J.M. Olson died at his home in Rhinelander Monday, and the remains are
expected here on the 12:50 train today. He has been many years a member of
the Black River Lodge No. 74, F. & A. M., and the funeral, which is to be
held at the Baptist church this afternoon, will be under the auspices of
this lodge. Rev. B.L. Prescott will preach the sermon. Mr. Olson was one of
the early settlers on Black River, coming here about 1848 or 1849. In early

southeast of this city, until misfortune overtook them. Later, Mr. Olson
re-entered the lumber business [in] the newer pineries north of here, and
has been moderately successful. He leaves a wife, (Olive Edmunds), two sons (Clarence Marcus and Manfred Orville) and two daughters (Mrs.Lilly,Wm. Warren and a younger girl Rissie Belle, living at home.) He has been totally disabled with sickness for a long time.
