This note is from Beverly Peterson's family tree:

Richard & his brother Chris came to the Sidney, MT area in the spring of 1912. Richard worked for George Dore southwest of Sidney on the old Lambert road (14th Street S.W.). Oscar worked for Thorwald Jensen who was renting Peter Anderson, Sr.'s farm at Ridgelawn. Chris filed on a homestead in the Andes community. The younger brothers were still at home. Richard worked on his parent's farm or on Chris's homestead until he was married.

Richard married Eva Elizabeth Jorgensen on Sunday, April 29, 1923 at her parents home in the Andes community. The Lutheran minister, Rev. Carl Nelson, came from Sidney, led the regular church service, and then officiated at the wedding ceremony. The community friends and neighbors attended. Richard's brother Chris and his sister Esther were the attendants.

Richard enlisted in the army in 1918 and trained near Portland, Oregon. He was getting ready to go to France when the war ended. He was discharged January 1919.

Richard remembered his parents telling that while they were moving to Hjorring with a team and wagon, the wagon upset, as it had narrow wheels.
