    Notes 
    • According to the clerical survey, may have been confirmed July 8, 1894.

      Emigrated to the US from Värmland, March 21, 1902. The ship’s manifest that Mark found shows that Jan crossed on the Commonwealth which sailed from Liverpool on April 10, 1902, and arrived in Boston (as 21 year-old Jan Anderson) that same month. Jan’s destination is shown as 208 Exter Street in Duluth. Jan was traveling with a friend named Johan Olson.

      He is probably the Edward Wallback listed in the 1902 Duluth city directory. He is a laborer boarding at 124 Devonshire.

      The 1902 year of immigration is confirmed by the citation in the 1920 census. Naturalized as a citizen in 1907. These are the same dates as are cited for his wife Marie.

      In the 1905 state census, Edward and Gustav Anderson were living together on Exeter Street in Duluth. Each had been in the U.S. for three years. Each was a laborer.

      In the 1910 census, he is Edward G. Anderson, 30, living in Proctorknott, St. Louis County with his wife, Marie E., 27, and daughter Gladys E., 3/12. The couple has been married for one year and Marie has had only one birth. Edward is a carpenter for the railroad.

      Registered for the WWI draft on September 12, 1918, at Duluth as John Edward Anderson. Living at Box 228, Proctor, MN. Employed as a carpenter. Nearest relative is Marie Elizabeth Anderson, wife. Tall and of slender build with gray eyes and dark hair.

      John E Anderson and family was visited by census enumerator Iver T Anderson on January 14, 1920, while the family was living on First Street in the village of Proctorknott, Saint Louis County, Minnesota (ED #189). This village probably became the current town or city of Proctor, just northeast of Duluth. All three children are listed.

      The 1930 census showed John E. Anderson, 49, his wife Marie E., 48, and their daughter Florence, 15, and son Roland E., 14, living in Duluth in a $3000 house that they owned at 118 Park Avenue. The household had a radio. John and Marie emigrated from Sweden in 1902.

      In the 1936 Duluth city directory, he is a carpenter living with Marie at 118 Park Avenue.

      In the 1940 census, he may be the Edward Anderson, age 59, living in a boarding house at 1915 West First Street in Duluth. He is unable to work and has no occupation.

      In the 1946 Duluth city directory, he is John E Anderson, a repairman for Goodwill Industries, living with Marie at 2808 West 3rd.

      He died as John Edward Anderson. His son Roland was the informant for his death certificate. Ed had been a carpenter in the construction business and had been in the Duluth area for 50 years. At the time of his death, he and his wife Marie lived at 2808-1/2 West 3rd Street in Duluth. Roland had no idea who his father’s parents were. Ed died of a coronary occlusion brought on by cardio-vascular disease.

      According to David, Ed was crippled by a construction accident and used crutches. His wife left him after that accident. (This is probably the reason why they are shown as having separate addresses for many years). Ed lived with Klara in Deerwood for awhile, perhaps while he was recovering or perhaps because he had nowhere else to go. It was because of her leaving Ed that Naomi did not like Ed’s wife.

    Probably in the mid to late 1890s. Klara, on the left, and Ed (behind her) are in their late teens and Gust is in his early teens. The woman on the right is probably one of Klara's two sisters, either of whom would have been about 30.
