      "Mr. and Mrs. Strohmeier's daughter, Mrs. Lawson Clark, living now at 819 North Washington Street, Aberdeen, keeps busy as a member of several organizations, and also builds the most beautiful trinkets for sale a person could wish to see. Mr. Clark still owns his old home farm near Glynden, Minnesota, just east of Moorhead. He is a very well known steam engineer at a number of steam reunions in North and South Dakota and Minnesota and probably Nebraska. In late 1969 he was given special recognition as a steam engineer by the Steam Engineering and Locomotive Department of New York City."
