Lee & Daisy McFarland Family

E. L. (Lee) McFarland, son of Mr. and Mrs. E. E. McFarland, an early Harris auctioneer, and Daisy Logan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Logan, Allison Township farmers, were married September 8, 1908.

One daughter, Muriel Kathryn, was born to Lee and Daisy in 1909. Muriel graduated from Harris Consolidated School and in 1932, from the University of South Dakota. She taught school in Harris, and then moved to Minneapolis, where she lived for 40 years. Murielís first husband, Harold Borraem, died in 1960, and in 1966, she married Rev. Charles H. Bergsland. Lee was manager of J. F. Anderson Lumber Company for many years, beginning in the 1920ís, until mid 1940. He also managed the Anderson Lumber Company in Fairmont, Minnesota, during World War II.

Lee and Daisy built their home located at 117 Lawton Avenue in 1930, and sold it to Bob and Beulah Senn in 1969.

Lee worked as bookkeeper for Granstad Lumber for four years and Sennís Co-op Station for several years.

During the early 1950ís for a short time, Lee and Daisy operated a grocery store on Main Street.
Daisy was a faithful Keeping Up Club member from 1922, until her health failed. It was her diligent keeping of club programs which enabled the club to write an accurate history.

Both Lee and Daisy were faithful members of the Harris United Methodist Church.

Lee passed away in 1965, Daisy in 1974, at Country View Manor in Sibley, and Muriel Bergsland in January of 1989, in Sequim, Washington.
