Brodd is a military name meaning something like "horseshoe nail." Last name was changed from another military name, Fast, in Rinna Parish, 1856.
We know from death certificates that Anders, his wife Mathilda (Bjorkman, 1832-1908), and their youngest son Oscar are buried in the Moravian Cemetery in Ephraim, Wisconsin; but not their exact plots ~ they never had markers and interment records are lost even though Oscar died in 1943 and was buried by Casperson Funeral Home.
There are also records that his daughter, Hilda Maria, and granddaugher, Esther Marie, had funerals at Ephraim Moravian and must also be in this same cemetery along with another unknown grandchild, making six Brodds together here.
