Theodore H. Peterson, who is operating the old homestead farm of his parents, containing 200 acres in section
33, Sheldon township, was born on this farm, Jan. 7, 1876, son of Halvor and Julia
(Quolin) Peterson. His education was acquired in district school No. 8, this township, while he learned agriculture
on the home farm, assisting his father until the latter's death. For one season after he worked out, continuing
to reside at home. Then he rented out the farm and worked for others for some eight or nine years, during which
time, however, he proved a claim in Ward county, N. D. After selling his interest there he returned to Houston
county and for four years continued to rent out his land. At the end of that time he took up his residence on the
old homestead, where, except for one year, he has since remained, engaged in general farming. His land is fertile
and the farm is well improved as to buildings. Mr. Peterson is also a stockholder in the Hauge Ridge Telephone
Company, and served for one year as its president. In politics he is a Prohibitionist, but though leading a Christian
life is not a member of any church.
