States: North Dakota: Ward
My grandfather, Philip Runck, homesteaded in Minot, ND in the late 19th or early 20th century. The family story is that "the government bet him that he couldn't make a living on the homestead property, and they won." He was unsuccessful with farming, so he taught school. The children did not speak English, so he taught in German. By 1908, he had given up on North Dakota and had moved to Colorado. Is there any information about Ward County schools for German-speaking children?
