Martin Olson, aged 66, who for
forty years had cleared and farmed a strip of land one mile and a half from Leer, died at 0 p.m. Friday at his farm home on the same property where he had spent the best efforts of his life. During the previous winter, he was stricken with the flu from which he never apparently recovered. He had been ill throughout the present winter.
The funeral will take place at 1 p.m. Tuesday with service at the house, followed by services in the Lutheran Church at Leer, and interment in the Norwegian Cemetery.
In addition to the widow, he is survived by two daughters and three sons: Mrs. Jacob Houck and Mrs. Martin Jensen, both of Alpena, Oscar, Carl and Henry of Leer.
Mr. Olson formerly resided in Alpena and was employed in the sawmill of the Butterfield Lumber company before moving to Leer.
