History of The Elkhorn Valley 
Page 520

Andrew Bowman, of Logan township, came to Dodge County, in 1865, in
company with his mother, who homesteaded eighty acres, and he went
to improving the same.  A log house fourteen feet square was built,
which however did not serve very long, as it burned, after which he
and his mother had to live in a sod house, 12x14 feet, for about
one year, when the water drove them out, after which a fame house
was provided. As years went by, our subject purchased more land,
and became better situated financially. Concerning his earlier life
it may be said that our subject was born in Sweden in 1849, his
parents were Andrew and Carrie Bowman, whose five children were:
Martin, Mary, Carrie, Anna and Andrew. Our subjects father died in
Sweden in 1847, and in 1864, he accompanied his mother to this
country. They came from New York, to Omaha, where he worked on the
railroad about one year. His mother took a homestead, and had to
pay every cent she had to secure it. They had to live in any way,
until times brightened up.  They did not always have enough to eat,
or enough to wear, in order to be comfortable.  In 1878 this self-
sacrificing woman, laid down the burdens of life, aged sixty-five
years. Our subject was united in marriage in 1873, to Miss Margaret
Hanson, the daughter of Hans and Carrie Hanson, whose four children
were Anna, Margaret, Andrew and Oliver. To our subject and his wife
were born five children in the following order: Andrew, August 14,
1874; Tura, January 17, 1876; Albert, September 14, 1879; Sadie,
April 1, 1883; Arthur, December 18, 1890. Politically, the man of
whom we write this notice, is a supporter of the Republican party,
and in church matters is a Lutheran.

The Swaburg and Uehling communities suffered the loss of an old
pioneer settler in the passing hence of Mrs. Margret Bowman on

June 10 1909

Aged Pioneer Called Home

Mrs. Justine Dahl, one of the early pioneers of this vicinity, died
Thursday, June 3, 1909, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Eric
Erickson, 6 miles north-east of Hooper. Deceased was born June 9th,
1820, in Sweden, and had she lived until the 9th of June this year
would have been 89 years old.  She came to this country in 1864
with her husband and immediately settled in this vicinity and this
has since been her home. 

She was preceded in death by her husband about ten years ago. She
is survived by six children, Mrs. Wm. Keller of this city, Lars
Peterson of Uehling, Peter Peterson of Uehling, Henry Dahl of
Cripple Creek, Co., Erick Dahl of Hastings, and Mrs. Eric Erickson,
with whom she made her home. Mrs. Dahl suffered a stroke of
paralysis about five years ago and since that time has been in very
poor health and the life tide slowly ebbed away until it became
extinct. 

During the early pioneer days Mrs. Dahl suffered the hardships of
the pioneer life and learned the value of little acts of kindness
extended to all and she never failed to extend the hand of
friendship wherever it was possible and her many deeds of kindness
won for her a warm spot in the hearts of all who were honored with
her acquaintance. Funeral services were held Sunday from the
residence and were conducted by Rev. Harrison of Scribner.

Mini Biography
By Harry H. Wagner


Ambrose Erickson (Gullos Ambrose Erson), 50, was born on April 10,
1832 in Vamhus, Mora, Sweden.  He died on April 29, 1882 in Nebraska
and is buried at the Baptist cemetery south of Uehling, Nebraska.
He married Swedish born Carrie Chapman (Gunnar Kari Olofsdotter),
but the place and date are not known.  They emigrated to Montreal,
Canada and entered the United States at Buffalo, NY.  Their oldest
son, Erick, was born in Pennsylvania according to the 1880 US
Census, but Erick's obituary states that he was born in Buffalo, NY
on May 2, 1864. Their second son, Charles, was born in Omaha,
Nebraska on November 30, 1870. Their third son, J. Ambrose, born in
Omaha, Nebraska on April 4, 1873. Their fourth son, William, was
born in Nebraska in 1875, and he died in 1881. Their fifth son,
Andrew, was born in Swaburg on April 21, 1877. Their only daughter,
Emily, was born at Swaburg, Nebraska in 1881, and she died in 1884.
It appears that they moved from Omaha to Swaburg after April 4, 1873
and before April 21, 1877.

Obituary

Mrs. Charles Erickson

Mrs. Charles Erickson, a former resident of the Swaburg community,
but of recent years a Uehling citizen passed away about 7 o'clock
Tuesday evening, May 27, at the farm home of her daughter, Mrs.
Earl Wedergren, of the Swaburg vicinity. Heart failure is ascribed
as the cause of her death, and followed but a two days illness.
Mrs. Erickson had gone on Sunday to the Wedergren home where on
Monday a celebration was to have been held in honor of her 54th
birthday anniversary.  On retiring Sunday evening she was
apparently in her normal health, but in the night she was stricken
with a heart attack and a physician summoned. Monday she appeared
to be improving but she later had a relapse and rapidly failed
until death came to her. The suddenness of her illness and of her
death came as a great shock to the family and friends of whom the
latter are many as she was a life long resident in the community in
which she died, and was held in the highest esteem. Her funeral
will be held Friday afternoon with services at 2:30 at the home and
at 3 o'clock from the Congregational church at Uehling.

Eunice E. Erickson, 93, of the Hooper/Uehling area, died Wednesday,
Oct. 16, 2013, at Good Samaritan Center in Scribner.

Eunice was born Jan. 25, 1920, on a farm north of Uehling near

was baptized in the Lutheran Church in West Point. When she was 7
years of age, she moved with her parents to a farm east of Uehling
and attended South Argo School, graduating from the eighth grade
there.

Her parents went to dances in the area, often taking Eunice with
them. At one of the dances, Eunice met Charles Erickson, and at the
age of 14, she began dating Charles. When she was 18, Charles gave
her a diamond and they were married on Sept, 25, 1938, in Elim
Lutheran Church of Swaburg. They lived on the same farm for 64
years. Charles completely remodeled their farm home, working on it
for several years. Eunice raised 500 setting hens during their first
year of marriage, and sold hatching eggs for many years at the
Oakland Hatchery.

Eunice was also a nurse’s aid in West Point and Blair. She taught
Sunday school for preschool children for many years. She also was a
4-H leader. For 15 years, she was a recovery leader for people
recovering from a nervous breakdown. She and Charles were sponsors

her Rebecca. She and Charles belonged to four square dance clubs and
were active in them for over 40 years. She made her own square
dancing dresses and Charles’ matching shirts. She also entertained
as a clown at fairs and parades.

She belonged to the Ladies Aid and the Wo-He-Lo Club. The couple
traveled in all the United States. After caring for her mother in
their home for seven years, they traveled to eight different
countries in Europe, and later to China (where Charles walked the
Great Wall), Japan, Thailand, and Singapore.

Following her husband’s death in December 2002, Eunice remained on
the farm with her golden retriever dog, Herby. When she had to leave
the farm, she moved into the Elkhorn Valley Villas in Scribner
before entering the Good Samaritan Center.

Services Today for Mrs. Erickson

News of the death of Mrs. Eric G. Erickson of Uehling on Monday
afternoon was heard with sadness and regret by the many friends of
this well known and highly esteemed couple throughout this area. 

Tena Dahl, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Dahl, was born in Sweden,
June 21, 1861.  She came with her parents to America in 1864, the
family, of which Mrs. Erickson was the last surviving member, being
among the first settlers of Logan township. She was united in
marriage to Erick G. Erickson on December 23, 1883 and the couple
celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in 1933 while on a
pleasure trip to California. While no children blessed their union.
Mrs. Erickson was beloved by a number of nephews and nieces who
with the bereaved husband survive to mourn her loss and to cherish
her memory. Following their marriage the Ericksons farmed in Logan
township.  For a period of four or five years they made their home
in Hooper while the husband was employed by the late A. H. Harms,
Hooper pioneer merchant. After retiring from active farm life
Uehling became their home. Here Mrs. Erickson was a faintly
worshipper at the Congregational church and served for many years
as president of the Ladies Aid of this church. During her last
illness, of about a year's duration, she demonstrated by patience
and fortitude the practice and teaching of the true Christian
character her daily life had ever exemplified. 

Funeral services for Mrs. Erickson will be held this Thursday
afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Uehling Congregational church with
a former pastor Mrs. Darella Barber, officiating. Music will be
rendered by a quartet composed of Mrs. Fred Butler, Miss Luella
Sampson, Harry Stromquist and Ivar Anderson, with Mrs. Ivan
Wedergren as accompanist. Pallbearers will be Elmer, Frank, Edwin
and Henry Petersen, Marvin Mattson and James Johnson. Interment,
under the direction of Wollmer & Warne of Hooper, will be made in
the Baptist cemetery near Uehling.

violin more than a century old, was an accomplished violinist and
teacher of violin.  He was also a composer of music, and in 1908
had published two hymns "Where Will Jesus Find You" and "Our Savior
and Our God", the latter bearing a dedication to the Hooper male
chorus which was then an outstanding musical organization. Mr.
Johnson was affiliated with the Christian church in Fremont.

Death of Andrew Larson

After an Operation to Prevent the Spread of Blood Poison

On Thursday, last week, after consulting with the family and the
family physician of Andrew Larson, Dr. Hill of Lyons, it was
concluded that the only way to prevent the spread of blood
poisoning was to amputate the foot.  Mr. Larson had contracted
blood poisoning from a prick of a needle in one of his toes. Dr.
Somers, an eminent surgeon of Omaha, was summonsed here to perform
the operation, which was successfully performed, but gangrene had
too much headway.  The patient dying on Sunday evening at 5
o'clock, Deceased was aged 67 years, 2 months and 8 days.  He left
Sweden July 5, 1863. He arrived in Chicago the same year. He was
married in 1864 in Chicago to his wife who survives. Shortly after
marriage, the same year, he joined a Swedish colony that located in
this neighborhood, and he has lived ever since on the same farm
with his family. 

The deceased leaves six children besides his wife.  The children
are Andrew, Lars, Oliver, Peter and Eric Larson, and Mrs. Holmes.
The funeral was held on Monday afternoon from the residence of his
son in town.  The services were held by Rev. Mr. Arlander, Swedish
Baptist minister of Oakland. He spoke in the Swedish and English
language. Those acting as pall bearers were Theodore Uehling, P. A.
Anderson, J. G. Meyer, Henry Uehling, Joseph Johnson and Eph

Mini Biography
By Harry H. Wagner


Andrew and Mary (Anderson/Bowman) Larson

Andrew Larson was born at Våmhus, Mora, Sweden on May 18, 1841 to
Lars and Brita (Andersdotter) Larson whose other Swedish born
children were Mait (1839-???? may have died as an infant), Oliver
(1844-1912), Carrie Lund (1847-1893), Mary Peterson (1849-1890),
and Becky Frost (1852-1916).  Andrew emigrated to the USA on July
5, 1863, and his first home in America was in Chicago, IL.  On
August 22, 1864 he married Mary Anderson/Bowman in Chicago.

Mary Anderson/Bowman was born in Mora, Dalarna, Sweden on January
6, 1840 to Andrew and Karin (Mattsdotter) Mattson, whose other
Swedish born children were; Martin (1835-????), Karin (1834-????),
Anna Peterson (1846-1920), and Andrew (1849-1919). Andrew Mattson
died about 1847 in Sweden, and the family emigrated to the USA in
1863.  Due to the many Andersons in America they changed their name
to Bowman to minimize the conflict with the Anderson name.  Andrew
and Mary Larson located in Logan Township in 1864.

In the summer of 1908 Andrew contracted blood poisoning from the
prick of a needle in one of his toes.  In order to stop the spread
of the blood poisoning it was decided to amputate his foot. An
eminent Omaha surgeon was summoned to perform the operation, and
the operation was successful. However, gangrene had too much
headway and Andrew died on July 26, 1908.  One of the remarkable
features of his life is that this was the first time he had ever
called upon a physician and none had ever before been called into
the family.  He was buried at the Baptist Cemetery south of town.
Mary died on Oct. 15, 1924.

Andrew and Mary Larson had 6 children:

(1) Lars A. Larson, born on Sept. 14, 1864 and died on June 17,
    1938. He was not married. 
(2) Andrew A. Larson, born in 1870 and died on March 24, 1933.  
    He married Annie Anderson and they had 8 children; Vernon D.,
    Ethel Siemsen, Laura M., Ruth Cowen, Irving B., Lillian, 
    Harold W., and Edna Peterson. 
(3) Mary, born on Nov. 24, 1872 and died on July 9, 1933. 
    She married Everett Holmes and they had 11 children; Harry J., 
    Ray S., Everett A., Marian, Gertrude Rusk, Mary Smith, Guy H., 
    Ivan L., Ethel F., Edith F., and Stanley. 
(4) Oliver A. Larson, born on Nov. 1, 1874 and died on Nov. 22, 
    1956.  He married Anna Larson and they had 6 children;
    Howard O., Roy O., Minnie Anderson, Alvin E., Mabel Tronsgard, 
    and Carroll A. 
(5) Peter A. Larson, born on May 27, 1877 and died on
    Dec. 5, 1936.  He married Ruby Mattson, but they had no 
    children.
(6) Eric A. Larson, born on Sept. 28, 1879 and died on June 23,
    1952. He was not married.

Little Boy Kicked to Death

The little 5 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Larson, residing
about 5 miles north-east of Hooper, died Sunday from injuries
received by being kicked by a horse. The accident occurred at the
home of the little fellow's grandfather, Andrew Linn, of near
Uehling, where the Larson family had gone to spend the day.  Some
of the men were out about the barn and the little boy had been sent
to call them to the house. On entering the barn he was kicked just
above the ear by a yearling colt and the skull was fractured and
death resulted shortly after. The accident was a very sad one and
the sorrowing parents have the sympathy of the entire community in
their bereavement. Funeral services and burial took place Tuesday.

Pioneer of Dodge County is Stricken Last Friday

The community was greatly shocked when it became known that Lars A.
Larson had been found dead in his place of business shortly after
the noon hour last Friday. He had returned from his midday lunch
and opened the rear door at the implement store for Fritz Meyer to
get his car and was evidently walking back to the front end when he
was stricken with a heart attack from which he did not recover. His
lifeless body was found about 1:30 and Dr. Heyne of Hooper was
called, but life was extinct. Wollmer & Warne, funeral directors of
Hooper were called and took charge of the body and prepared it for
burial.

Lars. A. Larson was born on the old Andrew Larson homestead one
mile south of Uehling on September 14, 1864, and died in Uehling
June 17, 1938, being 73 years, 9 months and 3 days of age.  He was
the first white boy born in Logan township.  Upon reaching maturity
he engaged in farming, corn shelling and threshing for several
years north of Lyons in Burt county.  In the fall of 1907, together
his brothers, Oliver A. and Peter A. Larson he started the erection
of the brick building in Uehling now occupied by the Larson &
Anderson general store, and in the spring of 1908 they started in
the implement business.  This partnership was continued until about
1918 when Peter A. Larson severed is connection with it to enter
the garage business, and it was continued by Oliver A. and the
deceased until the time of his death.

The deceased leaves to mourn his death two brothers, Oliver A. of
Uehling and Eric A. of San Francisco, California and a number of
nieces and Nephews and other relatives and a host of friends.  Two
other brothers, Andrew A. and Peter A. Larson and two sisters,
Annie and Mrs. E. L. Holmes preceded him in death. Funeral
services, which were very largely attended, were held at the
Congregational church in Uehling Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock,
with the pastor, Mrs. Derelle Barber officiating . . . .

A Pioneer of Dodge County of the late 60's Passed away at the farm
residence Friday, Feb. 16, 1912 Aged 68 years, 15 days

Oliver Larson a pioneer resident of Logan Township living a half
mile south of Uehling passed away suddenly Friday morning, Feb. 16,
at 10 o'clock following a second stroke of paralysis.  Mr. Larson
suffered his first stroke on Oct. 8, 1910, while on a hay sweep
working in the hay field, from which he recovered but it left him
crippled in his right arm and leg. After his recovery he became
unusually active and came up town every day that the weather
permitted. When the snow came it became necessary on account of his
ailment to be confined to the house.  From that time he gradually
began to fail, dropsy having also set in, and towards the last he
could only get around in the house by holding on to the back of a
chair and pushing it ahead of himself. On the morning of his demise
he had been up as usual and partook of a light breakfast and on
becoming tired concluded he would lay down awhile. His wife and
daughter, Mrs. Carl Kammerer, helped him to bed and left in a
sitting position and stepped out of the room, when suddenly they
heard a slight noise and they rushed back in to the bedroom and
found that he had fallen back into bed. Thinking that he had
fainted they applied a wet cloth to his head and summoned Dr.
Perlee who upon arrival pronounced him dead.  His death was not
altogether unexpected. For a number of years before his first
stroke he suffered from a peculiar fainting sensation when in a
company of large gatherings which caused him to be of a retiring
disposition and he avoided them if as possible. 

Oliver Larson was born in Limbeck, Wåmhus, Sweden on Jan. 31, 1844.
He landed in Castle Garden, New York, on July 29, 1863 and from
there came to Chicago where he remained nearly a year, following
the occupation of basket maker. In 1864 he came west to Omaha where
he went to work for the Union Pacific which was then being built.
Mr. Larson was married to Miss Anna Anderson in Chicago. She died
about a year after marriage. July 5th 1866, he was united in
marriage to Miss Anna Olson in Omaha. They came soon afterward to
Dodge county and then on a homestead in Logan township. There they
made their home until eleven years ago when they sold the place and
bought one adjoining where they have since resided.

He is survived by a wife, five sons, Oliver, Andrew, Daniel,
Harvey, Edward, and four daughters, Mrs. Wm Ralph, Mrs. Aug.
Koehler, Mrs. A. C. Kammerer and Miss Elsie Larson. The funeral
services were held from the home Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock.
Rev. Arlander of Oakland officiating. Interment in the Baptist
cemetery. We extend condolences.

Mini Biography
By Harry H. Wagner

Oliver and Anna (Olson) Larson

Oliver Larson was born at Limbeck, Våmhus, Mora, Sweden on January
31, 1844 to Lars and Brita Andersdotter Larson whose other Swedish
born children were Mait (1839-???? may have died as an infant),
Andrew (1841-1908), Carrie Lund (1847-1893), Mary Peterson (1849-
1890) and Becky Frost (1852-1916).  Oliver was 19 years old when he
emigrated to the USA, landing at Castle Garden, NY on July 29,
1863.  It is not known if he emigrated alone or with other members
of his family.  However, his parents and all of his sisters and his
brother did emigrate to the USA and they settled near the present
town of Uehling, NE.  Oliver's first home in America was in
Chicago, IL where he worked as a basket maker for a year. Oliver
Larson married Anna Anderson in Chicago in 1863, and they moved to
Omaha, NE in 1864 where he worked for the Union Pacific Railroad.
Anna died at Omaha in 1864.  In September, 1864 Oliver applied for
a homestead, application No. 417, for the NW quarter of Section 10
in Township 20N of Range 8E.  The homestead papers state that he
settled on this land on September 18, 1864 and was the head of a
family.

Anna Olson was born on October 31, 1849 at Mora, Dalarna, Sweden to
Oliver and Margit Olsdotter Olson, whose other children were Olaf
(1846-???), Margaret Johnson (1853-1919), Carrie Larson (1857-
1935), Christina Peterson (1860-1945), Andrew (1863-????) and Henry
Andrew (1867-1952). All of the Olson children were born in Sweden
except Henry Andrew who was born at Swaburg, Dodge County,
Nebraska.  Anna Olson emigrated to the USA with her parents and
other family members on July 8, 1865 at the age of 16 years. Their
first home was also Chicago, IL, but they soon moved to Omaha, NE,
and later to the Swaburg neighborhood of Dodge County.

Oliver Larson and Anna Olson were married at Omaha, Nebraska on
July 5, 1866 and settled on Oliver's homestead near the present
town of Uehling, NE.  The homestead process was completed in
October, 1869 with the final certificate No. 180 issued in
November, 1871.  The homestead papers show that by 1869 Oliver had
built a 14X16 log house with 1 door and 2 windows, and that they
had 2 children.  Oliver became a US citizen on October, 4, 1869 at
Fremont, Dodge County, NE.  Oliver and Anna lived on the homestead
until about 1901 when they sold it and bought an adjoining farm in
section 11.

Oliver and Anna had 14 children: Oliver (1867-1927), Unknown (?-?),
Anna (1871-1873), Ann (1872-1872), Mary (1872-1872), Christina
Realph (1873-1928), Charley (1876-1890), Andrew (1878-1947), Daniel
(1881-1955), Harvey (1883-1959), Edward (1886-1935), Minnie Koehler
(1888-1936), Lillie Kammerer (1890-1976) and Elsie Woodruff (1893-
1974).

Oliver Larson, 68, died from a stroke on February 16, 1912 at his
home, a half mile south of Uehling, NE.  He was buried at the
Baptist Cemetery, south of town.  For several years Anna made her
home with her daughter, Minnie (Mrs. August Koehler), where she
died on November 15, 1922 at the age of 73.  She is also was buried
at the Baptist Cemetery. Graves for the children; Unknown, Anna,
Ann and Mary have not been located, and it is possible that they
were buried on the homestead.

Matts Mattson, Old Time Resident, Passed Away

The community was shocked when it was learned that Matts Mattson
had passed away at the Good Samaritan hospital in Fremont at 8:05
Monday morning.  He had been taken to the hospital Saturday about
one o'clock, after a sinking spell and accident at his home here
that morning. He had complained of not feeling well Friday
afternoon, so Saturday morning his brother John Mattson went to see
how he was feeling and found him sitting on a chair but still
undressed. He had gotten up and tried to dress, but fell to the
floor.  He tried it a second time with the same result. He
succeeded in pulling himself up to the chair, where he was found by
his brother and placed in bed. Dr. Heine of Hooper was called, who
examined him, but was unable to ascertain if any bones were broken
so Wollmer and Warne's ambulance was called and he was taken to the
hospital at Fremont for an X-ray examination, and it was found a
bone in one hip had been broken. Due to his advanced age and his
already weakened condition the shock was too much for him and he
passed away as above stated. Matts Mattson was born in Dalarne,
Sweden, September 30, 1856 and died in Fremont September 26, 1938,
at the age of 81 years 10 months and 26 days. He spent his early
boyhood in Sweden and at the age of 8, he started with his parents,
brother and sisters across the Atlantic Ocean. In those days it
required seven weeks to make the trip.  The family arrived in Omaha
in the year 1865 making their home there until they came the
vicinity known as Swaburg in the year 1870, where the greater part
of his life was spent.

After the death of his parents, the most of the time he made his
home in Uehling, the past few years alone in his cottage on Main
Street. Two brothers and four sisters preceded him in death.
Surviving are his brother, John Mattson of Uehling, four nieces and
nine nephews, and 15 grand nephews and nieces and 8 greatgrand
nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held this (Thursday)
afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Congregational church.  The pastor,
Mrs. Derelle Barber, will officiate. Wollmer & Warne, Hooper
morticians will be in charge. Interment will be the Baptist
cemetery, south of town.

Matts Mattson, Junior

Matts Mattson, Junior was born in Mora, Dalarne, Sweden on
September 30, 1856.  He was the son of Kerstin (Olson) and Matts
Mattson, Senior.  His early childhood was spent in Sweden.  In
1865, the family left Sweden and sailed for the United States of
America.  This included his parents, and his sisters Carrie, Mary
and Christina and brother Olaf. Christina died during the trip and
was buried in the Atlantic Ocean.

After their seven week trip they arrived in this country. From the
east they traveled with a group of Mormons on their way to Utah.
The Mattson family stopped at Omaha.  Brother Olaf died the day
they arrived in Omaha.  The family lived in Omaha for five years
during which time John and Christina were born.  The father worked
as a mason.  The family traveled to Dodge County in about 1870 and
took a homestead of 160 Acres in Logan Township.  This land was
later owned by Gus Westergren.

Matts helped his parents on the family farm although he was
partially crippled in one arm from childhood.  While helping to
nurse a sick mule, the mule became enraged and bit Matts on the
lower leg.  The leg had to be amputated and Matts was fitted with a
wooden leg.

When Matts moved to Uehling from the farm he had a small house on
the north end of Main Street.  He suffered a severe fall in this
house and was taken to the Fremont hospital.  He died in Fremont on
September 26, 1938.  Matts is buried in the Baptist Cemetery south
of Uehling.

Road Workers Find Grave Near Uehling

The workers on the highway between here and Winslow were grading
just a little southeast of the Uehling school when they struck what
proved to be a grave and immediately stopped operation in that
particular place until the proper legal steps could be taken and
the remains moved to another burial ground. The grave proved to be
that of Eric Moline who died October 15, 1873 at the age of eight
years, and as there were no cemeteries at that time, he was buried
in the extreme Northwest corner of the farm now farmed by Kenneth
Uehling, and which is known as the Moline homestead. When the grave
was discovered, relatives of the deceased were contacted and their
permission secured for removing the remains, and Albert Erickson,
together with Wollmer and Warne, Hooper Morticians, what was left
of the body and coffin were taken up and removed to the Baptist
cemetery, south of town, where it was buried beside that of his
parents. The deceased has a brother, Louis Moline, living at Wausa,
Nebraska and a sister Mrs. Ed Young at Walthill.

Pioneer Dead

Charles Morell, one of the pioneers of the Swaburg settlement of
Dodge County, is dead. He passed away quietly Wednesday morning
from old age. He had reached the age of eighty-eight years and,
until the time when senility began to tell on his constitution the
last several years, he had not had a days sickness since he came to
this county in 1869.

Mr. Morell was born in Mora, Dalarne, Sweden, January 22, 1826.
With his family he emigrated to America in the summer of 1869, and
came to Omaha, August 10th that year.  He came first to Burt county
and stopped for a time with his brother here, Andrew Morell.  He
homesteaded an eighty in Dodge County, one of the last tracts of
and then available for homestead entry in that section of the
country. When the family landed at Omaha after a voyage from St.
Louis up the Missouri River they had a debt of fifteen dollars on
the fare, one of the children a corpse and other children ill in a
strange country and unable to speak or understand the language.
The early years on the homestead were times of trial and often
hardship, as was common at that time.  But finally patience was
rewarded and more prosperous days came. The homestead was retained
as a home after dividing up other land between the children, and
here he spent his last days on earth, tenderly cared for by his
life companion and the daughter, Mrs. Erick Strand.  His death was
as the falling of evening shadows, a gradual drawing of the veil of
darkness on this life and the entrance to eternity. 

There remains to mourn his passing, the wife and four children,
viz, Andrew R. Morell of Gothenburg; Mrs. Erick Strand of Swaburg;
Erick Morell of Oakland; and A. W. Morell of Atkinson. The funeral
takes place this afternoon from the home, and interment in the
Swaburg Baptist cemetery.

Dodge And Washington Counties

Andrew E. Olson

Noteworthy among the intelligent and self-reliant men who are ably
conducting the agricultural interest of Dodge County is Andrew
Olson, who owns and occupies a finely improved farm Logan Township
and in its management is meeting with marked success.  Coming on
both sides of the house of thrifty Swedish ancestry, he was born,
December 22, 1872, in Dodge County, where his entire life has been
spent.

Lars Olson, his father, was born, in 1843, in Sweden, and in 1868
immigrated to the United States, locating first in Omaha, Nebraska,
arriving there with but  $5 to is name.  Subsequently taking up a
homestead claim in Logan Township, he brought a wagon load of goods
across the country to the small shanty in which he was to live, and
for may years thereafter was busily engaged in the pioneer task of
clearing and improving a farm.   Prospering far beyond his first
expectations, he wisely invested his accumulations in more land, and
at the time of his death, in 1916, had title to a valuable farm of
360 acres, a large part of which was under cultivation.  In 1871 he
married, his wife being also born in Sweden.   She came to the
United States in 1870 and was married in Omaha.  Mrs. Carrie Olson
is now sixty-eight years old and still lives on the home farm.  To
Mr. and Mrs. Olson three children were born, as follows: Andrew E.,
of this sketch; Mrs. Frances Erickson of Dodge County: and Mrs. Mary
Erickson, also of this county.

Brought up on the parental homestead and educated in the rural
schools, Andrew E. Olson chose for his life work the free and
independent occupation with which he had become familiar while
working with his father, and having inherited 120 acres of land in
Logan Township immediately began general farming on his own account.
Industrious and enterprising, Mr. Olson succeeded well in his
undertakings, his land being now well cultivated and well improved,
and amply supplied with farm buildings and farm machinery.

Mr. Olson married, in 1908, Carrie Hansen, who was born in Sweden,
where her father still resides and they have one child, Lillian
Olson, a school girl.  Politically Mr. Olson is a steadfast
supporter of the principles of the republican party and in 1918
served as moderator of School District No. 84. Fraternally he is a
member of the Woodmen of the World and takes great interest in the
order.

aid his condition, he submitted to an operation for the amputation
of his right leg. Rallying, he had been able to get about in a
wheelchair and was happy to be able to do tasks around the home.
The final summons came as he sat working in his chair in his yard.
During his many years as a resident in Swaburg, Mr. Olson
identified himself as a kind neighbor and a good citizen.  He took
an active interest in the affairs of the community and for many
years served as treasurer of the Logan View School in Swaburg.

He is survived by his widow; a son, Howard; a daughter, Mrs. Harry
Olson; a granddaughter; three sisters, Mrs. Christina Erickson, of
Uehling, Mrs. A. L. Anderson of Iowa, and Mrs. John Carson of

Beloved Swaburg Girl Called By Her Maker

The truth of the phrase, "In the midst of life there is death,"
came home to the people of the Swaburg community last week when
word was received that Evelyn Olson, second eldest daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Eric Oslon, had passed away at the St. Joseph hospital in
Omaha on April 1st.  She was a sufferer from diabetes and last fall
spent several weeks in an Omaha hospital taking treatment.  A
little more than a week before her death she again went to Omaha to
begin a month's course of treatment.  She was taken seriously ill
on Saturday and on Sunday her relatives were called to her bedside.
Before their arrival she had sunk into a state of coma, from which
she never rallied, but lingered until 10:35 Tuesday evening, when
the death angel claimed her for his own. 

Evelyn Amelia Olson was born in Swaburg, October 6, 1908, and was
at the time of her demise 15 years, 5 months and 25 days of age.
She was a pupil at the Logan View school, from which she graduated
in 1921. After having spent a year at home, she entered the
Freshman class of the Uehling high school, last fall, but after six
weeks failing health obliged her to discontinue her studies. She
was a very able scholar, also possessing a natural talent for music
and was an unusually sweet singer.  Her sunny nature and happy
friendliness endeared her to both young and old, and she was a
favorite among her friends.  But over and above all other
qualities, was the simple faith of childhood which she possessed.
Often during her last years as a student at the Logan View school,
she would repeat to her teacher the beautiful truths she had
learned in her Sunday school class, truths in which she had am
implicit belief.  Hers was a beautiful life, full of much promise,
but the Master hath need of these flowers rare," so Evelyn was
summoned Home and now the entire community is joined in sorrow with
the grief stricken parents, the sister, Geraldine and the brother,
Howard.

Funeral services were held Friday afternoon, the Rev. J. S. Benson
officiating.  A brief prayer service was held at the late home and
a mixed quartet composed of Pastor Benson, Harry Stromquist, Miss
Margaret Westlin and Miss Luella Sampson sang "In the Sweet By and
By," one of Evalyn's favorite hymns. This was followed by services
at the Congregational church at Uehling, where Pastor Benson spoke
words of hope and comfort, using for his text Come unto Me, all ye
that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."   The
quartet sang "One Sweetly Solemn Thought," "Jesus, Lover of My
Soul" and " We shall Sleep, But Not Forever."   Throngs of friends
had come to pay their last respects to this loved one and there was
a profusion of floral tributes.  Active pallbearers, students of
the Uehling high school were Raymond Kuhlman; Arthur Suhr, Carl
Wedergren, Sherman Westlin, John Rinderhagen and Windsor Uehling.
Honorary pallbearers, classmates, were; Lillian Olson, Christine
Meline, Opal Larson, Thelma Stromquist, Mildred Suhr and Mildred
Meyer. Interment was made in the Baptist cemetery at Swaburg, and
there in the quiet God's acre, just adjoining her late home, Evelyn
is at rest.

Among those who came from a distance to attend the funeral were
Mrs. Lee Keene, of Hawarden, Iowa; Mrs A. L. Anderson, Mrs Carrie
Pippons and Leslie Jacobs, of Omaha; Mrs Gust Bronson, of Fremont;
Mrs. A. Linn and Miss Ellen Linn, of Hoskins; Mrs. Henry Peterson,
Mrs. Hubert Anderson, Andrew, Oscar, William and Arthur Anderson,
of Lyons; A. B. Jacobs, of Thurston; Mr. and Mrs. Will Olson, of
North Bend; Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Olson and children and Mr. and Mrs.
Glen Carson, of Bertha; Vernon Olson, of Wahoo; and Miss Margaret
Olson, of Oakland.

Swaburg Pioneer Answers Death's Call

Another of Swaburg's sturdy pioneer settlers has answered the final
summons and passed to the Great Beyond. Mrs. Carrie Olson was born
in Mora, Dalarne, Sweden, February 11, 1852, and died at her home
in Uehling on April 23, 1924 aged 72 years, 2 months and 9 days.
When 18 years old she left the homeland, arriving at Omaha in 1870.
There she was united in marriage, the following year, to Lars
Olson, and together they came to Swaburg to settle upon the
homestead just north of the Lutheran church. In 1877 they sold this
homestead and removed to the Craig neighborhood where they lived
for fourteen years, moving back to Swaburg in 1891, this place
being the family home until the death of Mr. Olson in 1916.  The
struggles and hardships of the early days earned for Mrs. Olson the
ease and comforts in which her declining years were spent living
with her children and at Uehling.

Mourning this devoted mother are one son, Andrew, and two
daughters, Mrs. Charles Erickson and Mrs. Andrew Erickson, all of
Swaburg. She is also survived by six grandchildren and three great
grandchildren, a sister in Sweden and a brother, Ola Lindquist, of
Uehling. Funeral services were held Saturday from the late home and
the Congregational church in Uehling, the Rev. J. S. Benson
officiating.  A quartet composed of Pastor Benson, Harry
Stromquist, Miss Margaret Westlin and Miss Luella Sampson sang, and
Pastor Benson sang a solo in Swedish. Interment was made in the
family lot in the Baptist cemetery in Swaburg. The pallbearers were
Andrew Bowman, Tura Bowman, And. Frost, Mats Anderson, Peter Hanson
and Frank Peterson.

Olson, Matts Family 
by Marie Erickson Olson

My grandfather, Matts Olson, was born April 18, 1841, in Berkarlos,
Mora, Dalarna, Kopparbergs Lan, Sweden, to Elinos Olaf Anderson and
Holknekt Kerstin Mattsdotter.  His mother died Nov. 10, 1852,
leaving six small children.  His father married Maria Andersdotter
in 1854. She had a daughter, Margit, who later married her
stepbrother, Andrew. Maria died in 1865. 

In 1868, Matts, who used the patronymics system of adding son to
his father's first name for his last name, Olson, and his brother,
Andrew, who chose the name Linn, and Andrew's wife and daughter
came to Omaha, NE.  In the 1870's, their father, brother, Olaf, who
chose the name Lindquist, and sisters, Kerstin and Karen, arrived. 
Sister Margit remained in Sweden. Grandfather got a job with the
Union Pacific, building the railway west. I have been told he was
present at the driving of the Golden Spike at Promontory Point,
Utah, May 10, 1869, but have no proof. 

In 1870, grandfather went to Logan Creek in Dodge County where he
filed for a homestead consisting of 80 acres, the north - - ship
20, range 8 east. The deed given by President R. B. Hayes, was
dated Mar. 1, 1879. Forty acres of this land is in my possession.
At the time of grandfather's death in 1914, he owned over 700 acres
in Dodge and Burt counties. In the early 1870's, he married a
widow, Mrs. Carrie Jacobs, whom he had known in Sweden. Her life in
the new world had been tragic.  In the spring of 1870, she sailed
with her husband, Bud Jacob, and two sons, for the U.S.A. The
youngest son, born in 1869, had his first birthday on the ocean.
Soon after coming to Omaha, her husband and oldest son died of
typhoid fever. She laid for six weeks with the fever, then in the
middle of winter, was taken by sleigh to relatives of her husband
in Logan Township in Dodge County, where she married Matts Olson.
Grandfather was active in a Sunday School and entertained many
itinerant preachers.

On Oct. 26, 1892, the Olsons deeded two acres for a Baptist
Cemetery south of Uehling.  It is still in use.

Grandfather fed cattle.  It probably wasn't good for his asthma,
but they were his life.  One steer was sent to England. 

Grandmother bore 14 children, but only seven grew up. They were A.
B. Jacobs, by her first husband, and the children of Matts Olson
who were Eric, William, Alfred, Mary Anderson, whose twin Christina
died, Christina Erickson, and Mabel Carson. My grandparents retired
to Uehling, NE, where grandfather died in 1914 from dropsy.
Grandmother had a stroke and lived for five years without being
able to speak. She died in 1917. The Olsons, have too many
descendants to name them all, but a vast majority reside in eastern
Nebraska.  Only my mother, Christina Erickson, held on to the land
she inherited, in spit of being widowed at 34 years of age and the
Great Depression.  At her death in 1959, she passed it on to her
daughters, Marjorie Realph, Marie Olson, the writer of this
article, and Bernice Clough, whose land, since her death in 1984,
is owned by her children, LaNelle, Roger, and David Clough.
Marjorie's son, James Realph, of Blair, farms most of this land, as
well as doing work in the credit field. He loves the land and the
great outdoors. Without the help of his wife, Pam, I couldn't have
submitted this article. My mother also bought her parents' home in
Uehling, NE, in 1918, and lived there for over 40 years. 

After almost 50 years in Omaha, my husband, Charles Lorraine Olson,
and I built a house on one of her lots and retired to the peace and
quiet of a small town. My grandparents would be proud to know that
many of their grandchildren and great-grandchildren are or have
been active in the field of education, either as teachers or school
administrators, and active in their churches.  They are carrying on
the tradition of making this a better place to live just as my
grandparents did when they helped other poor immigrants get started
in the New World.

Mrs. Matts Olson

On Saturday, Nov. 3, occurred the death of Mrs. Matts Olson at her
home in Uehling.  About four years ago Mrs. Olson suffered a stroke
of paralysis, and since that time she had been in a helpless
condition, but kind hands gave her the best of care. 

Mrs. Matts Olson was born Nov. 11, 1841, at Vattnas, Mora, Sweden. 
In 1866 she was united in wedlock to Andrew Jacobs, in Sweden.  To
this union were born three children, Two of them died in infancy;
one survives her.

The family immigrated to America in the year 1870 and resided for a
short time in Omaha, where the husband died. In 1872 Mrs. Olson was
again married, at Fremont, to Matts Olson.  Eleven children were
born to this union. Four passed to the great beyond before her. 

Down at Swaburg, only a few yards from the Lutheran church, Mr.
Olson took a homestead. The family prospered greatly and
accumulated nearly a thousand acres of Nebraska's most productive
land.  A few years they lived northeast of Oakland, a mile south of
Bertha, but then moved back to Swaburg. Something like a dozen
years ago, when the children had grown up and left the parental
home, Mr. and Mrs. Olson moved to Uehling. There Mr. Olson died
four years ago. 

Of the many who mourn her demise are the seven children; Andrew
Jacobs, Craig, Nebr.; Eric Olson, Hooper, Nebr.; Willie A. Olson,
Hooper, Nebr.; Alfred Olson, Craig, Nebr.; Mrs A. L. Anderson,
Hawarden, Iowa; Mrs. Ambrose Ericson, Hooper, Nebr.; Mrs. Glen

Early Settler Near Here; Dies in Calif.

Tuesday Hooper relatives received word to the effect that Lars
Peterson, one of the first pioneer settlers of the Swaburg
neighborhood, had died on Monday morning, Oct. 8, at the home of
his daughter, Mrs. C. W. Johnson, at Los Angeles, Calif., following
an attack of heart trouble. His body will be brought to Uehling for
funeral services and burial, and will reach there the latter part
of the week, the exact date as yet being uncertain. 

Mr. Peterson was 82 years old, having been born in Sweden on June
24, 1841.  On July 14, 1863, he landed at New York City and went on
to Chicago where for a year he engaged in carpentering.  In 1864 he
and two companions came westward to Omaha to seek homes for
themselves and other countrymen. From Omaha he up into the Logan
valley and settled on the homestead that is now farmed by his son,
Elmer. This was the beginning of the Swaburg settlement.  Mr.
Peterson was the last survivor of that early band of pioneers.  The
homestead remained his home until 1898 when he retired from active
farm life and enjoy the fruits of his labors. Then followed a
period of traveling in the west and a five years residence in
Denver before settling permanently in Uehling.  Last fall he
accompanied his daughter, Mrs. Johnson, and family to California,
death overtaking him while helping in the construction of the new
home.

Mr. Peterson was married on Oct. 10, 1864, to Hanna Anderson at
Omaha who passed away on July 23, 1920, after sharing his joys and
sorrows and successes and disappointments for nearly fifty six
years. He was the father of eleven children, nine of whom survive. 
These are: Mrs. John Mattson, Henry and Elmer of this vicinity;
Will, in Texas; Roy, in South America, and Mrs. Anna Bennett, Mrs.
Mae Templin, Mrs. Clara Taylor, Mrs. Lillian Johnson, all of Los
Angeles.  He is also survived by two brothers, Peter Peterson of
Omaha, and Henry Dahl of Keating, Oregon; and two sisters, Mrs. Wm.
Keller and Mrs. E. G. Erickson of Hooper. During his long residence
in this community he had gained a wide acquaintanceship and held
the highest respect of all friends, all of whom now extend the hand
of sympathy to the bereaved relatives.

History of the Elkhorn Valley

Lars Peterson, of Logan Township, Dodge County, homesteaded a part
of Section 28 in 1864.  The first season he broke seven acres of
ground and built a dugout 10x14 feet, eight feet high in the middle
and six at the corners.  This pioneer abode served our subject for
five years, when he built a log-house 16x18 feet.  The logs he cut
on the creek, while the nails and hardware he got at Omaha. From
time to time he added to his original homestead until he has three
hundred and twenty-five acres of well cultivated land.  His
buildings are of first-class design, and  all shows him to be a man
of thrift and order. 

Mr. Peterson was born in Sweden, June 24, 1841.  He is the son of
Peter and Justin Dahl, who was of the  following family of
children; Lars, Peter, Anna, Andrew, Erick, Tena and two deceased.
He of whom we write was united in marriage in 1864, to Anna
Anderson, the daughter of A. Anderson.  By this union ten children
were born as follows: Carrie, February 5, 1866; Peter, September
22, 1867; Annie, February 19, 1870; Willie, April 5, 1872; Mary,
March 15, 1874; Turcy, March 4, 1876; Andrew, September 4, 1877;
Clara, October 3, 1879; Elmer, April 26, 1884; Roy, December 15,
1886; Lillie, December 19, 1886. Our subject's oldest son
accidentally shot himself April 13, 1885 while hunting and lived
but a few hours. While our subject is now surrounded with a
comfortable home he can look back over the days when he had only
ten dollars, and that went for flour at Fremont, where he worked by
the day. In his political choice our subject is a Republican, and
in religious matters both he and his wife are Lutherans.

Lars Peterson

Having accomplished a satisfactory work in his free and independent
occupation and acquired a competency to live on in his declining
years, Lars Peterson, a retired farmer of Uehling, is now enjoying a
well-earned leisure.  Born in Sweden in 1841, he remained there
twenty-two years.

After a long and tedious ocean voyage he landed in New York on July
14, 1863.  Proceeding westward, he arrived in Chicago with 5.00 in
gold in his picket, which he soon changed into scrip, receiving
$7.50 in that currency.  Here he worked at his trade as a carpenter
until 1864.  In that year he was one of three Swedes selected to
find a favorable location for a colony of their countrymen.  Going
to Omaha, he was there told that the only land available for that
purpose lay west of Columbus, but as the Indians in that locality
were very hostile the committee decided to form a settlement in
Logan Valley instead.  The venture proved successful, and Mr.
Peterson is now the only survivor of the founders of that
settlement.

His father, who followed him to this county in 1864, came to
Nebraska where he took up a homestead claim and carried on general
farming with good results, residing on his ranch until his death, at
the age of seventy-eight years.  His wife, Justine Peterson,
survived him, living to be eighty-two years old.

Taking up a homestead claim in Dodge County, Lars Peterson went from
Chicago by rail to St. Joseph, Missouri, and thence by boat to
Omaha, Nebraska, and before leaving for the farm homestead at Logan
Valley, Nebraska, he sent his last $10.00 for flour, purchasing 200
pounds, an amount that by strict economy lasted him and his bride,
whom he married in Omaha, a long time.  He cleared and improved his
homestead of 160 acres, and lived upon it until he had accumulated a
sufficient sum to warrant him in giving up active labor, and since
1898 has lived retired, having a most desirable home in Uehling,
Nebraska.

Mr. Peterson married October 10, 1864, in Omaha, Hanna Anderson, and
to them several children have been born, namely; Peter, who died at
the age of fourteen years, having accidentally shot himself; Carrie
Mattson, wife of a Dodge County farmer; Anna Bennett, living in
California; Mary  Peterson, of Los Angeles, California; Clara
Taylor, also living in Los Angeles; Turah, who died at the age of
twenty years; Elmer, living on the parental homestead; Lillie, wife
of Dr. Chris Johnson, a veterinary surgeon living near Uehling; and
Roy, a resident of California.  Mr. Peterson has traveled in the
west, after retiring from the farm, having spent five years in
Denver before settling permanently in Uehling.  He is a never
changing republican in politics and a member of the Lutheran
Church.

Mrs. Lars Peterson

This is to chronicle the passing of one of Swaburg's few remaining
pioneer settlers, Mrs. Lars Peterson, whose death occurred at
Uehling on Friday morning, July 23rd.  She had been enjoying good
health up until the last week, taking sick on Monday.  An operation
was resorted to on Thursday in a last hope to relieve her, but
owing to her advanced age, she succumbed from the effects of it.

Mrs. Peterson was born in Mora, Dalarne, Sweden, on Sept. 22nd,
1846, being at the time of her demise aged 73 years, 10 months and
1 day. In the late 60's she came to this county and with her
husband settled on a homestead near Logan creek in Swaburg.  As a
pioneer, Mrs. Peterson suffered all the trials and inconveniences
incident to such a life. She was a true helpmate to her husband
through these early struggles and later shared in the pleasures of
more prosperous times, Spending her declining years in quiet and
ease in a comfortable home at Uehling.

Mrs. Peterson was a noble character of the conscientious and pious
school; a devout and faithful Christian; a devoted wife and an
ideal mother. She was a good friend and neighbor, ever ready to
lend a helping hand to the needy. Her loss will be keenly felt, not
only in the family circle, but in the circle of all who knew her. 

Besides the aged husband, there remain to mourn for her four sons
and five daughters. The children are: Mrs. Mary Templin, Mrs. Anna
Bennett and Mrs. Clara Taylor, all of Los Angeles, Calif.; Will, of
Knott, Texas; Roy, of Vallejo, Calif., and Mrs. Carrie Mattson,
Mrs. Lillie Johnson, Henry and Elmer of Swaburg.

The funeral services were conducted Monday from the late home in
Uehling to the Congregational church, Rev. O. W. Reger speaking
words of consolation from the text, "Precious in the sight of the
Lord is the death of His saints."  A mixed quartette furnish
special singing. There was a large attendance and the beautiful
floral tributes testified to the love and esteem in which the
departed was held. The final rites were performed at the Baptist
cemetery in Swaburg and interment made in the family lot there.

Louis Strand is Called by Death

Louis Strand, a prominent resident of this vicinity, passed away at
his home in Swaburg early Thursday morning, following a heart
attack. He had suffered a paralytic stroke twenty-three years ago
which left his heart in a weakened condition, and, although he had
suffered several heart attacks during recent years, his death was
sudden and came as a great shock and moment of mourning to the
community.

Mr. Strand was born in Mora, Dalarne, Sweden, June 6, 1862, passed
away at Swaburg, December 20, 1934 aged 72 years, 6 months and 14
days. He was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran faith in his
mother country.  When twenty-seven years of age, he came to the
United States, coming direct to Omaha in the year 1889, having
employment there until 1891, when he came to Swaburg in company
with his brother, Swan, and they formed the widely-known farming
partnership of Stand Brothers which has only now been severed.  In
1894 they moved to the Oakland vicinity. 

In March, 1004, the deceased was united in marriage at West Point,
to Miss Molly C. Magnuson, of Oakland, and they established their
first home on a newly purchased farm near Stanton. Three years
later, they moved back to the Oakland vicinity, locating on a farm
which they purchased there, upon which they resided until 1918,
when Mr. Strand retired from active farming, and they removed to
Swaburg, and since 1920, they have resided in their present home in
this community. In 1929, together with his brother, Swan, Mr.
Strand made a trip back to the homeland to visit relatives and
especially for a last visit with his one hundred year-old mother,
who passed away the following year. During his many years residence
in this territory, Mr. Strand became widely known as a citizen of
sterling quality, and through his quiet and kindly manner, his
friendly heart and unfailing good will he had gained the highest
esteem and respect of all who knew him. 

Besides the sorrowing wife, there remains to mourn his departure,
two brothers, Eric and Swan, in Swaburg, two brothers, John and
Pete, and two sisters, Mary and Anna, in Sweden, and a number of
nieces and nephews, also a host of friends with whom he leaves a
pleasant memory of a good neighbor and kind friend. 

?  Warne, of Hooper, was held from the late home on Saturday
afternoon, with the Rev. Arnold Thoren, pastor of the Elim Lutheran
church, officiating. In an impressive sermon from the text "I am
the Good Shepherd" from the tenth chapter of St. John, Pastor
Thoren brought a beautiful comfort filled message to the large
assemblage that filled the home to overflowing.  Mrs. Thoren and
Miss Luella Sampson sang the duet numbers "the sweetly Solemn
Thought" "I'm a Pilgrim"  and "Nearer My God, to Thee". A beautiful
floral tribute bore testimony to the high regard in which the
departed one was held. Interment was made in the Baptist cemetery
at Swaburg and a mile-long cortege of sorrowing friends followed
the remains to the final resting place there.  The pallbearers were
Henry Erickson, Carl Gustafson, Andrew Bowman and Andrew
Stromquist, of Uehling and Charles W. Lindgen and Henry Peterson. 

The following from a distance were in attendance at the final
rites; Mr. and Mrs. Segurd Magnuson and sons, of Emerson, Mr. and
Mrs. George I. Thomas and Erick Morell, of Omaha, Mr. and Mrs. Eric
Swenson, of Hoskins, Sherman Anderson, of Rosalie, Mr. and Mrs.
Andrew Monson, Mr. and Mrs. Albin Monson, Miss Edith Monson,
Clarence Monson, Miss Dorothy Brandenburge, and Mr. and Mrs. Andrew

Wedergren Death Due to Exposure

The death of Ivan J. Wedergren, 54, 234 W. 10th St.,  whose  body
was found Friday frozen in his station wagon near Uehling, has been
ruled due to exposure.

William  Gilmore,  deputy  county  attorney,  said  Saturday that  
a physician who had been treating Mr. Wedergren, examined the body
late Friday and made the determination.

Mr. Wedergren was found in the Baptist Cemetery about two miles
south of Uehling near Hwy. 77 by relatives concerned about his
absence.

"There were no signs of violence on the  body.  He  was  just
sitting behind the wheel." Gilmore said. "The ignition was off".

Gilmore believes the man may have been in the  cemetery  since
Monday because the station wagon was seen there Monday and
acquaintances had not seen him since Monday.

The small cemetery is over a hill in a field  and  the  station
wagon could not be seen from the highway, Gilmore stated.

Mrs. Bernice M. Wedergren, wife of the deceased man, was buried in
the cemetery Jan. 16. She died Jan. 14.

Services will be Monday at 10 a.m. at  Uehling  Congregational
church with Rev. Albert Becker officiating.

Mr. Wedergren was born March 4,  1910,  in  Uehling  and  was  a
life resident of the area.

Survivors are daughters, Mrs. Donald Payne of Lincoln and Mrs.
Deanna Peterson of Fremont; sons, Thomas and Jerome of Fremont;
sisters, Mrs. Ben (May) Heller of Fremont, Mrs. Ed (Naomi) Adams
of  Fremont, Mrs. Jack (Nellie) Gerken of Omaha, Mrs. William
(Ethel) Sommerer of Craig, Mrs. Hattie Nelson of Fremont, and Mrs.
Gladys  Sommerer  of Burbank, Calif.; and brothers, Floyd and Earl
Wedergren  of  Uehling  and Carl Wedergren of Omaha.

Burial will be at the Baptist  Cemetery,  south  of  Uehling.
Lattin-Dugan-Chambers Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
