ANDREW ENGSTROM DIES AT HIS HOME ON MCDOWELL CR.
Andrew Engstrom, well known farmer living on McDowell creek, died at his home Tuesday morning [3 a.m. June 10]. He was born in Sweden Nov. 25, 1873. There he was educated in the public schools, and confirmed and united with the Swedish Lutheran church. In the year 1893 he left his homeland and turned his attention westward toward the United States, arriving at New York on Nov. 25th, his 20th birthday. Again traveling westward, he finally located on McDowell creek south of Manhattan.
In the year 1902 he was united in marriage to Myrtle Clark, the two making their home in the vicinity of Dwight. To this union five children were born: Mrs. Opal Hoch, Alta Vista; Mrs. Dorothy Smith, Topeka; and Chas. A., John and Florence of Dwight.
Mr. Engstrom will be remembered by a host of friends as an industrious man, being efficient in carpentry stone masonry and farming, and without question the touch of his hand and mind has been instrumental in making this a better community to live in.
He leaves to mourn his loss: his wife and five children and seven grandchildren; one sister, Mrs. S. D. Olsen of Dwight; two half-brothers and four half-sisters in Sweden, besides many other relatives and friends.
Funeral services were held from the Presbyterian church in Dwight Tuesday afternoon [June 11, 1935], conducted by Rev. H. W. Apel, and interment was made in the Welcome cemetery.
