In Response To: Ole Jacob Kristiansen Morterud: Akron (Garth Ulrich)

Akron Register Tribune --- Akron, Iowa
Thursday, November 14, 1907

MORTERUD At his home, five miles west of Akron, in Sioux Valley township, Union county, S. D., Monday afternoon, November 10, 1907, Ole J. Morterud, of apoplexy, aged 58 years, 10 months and 16 days. This death came as a great shock to his family and friends, his previous health having been good and his last illness of but brief duration.

Ole J. Morterud was born in Varden, Norway, December 15, 1848, and there married Johana Karine, who still survives him. They came to this country twenty-five years ago, and after living about six years at Worthington, Minn., came to Sioux valley township, which has since been the family home. Of the nine children born to them,
four are living: William and Henry, at home; Chris, who has been managing a large clothing store at Topeka, Kansas, and Mrs. Gus Moline, of Sioux City, the two latter arriving here yesterday. He lived an upright, industrious life, beloved by his family and highly respected by all who knew him. The bereaved family has the sympathy of the community. Funeral services will be held tomorrow (Friday) afternoon in the Brule township, S. D., Norwegian Lutheran church, of which deceased was a member. Interment was made in the cemetery there.
