Along the boundary of Richland Township, Rice County, Minnesota and Kenyon Township, Goodhue County, Minnesota is located the farm my father grew up on. In the early 1900's his father, Joseph Marcuson, bought the land and built the farm. Based on old plat maps I was able to locate the farms of both my grandmother and grandfather parents, Erick and Astrid Gunhus and Sjur (Sever) and Ingeborg Markusson. I knew their farms were close to the farm my father grew up on but it wasn't until I was able to zero in on them using Google Earth Maps that I found just how close. The map in the picture shows the locations of the three farms along with the location of where the farm for Christen Benson (Ingeborg Markusson's father) would have been at. The two farms located next to Sjur's farm are those of Erick Gunhus's brothers Ole and Gunder.
