Kristianson, Anton (12 MAR 1856 - 12 NOV 1915)

Anton Kristianson, a resident of this city (Greenwood, Clark County, Wis.) since 1891, died at his home on Main St. Nov. 12, 1915. He was born in Askin, Norway, March 12th, 1856, and when a boy went to Christiania, where he learned the shoemaker’s trade. In 1891 he came to Greenwood, where he has operated a shoe store and repair shop since, and was considered an exert workman.

He was a member of the Modern Woodmen, which order he always took an active interest, so it was only fitting that the last rites at the grave were performed by fellow members.

Deceased was always a kind hearted man with man friends among old and young.

Those left to mourn his loss are his wife, Lena Kristiansen, one son, Alfred, one daughter, Signe, and three step-daughters, Alice Lybeck, Selma Bredeson, and Jennie Sungaard of Philadelphia.

The funeral services were conducted Sunday afternoon from the M.E. Church under the auspices of the M.W.A., Rev. J.S. Willmarth officiating. Burial was in the Greenwood Cemetery.
