States: North Dakota: Ward
Velva is in McHenry County on the very edge of the Ward County line.If your folks lived just a mile or so towards Minot they would have been in Ward County, but the places that affected their lives such as school, shopping, church etc. would have been in Velva. In the early days I don't think county or township lines made much difference when it came to daily living. When you asked someone where they were from they would usually give you the name of the nearest town.
