From the St. Charles (Illinois) Chronicle, 22 September 1905:
Birthday Surprise Given August Nord August Nord was given a surprise party Saturday by us children and friends, who gathered to help celebrated his 77th birthday anniversary. Mr. Nord is an old resident of St. Charles, coming here in 1853. He was presented with a purse containing a nice sum of money.
