He was united in marriage with Miss Christian Ohman here eleven years ago and moved to the far west, returning here last fall with his family. He leaves a wife and six children, the oldest being nine years of age, the youngest four months old. The funeral took place from the M. E. Church on Tuesday afternoon, Rev. J. T. Kneen officiating, burial was in the Thorp Village Cemetery.
