my grandfather, Clarence Leonard Anderson was born in Bay City, Wisconsin in 1880, so i figure that his parents, John and Elizabeth, together or individually came to US around 1860, or sooner, first from Sweden, then sailed to England before arrival to US. i've looked at passenger lists but the results haven't matched up. there were half brothers, arvid and david which suggests that Elizabeth was a second wife, i think... brothers to john anderson was hjalmer, edward, and arthur which suggests the reason for my grandfather naming his son, archibald. i did find a military record for clarence anderson for the third draft registration of September 12, 1918 at Olmsted County, Rochester, Minnesota but with this registration, the required information was basic.
