John A. Saxon Passes Away.
The people of Worthington were shocked on Sunday morning to learn of the
sudden death of one of the earliest pioneers of Nobles county, John Saxon,
who died after an illness of only a couple of days of peritonitis.
Mr. Saxon was taken suddenly ill last Friday night with what the
physicians though was an obstruction of the bowels. It was found necessary
to operate and Dr. Comstock, of St. Paul, one of the leading surgeons of the
northwest was called and performed the operation. A curved piece of glass
about an inch long was discovered in the intestines, which had cut them.
Just where and when Mr. Saxon swallowed it will always remain a mystery. Up
until a half hour before his death he seemed to be getting along nicely, but
the ultimate end was feared by the physicians.
Mr. Saxon was born in Osterdotland, Sweden, Nov. 18, 1845, and when a
mere lad came to America with his parents, one brother and two sisters. In
the year of 1852 they settled near Rock Island, Illinois, but within a short
time removed to Fulton, Illinois, where he resided until the opening of the
Civil War when he entered the service of the government. At the close of the
war he returned to Fulton and resided there until 1870, when he moved to
Alamaee county, Iowa.
In 1872 he came to Nobles county and settled on a homestead in section
30, Lorain township, where he resided until a couple of years ago, when he
came to Worthington. In 1881 he was united in marriage to Martha Johnson,
who together with seven children survive to mourn his loss -- Mrs. Alma
Christenson, Miss Lillian, Mrs. Una Christenson, George, Violet, Ethel and
Earl, all residents of this vicinity. His only surviving sister, Mrs.
Christene Harrison, with her husband, of Fulton, Illinois were in attendance
at the funeral.
For several years Mr. Saxon served as school director in the district in
which he lived in Indian Lake township and was road overseer for a number of
years. For three years he was postmaster of the Saxon postoffice situated on
his farm. It was discontinued upon the advent of the rural delivery.
Funeral services were held at the house in this city at twelve o'clock
Wednesday and at the Baptist church in Indian Lake at 2:30, and the remains
interred in the cemetery at that place. The sermons were preached by Rev.
Dr. Peterson, of Minneapolis, who with Mr. Saxon as boys romped the deck of
the same vessel for ten weeks during the trip across the Atlantic. They came
from the same section in Sweden.
