Biography / Levnadsbeskrivning

Anders Magnus Teodor Jonasson was brother of Carolina Christina Svensdotter Stedt’s husband, Peter Carl Jonasson.

When Anders Magnus married Mathilda Maria Ingemarsdotter he moved to his father’s farm in Västra Stigåsa, Stockaryd parish. The farm was owned by "the estate." His first wife died from complications of childbirth (daughter Augusta Sofia) in 1876. Anders married again on February 2, 1877 to Maria Katarina Johansdotter from Björnhult, Stockaryd parish.

Anders and Maria left Stockaryd for America – Anders in April 1893 and Maria on January 7, 1898. The rest of the family emigrated to America:


Wilhelmina Christina 17/7 1885
Per Johan André 1887
Frans Oskar 16/4 1889 Ticket to Salina (Kansas)
Klas Aron 1890
Augusta Sofia 1890
Hulda Karolina 31/5 1895 Ticket to Rockford (Illinois)
Anna Charlotta 1897
Karl Otto Sigfrid 1897
Amanda Emilia 7/1 1898 Ticket to Manhattan (Kansas)
Ellen Teolina Serafia 7/1 1898 Ticket to Manhattan
Ernst Gunnar Teodor 7/1 1898 Ticket to Manhattan

Most of the Anderson family lived at Manhattan, Kansas. Anders changed his name to Andrew Anderson and was a farmer. The family tragedy was the death of Frans Oskar at age 17 in Manhattan. The rest of the family seems to have flourished in America and lived long healthy lives. Anderson women in particular did well; many living into their 90´s.

I samband med giftermålet flyttade Anders Magnus in som ägare på fadern Jonas Månssons gård i Västra Stigåsa som vid detta tillfället ägdes av sterbhuset.

Hans första hustru avled i barnsäng 1876, 11 dagar efter förlossningen, i samband med femte barnens födelse. Med sin andra hustru fick han ytterligare sju barn, således 12 barn sammanlagt. Av de 11 barn som var i livet 1897 emigrerade samtliga vid olika tillfällen till N Amerika:


Wilhelmina Christina, 17/7 1885
Per Johan André, 1887
Frans Oskar, 16/4 1889 till Saliner
Klas Aron, 1890
Augusta Sofia, 1890

Anders Magnus emigrerade själv till N Amerika 18/4 1893 med biljett till Manhattan. Hustrun Maria Katarina blev kvar i Stigåsa Westergård till 27 december 1897 då hon och de återstående barnen fick utflyttningssedel. Fredagen den 7 januari 1898 reste hon och de minsta barnen med emigrantbåten Ariosto eller Romeo från Göteborg till Hull för fortsatt resa till det nya Landet.

De flesta kom att stanna i Manhattan, Kansas, och förutom sonen Frans Oskar som dog i 17-årsåldern uppnådde de flesta en hög ålder.
