The Story of Myron Lemke

by Edna Hathorne
Myron Lemke, born on the farm in the town of Plover in 1899, left home when he was about 20 years old. He went west to Montana where he homesteaded for a few years. He was home to see his family three or four times during his lifetime. He was a mail carrier for a few years and later worked in construction work on dams and bridges. He was injured by being run over by a truck at one time and was in the hospital in Salt Lake City.
After he recovered from his injury he went to work for the U.S. Government. He was on Wake Island helping to build an air strip when the Japanese captured the island in December of 1941. He was killed and is buried in the Hawaiian Islands. He was never married and had no children.
