Hello Greg Hicks,
Here is a photo that shows an Anna Beata Christianson who seems to have been adopted into my great granddmother's family. http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/e/n/g/Debra-A-Eng...
I wonder whether it is the same person you are researching. I have that she was born 19 October 1846 in Drangsered. She was married to a Charlie P. Johnson. I think they farmed in Clear Lake, Wisconsin ca. 1880-92 and then Vancouver, Washington. They may habve been in Aberdeen at one time. Possible children - Eva , Gustav.
I have a picture of a family taken in Alexadria , Minn., perhaps 1890's. The mother resembles the woman identified as Anna Beata Christianson in the above link. If it is her, it shows the husband, and 6 "children" - four male, two female.
