Funeral Services for Christ Bahnsen Held Here Mon. Afternoon

Christopher Andreas Bahnsen, a resident of Crawford county for many years, passed away Friday, December 21, at the age of 71 years, 10 months and 15 days, after an illness of but a few days' duration. Funeral services were held at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Albert Minert, Monday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock with Rev. Wm. Freese, pastor of the Lutheran church officiating. Interment was made in the Morgan township cemetery.

Mr. Bahnsen was born Feb. 6, 1857 in Schleswig, Holsein, Germany, and came to America when a young man, settling in Crawford county. He was united in marriage June 17, 1883, to Miss Olderike Jensen, who preceded him in death four years ago. To this union were born nine children, all of whom are living.

"Grandpa" Bahnsen, as he was generally known to his many friends, was one of Crawford county's successful farmers who retired several years before the death of his wife and moved into Denison. Since the death of his wife he has made his home a greater part of the time with Mr. and Mrs. Albert Mineri.

He is survived by his children, Julia, Mrs. Christ Willbeck of Hartington, Neb; Anna, Mrs. Jens Andersen, of Gary, Minn; Rosa, Mrs. Wm. Peters of Buck Grove; Peter C., of Dow City; Emma, Mrs. Peter Christiansen of Bloomfield, Neb., John of Dow City; Minnie, Mrs. Albert Minert; Amanda, Mrs. Earl Wallace and Christ of Galt.
