Mr Anders Johan Andersson, 39, was born 21 January 1873, the son of Kristina Lovisa Andersson from Årtesmåla, Horn, Kisa.

Anders worked as a farmer at Kättestorp farm, Kisa, Östergötland, Sweden. He was married to Alfrida and they had five children: Ebba, Ellis, Ingeborg, Sigrid and Sigvard. They were quite well off but still decided to emigrate, tempted to America by Ernst Danbom who was married to Alfrida's sister Anna.

Anders and Alfrida were travelling from Kättestorp to the home of Anna's sister Mrs Andrew Zakrisson, Hartcourt St., Sturgeon creek, Saint James, Winnipeg, Canada. Other sources give the address as Stanton, Iowa so it is likely that they were going to stay with the Danbom family for a time.

The Andersson and Danbom families were accompanied by Anna Nysten from Farsbo farm outside Kisa. She was the only survivor of the company. Anders' body was never found.

Mansion House Fund paid 875:52 Kr (£48) to mother, 912 (£50) to seven siblings. 456:50 Kr damage claims paid to mother 25 August 1914.
