Birth: Aug. 18, 1841, Sweden

Transcribed from The Galveston Daily News (a newspaper published in Galveston County, Texas) dated Friday, the 9th of February of 1894


El Campo, Tex. Feb. 7 --

The remains of Jonas Adling, who died in Victoria yesterday, were buried here this afternoon. Last summer sitting by an open window on a railway train, he contracted a severe cold in his head, from which he never recovered. He was born in Sweden in 1842. He was the founder and first settler of Gothenberg, Nebraska and remained there a prosperous merchant until a little over two years ago when he was gone to Texas to investigate what inducements there would be for his countrymen here. He decided upon El Campo, and has since been identified with the colonization of this place, the largest Swedish settlement in Texas. He leaves a widow and three children.
