Rudolph Bothern, son of Henry and Doris Bothern, was born in Germany, on July 26, 1891. He came to the United States and to Moody County in 1906. On March 25, 1914 he was united in marriage to Anna Reumann, at Flandreau. They started farming near Flandreau and in 1920 they moved to a farm northeast of Colman where they have lived ever since.
Rudolph bought the farm from J. K. Smith and moved on in the early 1920.
The main house was moved in from Severt Severson Homestead, on logs, which was rolled under the house. That was done by taking out the back log and moving it to the front and pulled along by horses. The distance was about two miles from the east of Rudolph place. The depression of the old house remains on Severson's homestead west of the existing house along the drive.
The house was added on to in the winter time, because, the snow was easier to clean off than it was trying to protect it from rain. And, they had more time in the winter time.
Rudolph died setting in front of the big tree Southeast of the house.
