Park Region Echo, October 8, 1964

Albert Englund was born in Carlos, Minnesota, Jan 17, 1888, the son of Louis and Annie Englund. He was baptized at Carlos, Minn., and grew to manhood in that community.
On April 15, 1912 he was united in marriage to Bessie Larson. Since their marriage they have farmed in the Nelson community. Three children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Englund, one son Orville, who served in W.W. 2 and died Jan 9, 1951.
Mr. Englund died at the Douglas County Hospital Saturday, Sept. 26, 1964 at the age of 76 years.
Surviving are his wife, Bessie; two children, Emil at home; Lucille (Mrs. Delmore Braaten) of Kensington, one sister Augusta Larson of Villard, and one grandson.

(Albert's sister Augusta Englund Larson was married to Alfred Larson, son of Bolette Larsen and Hans Larsen.)

He was preceded in death by his parents, one son, four brothers and three sisters.
Funeral services were held Wednesday, Sept 30, 1964 at 2 pm from Our Saviour's Lutheran Church in Nelson, Rev. James Schwarz of Alexandria officiating.
Interment was in the Nelson Cemetery.
Pallbearers were Lester Jensen, O. A. Rassat, Raymond O'Brien, Marvin Eddy, Carl Randin and Lloyd Sather.
Mrs. Ramon Nelson and Mrs. Wayne Whiting accompanied by Mrs. Reuben Bolin sang "I Know of a Sleep in Jesus Name."

Here is Albert Englund in 1895 on the census with his family, age 7, NOT 72, as was erroneously typed.

The fact that Albert Englund was born in Minnesota supports my belief that a transcription or typing error was made for this data. The family moved from Sweden in a five year range between the births of Erick and Augusta, so between 1882 and 1887.
