Individual Note:
The Story -
        Elton was born on the 14th of February, 1928, to Frederick Arthur and Beatrice Isabel (Dilts) Green, at the family's home in White Bear Lake, Ramsey Co. MN. It must have been an extra special day to Fred and Bea, to have their first child born on Valentine's Day
        In 1931, Fred, Bea, and children Elton, Lloyd, and Anna May, moved to Remer, and took up farming. Why the family moved to Remer is "unknown". Perhaps the depression had something to do with it, as there might not have been any jobs available in the "big city". Land was obtained, and a cabin built (link to cabin photo) on the east side of Little Sand Lake, which was about four miles north of Remer.
        Back then, and in some cases yet today, farming was more of a way of "existing", rather than an "occupation". The family grew what they could in their garden, kept some cattle for meat and milk, and did some hunting and fishing. Any extra milk was taken to town and sold at the creamery. After a few years, Fred and Bea were tired of just "existing", as they took the opportunity of "greener pastures" elsewhere. Some would say they were part Gypsy. Once they were on the move again, their wandering took them back to White Bear Lake, Minnesota; Globe, Arizona; and Mexico, before finally settling down again "permanantly" in Minnesota in the 1940's.
        Fred's natural talents, and "learn on the go" farming skills, developed into mechanical skills. With the advent of Henry Fords $500 dollar cars, and World War II in the horizon, Fred's talents came in handy. He managed to find jobs in Arizona and Mexico as a civilian, helping Uncle Sam in the war effort.
        The 1940's found the Fred Green family back in Remer. Once again, I'm not sure of the "lure", but farming was the calling again. After working for "Uncle", Fred probably wanted to be his "own boss " This time, land was obtained in a new location, close to Big Sand Lake, about two miles west of Remer. Another little cabin was built, along what is now refered to as the "Skunk Road". Perhaps it was Bea and the evolving of the "Women's Sufferage" movement, or perhaps Bea just "plain suffered" enough, as the family soon moved down the road a little ways, into an actual "house". Bea didn't move into a fairy tale "dream house" however, as I heard the story of Bea naming the wood heating barrel stove, "The Black Bastard". Seems the stove pipe decided to fall apart wilst many loaves of fresh baked bread were setting out to cool.
        Elton, our main character, was growing up fast. Even today, Remer has a hard time "holding" the attentions of many a young man. To "See the World", or Stare at the "ass end" of a cow for life ....... It wasn't a hard choice for Elton to "move on". Join the Army, and get a free ride out of town, was the plan. Elton, and his little brother Lloyd, a.k.a. as "Skee", were gone quicker than a Minnesota summer. Elton and Skee spent time together in Boot Camp, and then the Army sent them their separate ways. Elton was off to Fort Brag, Fayetteville, North Carolina.
        Elton's interest in Remer were not entirely forgotten, as he left a pretty little girl behind. Violet Hicks was her name. Elton was taking "no chances" on those "Southern Girls", so he asked Vi for her hand in marriage before leaving Remer. Violet said yes..... She wanted a "man of the world " and adventure ..... not playing second fiddle to some "farmer Brown" in Remer. Vi was soon on a train with her girlfriend, and maid of honor, to wed the newly settled Elton in North Carolina. (link to marriage certificate) A visit to a little chapel was soon arranged upon Vi's arrival, and Elton and Vi were "Man and Wife". They soon were established, and set up in their very own trailer-house. (link to trailer photo) Taj Mah Hall it wasn't, but it was a cozy start, to over 50 years of marriage.

Note for:   Hattie L. Dilts,   ABT 1882 -          Index

Individual Note:
     I will wait for the information I am hoping to get
from the Harrowby/Russell, Manitoba area. Maybe I'll have to make
another trip. I seem to get the most information when I go and look for
myself. My cousin in Langenburg has told me that her mother told her
that Hattie was at one time married to William Eli Rice. She left him
after ten years of marriage. William McVey apparently left her because
she was unfaithful. (William McVey later married Gertrude Rice. She was
Vern Taylor's great Grandmother). Lawrence Rice of Millwood, Manitoba, a
nephew of William Eli Rice, told me on the phone last weekend that he
knew her as Hattie Black.
