The Dayton Review: June 28, 1917
Christen Gustava Swenson was born in Forrose, Saby Socken, Jonkopingslan, Sweden, June 30, 1858, and passed away at the home of her brother, C T Swenson, south of town, June 20, 1917, aged 59 years, 10 days. She came to this country with her parents in 1868, settling north of Pilot Mound, where she had since lived. She is survived by a sister, Mrs. Manda Carlina Sandborg of Clear Lake, Wisconsin, and two brothers, J.A. Swenson of Albert City, Iowa, and C.T. Swenson of this community. She was a faithful member of the Mission Church, and lived devoted to her Master. Her funeral was held last Saturday from the Pilot Mound Mission church, Rev. Stenbock of Sloan, conducting the services, and her remains interred at the Linn cemetery. A host of lifelong friends of the family sympathize with the bereaved family in their sorrow.
