Peter Youngren was born December 11, 1863, in Sweden. He came to Odebolt in 1881 and engaged in farming and mercantile pursuits. He operated a store called "Youngren & Smith The Grocers". On October 2, 1892, Peter married Bessie Larson, born August 18, 1870 in Ramsdalan, Norway. Bessie came to the United States in the spring of 1889 and located in the Odebolt vicinity. Peter died September 14, 1893 of typhoid fever and Peter and Bessie's son Paul, was born six days later. After Peter's death Mrs. Youngren sold her husband's interest in the store to Pete Hedberg. In 1895 Bessie Youngren married Alfred Youngren, a brother of Peter. To Alfred and Bessie two sons were born, Hilmer and Bert. Bert died in childhood. In 1908 Bessie was again widowed when Alfred died as a result of falling from a load of hay. Bessie managed to stay on the farm with her two sons, with the aid of hired help, until her sons were old enough to take over. Mrs. Youngren died in November 1922. Her son Paul married Clara Larsen; and Paul and Clara's son Carol Youngren and family now live on the Youngren farm. (in 1977)
