Hi. Does anyone know more about Anders Peter Anderson and wife Annie Fredericka Louisa Jensen, married at 'the home of Mr Jensen', Gunalda 1890, lived Miva?

Anders (c1868 - 1913) and parents Johannes (1834-1916) and Engre Katrina Gustave (various spellings, 1831-1908) are buried at Munna Creek cemetery, Miva.

Anders and Annie had four children. August Johannes b.1891, m. Daisy Isabella Mohr 1923), lived Miva, later Maryborough. Anna Maria (Mary) b.1894, m. John Savage 1919, lived Nundah. Carl (Charles) John b.1897 m. Delia Mary Connors 1927. Ellen Louisa b.1908 ?m. David Dobson 1927.

Annie m. James Clarke (1864-1946) in 1927 and lived in South Brisbane. She died in 1960 and is buried with John Jensen at Nundah cemetery.

Anders had a brother Charles Gustave (?-1940) m. Emma Rose Sibley 1898; daughter Ivy Jessie 1900-1943 (death as Bowen).

I would love to find out more about Anders and Annie, in particular how and when they arrived in Australia. Anders' place of birth, listed on his marriage cert as Halmotve, Sweden, does not appear in any searches I have done. Annie appears to have been born in Denmark (details vary), father August Jensen. I would be interested to know more about August/where he lived (he appears to have disappeared into thin air).

I would also like to know more about the Mrs JW Watson who was invited to the funeral (can find nothing to indicate it is Ellen, although that would be logical).

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
