    Died 15 Apr 1942  Duluth, Saint Louis, Minnesota Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • From John Lilyquist:

      He died in Duluth at the age of 82 and is buried in Duluth's Park Hill Cemetery. His death certificate says he died on 15 April 1942 of acute nephritis at his son Adolph's house; Route 1 Box 118, Saginaw, Grand Lake Township. He was a retired farmer. The funeral was through Fred Olson Mortuary. Adolph was listed as the informant of the death. A note attached to the certificate on 11 May 1942, signed by Dr. D.F. Pennie, says "No chronic nephrites was perfectly well before last illness - I think it was a "strep" infection."
    Notes 
    • Prepared by John Lilyquist:

      Duluth City Directories show an Olaf Abrahamson, laborer, living at Polk and 69th Avenue West in 1894-95, 1818 West 3rd Street in 1895-1898, at 200 Garfield in 1898-1900, and at 1705 Piedmont Avenue in 1901-1904. He is listed as a laborer (for the St. P & D RR in 1898-1899 and the NP RR in 1900) and a teamster in 1902-1903. On December 2, 1904 , the family moved to an 80 acre farm on the south side of the Samuelson Road, about halfway between the Ugstad and Lindahl Roads, west of what is now the airport extension. The 1900 US Census says he is renting at 200 Garfield Avenue, that he is a day laborer, and that he reads, writes and speaks English. Christian "Inegerbertson", not a citizen of the US, is also living with the family. He is able to read, write, and speak English. The 1910 Census has the family in Canosia Township. The 1920 Census has him, wife Christiana, and boarder Hans Engebritsen (her brother) living on the County Workfarm, near son Adolph
