Photo Number 2205

This is a photo from the antique shop in Fergus Falls Minnesota.
Pickruhn Homestead ND FF Upstairs
Looks like a sod house or a “soddy” to me.  The walls look thick.  Prairie Grass had deep roots and when laid in strips root side up made a house.  Often times the houses were covered on the outside with ash or clay for a stucco exterior.

Mary Edna Peckruhn nee Coooper (Find A Grave Memorial# 88783795)
Ernest M Peckruhn (Find A Grave Memorial# 103289714)
Thelma Tamke nee Peckruhn (Find A Grave Memorial# 89498309)

Followed later by 3 more children:

Clinton A Peckruhn (Find A Grave Memorial# 73815254)
Sevena T Nelson nee Peckruhn (Find A Grave Memorial# 66425478)
DeClois Arthur Pickruhn (Find A Grave Memorial# 104035366) 


They were in North Dakota for only 2-3-4 years between 1910 (in Delano, Wright, Minnesota) and 1920 (in Pomroy, Kanabec, Minnesota).
