Norman Evers

Norman Evers was born July 12, 1900, the son of John and Sarah Evers.

Norman attended Kingsley School, and with his classmates, carried gallon syrup pails with his lunch each day.

He worked on the farm with his father and brother until he developed a disease of the bone in his right arm at the age of twelve.  Under doctor's care for the next six years, it was hard to do farm work to which he was accustomed, so he finally went off to business school in Fargo.  In 1924 he began work at the First State Bank of Binford where he held a position until 1931.  He then went back to farm work and other jobs.  In January of 1933 he started the Binford Hardware Store in the former Hammer- Thinglestad Store, which had been closed for a few years.  Mr. Evers retired in 1974 after forty-one and a half years in business.  He sold out to Glenn and Carol Paulson on June 1, 1974.

1.     Evers married Olga E. Olson in 1929.  They have two children: 

2.     Norman, Jr., who married the former Dorothy Nelson, and Shirley who married Iver Lundeby.  They have nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
