Iver Vathing, who is engaged in operating the farm in section 9, Sheldon township, formerly owned by his father,
was born in Union township, this county, Nov. 1, 1876, son of Segurd and Gro (Bondahi)
Vathing. He was the ninth born of his parents' ten children and in his boyhood attended school in Sheldon township,
afterwards assisting his father on the home farm until the latter's death. He was only 16 years old when he assumed
its management, and he has since continued to operate it, his mother and sister Susie residing with him since the
father's death in 1904. He has 75 acres of valuable land, which he conducts as a general stock farm, breeding Shorthorn
and Durham cattle, and Poland-China hogs. He is also a stockholder in the Houston Creamery Company and the Farmers'
Telephone Company. His farm is well improved and provided with modern equipment, and by industry and perseverance
he has raised himself to a place among the substantial citizens of his township. He is a member of the Norwegian
Lutheran church, worshipping in the stone church of that denomination in Sheldon township, and in politics is independent.
