ANDREW E. PETERSON
Andrew E. Peterson was born in Sweden, December 16, 1865, and died at
his home three miles north of Rome, January 15, 1916. He came to America in
1882, settling in Henry county near Mt. Pleasant, where he resided, with the
exception of a few years spent in Nebraska, for the remainder of his life.
March 1, 1898, he was married to Miss Anna Wyse, two sons being born to
them, Wyse now aged sixteen and Devere aged seven. He was a loving husband
and father and his loss is deeply deplored by his family and friends.
Besides the wife and family there remain to mourn, an aged mother, four
brothers, Carl Max, John and Justus, all residing in Omaha, Edward Peterson
of Mt. Pleasant, three sisters, Mrs. Jessie Woosley and Mrs. Alice Nelson of
Omaha, and Mrs. Maude Homes of San Francisco. There are also a large number
of other relatives and friends.
Deceased was brought up in the Lutheran faith. August 9, 1914, he united
with the Rome Baptist church where he continued a faithful and esteemed
brother until his death. He suffered many years from a disturbing type of
rheumatism but bore his pains patiently and uncomplainingly. He was a quiet
man, a good friend and neighbor, held in high esteem by all who knew him.
Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Frank Weston on Jan. 17th. A
short service was held at the home then the sorrowing company repaired to
Bethel chapel, Green Mound, where church services were held. A large
congregation was present and there were many beautiful floral expressions.
The pallbearers, nephews of the deceased, were Carl, Harry and Earl
Peterson, John W. Swan, Ira Graber and Arthur Wyse. The singers were: Miss
Nellie Pixley, Mrs. Minnie Coleman, Messrs. Mahlon Harshberger and F.H.
Weston, with Miss Celia Luellon as accompanist. A number of relatives from a
distance were present and interment was in the Green Mound cemetery.
