The youngest son, Peter Bakkum, goes to the Normal School in Mayville, North Dakota. When one reads my articles in “Fram” - "From the Northwest" Bakkum said that he heard from many people with much interest which led me to have my work arranged to assemble family and settlement history simultaneously
