CHARLES A. ANDERSON. A name belonging to a largely connected and highly honored family of Sweden -- the Andersons -- is borne by Charles A. Anderson, a farmer of section 14 of Jackson township, Porter county, Indiana, and in his life he has proven a worthy descendant, upholding with dignity the worthy name.
He was born in Sweden on September 2, 1859, his parents being John and Caroline (Nelson) Anderson. Both of his parents were born in Sweden and grew to maturity there. The senior Anderson died there in 1860, and twelve years later his widow, with the children, came to the United States. They located at Chesterton, Indiana, where Mrs. Anderson lived until her death, in 1900.
The subject of his sketch, Charles A. Anderson, was thirteen years old when he came to Chesterton, and he matriculated in the Jackson township schools. On attaining to maturity he engaged in farming as an employee.
In May, 1883, he was married to Pauline Peterson, who was born in Sweden, August 26, 1858, and was educated in the old country. She came to the United States by herself in 1880. Before coming to America she was confirmed in the Swedish Lutheran church.
To this union seven children were born, all of whom are living. They are: Edward, who is married and lives in Chicago; Alfred, single, also a resident of Chicago; Esther, of Valparaiso, Indiana; Ella, Clarence, Harry and Marie. The members of the family hold membership in the Swedish Lutheran church at Chesterton.
Mr. Anderson is a trustee of this church. In politics he is a Republican. Following his marriage he rented a farm up to 1897, when he bought eighty acres, upon which he and his family now live. He is an industrious, conscientious and straightforward man, whose citizenship is of the highest quality, and his neighbors accord to him the highest respect.
