Christopher «Kitt» Andersson (1852-1933) - frå Luster til Amerika i 1873 - gullgravar i Colorado og farmar i Kansas - utfordrande detaljar om borni hans?


Lars E. Øyane

Recommended Posts

Eg vil i kveld gjerne få henta from ein av brørne til Daniel Anderson frå plassen Ytreland under Hærum i Luster, Christopher Anderson, som utvandra i 1873 og var gullgravar i Colorado til han slo seg ned som farmar i Russell Co., KS.

 

Eg har no slite med å få oppgradert de gamle notatane mine om denne huslyden og har etter kvart finne ut av det meiste, men eg står fast på fleire detaljarm, og særleg er det ei stor utfordring å finna ut kva som skjedde med sonen John, som ifølgje rapportar eg fekk hjå slekti i 1982, skal ha mist livet i Nord-Atlantaren kring 1935.  No har nokon greidd å finna han att i Wyoming.  Eg tviler sterkt på om det kan stemma, men kanskje greier nokon å finna ut av det?

 

Her følgjer eit oppdatert manuskript for denne huslyden:

Hjarteleg takk til Egil for siste innlegget.

 

Akkurat denne omtalen var det eg fann på eit family tree hjå ancestry.com, og som eg tviler sterk på om stemmer.  Gravstaden er kjend, tross dette skal find-a-grave ha dekning for gravi!?

 

Går ein inn på find-a-grave og søker konkret på John Anderson gravlagd i Wyoming 1976, får me ingen treff!  Eg forstår ikkje denne saki i det heile.

 

Men kanskje ein eller annan kan forklara kva som ligg bak?

 

Ein ny kjempetakk for framifrå bistand med denne huslyden!

Har sendt inn en forespørsel til FAG:

 

Sitat


May I ask what's the source behind the information (death in 1976) on the grave memorial for John T Anderson?

Eg er takksam for at du går vidare med denne saki og er spent på svaret du får.

 

Eg har sjølv vore inne og søkt på city directories og finn følgjande innførsle frå White Plains, NY i 1934:

 

* Anderson, John T (Anna B.), r19 Old Mamaroneck Rd: https://www.ancestry.com/interactive/2469/2060784?pid=104323570&treeid=&personid=&rc=&usePUB=true&_phsrc=Nzx17631&_phstart=successSource

 

Kan det vera «vår» John T. Anderson som likevel syner seg ha vore gift?  Kanskje ikkje; eg finn han att i city directories mellom 1926 og 1933, ein gong som «plumber» og med varierande mellombokstav, som regel F...
