John E Lind. The country of Sweden has done much toward giving to America a population of vigorous ad physically well developed men and women, having also the attributes of high character, honesty and uprightness. To the venturesome, brave and indomitable spirits who, not being content to pass their lives where opportunities and energy are hampered by caste or lass, have sought a new field for their further development and improvement, do we owe the flourishing condition of this grand and great country today. The subject of this sketch, John E Lind, now located on Sec 27, Yell township has for twenty-two years been a resident of Boone county, where he has been engaged in the important pursuits of agriculture. He was born in Sweden, April 16, 1852, and is a son of Erick and Kattrina Lind. His father was a tailor by trade and both he and his wife lived and died in Sweden. John E Lind was the only one of the family that came to America. He first settled in Moingona, this county, and there he engaged in coal mining. As the result of his incessant and well directed labors at the end of nine years he had acquired considerable money which he invested in his farm whereon he has since lived.
Our subject married Miss Josephine Johnson of Sweden. Their home was blessed with seven children: Johanna, Conrad, Jennie, George, Edward, Robert and Leonard. Both Mr Lind and his wife are members of the Swedish church of Ogden. In politics he supports the men and measures of the Republican party. Mr Lind through industry, honesty, sobriety and earnest effort has acquired for himself and family a comfortable home, where they are the recipients of all the advantages afforded to citizens of America, and never had he had occasion to regret crossing the briny deep to the new world. It is with pleasure that we present to our readers the name of John E Lind as a representative citizen of Boone county.
