Biography of Carl E. Larson
Saunders County, NE Biographies





Carl E. Larson, who resides on an excellent farm in Richland township, has gained gratifying success as a farmer and is well known throughout the county. He was born on the 19th of April, 1869, in Sweden, of the marriage of Charles J. and Eva (Anderson) Larson. In 1870 the parents came to the United States and homesteaded the south one half of the northwest quarter of section 8, Richland precinct. The father is still living, but the mother died in 1885 and is buried in Swedeburg.

Carl E. Larson was but an infant when brought to this country by his parents and practically his entire life has been passed in this county. He attended the public schools until he was about eighteen years of age and subsequently was for a year a student in Luther College of Wahoo. When twenty years old he began working as a farm hand but after a year he returned home and continued under the parental roof until he was married in 1898. He subsequently rented land of his father for two years, after which he was given an eighty acre tract by his father and he purchased eighty acres from him. He is still farming this quarter section, and his well directed labors yield him a good return annually.

On the 12th of August, 1893, Mr. Larson was united in marriage to Miss Hilda Heurlin, a daughter of A. P. and Nellie (Grahn) Heurlin, natives of Sweden. To this union have been born five children: Agnes, deceased; Arvid F. and Luther, both of whom are assisting their father; Victoria, who is attending Luther College; and Florence, who is attending the public schools.

Mr. Larson is independent in politics, voting for the man rather than the party, and his religious faith is indicated by the fact that he holds membership in the Swedish Lutheran church, whose teachings guide his life.
