John J. & Susan Myrland Lansworth had 7 daughters and a son, John, who died in infancy.  They were married Sept. 25, 1865 and made their home on a farm in Primrose, Dane Co., Wis.  In 1876 John Lansworth was awarded his 160 acres of land and moved to Dorchester (Clark Co., Wis.).  He later moved to Ogema (I don't know the exact date).

  1. Ida Josephine (Lansworth)  Sorenson.  Married Martin Ernest Sorenson.  Lived in both Dorchester and Abbotsford.  Martin was sometimes known as Ernest Martin or "E.M.".  I believe he was a brother to Hans and Andrew, who owned the butcher shop, as I was told he worked there also.

  2. Elizabeth Bertha (Lansworth) Benson.  Married Benjamin Gustav Benson.  Moved to Tacoma, Washington where Benjamin was in the grocery business.

  3. Anna Leona (Lansworth) Stanley.  Married Cleveland Baker Stanley.  Lived in both New London and Clintonville.  CB. was (I think) Supt. of Schools in one of the districts.  Anna became a teacher, writer and reporter for the Clintonville newspaper.

  5. Louella Amelia (Lansworth) Johnson.  Married Ole J. Johnson.

  7. Alma Rozella (Lansworth) Fryk.  Married Anton Theodore Fryk.  Lived in Jump River.  Anton Fryk was a farmer.

  8. Calla Myrl (Lansworth) Oden.  Married Charles Oden of Ogema.  Eventually settled in Minnapolis, Minn., as Charles worked for the railroad and was transferred there.
