At his home in High Lake township, March 7th, 1885, L. L. Johnson, aged about 33 years, of heart disease.
The deceased had suffered for a number of years with this most terrible malady which at last has done its fatal work. Mr. Johnson was one of the pioneers of the county and was highly respected by a large circle of friends and neighbors. He leaves a wife and two children, an aged father and mother who depended on him for their comfort and care, to mourn his departure.
L. L. was a son of Lars Johanneson Moen (Johnson) and Martha Andersdaughter Graue (Johnson) who were born in Norway. His wife, Kari, was a daughter of Peter Nielsen Brugjeld and his wife Gjertrud, both born in Norway.
L. L. and Kari Johnson had five children: Martha, Peter L., John L., Gertina, and Louisa. After L. L. died, Kari married a widower, J. C. Molison.
