Birth: Feb. 15, 1853, Sweden
Death: Aug. 18, 1934
Halifax
Nova Scotia, Canada

The son of Andrew and Annie Anderson, Andrew (Anders) married Christina Whiting on August 5, 1876.

Andrew Anderson was said to have worked on ships when he was young. The story varies, but somehow he met Christina C. Whiting on board ship - and love and marriage followed. Their daughter Stella (Christina Bernice Anderson Kennedy) said they met on a ship Coming from south America.

After marriage they settled in St. Margaret's Bay, Halifax County, N.S. to raise their family. They bought a farm there. Andrew was also caretaker of the one room school house and the church. He also held the job of putting the outgoing mail bag on the post for the trainman to scoop off and drop off the incoming.

The farm was across from the rail tracks and up the hill. In the spring blueberries were plentiful just up beyond the farm house.
