Selma was the daughter of Oscar and Carrie (LARSON) WALLIN and was born on their farm north of Darfur in Section 7, Adrian Township in the year 1906.
Bill attended St. James High School, Mankato Commercial College and worked for a short time in Charles City, Iowa. He became a resident of Darfur in the early 1920's. He married Selma WALLIN in 1921. In 1926, he bought into the Darfur Implement Company and was owner until mid 1960's when he retired. He built the implement building in 1947.
For twenty-one years they lived in various rented houses and in 1948 they built a new home on the north edge of Darfur, Trajan Avenue. Bill died in 1977 and Selma continued to live there until 1997 when she entered the Eventide Home in Mountain Lake. The house in Darfur was sold to Billís niece and her husband, LuVerne and Dick SIEFKES in August 1997. Selma died in 1999.
