Christian Simonson, well known to every person in this neighborhood, and especially so to the old-timers, died at his home in Evansville town, last Wednesday, Nov. 23. Mr. Simenson [sic] was born in Als, Denmark, March 22, 1828. He came to this country when a young man, and lived in Milwaukee, Wis., for several years before moving to Evansville in April, 1868, and has since lived on his farm near this village. His wife died only a little more than two years ago, and the old gentleman leaves three grown up children—Hans, Edward and Miss Lizzie. The funeral took place yesterday afternoon, the long time between death and burial being necessary to get the children here.
