In the summer of 1888, two young people were seen walking on the road north of Lake Benton. They were Ole Andersen and Sine Moller who had come from Dwight, Illinois and were on their way to the Cornelsen home. Later it was learned that they came form Langetved, Skrave Sogn, Sonder jylland, Denmark. In the early years of the Diamond Lake congregation it ws costomary to celebrate both the Danish Fest, June 5th, and the 4th of July Festival. They entertained themselves with games, and dancing, and at these celebrations it was Ole Andersen and Johannes Cornelsen, who played the violins for the occasion. In the fall of the same year, Ole Andersen and Sine Moller were married and then made their home on a farm in Drammen township.
