Died in Norway.
On Tuesday of last week J. C. Tarvestad received a cablegram from Norway announcing the death of his father, Lars C. Tarvestad, at Haugesund. Mr Tarvestad was in poor health the greater part of last winter and his physician suggested that a change of climate might be beneficial. In consequence he arranged a trip to the place of his birth. After arriving there he became worse, so bad in fact that he was unable to travel, and physicians assured him that nothing could be done for him. He was then confined to the house and a coincidence in his death is that it occurred in the room that he occupied as a small boy
Mr Tarvestad was born in 1829 and in 1850 came to America. He stopped first at Leland, Ill., where he was married. After a short residence there he came to Iowa and settled near Highlandville, in this county, remaining there for a number of years and finally moving to Fillmore Co., Minn., where he has since resided. Mr. Tarvestad’s wife died six years ago last spring, and he is survived by eight children—Mrs. O. L. Tollefson and Mrs. Geo. Hellickson, of Mabel, Mrs. M. T. Tollefson, of Lanesboro, Chris Tarvestad, of Hendrum, Lewis Tarvestad, of Leeds, N. D., John Tarvestad, of Keystone, Iowa, Mrs. P. Johnson, of Wisconsin, and J. C. Tarvestad, of this city.
Transcriber’s Note: Find Grave shows he is buried in Newburg Methodist Church Cemetery in Newburg, MN and that he was born Dec. 30, 1829 and died Oct. 1, 1901.
