Mike Terska was one of those young guests coming to the homestead on Pelican Lake to picnic and fish.  Taking a liking to Helia, he asked for her hand in marriage.  She moved away from the homestead to Mike’s family farm at Lindon Grove about 20 miles south.  Mike and Helia had 2 children, Delores and LeRoy.

The workshop was destroyed by fire along with a large launch under construction, a new marine engine and all of Thomas’s tools.  Thomas now ailing offered the homestead on Pelican Lake to Mike and Helia.  They began making improvements to the farm and because of an increasing demand for a place to stay instead of putting guests up in the milk house, barn, etc. they turned the trading post into a duplex cabin.
