*Information from the Booklet "Ferdinand Zessin Family - by Larry Zessin* At some point after she was born the family must have moved to the Dakotas because she talked about walking behind the farm wagon with all their possessions from the Dakotas to Humeston as a young girl. I believe her father was a railroad station agent, in Humeston, Iowa or Clarkson, Nebraska. She attended Clarkson Normal to gain a teaching degree and taught school before marrying Guy. After farming in Nebraska a trip to Calif. and the Pacific Northwest and back to Nebraska to farm again they moved back to South San Francisco, California where she worked at a Levi Factory and attended night school with Dad so both could learn woodworking and how to build a house. At the end of the war in 1945 they moved to a farm near Sacramento where she milked the cows and tended the garden and crops while Guy worked as a carpenter. She married Guy Zessin on May 29, 1922 in Arnold, Nebraska.
