Johnson, Ole (March 31, 1844 - May 3, 1911) 

Ole Johnson was born in Norway on March 31, 1844, and died at his home on East 6th Street Wednesday afternoon, May 3rd.  He had been sick but a very short time and the news of his death came as a great surprise to his friends.  Mr. Johnson had been a resident of this city for many years, being one of the city’s oldest residents.  A number of years ago he was employed at the O’Neill house, later keeping a small hotel himself.  He was at all times industrious, frugal and painstaking and his quiet demeanor and courtesy made many friends for him in this city.  He had been twice married, both of which helpmates preceded him in death.  He was the father of nine children, seven of whom are living.  They are Hans, Albert, John, Tillie, Anna, Aletta, Ole, all living at home with the exception of Albert of Fresno, Cal., and John of Olean, N.Y.  The funeral was held Sunday afternoon from the Congregational Church and was held under the auspices of his lodge, the Modern Woodmen.
