Laura May Anderson met Tom Dexter at a dance in Ward. They were married September 8, 1914 in
Flandreau, South Dakota. After getting married they lived with Ike and Liz Dexter. They moved and farmed a 1/4 section near Ward where the rest of the children were born. Then it was on to the Y.P. place for a year and they farmed Y.P.'s quarter and the Tree claim. They moved into Ward and continued to farm the above acreage. Tom could have bought a house or a barn for 500$. He choose the barn. He dug a basement on the Tree claim and proceeded to convert the barn into a house. They lived out their lives on that farm. (bio by: Nancy Painthorse Salisbury)
