Set Rites for Vineland Man

Martin Hanstad Funeral Will Be Sunday at Sand Hill Church

Funeral services will be held Sunday for Martin Hanstad, 72, pioneer resident of the Vineland community, who died at a Crookston hospital Wednesday morning. Mr. Hanstad had been in failing health the past year and had been seriously ill for two weeks before his death.

The funeral rites will be at 1:30 p.m. at the Hans Berg homestead, now occupied by the Helmer Bangen family, and at two p.m. at the Sand Hill church, with the Rev. Louis Olson officiating. Six grand-nephews will be pallbearers. They are: Harry and Reuben Thompson, Howard Hanstad, Alvin Berg, Loren and Sidney Stortroen.

Mr. Hanstad was born September 9, 1867 in Vestre Toten, Norway, and came to the United States in 1887, settling in Vineland township, where he had since lived. He was never married.

He is survived by 14 nephews and 15 nieces. The body will lie in state Saturday afternoon at the Stenshoel Funeral Home.
