In 1920, when Ole and Ingeborg Lunde retired from farming, and went to Hayward to live, Rudolph and Hattie Lunde took over the Moscow farm. Peter and Emma Lunde bought their own farm down the road. Their son, Olaf, said that for about 5 minutes Margaret owned the Moscow farm, then she signed papers (quit claim?) as the elder, and it went to Rudolph. I'm assuming that Margaret lived in Hayward with her folks, but that is something else I have to check. After Ole Lunde died, she did live in Hayward with Ingeborg (her mom). ( I saw both of them there in 1934 when I was 9 yrs old, and again in 1942 when a trip to Minn. was my graduation gift after high school. My sister, Virginia and I went back on the train, and visited all my Mom's relatives.)
