Death of Pehr A. Lindskoog( 1845 - 22 Oct 1909)

Mr. Lindskoog died at his late home near here about 1 o’clock a. m., Friday, 22 Oct 1909. The apparent cause of his death was an internal tumor which caused him intense suffering at intervals excepting the last day when he fell into a slumber from which he did not awake.

Pehr August Lindskoog was born in Älfsborgs Län, Västergötland, Sweden on 7 June 1845. He came to America to Princeton, Illnois in 1869. He moved to Chicago in 1873 and from there to his late home in Iowa in 1882. He was married at Princeton, Illinois in 1877 to Anna Gerta Andersdotter Lundell, who with five sons and two daughters survive him. He is mourned also by his brother John of Chicago and many relatives and a large circle of friends.

The funeral was held Saturday afternoon, 23 Oct 1909 at the Hayes Mission church of which the deceased was a leading member. It was conducted by O. F. Dahlberg of Odebolt assisted by Revs. Johnson of Chicago, Andrews of Fort Dodge and Winden of Harcourt who were here to a Mission meeting.

The interment took place at the cemetery northwest of the church.

In a glowing tribute to Mr. Lindskoog’s memory, Rev Dahlberg says "Mr. Lindskoog was one of our mission congregation supporting pillars having been a member from the beginning. He leaves a large vacancy in his home and church and we miss him greatly now when he has been taken from us. Mr. Lindskoog had by his upright life, which speaks for itself, won every ones respect and condifence.

"He fell asleep in the faith of his Saviou to whom he often prayed for deliverence. He is now safe in the harbor where storm rages not. May the good and faithful husband and father now mourned by those so near to him rest in peace until the resurrection morning, wh shall see him again.

"Our friend sleepeth, but shall soon be awakened by the Savior to a more glorious life with Him."
