Death: Apr. 30, 1935

Ole A. Anderson pioneer settler in Grant county, who died at his home in Lake Mary township April 30 from a stroke, at the age of 79 years, was born October 16, 1855 in Gagnef, Difarne, Sweden. He grew to manhood there and was married in 1877 to Britta Westlund and came to America the following year and took up a homestead near Hoffman. He lived there until 1905 when the family moved to Douglas county and located on a farm near Lobster Lake. That was the family home until 1918, when Mr. Anderson retired from farming and bought a few acres on Lake Mary where he built a home and lived there until his death.

Mr. Anderson was a carpenter and worked at that trade until the time when he retired from active life.

Fifteen children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Anderson, five of whom preceded him in death: Andrew, Esther, Axel, Elmer and Robert. Those who are left to mourn a kind and loving father and husband are his aged wife and (Anna) Mrs. M. E. Magnuson of LaGrand township, (Tillie) Mrs. E. J. Knapton of White Fish, Montana, (Ida) Mrs. G. Barclay of Glenwood, (Ella) Mrs. Glen Hansen of Minneapolis, Fredolph and Walter of Minneapolis, Alfred of Alexandria, Emil, Oscar and Amelia at home. Twenty-three grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren are also left to mourn.

Funeral services were held Saturday at his home in Lake Mary. Pallbearers were five sons of the deceased and a cousin, Emil Swedberg, of Hoffman.
(Park Region Echo, May 9, 1935)
