Nils Frederick was born in Olme, Varmland, Sweden to Maria Nilsdotter and Per Westberg (Anderson) . His mother died when he was 14. In 1885, at age 25, he traveled alone to Chicago where other family members had already settled. Frederick appears to have worked as a clerk.

In 1890, Frederick, 30, married Ida Sofia Broman, 22, in Englewood. They had 2 sons (Carl & Ernest) and then a daughter, Ebba. In 1900 Fred was still a clerk, but in 1910 he was an office manager. In 1916, Frederick's wife died. In 1920 he was working as a building contractor.

Frederick was the family genealogist. In 1927 he returned to Sweden and collected information for the first Andersson-Persson-Westberg family tree. Frederick lived with his son, Carl, and family. He died in 1936 at age 75.
