Thomas & Geraldine Everson (Tom & Gerry) farm at Pine Knob, Route 1, Soldiers Grove WI. The Everson's bought the old "Hermanson" farm from Gullord and Ethel Reseland in 1959. Ethel's maiden name was Hermanson. The farm was 88 acres of rolling hills and woodland. Tom & Gerry raised 5 children there: Larry, Bob, Wanda Julie & Tony. Tom ran cattle and milk trucks so alot of the farm work was down by Gerry and the kids. There was a house, a barn, tobacco shed, granary and garage on the land. The Everson's later added a pig barn and a pole shed. Tobacco growing was included in the many crops to thrive in the rich soil atop a Pine Knob hill at rural Soldiers Grove. Tom passed away in 1997 and Gerry sold the farm to the Brandts from Stoughton in 1998.
