    Anne Gurine Olsdatter, was sister to the nine Tover brothers who settled on Puget Island in the early 1900's. A few months after arrival, the family moved to Maury Island, where they rented a small house and Alfred worked on the shipbuilding dry dock at Dockton for a few years. They began buying land as soon as possible and eventually built a large house, one that was designed by Anna. Their first years of farming involved a cow, vegetables, hay and chickens. Later, as the size of their farm grew, they began raising fruit, including cherries, gooseberries, loganberries, and currants. Still later, their farm specialized in strawberries. Alfred became a U. S. citizen in 1913. When he became naturalized, so did his family. Their last name was changed from Johansen to Johnsen, and Karen's (child) name became Carrie. Two sons were born on Vashon Island to Anne and Alfred: Alfred (Freddie) in 1904 and Donald in 1916, bringing the number of children to five.
