try town of Kni, North Jutland, July 10, 1867,
the youngest of five sons of Anders and Sessel
(Jensen) Lund, of whom four are yet living.
His father was a farmer and is yet living in the
land of his birth. His mother died in Denmark
at the age of fifty-nine years.

His youth and early manhood were passed in
the country where he first saw the light. Leav-
ing school at the age of fourteen years he started
out in practical life. His original intention was
to learn the trade of a shoemaker, and for one
year he pursued this purpose. He found it, how-
ever, little suited to his tastes or his physical
constitution, and determined to become a watch-
maker and jeweler. He was accordingly appren-

ticed to this trade when sixteen years old, and
served a term of four years. For a little time he
worked as journeyman, but on reaching the age
of twenty-one years he resolved to emigrate.
This, as has already been said, was in 1891.

He spent a short time in Michigan, but soon
perceived that Chicago was a broader field and
held out brighter prospects for the future. For
three years after taking up his residence in
this city he was employed as a journeyman. At
the end of that period he found himself able,
through industry and prudent economy, to em-
bark in business for himself. His first store was
on Dearborn Street, where he succeeded so well
that in 1898 he removed to his present quarters,
No. 3820 State Street, where he conducts a well-
stocked establishment and does a paying business.

He was married in March, 1897, to Miss Nana



Albech, a lady who, like himself, claims Den-
mark as her fatherland. Their only child is a
son, Arthur C. A.

Mr. Lund is a member of the order of Walhalla

and of the Danish Brotherhood. In religious
faith he is a Lutheran. He has been three years
a naturalised citizen, and sustains the principles
of the Republican party.


RARL J. LINDHOLM is the eldest of the
four children of Ludwig Lindholm and
Maria Erickson, natives of Stockholm,
Sweden. His father is a metal worker and in-
strument maker, who has acquired some celebrity
for the accuracy of his workmanship, among his
patrons being architects of national fame. Both
parents are living, as are also all their progeny.
In his boyhood Karl J. Lindholm attended the
high schools of Stockholm, his course therein be-
ing supplemented by a training in some of the
best private schools of the Swedish capital. At
the age of fifteen years he was apprenticed for a
period of three years to the tailor's trade, and at
the expiration of that time took a clerical position
in a wholesale dry goods store. There he re-
mained two and one- half years, and in 1891 he
left Sweden for America, coming directly to

During the first year of his residence here he
worked at his trade, and then opened a Swedish
book store at No. 5718 Wentworth Avenue, add-
ing cigars and tobacco to his stock of literature.

The venture proved only moderately successful,
and at the end of two years he sold out his stock,
fixtures and good will to engage in the real estate
and insurance business at the corner of Halsted
and Fifty-ninth Streets. In this line of trade he
has continued since that time, although he has
changed his location to No. 5915 Halsted Street,
where he has had an office for the past three and
one-half years. In business circles he enjoys an
enviable reputation, and in private life is highly
esteemed .

In 1896 he led to the altar Elizabeth, daughter
of Axel M. and Anna Erickson. Mrs. Lindholm
is by birth and descent a Swede, although her
parents reside at No. 5951 Sangamon Street,

Mr. Lindholm is a member of King Oscar
Lodge No. 855, Ancient Free and Accepted
Masons; of John Erickson Lodge, No. 361, Inde-
pendent Order of Odd Fellows; and Court Tem-
ple, Independent Order of Foresters. In some
of these lodges he has held office, and in all he
takes deep interest.


(1 OHN JOAKIM MARTENS, a son of Charles
I Martens, was born July 10, 1859, in the old
Q) frame house on section 27, of Leyden Town-
ship, in which were rocked the cradles of so

many members of the Martens family. His early
life, in many respects, was not dissimilar from
that of his brothers and cousins. He attended
the public schools until he was eighteen years



old, and after taking a course of six months' in-
struction at Bryant & Stratton's Business Col-
lege, settled down to work upon his father's
farm. Upon the division of his father's estate he
received eighty acres. This he cultivated two
years, when he sold his land to L,ester Franklin,
retaining only about two acres, with the dwelling
standing thereon. The sale was made in 1890,
and in the succeeding spring (1891) he opened a
general store at Franklin Park. The venture did
not prove successful enough to meet his expecta-
tions, and in 1893 he closed his store and en-
gaged in the business of selling coal and wood,
which he has conducted from that time to the

He married Elizabeth Mary Schmitf, Decem-
ber 22, 1897. Mrs. Martens was born at Har-
lem, Cook County, April 19, 1879. The issue
of the marriage has been one son, born Septem-
ber 10, 1898, and named George Howard.

Mr. Martens was christened and reared in the

communion of the Lutheran Church, but for the
past twenty years has been a member of the First
Presbyterian Church of River Park. He af-
filiates with the Republican party, but is in no
sense an active party worker.

He is a man to whose nature ostentation is
positively repugnant. His tastes are domestic
and his habits methodical. His favorite recrea-
tion is hunting, of which he is devotedly fond and
at which he is usually very successful. During
the permitted seasons, when duty does not call
him to the performance of some required task, he
may usually be seen upon the prairie or in the
woods, with dog and gun, intent upon this pas-
time. He still lives in the old home, situated
scarcely a hundred yards from the rude cabin
built by his grandfather, where he and his
brothers and sisters first looked up into their
mother's eyes. His life is placid, but useful, and
his worth is most thoroughly appreciated by
those who know him best.


J I tlemen whose name appears at the head of
/ I this memoir, is one of those Danish-Ameri-
cans who do honor alike to the land of their
nativity and the country of their adoption. He
is a well known and prosperous blacksmith and
horseshoer, at No. 320 Twenty-sixth Street. He
was born May 27, 1858, at Bedsted, near Thisted,
Denmark, being the son of Neils Christen Ander-
sen, of that place, who followed the same trade.
The elder Andersen is yet living in the old coun-
try, at the age of seventy-two years, after a life
of honorable toil, and having passed through two
wars and served in the army fourteen years. He
is well known and highly esteemed. His wife,
whose maiden name was Sophia Petersen, and

who is yet treading life's pathway by his side,
bore him nine children. Two died in early child-
hood, and of the seven who grew to manhood
and womanhood, five live in America. Annie,
who came to this country eighteen years ago, is
the wife of A. D. Nielsen, and has her home in
Nebraska; Christ resides at West Pullman; Peter,
in Iowa; Maria is now Mrs. Peter Arnstensen, of
Racine, Wisconsin.

Anders Peter is the second in order of birth.
On leaving school he began to learn the trade of
a blacksmith from his father, for whom he worked
four years. He then served an apprenticeship of
three years to a shoemaker. For eight years he
was in business for himself, when he sold out
and emigrated to Canada, settling first at Toron-



to. There he lost the moderate accumulations
gathered through several years of hard work and
self denial, and, shaking the dust of the Domin-
ion from his feet, he came to Chicago, having
but fifty cents in his pocket on his arrival. His
first employment was in a coal yard on North
Water Street, shoveling coal from the dock into
the hold of vessels. After three months he
secured a place in a shoe factory, and two weeks
later a position as a carpenter in the Chicago &
Northwestern Railroad shops. He held this one
year, when he found more congenial work in the
machine shops of the Deeriug Harvester Com-
pany. He remained with that corporation nine
years, and in the year 1894 opened his present
establishment, to which reference has been al-
ready made.

Before leaving Denmark he was united in mar-
riage (in 1878) to Triene Hormiller, a native of
the same place as himself. Mr. and Mrs. Ander-
sen have been blessed with nine children, five of

whom are living: Sophia, Niels, John, Thomas
and Helen, all of whom were born before the
family came to America. Of the four children
who died, three were infants, and one daughter,
Catherine, lived to be fifteen years old. Niels is
in the employ of the Deering Harvester Com-
pany, and John works for A. F. Kern.

Mr. Andersen has been a good father, afford-
ing his children the best opportunities which his
means afforded and better than all else setting
before their eyes the example of an industrious,
honest life. Nor have they failed to appreciate
these advantages, and his pride in them is abun-
dantly justified.

He has a wide acquaintance and extensive
patronage among business men who know his
mechanical skill as well as his moral worth. For
two and a-half years has been a member of
Walhalla, and has held office in the order.
He is also a member of the Knights of Pythias
and of the Knights of the Maccabees.
