After the services the people followed the remains to the cemetery in Hayes township, where Mrs. Anderson was laid to rest. At the grave the pastor read from John, 5th chapter 25th to 29th verses, and after repeating the Lord's prayer the people departed to their different homes.

The deceased was born on the 26th day of Feb. 1826 in Halland of Sweden. She was married to Anders Borgeson, and nine children, five sons and four daughters, were born to this union.
