Story Summary

The story of how my great grandparents Harrison Lewis Gregg I and Hilda Marie Berglund met in 1907.

The Story

In 1907 my great grandfather Harrison Lewis Gregg I left his family farm in Brookfield Wisconsin to Sidnaw Michigan. There he helped launch the poultry operation at Roycroft Farm which was owned by Walter S Prickett a lumber magnate and business owner.

My great grandmother, Hilda Berglund having graduated from Ferris Institute in Big Rapids, Michigan took a job in Prickett’s office.

They married in 1910 and moved briefly to Wisconsin Dells before settling in St Paul.  There Hilda ran the Gregg Department Store for more than 30 years before they moved to Russell, Minnesota.
