    History Per Anderson was evidently quite a wealthy landowner in Sweden. After marrying Karna Nilsdotter, they eventually moved to Vä and after some time travelled to the "large land in the West [America]" where countless descendants are now located. They first came to Iowa in about 1864, but stayed there only a short time before going to Minnesota where they received a homestead grant from the government. This was near Dassel, Minnesota [Lake Elizabeth, Kandiyohi County, according to the 1880 census], and they farmed there until about 1883 when they moved to Minneapolis.
    On arriving in this country, Per changed his name to Peter Anderson and added an "X" for a middle initial. Karna changed her name to Carrie and called her maiden name Nelson.
    Their first three children were born in Sweden, Hannah was born on the ship crossing the Atlantic Ocean, and the rest were born in America.  [3
