About Andrew N. Anderson

Andrew N. Anderson, one of the representative farmers of his neighborhood, owning 98 acres in Section 30, east, Maple Grove Township, was born in Norway, Dec. 10, 1853, son of Iver and Runug (Peterson) Anderson, natives of Norway, who spent the span of their years in that country. Andrew N. was educated in his native land, and in 1873, when twenty years of age, started

out with courage and high resolve to carve his fortunes in the New World.

He landed at Portland, Me., and from there came to this state and located at Janesville. In 1875 he went to Iowa, and worked as a carpenter, but two years later came again to this state and located in Dunn county, where he alternated farm work with lumbering. He bought his present place in 1883, cleared 60 acres, erected a good set of buildings, and has since, for nearly forty years, continued successfully to carry on general farming and dairying, making a specialty of a good grade of Guernsey cattle and Poland-China swine. He found the county a wilderness, still a place of flourishing lumber camps, and has seen it develop into the rich dairy region of the present day. In this development, by building up a good farm, he has had his part.

For some years he has been a member of the school board of his district and has endeavored to give his large family a good

training in study and in work. He was married July 14,1883, to Augusta Johnson, daughter of John and Sophia (Greenquist) Johnson, natives of Sweden, who came to America in 1881, and settled in Maple Grove Township, this county, where the father died July 14, 1896 and the mother March 12, 1899.

In the family there are five children: Anna (deceased), Matilda, Minnie, Justen [Justina] and Augusta. Mr. and Mrs. Anderson have ten children: Ida C. was born March 31, 1884, and is the wife of Even Erickson, of Dallas Village, this county; Rena S. was born Jan. 4, 1886, and is the wife of Bernard Jacobson, of Minnesota; Alfred W was born June 3, 1888, and is farming in Maple Grove Township, this county; John O. was born Dec. 18, 1890, and is in Spokane, Wash.; Walter A. was born Oct. 27, 1893, and is in

North Dakota; Isaac A. was born Oct. 14, 1896, and is farming in Maple Grove Township; Clarance R. was born Oct. 27, 1899, and is at home; Geneva O., born July 14, 1902; Ethel A., born March 6, 1907, and Helen A. born July 16, 1910, are all at home. The family worships at the Norwegian Lutheran Church.
