Hans was born at Mora Noret, Dalarne, Sweden on 23rd of Jan. 1839. Son of Anders Hansson and Kerstin Jonsson. Hans was the eldest of four children, his brother being next and then two sisters. One sister died at age four. His brother drowned when he was 23 years old which was a terrible shock to the family. His other sister married and had four children. His father, Anders Hansson was a farmer, a hard working man. He was also handy with tools such as those used in blacksmithing and carpentry, etc. He built himself a threshmachine which he used and his son also made use of it. It served it's purpose and did the work very well. He and his wife were honest and upright people, well thought of by neighbors and friends. This was the type of home Hans grew up in, God rearing and honest, not rich in this worlds good but they had what they needed, and they worked for it and took care of what they had. Hans was converted to the gospel and baptized when he was 25 years of age. he was baptized in an ice covered river on Apirl 4, 1864. An opening had to be made in the ice for the baptism. The missionary who baptized him was Elder C. E. Larsen. Hans was the only member of his family and as far as we know, the only one in the community to join the church at that time. A few years later, a friend that had been working on a ship on Lake Siljan, where they were loading and unloading timber, told him of a girl that was on the same ship working as a cook. He told him that she was a real defender of her religion and some of the men made light of it. But this impressed Hans and he thought he would like to meet this girl. He made her acquaintance which ripened into love. Hans and Anna were married June 4, 1870. Hans being 31 and Anna 22. Anna Hanson was born at Vattnas, Mora, Sweden on the 6th of March 1848, daughter of Hans Andersson and Karin Olsson. Her parents also were farmers and good people. She was the oldest of a family of four, two boys and two girls. The same summer as Hans and Anna were married, her folks emigrated to Nebraska. Hans and Anna had three boys, the youngest being 7 months old when she was baptized into the church at the age of 30. She was Baptized April 6, 1878 in the river where it emptied into the Lake Siljan and an opening was made in the ice as done for Hans. She was bpatized by P. O. Peterson. Later, Hans and Anna were blessed with another son, Ole and a daughter Anna. Tragedy struck their home when Anna being a frail little one was taken from them at the age of three. The entire family missed her very much as no other girls came to this family. A short while after Anna's death, John was born to them. This same year in Nov. Hans's mother passed on also. Two years later, Carl was born to complete Hans and Anna's family. They now had six boys, the eldest being sixteen. Four years after Hans's mother died, his father died also. In 1891, instead of enjoying the fruits of their labors and settling down to a comfortable life, Hans and Anna sold their land and possessions to come to America and start over again. Hans at this time was age 52 and Anna age 43., Andrew their eldest son left for Ogden, Utah early int he spring and had arrived there June 24, 1891. The rest of the family left Stockholm, Sweden Aug 1, 1891. They were on the North Sea three days and on the Atlantic Ocean for eight days. They arrived in Nebraska Aug 20th in a place called Bega, Near Stanton. This is where Anna's Folks had taken a homestead. They visited with them and also helped them with their farmwork for about six weeks before continuing their journey to Utah and their son Andrew, who at that time was living and working in Ogden. It had been 20 years since Anna had seen her parents and the first time her parents had seen their grandchildren. This was also the last time that they saw each other as Anna's mother died Oct 16, 1896, a short while after Hans and Anna had reached Ogden on Oct 10, 1891. Anna's father died two years later in 1893. The family reached Ogden, and met Andrew and his friend Eric Olsson, who was Andrew's companion since leaving Sweden. They stayed in Ogden during the winter and the next Spring, through help from other friends and missinaries that they had known before, located land to be homesteaded in what was later known as Lund, Idaho. Several names were suggested for the place after they had moved there, such as Asplund, because of the Aspens that grow on the hillsides ther, and Mountain Green was also suggested by someone, but they finally agreed on Lund, as being the best. Lund was called Hawley under the postmaster, henry E. Reddish in similarity of Hailey and Hawley which caused alot of mis-sent mail. Hans Sr. age 53, Andrew and Eric Olsson, all went together and filed on land in the Valley. There was also another friend Carl J. Lundgreen, from Montpelier, Idaho that they knew from his missionary work in Sweden, when they lived there, that also came about the same time. After they had their land filed on, Andrew and Eric Olsson stayed on the place in Lund, and Hans returned to Ogden to the family to ready them for the journey. Andrew and Eric Olsson, in the meantime, had built a two-room cabin on the place Hans ahd filed on so the family could move in. They were one of the first settlers in Lund. Lundgreen moving there the summer after the Andersons and Eric Olsson with them. Eric Olsson built a cabin on his place as soon as Andersons had their home built. All those cabin homes wee built of logs taken from the nearby canyons. It took time and hard work to get them, and then ready them for use in building. Hans and Anna had many hardships and struggles. They had to haul their drinking water from Bancroft about five miles away, and in the winter thime they melted snow for themselves and livestock. The Indians used to come and pay them visits and they had little food for themselves and livestock. The Anderson family extended their hearts and their hands many times in aiding others to get settled. Not to long after they had settled there, a Branch of the Chesterfield Ward was organized there. They had ward teachers come from that ward. There was a Sunday School organized there a few years later when a few more people had moved in and then a ward was organized in 1895, with the Bishop being Albert E. Blair. The new ward was named in honor of Carl J. Lundgreen, one of the first settlers. The Lund ward Relief Society was organized two years later on June 14, 1897 with Rosa B. Knowles as Pres. Although they could not speak or understand Enlgish well, they would go to enjoy the good spirit of the meetings and enjoy the friendships of the many early settlers of this little community. They would bear their testimonies in Swedish. This wonderful Father and Mother in 1907, Hans age 68 and Anna age 59 fulfilled their dreams and were married for Time and Eternity in the Salt Lake Temple. This same year, much temple work was completed for their deceased loved ones. Hans and Anna sent two sons, Andrew and Lars on missions to Sweden also in 1907. In 1910, Carl went to the Western States Mission. They continued to live there in Lund until the year 1916-1917 when they moved to Heyburn to live with their son Andrew who had become a widower with a young son, whom the Grandmother Anna did her best to care for and raise. The Lord said"...and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion." Jeremiah 3:14. In the case of Hans and Anna this was so. They became "Saviors on Mt. Zion" to save their ancestors and loved ones who have gone one and not had a chance to join the church. They were a God fearing, honest people and we shall all meet them some day and be proud to call them our people. "And he shall turn the Heart of the Fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers..." Malachi 4:6. It is interesting to note in Anna's Patriarchal Blessing:"...and you shall live as long as you desire life." After being in bed for three months from a stroke which partially paralized her limbs, Anna died at age 70. In Han's Patriarchal Blessing it says "And you shall live upon the earth as long as you desire life and go down to your grave like a head of grain fully ripe. Hans died 14 years after his wife at age 93. Hans and Anna lie side by side in the Riverside Cemetery in Heyburn, Idaho. Hans and Anna filled their mission and gave their posterity a better chance than they had. The relatives they left in Sweden have not had the great blessings that we have had and we should appreciate this heritage. Theirs was a life of work and joy in the Gospel rearing a family of six boys. Surely they lived a life worthy of our best efforts and our love and honor.


If you could see your ancestors all standing in a row

Would you be proud of them or not or don't really know?

Some strange discoveries are made in climbing family trees

And some of them you know, do not particularly please.

If you could see your ancestors, all standing in a row

There might be some of them perhaps, you wouldn't care to know

But there's another question, which requires a different view.

If you could meet you ancestors, would they be proud of you?

This article of Hans and Anna was given to me by my sister-in-law Lorene Wright.

Carl Bernard Anderson b. Apirl 19, 1887 and was the 6th son of Hans Anderson Sr. and Anna Hansson in Mora Noret Delarne, Sweden: My brother Andrew left for America in the spring of 1891. One month later my parents and family Hans, Lars, Olof, John and I left for America when I was four. Behind us we left little Sister Anna who died when she was 3. We sailed on the poorest ship the company had. The captain said, "It always goes well when lattter day saints go on my ship." We landed in New York that summer and traveled from New York to Nebraska by train. We stopped and visited with mothers brother Oliver Hansson for awhile. After a visit we left Nebraska by train for Ogden, Utah. That same year my father, Andrew and Erick Olson left for Idaho to find a place to homestead. They found land in the Bancroft area in a little community they later named Lund after one of the first homesteaders named Mr. Lundgreen who ran the Lundgreen store. fAther built a house at the point of the mountain which was later called Buckskin Point named after my father who wore a buckskin apron when he worked and rode a buckskin pony. Father wanted us to get an education but the school was quite a distance away and was held only 3 months out of every year. I got a fourth grade education. I went to work at a very young age and learned to stack hay well enough that many farmers in the area wanted me to stack their hay. In the Spring when the sheep were driven to the summer range I would find enjoyment helping them herd them through the lanes. Due to the distance traveled from winter range to summer range it became a problem to get the Ewes to summer range in time for lambing-I was rewarded for my services with bum lambs and weaker sheep who wouldn't make it back to winter range. Thisis how the family got into the sheep business. When I turned 23 [Nov 10, 1910] I received my mission call to serve the Lord in the North and South Dakota's. The ward held a farewell party and I received ..& 80.00 to use toward my mission. Francis M. Lyman was the President of the 12 Apostles at this time and he gave us instructions concerning our missions. He told us to tell the people, "We are traveling as Apostles of old without purse or script depending upon the hospitality of the people for our board and room." Upon leaving for my mission I traveled to Denver, Colorado where I received 3 months training. While in Denver I contracted German Measels and was down for 30 days. As soon as I recovered we started our trek to South Dakota. Shortly after we arrived in South Dakota we were sent to North DAkota where we attended out [our] first mission conference. We walked across both states holding street meetings and distributing Books of Mormon. We were top Elders in the Book distribution and I feel it was due to the fact I could speak both English and Swedish. Many of the people spoke Swedish in the Dakota's. I had many wonderful experiences while on my mission. On which stands out in my mind is the day we came across an elderly man who was hauling dirt from the back of the yard to the front. We offered our services to help and he accepted. We rolled up our sleeves and went to work. In a short time we had the work all finished. The gentleman offered to pay us for our services but we informed him that we were servants of the Lord and were traveling without purse or script depending upon the people for our board and room. He immediately offered us a meal and a room for the night. When we were ready to leave we left him a Book of Mormon and pamphlets. He told us if we were ever in the area again to please stop in his home. His home became a stopping place for many missionaries from that time one. We held several street meetings in this town and the word got around that we were not afraid to work. We were able to place many Books of Mormon in this town before we left to travel to the next town or ranch house along the way. One day we walked for 10 miles without finding anyone who would accept a book. We were tired and hungry. My companion was quite a bit older, he was tired and wanted to stay in the straw stack along the way. I told him I invisioned a house just over the next hill. I told him again, "I know their is a house over the next hill." I described it to him without ever having seen it. I couldn't pursuaede him to go any further. We went over to the nearest straw stack and made a bed in the straw where the animals had eaten a hole in the stack. It was warm covered in the straw. {When we awoke} we hadn't eaten for twenty four hours and we were ready to find something to eat. We rose up and brushed ourselves off and begun our journey. Just over the hill as I had described it to my companion was the house. He then knew I had been inspired the previous night. When we arrived at the house the man of the house said, "Where did you stay last night?" When he heard we had slept in the straw stack he said, "That's to bad, I waited for you last night and had beds waiting for you." We had breakfast with him and had some wonderful experiences talking about the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith. We has a zone conference in the next town. He offered to give us a ride into town. He told his friends and neighbors about us. We bade him good bye and attended our zone conference. We were called to plant a seed for future missionaries so we gave as many Books of Mormon to as many people as would accept them. That evening after zone conference we held a street meeting. I remember this night. We sang the song An Angel From on High. There was a band from another church who set up across the street and tried to drown us out. The people were very spiritual and they encircled us and with what I know to be Angels from on high did sing with us that night. Soon the band left and we were able to finish our street meeting and our sermon. Most everyone there took a Book of Mormon. We had a good feeling of success. I loved my missionary work because I know we were doing the work of the Lord. We had many more experiences such as this and some very sad ones, too. We were having a street meeting in another town and 2 men, the deputy sheriff and the Marshall rode up on horse back and told us "you tramps!" "leave!" We told them we were not tramps. but missionaries of God, representing the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The said "Mormons?" I said, "That's what they call us." They replied, "Preaching False Doctrine." I said we would like to meet some of your learned men and they told us we had to get out of town. We said we would leave in 30 minutes. We looked up and down the street and there was an audience of well over a 1,000. Their eyes were upon us. We turned and walked south and the people still came out on their porches and told us to keep right on going. We've heard all we want about you. I told my partner we'd better turn east to get on another phone exchange. It was almost dark by then and we arrived at a nice old home. We knocked at the door and was told to come in. We told him we were missionaries fromt he church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and then he asked where we were from. We told him we were from Utah and Idaho. He said, "You're not Mormons I hope!" "That's what they call us." I said. Then he told us to get out of his house. He had a 16 year old boy who was sitting in another room listening and when he heard his father order us out he came out shouting "No Dad, No Dad!" When I was in Utah last, I never had to want for a place to sleep or for a good meal." Then his father said that we could stay but he didn't want to hear any of our doctrine. We had traveled through out the Dakota's and we walked on to the corner of Nebraska where we stayed with my uncle Oliver Hansson. I was saddened that he had not yet joined the church. From Nebraska we headed back to Denver and took a train the last 50 miles. We arrived to the conference on time and I was released from my missioning. I returned home and was home only a few short [years] when I met my future wife to be Arvine L. Curtis at a dance in central Idaho. It wasn't long after we met that we set our wedding date.
