John E. Anderson (Sweden > Jamestown, NY)

John E. Anderson (Sweden > Jamestown, NY)

Surnames: Anderson, Swanson
Hello,

I am searching for my great-great granduncle, John E. Anderson.

He was born in Sweden, a son of Andrew Anderson and Carolina Swanson.

His birth date was between 1874 and 1876.

He immigrated to the United States in 1902 or 1903.

He died on December 12, 1931 in Jamestown, NY

This is all I know. I would appreciate any help.

Thanks,

Andrew Martin Kolstee

Hello
It is hard to find the man you are looking for with this information. Do you know what "E" stands for - his middle name?
I would guess that his name could be Johan E Andersson. His father would be Anders Andersson and his mother Karolina or Carolina Svensdotter or Svensson. If you could get his exact date of birth it would help.

Unfortunately, I have tried and I cannot find any death or burial record, or any other record that gives his birth date. I got his death date from his wife's obituary.

There are too many possibilities for your Johan (Johan, Johannes, Jon, Jöns, etc.) E. Anderson (Andersson, Andreasson) in the Emibas CD index, the Emihamn database index, and the indexes called the 1880-1890-1900 Swedish Census CDs.

You will probably not find the parish of birth online, but I have researched family members who lived in Jamestown, Chautauqua County, New York and have had great success. They were the easiest of all my branches to research because records are plentiful there.

Most of the best clues are not found online. We need to go to archives, courthouses, use microfilms, etc.

1. I found my Jamestown branch in the Swedish American church records and the Swedish American newspapers at the archive called the Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center.

http://researchingswedishroots.blogspot.com/2011/09/swenson-...

They have microfilms of these Swedish American church records for Chautauqua County, New York.

HIST = congregational history, MINS = meeting minutes, MEMB = membership records, M/A = ministerial acts (baptisms, confirmations, marriages, funerals, etc.)

They have these Swedish American newspapers for Jamestown. They loan the newspaper microfilms through interlibrary loan. (They don't loan church records.) Have your library use the instructions at the top of this page.

2. I found useful marriage APPLICATION records which told me the names of parents. If you found those, be aware that the names may not only be Americanized but also be aware that the clerk assumed that the father would have the same last name as his child. (Swedes used patronymic naming customs so your John's father may have been an Anders or Andreas (but not Andrew which is not a Swedish name) but his last name might have been different.

Order these films through a Family History Center, now called a Family Search Center, but I'm used to the old term. ;-)

3. Obituaries in Jamestown newspapers were detailed even in the English language papers and might have been better in the Swedish papers.

I ordered English language obituaries from the James Prendergast Library in Jamestown.

http://prendergastlibrary.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/OBI...

The Swenson Center, listed in # 1, also might have an obituary in their newspapers.

4. I have found what appears to be a death certificate in the cemetery records for the Lake View Cemetery in Jamestown. Those are microfilmed up to a point.

https://familysearch.org/eng/library/fhlcatalog/printing/tit...

The index goes much later. I have some from the 1960s found in the index, which provides the date of death, date of birth, location in the cemetery,etc.

I could keep mentioning Jamestown records but those should give you the most "bang for the buck". ;-)

In addition to the above, have you tried the following?

1. World War I Draft Registration Records

2. The U.S. Federal Censuses for 1910-1920-1930

3. The New York State Censuses for 1905, 1915, and 1925

3. Naturalization records (They should be very detailed because he wouldn't have been eligible for naturalization until about 1907-1908. The naturalization records after late 1906 should provide his Swedish name, his full birthdate and place of birth in Sweden, date and port of leaving Sweden, date and port of arriving in the U.S., and information on his wife and children and much more.

4. his death certificate

Also, you wrote:

"I am searching for my great-great granduncle, John E. Anderson."

I assume you know something about your more direct ancestor, for whom he was a brother. Tell us about that person, which will provide clues in the Swedish censuses, etc. (I have found a number of possibilities for a John Anderson in the 1880 Swedish Census, for example, and it would help to know who your direct ancestor was. If that person is found in the same household, your problem is solved.)

Do you know where your direct ancestor came from in Sweden, and other details?

I don't totally trust the names of the parents which you provided. I searched the 1880 Swedish Census for a boy whose given name started with J and who was born between 1873-1877. The mother's last name was listed as Sven* and the father's given name was listed as And*. I found these hits. It would be easier to help if you had told us the direct ancestor for which he was a brother.

Perhaps you now see the enormity of the problem and I didn't even include any Cajsa/Kajsa hits who might have also been Carolina/Karolina. (The names are interchangeable.)Maybe the mother's last name was something different and someone assumed that if her father was Svensson, she should be too because of the lack of understanding of patronymics.

What if your birth years are even further off? What is the E in John E. Andersson stood for a patronymic last name and the father wasn't actually an Anders? There are too many possibilities. You need to do much more searching in the sources I suggested and others too, if necessary. Most of the best records are ****NOT*** online.

Re: John E. Anderson (Sweden > Jamestown, NY)

Posted: 16 Jan 2013 5:44PM GMT
Classification: Query
Edited: 16 Jan 2013 5:45PM GMT
Surnames: Anderson, Johnson, Swanson
John E. Anderson was born about 1873-1877 (based on 1920 U.S. Census, 1925 N.Y. State Census, and 1930 U.S. Census

John E. Anderson
Census taken on January 1, 1920:
*298 South Main Street Jamestown, NY
*Age 43 (born 1876 or 1877)
*Immigrated in 1902
*Teamster

Census taken on April 1, 1930:
*42 Water Street Jamestown, NY
*Age 56 (born 1873 or 1874)
*Immigrated in 1903
*No occupation

He and his wife, Hilda, are living with my great-great grandparents, Martin and Bessie Johnson. Bessie is Hilda's sister.

Wife: Hilda Elida Johnson
born December 27, 1887 Houtzdale, Clearfield Co., PA
died September 13, 1979 Jamestown, Chautauqua Co., NY

Children, all born in Jamestown, NY:
*Leona Anderson Borst (1912-2010)
*Pearl Anderson Moore (1915-2007)
*Robert Anderson (1917-1969)

John died on December 12, 1931. I cannot find any burial record; he is not buried with his wife at Sunset Hill Cemetery in Lakewood, NY; he is not buried in any other cemetery in the area. I can find no death certificate or notice in the local newspaper either.

The only sources for their marriage comes from the Immanuel Lutheran Church in Jamestown, N.Y. and the New York, County marriage records.

John and Hilda married on June 28, 1911 in Jamestown, N.Y. The ceremony was officiated by the Rev. Felix V. Hanson.

New York, County marriage records list John's parents as:

Father: Andrew Anderson
Birthplace: Sweden
Mother: Carolina Swanson
Birthplace: Sweden

This is all I know about John. I do not know of any siblings he may have had. I do not have an exact birth date.

Where did you find the initial E? Was it in a marriage record?

I can't find him in the World War I Draft Registrations. I did find him in the 1915 New York State Census.

I have never found him with a middle initial.

I know you have the following but I wrote it this way to understand him better.

1915 New York STATE census:

Source Citation: New York State Archives, Albany, New York, State Population Census Schedules, 1915; Census Place: Election District 01, Assembly District 01, Jamestown Ward 04, Chautauqua, 59.

40 years old, so born about 1875
wife Hilda
citizen

12 years in the U.S. so came about 1903
========================================================
1920:

I looked at the 1920 U.S. Federal Census, which was actually enumerated 3 January 1920. Unless you are very, very sure "John" was born on 1 January or 2 January, you should subtract his age of 43 from 1919, which would make his estimated birth year 1876. This says he has papers so does that mean it was naturalized or does it mean he has applied?)

born about 1876

immigration year: about 1902

address: 298 South Main Street in Jamestown

He is listed as John, not John E.

children born in New York, so there since about 1912

wife listed as Hilda L.
===============================================
1925 New York State Census:

50 years old, so born about 1875

20 years in the U.S., so came about 1905

wife listed as Hilda

address: 14 _illard Street
========================================
1930 U.S. Federal Census:

address: 42 Water Street

wife listed as Hilda L.

no kids listed

56 years old, so born about 1874 (should have been 54 if the age was correct in 1920.)

married at age 35, so married about 21 years, making the marriage year about 1918, but the poster says the marriage took place in 1911.

However, if he was born in 1876, he would have been 35 in 1911. I think the age in 1930 is incorrect.

Their address in the 1915 New York State Census was 120 English in Jamestown, New York. John was listed as a teamster, so I suppose he drove a wagon or maybe drove a truck to deliver things.
