S. A. LUND, manager of the Eau Claire Lumber Company's meat market. Was born in Southern Norway, Nov. 19, 1832, and came from there to Cambridge, Dane Co., in 1852. He lived there until he came to Eau Claire, May 7, 1857. He is the oldest Norwegian settler now living in this county. He at first engaged in general work; in the Summer of 1857, he located a farm in the town of Pleasant Valley, which he still owns. He lived on his farm until 1858, when he commenced working for the Eau Claire Lumber Company. He was superintendent in the different departments until 1860, when he returned to his farm for eight or nine years; then, probably in 1868, he re-entered the employ of the Eau Claire Lumber Company, taking charge of their meat market, moving his family into his new house in the city in the Fall of 1878. He was married in the town of Pleasant Valley, Eau Claire Co., in the Winter of 1857, to Christina Erickson, who was born in Norway. They have one child living, Frank O., aged nineteen years; and have lost two children, Jacob A., who died at the age of twenty years, and Eva, who died aged seven years three months and seven days.
