In Response To: Knut Herbrandson Trustem death and burial (Stacey Lunsford)

I located an obituary for you. Even though the obituary says the date of death was November 6th, it was actually Tuesday evening, January 6th of 1903. It looks like he is buried in the Somber cemetery. Hope this helps.

July 9, 1827 --- January 6, 1903

Mr. Knud H. Trustem, an old and honored citizen of Bristol township, died Tuesday evening, November 6th [should be January 6th] and was buried from the Synod church of Somber, Saturday last, Rev. A. J. Torgerson officiating. Mr. Trustem was born in Norway, July 9, 1827, came to America in 1852, and after residence of four years in Rock county, Wis., came to Worth county in 1856, and settled on a quarter section in Bristol township, of which be made a splendid farm and where he lived in contentment and reasonable prosperity for the remainder of his useful life. He was married to Caroline Anderson, also a native of Norway, in 1852. Prior to her death in 1880 she bore him fourteen children, of whom all but one, we think, grew to active enterprising manhood or womanhood and most of whom are still numbered among the sturdiest residents of this county. In October 1881, Mr. Trustem married a sister of his first wife Isabel Anderson, who was twenty-three years his junior, and who survives him. She also bore him several children and the number of his grand and great grandchildren would make a very respectable church congregation. The deceased was a good man, a consistent member of Concordia church from the date of its organization over forty years ago. Despite the severity of the weather his funeral services were very largely attended people coming from many miles around.
