DEATH CLAIMS HENRY HUSTED
PIONEER RESIDENT OF PLYMOUTH COUNTY DIES AFTER A BRIEF ILLNESS
Death claimed Henry Husted, a pioneer resident of Plymouth County, at his
home, 101 Fourth Avenue NW., in this city Friday night at the age of 89
years. He had been in fair health for a man of his years, until a week ago
when he contracted a cold while at work in his garden. His illness rapidly
developed an attack of pneumonia which proved fatal.
Henry Husted was a native of Denmark, Europe, and was born at Ringhoven
November 8, 1842, where he grew to young manhood. He came to America when a
young man and to LeMars in the seventies. He engaged in farming north of
Seney and with the exception of some time spent in South Dakota lived here
He was united in marriage at Sioux Falls, S.D., in 1876, with Miss Isabel
Smith, whose parents were pioneers in Seney vicinity.
Mr. and Mrs. Husted left the farm and came to LeMars twenty years ago to
make their home.
Mr. Husted is survived by his wife and a number of nephews and nieces, some
living in Denmark.
Mr. Husted is was a fine type of citizen, hardworking and conscientious, a
successful farmer. He was pleasant to meet, mindful of his own business and
a liberal contributor to worthy objects in an unostentatious manner. He
will be missed by many neighbors.
The funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the residence, Rev. A. J.
Hansen, of the Marcus Danish church officiating and interment was made in
the cemetery at Seney.
