Birth: Sep. 18, 1858, Sweden
Death: Aug. 18, 1925
Cardston

Hannah Anderson was born at Ostra, Odarslov, Malmohus Lan, Sweden, the daughter of Bengta Carlson and Hans Anderson.

She married Johannes Anderson, as a plural wife, on January 4, 1874 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah.
Children:
Hannah Augusta Eliza Archibald (1877-1947)
James Hyde (1879-1964)
Samuel Oscar (1881-1960)
Annie Betty Steed (1884-1960)
Mary Amanda Layton (1886-1969)
Moses Albert (1888-1924)
Effie Jeannette McClung (1892-1924)
Attena Kate Leishman (1894-1961)

In 1887, Johannas was called by the Church President, John Taylor, to colonize in Canada. Leaving Cecelia and Caroline, his earlier wives, and their families in Millville, Johannes took his wife, Hannah, and her five children, their belongings and cattle; and they left for what is now Cardston, Alberta. They built a log home with a sod roof, and they lived there until another home could be built. Johannes tested trees and shrubs for the Horticultural Department at Ottawa to determine their adaptability to the West. The demand for his seed wheat was far greater than he could supply. Johannes was counselor to Bishop George O. Pitkin, and in Cardston he was counselor to Bishop Harmer and a member of the High Council. He was a firm believer in the power of prayer.
