Olson, John H. (26 Dec. 1875 - 14 Jan. 1939)

The death of John H. Olson, 63, pioneer Abbotsford blacksmith, whose body was found in his home Saturday noon, was caused by an apoplectic stroke, ruled Coroner P. C. Ludovic, who was called from Neillsville to investigate.

Mr. Olson, who had been living alone in a one-room hut next to his blacksmith shop, was born at Batavia, New York on Dec. 26, 1875. He was married, but had been residing alone since being divorced four years ago.

Surviving besides his divorced wife, Mrs. Hannah Olson, Abbotsford, are seven children, Mrs. Chas. (Christina) Ulrich, Denver, Colo.; Mrs. Floyd (Helen) Emery, Reedsburg; and Mrs. Ivan (Adeline) Hopper, Norman, Lorraine, Regina and Audrey, all of Abbotsford, Wis. Also surviving are three brothers, Walter Olson, Denver, Colo.; Albert Olson, Ft. Atkinson, and Hugh Olson, Waupaca, and one sister, Mrs. Rose Cross, of Solon Springs.
