She was married to August Lindgren in 1869 and they came immediately to the United Stated, spending the first six months in Illinois. They then settled on a farm one mile south of old Kiron and moved into Ida county in the spring of 1883 where they bought the home place, where they have since lived with the exception of two years in Kansas. She was a charter member of the Free Mission church in Hayes township and took the deepest interest in religious worship as long as her health permitted.

She is survived by her husband, four children: Enoch Lindgren of Sioux City; C. W. Lindgren of near Ida Grove; Mrs. Gust Anderson of near Arthur, Mrs. L. Christenson of Ida Grove. There are twenty-four grand children and one great grandson. She has two brothers, Victor Linman, Arthur, and August Linman of Omaha.
