Emil Julius Larson was born in Fillmore Co., MN February 20, 1873. In 1879 he moved with his people to the homestead north of Lake Preston. He attended Augustana College in Canton for two years, and on April 1, 1898 was united in marriage with Miss Bertha Nelson of Hetland. To this union seven children were born. Four died in infancy.

Following his marriage in 1898 he farmed for three years one mile south of Arlington. In 1901 he started in business as a blacksmith in which he continued for thirty-nine years.
