After getting his education and growing to manhood he was united in marriage to Anna Kock in 1864 and to this union were born ten children. In 1881 this family came to America to establish a new home in Cedar Falls. They spent the remainder of their lives in the vicinity of Fredsville.
After the death of his wife in 1906 Mr. Syndergaard lived with his son, N. C. Syndergaard of Fredsville. Seven children and his wife preceded him in death, leaving two daughters, Mrs. C. Wolff and Mrs. C. H. Syndergaard, and one son, N. C. Syndergaard, to mourn his death. Besides these there are nineteen grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends.
