Was Stricken Rather Sudden
Andres O. Lande Called to His Last Long Rest Thursday Morning
Was On Streets Day Before
An Attack of Heart Trouble Was Responsible for This Respected Citizen’s Demise
Friends of Andrew O. Lande received a sudden shock last Thursday [January 7, 1915] when it was announced that Mr. Lande had died suddenly. He was taken sick in the morning at nine o’clock and at four he had passed to that great beyond from which no man returneth. Mr. Lande was on the street the day before and seemed to be in excellent health for a man of his age.

For twenty-seven years he has been a resident of Emmet county, and for six years a resident of Estherville. He was born in Norway on the sixth day of October, 1839 and came to America with his wife in 1868. For a few years they lived in Illinois from where they moved to this county. Since arriving in this country Mr. Lande has for the greater part of the time been engaged in farming, only leaving this occupation when he moved to Estherville to live.

There are eight children living, the following six residing in this city: Benjamine Lande, Lewis Lande, Martin Lande, Mrs. A.W. Oleson, Andrew Lande and Mrs. James Walrath. Andres Lande residing in Minneapolis and Ole Lande at Ankony, both of whom with their wives attended the funeral services held last Monday at the Norwegian Lutheran church, the Rev. J.J. Akre officiating.

The remains were laid to rest beside those of his wife in the Norwegian cemetery north of this city. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, January 13, 1915)

The community was shocked last Thursday to learn that Andrew O. Lande, who has lived at or near Estherville for the past Twenty-seven years, had suffered a stroke of paralysis, and after a few hours, during the greater part of which time he was unconscious, had died.

Andrew O. Lande was born in Fjeldberg, Norway, October 6th, 1830 [per gravestone 1839], and with his wife Ingar, came to this country in 1868. They lived for a time in Illinois and then came to this state and for the past twenty-seven years he has been a respected citizen of this community , having resided in this city all these yars with the exception of a few which were spent on a farm just across the line in Minnesota. The deceased’s wife die in 1896 and was buried in the Norwegian Lutheran cemetery, where his remains have now been laid to rest.

Ten children were born to Andrew and Ingar Lande, eight of whom are now living, two having died in infancy. Six of the children were present at their father’s death bed. Of the eight children living, six reside in this city, being Mrs. Jas. Walroth, Mrs. W. Olson and the boys, Ben, Olous, Andrew and Martin. A son, Ole, lives at Ankey, and another, Andrew, at Minneapolis. The deceased has one sister living in this country, residing at Jewell, and one sister and brother in Norway.

Funeral services were held at the house at 1:00 o’clock and from the church at 1:30 o’clock last Monday, Rev. Akre being in charge at each services. Burial was made in the Norwegian Lutheran cemetery.

The bereaved family have the sincere sympathy of many friends. (Estherville Democrat, Estherville, IA, January 13, 1915)
