George Gordon and his Uncle Charles Gordon arrived in Valley City, Dakota Territory, on April 6, 1882. Failing to find any land to homestead near Valley City, they moved to Sanborn filing on the Northwest ¼ of Section 28, 139-61 , now Mansfield Township. Mr. Gordon was the second man to file in Mansfield Twp. Mr. Henry Mansfield Zellar was the first, for whom Mansfield Twp. was named. Mr. Zellar didn't live in the township too long but moved to Sanborn and opened a blacksmith shop.

The first home was built on this quarter section, later acquiring more land he built a bigger and better farmstead in the center of his land. One quarter was a tree claim.

Ten years after Mr. Gordon settled he sent back to Scotland for a girlhood friend, meeting her in New York where they were married. The Gordons had a family of four: Stewart, who died in infancy; Emelyn (Mrs. Henry Evanson), Vancouver, Washington; Nellie (Mrs. P. M. Kramp), Ypsilanti, North Dakota; W. H. Gordon and Elizabeth, Mrs. A. V. DuVall, New Rockford, North Dakota. Mr. Gordon passed away in 1943. But the land is still owned by W. H. Gordon.

Nellie and P. M. Kramp were married November 5, 1914. They are retired and live in Ypsilanti, North Dakota. They had three daughters: Burnice (Mrs. Kermit Clark); Genevieve (Mrs. Maurice Gullickson); and Marjorie (Mrs. Vernon Whitney).

Goffred Gullickson and his wife Moren with their four children moved to Eckelson Twp. in the spring of 1917 from Walnut Grove, Minnesota. In 1925 they moved to the NEY, of Section 32-140-61 where the home is still. Both Mr. and Mrs. Gullickson have passed away but a son Theodore and his sister Gertrude, live on the farm. They had two other children, Ida (Mrs. Maurice Welsh) who has passed away, and Maurice of Eckelson, who is married to Genieve Kramp, daughter of P.M. Kramp and Nellie Gordon Kramp.
