     Claus and Mary Flick, with their three sons, Lewis, Albert and Art moved to Ziebach County in 1921.

     Mr. Flick purchased 480 acres south of Dupree in 1920 and later in 1921 or 1922 - 160 acres.

     Bill Flick lived on the place one year then moved to Iowa. Emil
Flick moved on the place in 1923 to 1927.

     The Flick family moved back to Scotland, South Dakota to their old home place in 1924 and back to Dupree in 1925.

     Lewis attended school in Dupree in 1922 to 1924. Then went to work for Krikac and Avie Geesey Lange General Store. Albert and Art attended school in Dupree also.

     Lewis went to Texas in December, 1928. Albert left soon after. Art married Verna Miller in 1932. Their four daughters were born there. Dawn, Mary, Virginia and Lorna.

     Claus Flicks left Dupree in 1934 and moved to Scotland. The Art Flicks left there in 1941.

     I understand while Claus Flicks lived at Dupree he planted trees
and made a park known as Flick Park.
