Henry Hallick, farmer and stock-raiser, Section 20, P. O. Grand Forks, came to Grand Forks County eight years ago and established the second blacksmith shop in the town. For the past four years he has been engaged in agricultural pursuits. Mr. Hallick is a native of Norway, and came to Dakota from Freeborn County, Minn. For a time he was a resident of Wisconsin.

Henry Hallick married Marit (Mary) Kittlesdatter Lampland in Blooming Prairie, Dodge County, Minnesota, on November 26, 1869. Mary was born May 30, 1848 in Norway and died December 23, 1948 in Grand Forks County, North Dakota.

The 1885 Dakota Territory census shows Henry Hallick (age 37, farmer, born in Norway) married to Mary (age 36, born in Norway). Their children were Henry (age 14, born in Wisconsin), Charles (age 13, born in Wisconsin), Clarence (age 9, born in Wisconsin), Lena (age 10, born in Wisconsin), Hilda (age 8, born in Wisconsin), Clara (age 6, born in Dakota Territory), and Mary (age 3, born in Dakota Territory). The family resided in Brenna Township, Grand Forks County.

Centenarian Dies At Home. Mrs. Marit Hallick, over 100 years old, died Thursday night at the farm home of a grandson in Brenna township. Born May 30, 1848, in Norway, Mrs. Hallick came to the United States in March, 1868, at the age of 20. On Nov. 26, 1869, she married Henry Hallick at Blooming Prairie, Minn., and moved to a farm. In 1870, Mrs. Hallick and her husband came to Grand Forks, where they operated a hotel on Kittson ave., near the site of the courthouse, for 25 years. Four years after her husband’s death in 1896, Mrs. Hallick moved to the farm. When Mrs. Hallick became a centenarian last May 30, a special church service was held in her honor at the Evanger Lutheran church. Survivors include 8 children. Funeral arrangements have not been announced. (Grand Forks Herald, Friday, December 24, 1948, Volume 68, Number 41, Page 5)
