Title Anderson, Emil
Description Obituary: Anderson, Emil


Emil Anderson of Colvill met with an accident Sunday morning which caused his death. He was after a bear which was killing sheep and committing other depredations. With him was Fred Swanson. He fell over a log and the gun was accidentally discharged, the ball passing through his shoulder and severing an artery. Mr. Swanson walked two miles for help, and when he returned he could not at first locate the wounded man. Repeated calls were finally answered by the victim of the accident, and a stretcher was then improvised and Mr. Anderson was carried home. Medical aid which had been summoned could do nothing as an artery had been severed. He was conscious right up to the time of death.
Emil Anderson was born in Kilinge, Walo, Sweden, Oct. 24, 1882. He came to this country in 1901, and had been a resident of Cook county for 17 years. He leaves a father and brother and two sisters in Sweden, and two uncles, John and Charles Erickson.
The funeral was held Tuesday, the service being conducted by Rev. Mr. Jonson of Chicago. Interment was made in the Grand Marais cemetery.
