"In no way can I convey entirely the excitement and enthusiasm of the original idea and purchase of land and also the extreme poverty and stressful times of the early years. At one point the mortgage was due and there was no money to pay Memorus Bruffey.  The 63 Ranch exists today because he did not foreclose."     SANDRA CHRISTENSEN

 

 

 

In 1929, Elmer and Paul Christensen, and their sister, Jo Francis, bought 420 acres from Memorus Bruffey, whose family homesteaded Montana land in 1890.
