Obituary of JOHN M. SJOGREN
Obituary – John M. Sjogren

John M. Sjogren, who died in Larned June 24, at 8:30 p.m., was born in Stockholm, Sweden, July 6, 1848. He was 80 years, 11 months and 18 days old at the time of his death. He was confirmed a member of the Lutheran church in childhood and continued in that faith until the end.
He was united in marriage to Anna Bengston in 1876. To this union five children were born, three of whom survive. Hugo F. and John M. Sjogren, Jr., preceded their father in death, and three daughters, Mrs. Charles Gilkison of Larned, Mrs. David Freeburg of Pawnee Rock, and Mrs. Adelia Gates of Santa Anna, Calif., survive him. Others who mourn his death are his widow, ten grandchildren and one great grandchild, and a sister, Mrs. Wilhelmina Lithman of Stockholm, Sweden.
Mr. Sjogren, who was one of Pawnee county’s pioneers, came to this county in 1876, and through all of the trials of the pioneers he prospered. At that time and ever since Mr. Sjogren was known for his sympathy and kindness, always being ready to divide his last sack of flour with a neighbor to keep that neighbor from suffering. Mr. Sjogren was an ideal husband and father, and a wide circle of friends mourn his passing.
