helge to Anna?
      RELIGION: Lutheran.
      OCCUPATION: Milton Hackett, Anna's nephew writes, "their service was truly a
      partnership affair, with Helge preaching and both of them teaching,
      counseling, and leading and assisting in the numerous church-
      centered affairs . . . musicals, festivals, and societies.
      Ranking next in importance to church and family to Anna and
      Helge, were interests in music and education. These interests they
      imparted to their children. Somehow, on the less than adequate
      resources available to a country preacher in the depression days,
      they managed to see that all eight children attended college.
      Life in a country parish on the prairie is aptly described by
      the title of Anna's memoir. 'Chuckles and Tears'". (ORWOLL DOC 'A')
      Anna was the N.D. District Historian of the Women's Missionary
      Federation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church.
      NOTES: Anna and Helge were married 76 years. He died 2 days after his 100th
      birthday. She died just 2 months before reaching her 100th
      birthday.
      PROBLEM: A-035 lists name with middle initial, Anna C. Dahl.
