Peterson, P. N.
P. [Peter] N. Peterson of High Lake township died early Wednesday morning [24 Oct 1917] of last week. He had not been well for some time, but did not think it serious, but Saturday he was taken worse and called medical aid and everything done for him that possibly could be done. But it was too late. His death message had come. He was sixty-nine, seven months and thirteen days old [born 29 Mar 1848 on the Brugjeld farm at Tjugum, Leikanger parish, Sogn and Fjordane County in Norway to Peder Nielsen Brugjeld and Gjertrud Olsdatter Thorsnes Grufjeld.] He leaves to mourn his death a wife, four sons and one daughter, a brother Ole B. Peterson, and a sister Mrs. John K. Johnson, all residing here. The funeral was held Saturday at the East [Lutheran] church, Rev. T. J. Severson having charge of the funeral. Burial was in High Lake cemetery. We extend sympathy to the bereaved ones.
