    Mrs. Larson of Mediapolis Is Taken by Death
    The obituary of Christiana "Josephine" (Brodd/Larson) Anderson. Josephine Brodd was born in Salina, Iowa, on November 23, 1863. Her parents were Andrew W. and L. M. (Persdotter) Brodd. September 6, 1883, she married John August Larson in Burlington, Iowa. He was accidentally shot to dead March 10, 1898, while testing a new shotgun with friends. There were four young daughters in the family at the time of his death, and one other who had died I infancy in 1894. Josephine remarried in 1915 to Frank "Oscar" Anderson, who was not mentioned in her obituary, so perhaps that relationship did not end well. He was born in 1876 in Sweden and died July 6, 1941.
