Anna Knuth was born Nov. 1, 1867, in Farmersburg township, the daughter of Carl and Ernestine Mandelkow. She was baptized and confirmed by Rev. Seifert in the Lutheran church at Clayton Center and on March 20, 1891, she was united in marriage to Wm. C. Knuth, by her pastor, the Rev. Mr. Seifert. They resided in Clayton Center for five years, when they moved to a farm in Farmersburg township, where they lived for ten years, after which they moved to St. Olaf, where she lived at the time of her death. Her husband preceded her in death May 16th, 1925.

Eight children were born to this union, namely: Arthur and William of St. Olaf; Edmund (deceased); Mrs. Aug. Kirsth of Clinton; Mrs. Jake Steen of Elkader; Ruby (deceased); Mrs. Norbert Nieland of Guttenberg; and Pearl (deceased). One sister, Mrs. Wm. Drahlmeier of Farmersburg and seven grandchildren also survive.

A large crowd attended. Out of town people who attended were: E. J. Knuth of Austin, Minn.; Mr. and Mrs. Maurice Sullivan of West Union. Mrs. Knuth was a good hearty woman, always ready to help in time of need and as such she will be missed by the children, relatives and neighbors. She was a member of the St. Olaf Ladies Aid.
