From Holland to Otter Tail County


Peter Hoogveld, a married man with 10 children, was living in Otter Tail County, Minnesota, when he declared his intention to become a U.S. citizen on September 16, 1941. The denim overalls he wears in the photo reflect his occupation. His older daughters had relocated to distant Hollywood and Catalina Island, California.
