Harry George Jensen was born on May 27, 1885, in Deer Park, St. Croix County, Wisconsin, the son of Hans Jensen and Stena Gilstad Jensen. His father was born in Denmark and his mother was born in St. Croix County. He grew up on a farm and as a young man headed west to Washington and Idaho where he became a lumberjack and blacksmith. He came home to Wisconsin to visit his parents and fell in love with the young woman, Signe Gunderson, who worked for his parents on their farm. He had planned to stay only a short while, but ended up getting married and having a child. He and his wife, Signe, decided to go to Idaho to live and there they had another child, this time a girl. After awhile Harry decided it would be best for his children to be raised in a farming community in Wisconsin so they would know their grandparents and he could do farm work. Several years later he took over the farm when his father could no longer do the physical labor that it required. Harry passed away in 1949 due to uremia and complications of pneumonia. He was survived by his wife, father, and two children.
