Religion
Jens Egge was known until his death as a sincere and devout christian man, being converted in the year 1899, following several serious devine callings, particularly thru the death of his first three children. This caused Jens to understand that it was the Lord who was calling. After a period of reformation in which he failed, he finally found way to Calvary's cross, as a helpless sinner needing salvation by grace. This he received through the enlightenment of the Holy spirit and was thusmade happy. Since that time Mr. Egge has been actively engaged in church work. He had a particular passion for his own but also for others, both in the home as well as the foreign field. To the missionary cause he gathered and donated considerable money. Mr. Egge has because of his free churchly views been a faithful friend and member of the Luthern Brethern for many years. He also served as a member of the Luthern Brethen board of trustees several years.
Death
Newspaper obituary: North Prairie, Buxton, was the scene of one of the largest funerals ever held in that community on Sunday, Augest 12th. Upwards if 800 people were then gathered to follow the remains of Jens Egge to his final resting place. Mr. Egge died as the result of injuries receivedin on accident with his binder while harvesting on his own farm at North Prairie. He had just repaired the binder driven by his son which was directly ahead of his and upon starting of that binder the horses attached to his own became frightened and started up. Failing in an attempt to halt them he was caught by the sickle of the binder and wounded badly especially around the legs. He was rushed to the hospital in Mayville and given medical aid but in spute of all efforts to save his life, he died a half an hour later of shock and wounds received.
Death
From "A little History of Jens Egge": The last day he lived, he and Elias a young boy then, were harvesting wheat on the South eighty they had 2 binders with horses on each, and the boy drove first and some little thing out of order, so the boy stopped and his dad went up to see what was the matter and when they had fixed the boy started up driving and the horses behind started up too, before Jens could get back to get the lines. So been lively horses the just went are, so the meal of the binders caught Jens and ???? him off the platform and there he ?????? the teams caught up with the other binder, but then he was cut quite bad, so the boy got the horses tied up, and they had the ... So the boy took him into the Hospital in Mayville and got hold of Dr. Odegard and did what he could for him but he was bleeding inside so he couldn't stop it. So the boy drove home to tell the folks about it, and while Dr. Odegard was with him there, Jens started to talk to the Lord, and he said: is this the way you are going take me home to thee? He said in Norwegian but Dr. Odegard understood it all, so that way he slept in without any strugle, so a little later when the folks came in he had slept in and, and Dr. Odegard told the family all what he had said to the Lord.
