MRS. CHARLOTTE PAGE
Charlotte Anderson was born near Gothenburg, Sweden, on February 1, 1838, and died [23 Jun 1920] at the home of her son, Audolf (sic - Adolph) Page at Grand Island. She was married in 1857 to August Page. To this union were born six sons and six daughters. Two sons and two daughters preceded their mother in death. Those surviving are: John, Will, Audolf and Hurbert Page, Mrs. H. H. Hudnell, Mrs. A.D. Lear, Mrs. Chas. Olsen, and Mrs. Chas. Trobee.
In 1865 Mr. and Mrs. Page came with their family to America and settled in Illinois, removing in 1872 to Nebraska, where they were among the first homesteaders of Hamilton county. Mrs. Page was bereft of her husband twelve years ago, since which time she had made her home among her children.
During the four months preceding her death, she was a sufferer from bodily ailments, but in her last days she gave testimony of her peace with God. Many years ago she united with the Presbyterian church and continued in this relation until she was called to join the Church Triumphant.
The funeral services were held last Thursday morning at 10:00 o'clock at the home of Audolf Page in Grand Island, Rev. Mr. Chadwick, pastor of the M. E. church at Chapman being in charge. The song "God Be With You Till We Meet Again" was sung in compliance with a request made by Mrs. Page shortly before the end came.
Interment was made in the Central City cemetery. ___________
Note: Christened Maximiliana Charlotta, Charlotte was born in Eriksberg, Älvsborg, Sweden, the daughter of Nikolaus "Nils" Andersson and Anna Maria Petersdotter. She and her husband, Johann August Pehrsson, adopted the Page surname after immigrating to the U.S.
Charlotte and August only had five sons. Although they raised and claimed him [to all but the 1900 census taker], Hubert Rudolph Page, b. 29 Dec 1890, Hamilton Co., NE, was illegitimate son of their daughter, Anna, and a biodad whose name is still unknown. _________________
