May 22, 1913 Chisago County Press
In the death of John P Ahlstrand, which occurred Wednesday, May 14 at 10 AM this community loses one of its most respected citizens among the early settlers. Mrs. Ahlstrand passed away at his home in Shafer, 3 miles north of that village, having attained the age of 82 years and until about a year ago has been enjoying vigorous health, and his death was due to the general infirmities of old age. The funeral was held from the Ahlstrand home last Saturday at 2 pm, Rev G A Stenborg of Almelund officiating and interment was held at Center City Cemetery.
John Peter Ahlstrand was born in Hult"socken", Sweden, Nov. 20, 1830 and he has attained the age of 82 years, 6 months and 6 days. He emigrated from Sweden to the US in 1870 and came direct to Center City, where he settled on a farm six miles northeast of that village. Clearing a farm was no easy task in those days, but a number of settlers had arrived with that characteristic spirit of determination, which has always been found in Swedish settlers of these parts, they soon set about with hoe, grub and ax and it was no long before the beautiful home and farms that were established. John Ahlstrand was one of these sturdy settlers and always possessed a firm and abiding faith in his creator. On his arrival to this community he joined the Chisago Lake congregation of which he has ever since been a member. He was married in Sweden in 1858 and is survived by an aged widow and six children, two boys and two girls. Two of the children are dead. The two sons Frank and August are now living on the old Ahlstrand homestead together with their mother, who is over 80 years old. The Press extends sympathy to the Ahlstrand family in their bereavement.
