Dayton Review
May 10, 1894

Died: In Moline, Illinois, May 4th, 1894, Mrs. Anna Maria Swanson, aged 81 years, 3 months and 13 days.

Mrs. Swanson was born in Krockelt [Kroxhult], Kalmar Län, Sweden, Jan. 21, 1813. Was married to Olaus Swanson in Sweden and with him came to America in 1854, settling in Henry county, Ill. There they made their home for eleven years and in 1865 removed to Iowa. She joined the Lutheran church in Swede Bend in 1866 and three years later, in 1869, united with the church in Dayton, of which she was a consistent member until the time of her death.

She had long been a sufferer and three weeks ago she was taken to Moline in hope of obtaining relief, but in vain Death claimed her, and she went to her long rest May 4th. She was brought back to her home in Dayton and buried from the Lutheran church Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock, Rev. Christenson conducting the funeral services. Her aged husband and three children are left to mourn the loss of wife and mother.
