From the family chronicles of Soren and Anne Sine Petersen Jensen and descendants:
Elmer lived with his family and helped on the farm until he enlisted in 1917 for duty in World War I. He was in training at Camp Cody, Deming, New Mexico and was then sent to France where he served until the war ended. In 1920, after his marriage, he took over his father's 240-acre farm near Orum. In the 1950's, Elmer sold the farm and moved to Blair.
