Ellen Josefina Andersosn is the 8th of 8 children born to Anders Andersson III (1829 – 1879) &
Britta Persson Andersson (1834 – 1929).

Father, Anders Anderson III, was a carpenter. The family was contacted by the Mormon missionaries and Mother Greta (Britta) (at age 45) and Father Anders (at age 50) were baptized member of the LDS Church on 12 Oct 1879. However, Father, Anders Anderson II died two months later on 12 Dec 1879.

This left Britta, with 7 (living) children ranging in age from 17 to 2 year old..Life was very difficult for the family. Britta took in washing and ironing to earn a little money, and they farmed most of their food. Besides attending grammar school, the boys worked on farms and the girls worked as maid & house keepers.

During 1892 Ellen's brother, Erick Vilhelm (William), emigrated from Sweden to SLC, Utah. Ellen followed during 1993 and brother, Alfred John followed during 1896. During 1899 Mother, Britta, and sisters, Britta Christina "Stena" and Caroline "Lena" also immigrated to SLC, Utah. (Dated based on 1990 U.S. Census).
