Mrs. Mattilda Anderson, 77, a resident of this district for the past 42 years, died suddenly at her home near Ice Lake Friday evening at 7:30 o'clock after a long illness.
Her demise takes from the district one of its oldest settlers, Mrs. Anderson and her husband coming here 42 years ago from Commonwealth with the first homesteaders. She had resided here ever since that time, Mr. Anderson dying 22 years ago.
The deceased is survived by four sons and three daughters, Alex and William Anderson of Bates, Herman Anderson of Milwaukee, Mrs. Thad Waite, Mrs. Olaf Mattson, and Mrs. Andrew Erickson of Iron River. Eleven grand-children, three great grand-children, and a brother in Sweden survive.
Funeral services will be held from the home of Mrs. Anderson's daughter Mrs. Thad R. Waite, 21 Elm street and interment in the Bates cemetery. Awaiting a call from a son in Milwaukee, the time of the funeral has not been set.

Gustaf Anderson (born in 1847) and his wife, Mathilda (born in 1849) were both born in Dalarna, Sweden. They were married there and had five children: Axel (born in 1871), Anna (born in 1874), Arvid (born in 1876), Hannah (born in 1878), and Herman (born in 1879). In 1883 they decided to try their luck in America. They settled in Commonwealth, Wisconsin for a couple of years, were Bertha was born in 1884.
They heard of the nice, big pine trees in Section 3 in Bates Township, and Gustaf staked out a homestead there in 1885. After clearing a little land and building a cabin, he moved his family to Bates, where three more children were born: William (born in 1886), Irving (also called Arvid, born in 1888), and Gust (born in 1892). In the early years, Gustaf and his sons logged the pine trees on the homestead, and Gustaf and his son Axel worked on the roads in Bates. He was Township Highway Commissioner in 1890.
In the winter of 1887, Arvid was killed by a falling tree limb. There was talk about putting his body in the attic to keep it cold and safe from wild animals until the spring thaw. In 1903, their youngest son, Gust, only 11 years old, accidentally shot himself while hunting (or crawling under a fence while carrying a gun) and he died. In 1904 Gustaf Sr. died at the age of 57 from a broken neck after falling from scaffolding during barn construction. William (Wille) stayed on at the homestead until shortly before he died in 1965. He never married. Mathilda lived there for several years also, but moved to Ice Lake Road a few years before her death in 1926.
Axel went to Sweden in 1893 and came back with his new wife, Augusta. They settled on a part of the homestead and had two children: Herbert (born in 1894) and Helen (born in 1904). Axel was Overseer of Highways for Bates Township in 1902, and son Herbert in the 1920's. Helen died in a fire in 1923 at her uncle Arvid Anderson's home. Augusta died in 1936, Axel in 1938, and Herbert in 1950.
Anna married Andrew Erickson (born in 1864) of Bates. They were married for over 50 years and spent most of their lives in Bates. They had one daughter, Edna (born in 1900), and an adopted grandson. Edna married Einar Olson and they lived in Bates. Anna died in 1955, and Andrew in 1954.
Hanna married Thad Waite (born in 1879) in 1899 and they had three children, three grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. Thad died in 1955 and Hannah in 1965. Their daughter, Agnes Eckart (born in 1902), and her son Kenneth and family have lived in Bates most of their lives.
Herman married Cecelia Sunn, and they had two children. They lived in iron River most of their married life. Herman died in 1948 and Cecelia in 1955.
Bertha married Olaf Mattson, and they had two children, seven grandchildren, and 17 great-grandchildren. Bertha lived in Bates all her life, and Olaf lived there after his marriage to Bertha. He died in 1943 and Bertha in 1957.
Irving (called Arvid) married "Ella" Krans and they had seven children, 12 grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren. Arvid and Ella lived in Bates, and their son Eugene and his family came back to Bates to live.
