Berg, Carl C. (27 April 1851 - 19 April 1940)
Carl C. Berg, 89, passed away Saturday morning, April 19, at Granton, the cause of his death being old age complications.
Mr. Berg was born in Solar, Norway, April 27, 1851, the son of Carl H. and Ellen Berg. He remained in his native country until he was 21 years of age. He then came to the United States and located at Black River Falls. He was there married to Miss Amelia Anderson, also a native of Norway, on November 30, 1876. A year later, Mr. and Mrs. Berg purchased forty acres of land in the town of Fremont upon which he erected log buildings. He cleared the land and gradually added the original purchase until he was the owner of a 185-acre farm. The primitive dwelling and out-buildings were later replaced with a beautiful large house and substantial farm buildings. Fifteen years ago Mr. and Mrs. Berg retired and moved to the village of Granton.
