Nils Anderson
From the Hoffman Tribune 1938
Another pioneer citizen of this community was summoned on Friday, September 16, when Nils Anderson who came to Grant county 56 years ago and settled in Roseville, died at his home in Hoffman. Mr. Anderson's death occurred at 5 a. m., after an illness of four and one-half months with complications of disease. Mr Anderson was born February 23, 1854, at Lund, Sweden, and at the time of his death was 84 years, 6 months, and 24 days of age. In 1884 he came to the United States. He came directly to Grant county and located on a farm in Roseville township, where he lived until 1929 when he moved to Hoffman. He was married in October, 1892 to Blenda Swenson. Surviving him are his widow, four sons, and one daughter: Nels and Alphild of Hoffman; Ernest, Axel, and Fritz of Roseville. He also leaves six grandchildren, one sister, and one brother in Sweden. One son died in infancy. Funeral services were held on Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 from the home and at 2:00 at the Bethel Lutheran church, Rev. B.G. Holmes officiating. Burial was made in the Bethel cemetery. At the home a trio consisting of the Misses Luverne and Anna Gulbranson and Mildred Berg sang "Nar skall vi alla mottas" and at the church they sang "I am But a Stranger Here" and "When I Shall Read My Title Clear." Mrs. Silas Ellingson played the accompaniment. The pall bearers were Harold Olson, Martin Olson, Herman Podratz, Albert Lindstrom, Morris Nelson, and Alfred Larson.

Emigrated from Malmo, Lund, Sweden in 1882.
