Birth*Edward (Ed) John Gronewold was born on 10 July 1890 at Strawn, Livingston Co, IL, United StatesB
Note*He and George Gronewold were born in Strawn, IL and moved to Rockwell City, IA with their folks and later, when their parents moved to Lewisville, they went to school in town. As they got older and it was time to find an outside job, they headed west to Washington to their older brother's, John Crown. John got them jobs working for the railroad building a new line in the mountains of Idaho near St Regis and St Marie's. They lived in a tent camp in the mountains, next to a river and the railroad. A travelling man brought a bear that would box to the camp. He would pay a cash prize to anyone that could last so many rounds with the bear. Ed and George thought they could beat the bear, but they were wrong and the bear got the best of them. They had pitched their tents right along the edge of the river. The tents had wooden floors and one night they woke up because the floor and their cots were rocking. The water was almost up to the top of their cots. There had been a storm further up in the mountains and the water was coming down the canyon fast. They just got out of the tents and the tents were washed away. They barely made it to high ground. Upon their return to Minnesota, Ed and George began farming.
