Ove J. Barke, Roland Iowa
This respected citizen recently celebrated his 90th birthday having been born in Osterem, Saude i Ryfylke, Norway, November 13, 1821. With his family he emigrated to this country in May 1872, coming directly to Roland where he has since made his home. He lived for many years on a farm, three and a half miles southeast of town, but sold it eleven years ago and moved to Roland where he is still living. He is a man, whom no one would judge to be more than sixty years of age, as he is robust and walks with an ease and lightness that few many years his junior are able to do. He is a member of Bergen congregation, having been one of the charter members of the same. His numerous friends hope that he may continue to enjoy good health the years that he may have to live. The Record extends its congratulations to him upon his ninetieth birthday.
