Below: The Floyd Twedt Family. Back: Grace (Tendall `35), Floyd `32, Arlen `62. Front: Nancy `71, Dennis `64, and John `66. They lived one mile east, two miles north, and a quarter east on the north side of the road. Arlen, `62, became very interested in the history of the Norwegians in Iowa and authored a couple books on the subject. John became one of the famous "Twedt,Twedt, Toot Toot" track team at Nevada High School. In many of the early pictures of Milford, Floyd is one of the few that is easily recognized because of his height and blond hair. Both Arlen and John were Profs at DMACC
