Description

Mrs. Mohr was born in 1890 in Nebraska. At the age of eleven, she and her family moved to Horton Township in Stevens County. She lived on a farm in that township for most of her life, though during the time of the interview she was living in the City of Morris.

In this interview, Mrs. Mohr recalls her early experiences in a rural setting and compares life as a German American in World War I to World War II. In addition, she discusses the Spanish Flu epidemic, the boom and the depression of post-war Stevens County, and life living on a farm in rural Stevens County.
