Biografi for: Carl Frederik Andersen

Carl F. Andersen, who lived near Center Point, died from the effect of an abscess on the brain, at Sioux City, Mar. 20th. He was taken sick about a month ago and was taken to Sioux City (Iowa) a week later where he was operated upon twice without obtaining relief, death finally coming to relieve him of his pain. The remains were brought home by way of Hooker and the funeral was held last Sunday in the West Lutheran Church, Rev. Bolvig and Rev. Peterson officiating, and his remains were laid to rest in the Lutheran Cemetery. Four of his sons and two of his sons-in-law acted as pallbearers. Over one hundred teams were in the procession.
Mr. Andersen was born in Denmark in 1848. He followed the occupation of a shipbuilder and sailor for a number of years, was married to Carrie Petersen in 1872, and 1873 came to this country, locating in Chicago. Here he worked in the carpenter and tailor trades till 1883 when he came to Turner County and settled on the farm which he has since occupied. He leaves a wife, four daughters, Mrs. Martin Christensen, of Spring Valley, Mrs. L. A. Christensen and Mrs. P. Westergaard, of Center Point, and Mrs. C. P. Andersen, of Freeman, and five sons Praven, Willie, Charley, Eddie and Ary, besides a host of friends to mourn the loss. The heartfelt sympathy of the community goes out to the bereaved family in their loss of a loving husband and father. (Viborg Enterprise -- March 29, 1906
