Birth: Feb. 28, 1812, Sweden
Death: Jan. 8, 1891
Carver County
Minnesota, USA

Andreas Lundborg was born in Sodra Harene, Vastergotland, Sweden. In June of 1861, Andreas, wife Lena, son Samuel, and daughter Johanna came to America from Sweden (four other sons, Johannes, Anders, Gustaf, and Lars had arrived in 1858). They also had a daughter, Sara Andreasdotter (1842-1907), married to Johan Petterson Lundquist, who remained in Sweden. Following a short stay in Boston, the Lundborg family moved (July 1861) to the West Lake settlement (now called Monson Lake) near the boundary between Swift and Kandiyohi counties in Minnesota. Here they joined Johannes, Anders, Gustaf, and Lars who had just filed claims in sections five and six of Arctander township, Kandiyohi county. On August 20, 1862, the third day of the Dakota uprising, Indians attacked the West Lake settlement, killing several in the community. All except one in each of the families of Anders P. and Daniel P. Broberg were killed, and three of Andreas Lundborg's sons (Anders, Gustaf, and Lars) were killed when they tried to help the Brobergs (son Samuel was wounded). Most of the West Lake victims had just attended a religious service at the Lundborg home. The Lundborgs decided to leave West Lake following the attack. After moving to Afton in Washington county, and then back to West Lake, the surviving Lundborgs eventually moved to the West Union area of Carver County, Minnesota. Andreas farmed here in the northeast quarter of section 12, Hancock Township, about a mile south of the cemetery in which he is buried. His daughter, Johanna, married Erick Paulson and they remained on the original Lundborg claim at West Lake.
