Biography of Grant Nordstrom
Saunders County, NE Biographies





Grant Nordstrom, who is successfully engaged in farming in Richland township, was born in this county on the 9th of July, 1882. His father, Swan Nordstrom, was born on the 9th of March, 1887, in Sweden and attended school in that country until he reached the age of fifteen years. From that time until 1870 he worked as a farm hand but in the year mentioned he emigrated to the United States and came to Saunders county, where he homesteaded eighty acres of land. He operated his farm and also worked upon the railroad for five years. Subsequently he devoted his entire time to agricultural pursuits, but in 1908, feeling that he had accumulated a competence, he retired to Ceresco, where he is still living. His religious faith is that of the Swedish Mission church and his political allegiance is given to the democratic party. He was married in Sweden to Miss Lena Pearson.

Grant Nordstrom was reared in this county and attended the public schools until he was eighteen years of age. He has since devoted his time and energy to agriculture and is now successfully operating one hundred and sixty acres of excellent land in Richland township. He is at once practical and progressive, and his well directed labors result in good crops.

Mr. Nordstrom was married on the 8th of March, 1906, to Miss Eva Robinson, a daughter of Charles and Jane Robinson, natives of Tennessee, who are now living near Ashland, this county. To this union have been born five children, Clifford, Irene, Orville, Vernon and Cayman.

Mr. Nordstrom votes independently and takes a keen interest in everything relating to the public welfare. His religious faith is that of the Swedish Mission church. His entire life has been passed in this county and the fact that those who have known him from early boyhood are his best friends is proof of his worth as a man.
