father, Arni, homesteaded two quarters in Big Point in 1910.İ He
married Gudlaug Ingimundson in 1911.İ My
sister, Sigga was born in 1912.İ Siggaís
mother died 3 years later and she was brought up by their Afi and Umma
Ingimundson.İ She learned to
speak old country Icelandic from them and she is still fluent in it today.
mother came from Chester, Nova Scotia and became the first principal in
the new high school in Langruth in 1920.İ Later
that year she married my Dad.İ They
lived on the family farm for 46 years and raised three daughters and four
taught for over 30 years, mainly in the one room Big Point School, and
during the same time raised seven children.İ She
was a good teacher because although she had nine grades to teach in the
one room, a disproportionately large number of her students there went
on to graduate from University.
Mother and Father placed strong emphasis on education and always encouraged
us to go on with our studies.İ The
result of this is seen in the fact that over twenty of their children and
grand children have University degrees and four are in University this
year.İİİİ ~The End
