John Strom 1835-1904

Mr. John Strom was born in his native land, Sweden, June the 27th 1835. He came to America in the year 1868. He married Miss Carolina J. Bergman, at Springfield Mo. November 17, 1871, and with his bride came the same year to a farm one and half miles from Swedeborg, Mo. where he has ever since resided.

He died on the 23rd day of January, at 10:30 a.m. 1904. He leaves a wife, one married and two single sons and one single daughter. A son and daughter have preceded him to the spirit land.

The departed was a member of the Lutheran Church in his own country, but was never connected with a church here. He lived an honest, industrious upright life, and in the absence of a minister has conducted funerals.

He was a good neighbor, and was honored and respected by all who knew him. He will be missed by many friends.

Funeral services were held at the home on January 25, at 11: a.m. 1904, by J.R. Blunt of Richland, after which the body was laid to rest in the city of the dead near his home.

*He was a member of the Richland Lodge of Ancient Order of United Workmen and carried a policy of $2000 which will provide for his wife and children.
