"EMMET COUNTY PIONEER HAS PASSED ON
A. O. Myhre Died at Home in This City, August 15 
CAME TO EMMET CO. 1865
A Merchant in Estherville For Many Years--Retired From Labors 1912
A grand old man has passed to his reward. Death came Tuesday afternoon at about 1 o'clock August 15th , and claimed for his own Mr. Andrew O. Myhre, one of the pioneer merchants and most highly respected citizens of the community. There was never a better man ever lived and no greater Christian gentleman. He was a splendid husband, an indulgent father, a kind and considerate neighbor and a public spirited and generous citizen.
He came to Estherville more than half a century ago, in 1865, and has resided in Estherville for over thirty-one years, most of that time being engaged in the mercantile business until he retired and turned his business over to his son Theodore, and son-in-law, C. L. Jeglum.
Mr. Myhre was until the early part of this year very prominent in Masonic circles. He was a consistent member of North Star lodge No. 447, Jeptha Chapter, R. A. M. and a charter member of Esdraelon Commandery No. 52 K. T. He loved the order and his greatest pleasure was to meet with his brethren. For years he was a conspicuous figure at Temple Park and he always looked forward to the annual conclaves with the greatest of pleasure. He adhered strictly to the principles of Masonry, which are brotherly love and the practice of the Christian virtue. No greater endorsement or recommendation of a man's life can be given.
We always admired Mr. Myhre. In him we saw the real type of splendid manhood, a man true to his friends and his convictions. His life was a benediction and his death a misfortune.
Up until about three years ago he had been in almost perfect health, and it looked as if he was going to enjoy many years of retired life in comfort, but at that time he became afflicted with gall stones but on account of his years it was not thought advisable for him to undergo an operation. From that time he had periodical attacks and each successive attack gradually weakened his constitution and his powers of resistance and on Tuesday he answered the final summons.
Funeral services will be held at the home at 2 o'clock and from the Estherville Lutheran church at 2:30 o'clock Friday afternoon, the services to be in charge of Rev. S. A. Berge. As a fitting tribute and in honor of his memory the business houses will be closed between the hours of two o'clock and three-thirty on that day.
Andrew O. Myhre was born in Vang, Valders, Norway, on October 8, 1838. In the spring of 1864 he came to the United States and in the fall of the following year he came to Emmet county and settled on a homestead near Ryan Lake, in High Lake township, having driven through with his family from Neenah, Wis. He remained on the farm until 1881 when he moved to Estherville and engaged in the general merchandise business. He continued in business here until 1874 when he moved to Lyle, Minn., and entered the mercantile business. He was there until 1891 when he moved back to Estherville, the town of his first adoption. He again engaged in the mercantile business until a few years ago when he retired.
In 1861 he was united in marriage in Norway to Miss Aaste Lund. To this union two sons and two daughters were born. Mrs. Myhre passed away in Minneapolis on September 15, 1902, and was buried in Oak Hill cemetery of this city.
There are left to mourn the death of this good man, his wife who faithfully ministered unto him during his illness, his two sons Dr. O. G. Myhre of St. Louis, Theodore Myhre of Estherville, his two daughters, Mrs. C. L. Jeglum and Mrs. H. W. Cox of Estherville, ten grandchildren and one great grandchild besides other relatives and many friends. (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, Iowa, August 16, 1922)
A.O. Myher [Myhre] A Pioneer Settler Passes Away
Andrew O. Myhre one of Emmet Counties most highly respected citizens and one of Estherville's pioneer business men passed away at his home in this city shortly after one o'clock on Tuesday. Mr. Myhre who was eighty three years of age at the time of his death has been ill to some extent for the past few years. His last illness dates back to about June the second. Since that time however he has visited with his son Dr. O. G. Myhre in St. Louis, Mo., and only the first part of July he made a trip into Minnesota, by Auto with his wife and his son Theo Myhre. He was there but a few days when he returned home and his health has been failing since that time.
Mr. Myhres friends in this city are simply numbered by those who are his acquaintances. Everyone thought and spoke well of him. While he was not a man to push himself forward in the least he was always looking for the opportunity of being of assistance to some one else. He was a great donator to charity and missions but no one who was not in lose touch with him would ever find this out. For sixteen years he was city treasurer and he was urged at that time to retain the office still longer. He was a most excellent business man and liberal in his dealings with all. He was at all times a great friend of labor, and hundreds of his close admirers are among that class of people.
Mr. Myhre was born in Norway on October the 8, 1838. He was married in that county on October the 19th 1862 to Aaste T. Lund. On May 27th 1864 they came to America to make their home and settled at Beloit, Wis. He remained there or in that vicinity until they moved to Emmet County. In October 1865 they settled on a Homestead on Section Two of High Lake Township. There they remained until the Grass hopper pestilence drove them out about three years later. They then resided at Lyle, Minnesota. On August 21st the family moved to Estherville and Mr. Myhre engaged in the General Merchandise business. He was an active business man here about thirteen years ago when he sold the business to his son Theo Myhre and his son-in-law Carl Jeglum. There were eight children born to his first union, four of whom are still living. Some years ago his wife passed away, and on Sept. 23rd 1903 he was united again in marriage to an old time acquaintance, Mrs. Mina Woll, who has cared for him through his many illnesses of the past few years.
Mr. Myhre was a devout Christian and a member of the Norwegian Lutheran Church. He was deeply interested in Masonry having passed through all of the degrees and has filled many of the official positions in the order, to that of Emminent Commander.
There remains to mourn his death a beloved wife, two sons, Theo. Myhre of this city and Dr. O. G. Myhre of St. Louis, Mo., and two daughters, Mrs. Carl Jeglum and Mrs. Harvey Cox, both of this city. The funeral services will be held at two o'clock from the home and at two-thirty from the Church on Friday afternoon, the Rev. S. A. Berge officiating. The business houses of the city will be closed during the service. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, August 16, 1922
