Clarence Leyendecker came to the Ypsilanti, North Dakota community from Eden Valley, Minnesota. This was in 1942. He farmed in Meadow Lake Township.
In 1945, he married Celine Brisse of Richmond, Minnesota, and they purchased a farm nine miles southeast of Ypsilanti, where they were still residing in 1982, when the Ypsilanti Community Centennial Book was published.
The children of Clarence and Celine were Cheryl and Calvin.
