Tobias Anderson History

Tobias Parents

Letter from Rosalie Anderson Mixson to Brenda Mixson, April 29, 1989 who requested it because Mom and Dad were going to visit them in Austria and they wanted to make a trip to Norway to see if they could find any of Dad's ancestors. (See Barbar's Trip Diary TBD)

  For Brenda:     

Tobias Anderson, my father, was born in Norway, March 28, 1848 at Garceden Wasedet Mosogon.  His father and mother had ten children.  
    1.       Andrew
    2.       John
    3.       Eli
    4.       Thomas
    5.       Tobias
    6.       Oleo
    7.       Martin
    8.       Ellen
    9.       Dorthea
    10.     Bertha  

One of the girls were a step-sister or half sister, I don’t remember which one.  Tobias was 25 years old when he and his father and mother came over to the U.S. with the rest of their children.  Two of the sons had already came to the U.S. and was living and working in Wis. Or Minn.  I can’t remember when I was about sixteen papa’s brother Andrew as living in Dis Moines, Iowa.  His brother John was living in Ill. In 1907 or 08.  His son died and John sent a picture of the casket with a picture of his son on it.  He looks real young and very handsome.  When we moved back from Brevard Co. his brother Andrew wrote and wanted his daughter and I to write to one another.  Her name was Marie.  Andrew had four children, two girls and 2 boys.  One son was in World War I in the Rainbow Div. which was almost destroyed.  He got back safely.  

We moved to Mico Fla in 1906.  William was just 6 months old, we then moved to Bonaventure Fl. Where we lived until (Bill) was five, then moved back to Marion, Co. Fl. Where we lived the rest of my life or until I was married to Wilbur Mixson.  We were married 40 yrs.
