    Notes 
    • from McHenry County Centennial Book:
      Capt. Pehr and Helena (Sauvrow) Ekstrom
      By Helen Chapman
      Anna taught in a school provided for the education of the children of
      the English ranchers who had settled on the banks of the Mouse River.
      Later she taught In Towner's first brick school house. This building
      was used until the red brick school was built in 1905. The original
      building was then used for apartments and was known as the Rosencrans
      Flats. Anna had some students who later made Towner proud. They were
      Alan Soule and the Strand boys, Olaf and Anton. In 1900 Anna married
      Irvin Cook who had come West from his parental home in Wabasha,
      Minnesota to work in construction along the new rail road. At that
      time it had reached Minot. He homesteaded and acquired other land
      which is the present Cook Ranch northwest of Towner. The Cooks had
      five children, Helen, Hattie, Lytie, Leroy and Pehr Irvin (Pat).
