Andreas Nilson Andreasen (Americanized to Andrew Anderson) was the son of Andreas and Aase Nilsson. He married Maren Olava Christophersdatter April 4, 1873 in Asker, Akershus, Norway. They and their three children, Carl, Anna and Sofie, immigrated to America in 1899, settling in Norden, Deuel, South Dakota.
Sofie married Sever Severson but died at the age of 23. Anna married Carl Peterson and was the mother of 10 children. She died at the age of 41 in South Dakota. Andreas' wife, Maren, also died between 1910-1920 which no doubt influenced him to leave South Dakota and go to live with his son, Carl, and family in Montana. While at an advanced age, he was still able to help with the farm work. He died at the age of 89 years, 8 months and 18 days.
