From The Wolbach Messenger, Wolbach, Nebraska, Thursday, November 29, 1923, transcribed by Linda Berney:

Paul Jordan Anderson Passes Away –
Laid to Rest in Hillside Cemetery Sunday Afternoon –

Paul Jordan, the youngest child of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Anderson, died at the home of his parents in Logan Township, Greeley county, about eight miles northeast of Wolbach on Saturday, November 24, at 2:15 A.M. at the age of two years six months and seventeen days.

The same Jesus that gave up his life on the cross of Calvary and said "It is finished," has surely said the same words of this precious babe. The mission that he came on earth to fill has been finished, and he has been called home there to await the coming of the loved ones left behind. "It may not be till the coming years, Perhaps in a better land, We'll know the meaning of our tears, Some day we'll understand."

Paul had been sick for a few weeks and was taken to Grand Island for an examination by physicians there and stayed for a week in hopes that he might be cured, but it was of no avail.

He leaves one brother Lawrence, age six years, and a sister, Hazel, age five, besides his parents and relatives.

Funeral services conducted by Rev. R. A. White, were held in the Trinity Lutheran church Sunday afternoon at 2:30 P.M. The Beginners choir sang for the occasion, and Emil Johnson, Adolph Johnson, Glenn Grossart and Alvin Jacobsen acted as pall bearers. Interment was made in Hillside Cemetery.
