Rev. Arvid Lagerquist Family

Rev. Sigesmund Gustaf Arvid Svantesson Lagerquist (1871-1941) emigrated from Eskilstuna Fors parish in Sweden in 1890. He attended the Morgan Park Seminary in Chicago and married Josephine (1870-~1928) who had emigrated from Sweden in 1888. They raised 8 children: Edgar, Roy, Harry, Elvira, Barthal, Wilbur, Gordon, and Paul. He had pastorates in Kansas City, Chanute, Kiron, and Omaha before being asked to be state missionary for Swedish Baptists in Iowa. Known as a strong leader, he was pastor when the 1908 church was built. Arvid and Josephine both died in Des Moines.
