Spring Valley Sun, July 13, 1933
Hogan Jacobson was born to Mr. and Mrs. Lars Jacobson Sept. 12, 1857, in Alvdal, Norway. He came to America with his parents in 1867 and located in the town of Spring Lake, where he lived until he reached manhood.
For several years he worked at Wildwood and around Glenwood City. Some forty years ago he bought a farm in Spring Lake, which he owned at the time of his death.
Mr. Jacobson was a single man; he made his home with his brother Jacob and family until they moved to Spring Valley, and since then he has lived with his nephews, Arthur and Henry, on the J. Jacobson farm. He had always enjoyed good health until a couple of years ago, when his strength began to fail and the extreme heat of the last three summers seemed to weaken him. He was, however, up and around until the very last. Wednesday morning, July 5, he suffered a heart attack from which he died.
The funeral was held from the Jacobson home and the Spring Lake church Saturday, July 8, Rev. Berven officiating. Burial was made in the Spring Lake cemetery.
He leaves two brothers - Jerry of Spring Lake and Jacob of Spring Valley; also three sisters - Mrs. Mary Anderson and Mrs. Peter Folden, both of Spring Lake, and Mrs. John Ryan of Glenwood City; besides a large number of nieces and nephews and many distant relatives.
