Birth: Jan. 21, 1873
Death: Apr. 15, 1912

RMS Titanic victim. www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/bio/p/3rd/andersson_aj.shtml indicates the following information:

Mr. Anders Johan Andersson, 39, was born 21 January 1873, the son of Kristina Lovisa Andersson from Artesmala, Horn, Kisa, Sweden. Anders worked as a farmer at Kattestorp farm, Kisa, Ostergotland, Sweden. He was married to Alfrida Brogren and they had five children: Ebba, Ellis, Ingeborg, Sigrid and Sigvard. They were quite well off but still decided to emigrate, tempted to America by Ernst Danbom who was married to Alfrida's sister, Anna. Anders and Alfrida were travelling from Kattestorp to the home of Anna's sister, Mrs. Andrew Zakrisson, Hartcourt St., Sturgeon Creek, Saint James, Winnipeg, Canada. Other sources give the address as Stanton, Iowa, Ernst Danbom's home. So it is likely that they were going to stay with the Danbom family for a time. The Andersson and Danbom families were accompanied by Anna Nysten from Farsbo farm outside Kisa. She was the only survivor of the company. Anders' body was never found. The Mansion House Fund paid 875.52 Kr (48 English pounds) to his mother, 912 Kr (50 English pounds) to seven siblings and 456.50 Kr damage claims were paid to his mother on 25 August 1914.
