Anders Oman was born in Tinnbergs parish, Sweden. Anders, with his parents, Sven and Christina, and sister Johanna, came to America from Sweden in August of 1861. They were aboard a sailing vessel called the "Arendal", and landed in Quebec after five weeks at sea. After short stays in St. Paul and Carver county, Minnesota, they moved to the West Lake settlement (now called Monson Lake) near the boundary between Swift and Kandiyohi counties in Minnesota. Their claim was on section six, Arctander township, in Kandiyohi county, situated between the Lundborg and Broberg family claims. On August 20, 1862, the third day of the Dakota uprising, Indians attacked the West Lake Settlement, killing several in the community. Anders was at home with his sister, while his parents had just attended a religious service at the Andreas Lundborg home. The Oman family narrowly survived the attack by hiding in their cellar. Following the uprising, the Omans moved to Afton in Washington county, and then to the East Union area of Carver county. Anders farmed here with his dad in the northeast quarter of section 36, San Francisco township, about a mile east of the cemetery in which he is buried. Anders died at Dakota county in 1936.
