Ole Peter Borg ~ Submitted from Borg Genealogy by Mike Borg

Article written in "The Richield Reaper" on Thursday, November 30, 1933. Funeral Held at Salina for Old Richfield Resident

The following item from the Salina Sun of November 24 will be of interest to Reaper readers.
Ole Peter Borg, a resident of Salina for the past fifteen years, and who helped "blaze the trails" of Sevier County and southern Utah as one of the early pioneers, is dead at the age of 86 years. Mr. Borg passed away at the home of his son, J.A. Borg, last friday evening at 7 o'clock, death resulting from infirmities incident to old age. Death was expected, as the faithful old pioneer lay in a state of coma for three days, and members of the family were grouped at the bedside when the end came peacefully.
Mr. Borg was born at Lingby Sweden, October19,1847, the son of Peter Hansen and Ingra Jensen Borg. He came to America at the age 17 and joined his parents at Mt. Pleasant. Later he moved to Richfield, Where he made his home until 15 years ago, when he came to Salina. While residing in Richfield, and during the Indian troubles, he supervised flour mills, while the older settlers were out battling the Indians. He took up the harness business, mastering the art of making high - class harness. He had the distinction of erecting the first business house on Main street in Richfield, and he helped to build the first canal that carried water to the fields and homes in and around Richfield.
He was devoted to his religious belief and served as president of the elders quorum for many years. He was kind, loved his home and neighbors, and was always regarded as one of the stalwart leaders and citizens.
He was the father of 20 children, eleven of whom survive: Five daughters, Mrs. Nelson Baker, Salt Lake; Mrs. W. S. Young, Helena, Mont.; Mrs. Adolph Nielson, Richfield; Mrs. E.S. Wilkinson, Redondo Beach, Calif.; Miss Edna Borg, Los Angeles; Six sons, Alma Borg, Nampa, Idaho; J.A. Borg, Salina; D.E. Borg, Gunnison; Eugene Borg, Helena, Mont.; H.E. Borg, Bozeman, Mont.; A.F. Borg Sigurd. One Brother, James Borg, Salt Lake, and 54 grandchildren also survive.
Simple, but impressive funeral services were held for mr. Borg at 1 a'clock Monday at the First Ward chapel, with Bishop T.L. Black officiating. G.W. Coons of Richfield was the principal speaker.
Following the services in Salina, all that was mortal of Ole Peter Borg was taken to Richfield and placed in the family burial plot.
Due to the fact that some of the sons and daughters live at distant points only three sons, J.A. Borg of Salina, D.E. Borg of Gunnison and A.F. Borg of Sigurd, were present at the funeral.
