Matilda L Anderson's father was Andrew Anderson of Sweden per her grandson Leonard Anderson. Source Flynn-Lundberg Co history sheet

Mathilda married Johan Alfred Anderson on 1/1/1873 in Chicago. They had six children, all died before her. Her husband Johan died over 50 years before her.

Her son was William F Anderson 1877-1911. Her daughter was Amanda Albertina Anderson Hyden 1881-1915; her children were Norval and Kenneth Hyden.

Her obituary is an interesting immigrant story of the 1852 journey from Sweden to America of 3 months, 2 weeks and 3 days. The ship anchored at Fall River, Mass. The family came by freight train to Chicago. Her mother died when she was three. How hard life was for this family ...

Her brother Johnny Anderson was the last Civil War veteran in Westchester Twp.
