Carl Anderson
Pioneer of This County, Died Last Thursday
Carl Anderson was born February 10, 1858, in Gorabin, Elgo, Warmeland Sweden. He received Christian baptism and was later confirmed in the Lutheran faith.

When his older brother, Nels, came back to Sweden for a visit in 1881, Carl came to America with him, settling in Emmet County, Iowa. With them came also Miss Anna Johnson, to whom he was engaged and to whom he was married in Emmet county on the 23rd of March that same year. They could thus have celebrated their golden wedding four years ago.

Mr. and Mrs. Anderson joined the Estherville Lutheran church soon after coming here, and they have faithfully supported the congregation through all these years.

Mr. Anderson bought the farm on which he has made his home for 54 years shortly after coming to this country. By diligent application and good management he built up his farm and added to his holdings in town and country properties. We are mourning today the passing of one of those sturdy sons of Sweden who have contributed so much to the building up of our country and our communities.

As a man of unquestioned integrity he has won the respect and esteem of neighbors and acquaintances through out the county. The ideals which was impressed upon him in his boyhood home of Sweden have been the guiding principles in all his conduct and dealings through life.

Mr. Anderson has suffered for several years from Asthma, and shown signs of a weakening constitution the last year. He became seriously ill last week and passed away Thursday at 9 p.m. after two days illness with complications of kidney and gland troubles. He has then reached the age of 77 years and 18 days. Mr. Anderson leaves to mourn the departure of a kind husband and a loving father, his wife, one son, Gust Anderson of Estherville; three daughters, Mrs. Henry Hoganson and Mrs. George Bartleman of Estherville and Mrs. Ralph Smith of Fairmont, Minn.; also 16 grandchildren and one great grand-daughter. A son, Augustine, died when only two years of age.

The funeral was held Monday at one-thirty at the farm home and two-thirty at the Estherville Lutheran church. The services were in charge of Rev. L.A. Mathre and Rev. Peder Nordsletten. A quartette consisting of Theo. Myhre, Jennie Handeland, Ida Valen and Everett Shaw sang three sons and Mrs. George Robinson played the funeral march.

The pall bearers were Alfred Brunsvold, Ole Lilland, Joe Timmons, E.E. Crumb, Alfred Anderson and I.J. Robinson. The interment was made in the family plot in the Norwegian Lutheran cemetery. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, March 6, 1935)
