Mrs. Christopherson Dead.
Martha Christopherson, wife of Olous Christopherson, of Lien, died on Thursday, Jan. 16th, at the age of 66 years. She was the mother of thirteen children, six boys and seven girls, eleven of whom are living.
Mrs. Christopherson came over from Norway in 1869, settling in Steele county, this state. Ten years later she moved with her husband and settled in this county. During the past four months her life has been despaired of. She suffered from cancer on the liver for the relief of which the best medical skill could do nothing.
The children are all grown up, four of them residing in this county, viz: Gustaf, Christ, and Ole Christopherson and Mrs. Edward Huset. Of the seven remaining children, four live in North Dakota, one in Montana, one in Oregon and one in Otter Tail county, this state.
The funeral was held Tuesday, Rev. G. Erdahl performing the last sad rites, the remains being interred in the town of Lien cemetery.
