Mr. Lund was born October 1st, 1856, in Stjordalen, near Throndhjem, Norway, and would have been 79 years old had he lived to another birthday.

He came to America with his parents when eight years old, settling in Goodhue county, Minnesota, where they lived a few years, moving to Elk Point, South Dakota. When he was 22 years old, in 1878, he came to this county [Lac Qui Parle] and homesteaded the farm on which he has since lived and where he died. In February, 1883, he was married to Miss Sophie Klefsaas, who survives him.

Nine children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Lund, five of whom are surviving. They are Robert of Corinth, North Dakota, Mrs. Esther Dove, Adolph, Silas and Gustav, all of Lake Shore township.

There were 11 children in the family of Mr. Lund's parents, of whom only one is now surviving. She is Mrs. Gjertine Peterson of Twin Falls, Idaho, and with the passing of Gunder Lund, Sr., is the last of a large family.
