Elizabeth Fricker Hug, Trimbach, Switzerland migrated to American arriving on May 13, 1905 on the SS LaSovoie. She and her daugher (Lena Eloise Hug b. 1 Aug 1903) were joining her husband, Emil Alfred Hug, in Havelock, Nebraska where he had set up homestead prior to sending for his family. The family eventually migrated to Montana to work on the Huntley Project.
The family lived in a tent for the first year, then in a two-room dwelling until enough money could be saved to build a house. It was built in 1916 by Mr. E. A. Kraske, and is still standing on the original homestead. A son, Arthur, was born in 1914 and a daughter, Irene, was born in 1916. The family decided to venture into the dairy business, and gradually accumulated a herd of Jersey cows. Mr. Hug's horse and buggy, loaded with bottles, was a familiar sight on the streets of Worden early each morning, winter and summer, rain or shine. In the late twenties he gave up the milk route but continued with the dairy business, selling cream to the Thompson Dairy in Billings until his retirement. Mr. Hug passed away on the homestead in November of 1958, and Mrs. Hug at the Laurel Nursing Home in February of 1966
