He was born out-of-wedlock in Sweden. He is listed as Johan Enfrid Danielsson Andersson on his immigration papers. He came with his grandparents to the U.S. at about age 3 in 1884, joining his mother and two uncles who had come to the U.S. in batches since 1880. He lived with his uncle and grandparents in South Dakota and Minnesota until in 1914, when he homesteaded in the Carp township of Lake of the Woods Co., MN area. He left Carp for a time, but by 1933, moved back there for the rest of his life, being called a "Pioneer of the Carp area" in his obituary. He never married. He died in 1951 at age 77.
