John Jacobson

John Jacobson was born at Wisby, Gottland County, Sweden in 1846, and died at Indianapolis, May 5, 1884. Mr. Jacobson left Sweden and came to America in 1869. In 1870 he engaged to C. O. Hilstrom as apprentice in the manufacture of organs. After he had served his time he engaged to Mr. Hilstrom as action maker, and remained so employed until his mind became imparied in the early part of 1884. The deceased had no relative in America to mourn his loss, still his true gentlemanly manners and sober habits had won for him a host of warm friends, among whom were many who could drop a sympathetic tear on his lonely tomb. The beautiful residence that C. O. Hillstrom has lately been remodeling to suit his own tastes, was built by Mr. Jacobson in 1883. This spring he was adjudged insane and taken to the insane asylum at Indianapolis, where he remained until his death, which was caused by exhaustion from acute mania. His remains arrived here on the west mail train last Tuesday evening. The funeral was held at the Swedish Lutheran church on the following day at 2 o'clock, after which the remains were placed in the Chesterton cemetery.
