John Leraas was born in Norway, February 18, 1863 and came with his family to near Hillsboro in 1886. In about 1888 he homesteaded on a quarter of land south east of Finley, now known as the Seim farm. In 1888, Martha Orvik left Norway for Dakota and she and John were married January 10, 1890. In the next several years more land was purchased one and one half miles east of Finley and in the year 1910 John built an eight room house and a barn here, now the Morris Shogren farm. They moved to Homeland, California where Mrs. Leraas died in 1940 and Mr. Leraas in 1947. They had six children: Levi, Albert, Arthur, Elmer and Ellert all deceased. Also Clare:, ‎(Mrs. Ben Howe)‎ of Hemet, California, the only survivor of this family.
