Ellingson, Anton (7 Feb 1845 - 22 JUL 1924)
Anton Ellingson passed away at his home at Abbotsford, Wis., Friday, July 18, 1924, after a brief illness and was buried Tuesday, July 22nd, Rev. Ramsey conducting the service. He was laid at rest in the Abbotsford Cemetery beside his wife who preceded him in death about 2 1/2 years. The pallbearers were his two sons, Carl and Martin, three grandsons, Vernon, Arvin and Eldred Ellingson and one nephew, Raymond Paulson.
Anton Ellingson was born in Norway, Feb. 7th, 1845 and was 79 years, 5 months and 11 days old at time of death.
In 1869 he came to the United States arriving in Scandinavia, Wis., on July 3rd. On Jan. 1st, 1870, he was united in marriage to Miss Anna Hanson at Scandinavia and five children were born of this union, Carrie, who died a few years ago, Emma and Marie of Abbotsford, Carl of Deer Lake, and Martin of Milan. Besides the children, there are 7 grandchildren, 1 great-grandchild, 1 brother, Sam of Scandinavia, and 1 sister, Mrs. H. Paulson of Stetsonville, to mourn his loss.
Mr. Ellingson was one of Wisconsin's pioneer lumbermen who have helped so much to make Wisconsin what it is today. More than thirty years ago he came to Stetsonville and operated a sawmill with C. K. Ellingson. A few year later he purchased the sawmill at Bruckerville from Falconer & Stoddard, which he operated for a few years, then built a mill at Milan which he operated in company with his son Martin. Several years ago he retired from his labors and moved to Abbotsford, where he has since resided.
A live, upright citizen carrying not only for his own interests but all those about him. A citizen any community may well be proud of, whose kind and wise words live on years after he is gone, a benediction to all who knew him well.
The Clarion extends sincerest sympathy to all who mourn his loss.
