Anders Olsson OLIN in the USA (by Barbara)
Anders Olsson Olin used the name Andrew Olien, in the US. He worked on farm in 1879 and the following year he attended Fowler's Commercial College in Chicago, Illinois. In the summer of 1881 he worked as labourer in railroad construction and soon became a foreman, a position he held for 2 years. Later he started constructing in same line of work until settling in Medicine Co, Minnesota.
He purchased a farm in Friendship and resided there until 1902 when he was engaged in the hardware and implement business with partner, Mr Silver, in Clarkfield.
In 1912 he sold the business and returned to farming. (I think he kept the farm and also bought a home in Clarkfield. I am not sure about the governmental structure of Friendship and Clarkfield but think Friendship is part of Clarkfield) He
served several years as a member of the Friendship town board and for some years a member of the Clarkfield village council and Board of Education. He was elected as a Commissioner of Yellow Medicine County board for 8 years,
his terms expiring 1 Jan 1913. In Nov 1912 he was elected to represent his district in the State Legislature.

He married Mary A. Tyler, born May 2, 1887,. Her parents were pioneers from N.Y.and they settled on a farm in Sheboygan Co, Wisconsin. Her father died in 1892 and mother in 1899.
Anders and Mary had 6 children: 
Ida, born Dec 18, 1888, Andrew, b March 18, 1892, Charles, b Dec 22, 1894, Alice, b June 17, 1897, Violet, b May 21, 1900 and Clara, b March 9, 1903. (S2)
Anders moved from Friendship to St Paul, Minnesota where he died in 1933 (S3).

was born on 1863-09-24 in Träne sn, Skåne province. She was baptized on Nov 1 and the witnesses were: 
Åbo Jöns Mårtensson and wife Hanna Persdotter and 
A Malmström and wife S Persdotter, all from Träne. (Fb-T2)
(The first witness is probably the mother's brother Jöns).

About a year after her brother Anders left for the USA she received her flyttningsintyg (transfer certificate) for moving to N America, on April 27, 1880. She was then a resident at the farm Örmatofta # 12, sn and unmarried. (HFL-V1)
Anna returned to her family in sn from USA in 1882.
On Oct 21, 1887 she moved to Kristianstad city.  (HFL-V2)
On Nov 10, 1888 she married the snickaregesäll (carpenter journeyman) Nils Nilsson Dahlberg, born Dec 17, 1856 in Degeberga sn
On March 22, 1890 they had a daughter named Esther Hildegard while living in Stoby sn
On May 9, 1891 the family moved from Stoby sn to Ormastorp # 6 in sn.
The family is registered on July 17, 1891 as leaving for N America (HFL-V2)

USA Story (by Barbara)
(Gap in history - what happened to Nils Dahlberg ?  Wrong Anna ?)
Anna later married Carl Ludvig Emil Michelsen, born in Norway.  Left Norway in 1890. Naturalized in the fall of 1900.
Buried in Mayflower Cemetery, Duxbury Mass.

(S5 -1890: destroyed)
(S5 -1900) - West Chicago, Illinois; b April 1860, age 40, married 15 years, number of children - 3, no of children living - 2; b Norway; imm 1888. Her father as being born in Belgium
(Must be checked further)
(S5 -1910) Anna married 15 yrs, age 45, had 7 children, 4 living, b Sweden, immigrated 1892.
1910 - 1917 The family moved east from West Chicago, Illinois to the Boston area. I have pictures which were taken
around 1910 and I have been to Illinois and have found the house which is virtually unchanged . I also know where they lived in the Boston area.
(S5 -1920) Anna - age 54, immigrated 1892, Swedish, possibly naturalized in 1912
(S5 -1930) essentially the same as 1920.

The children - as I knew them - were Esther Hildegard, Arthur Ludwig, Harry William and Alice Louise. 
Esther never married
Arthur married Isabelle, had no children
Harry married Eleanor and had one daughter
Alice married Horatio and had 3 children - 2 sons and a daughter.

I know very little about Anna. I do have her bobbin lace pillow and bobbins and a couple of hand woven towels of hers.

It was family lore that Anna and Carl Michelsen, met on board ship coming to the USA. The NORWAY lister who found Karl Mikkelsen's passage information, and Sue Swiggum of THE SHIPSLIST have given me the following information: 
Karl left on the "Montebello" the agent was Elster 24 Oct 1890 from Kristiania to Hull, England. Ferdinand Elster was the Kristiania White Star Line Agent and the White Star Line ship was the "Teutonic" arriving in New York 1890-11-05 from Liverpool. On the records from Elster, under the column "Remarks" is an "R". I have not been able to find what
that "R" stands for but have been wondering if it meant "Returning". This tentative "assumption" is because of the 1888 date of immigration on the 1900 census. Both Carl and Anna stated they arrived in 1888.. I have not found a passenger list which contains the names. The 1910, 1920 and 1930 US censuses all have Carl's immigration date as 1890 and Anna's as 1892.

My uncle made a comment one time that he thought they came through the Port of Boston, MA and that was why they moved to Boston, but he also said they they moved there because his ship, in WW I, had Boston as a home port. My mother said they moved to Boston because Anna had a goitre and they wanted to get near the coast to get salt water fish.  /Barbara

Query to Sweden list:
I have been trying for a long time to get information about Anna Olson who immigrated in either 1888 or 1892. I can make a case for either date making me wonder if she returned to Europe sometime between 1888 and 1892. I have some information that indicates that she was from somewhere in Skåne, her father quite possibly Ola Anderson, died 1880, and mother Elna, died 1886. Elna was also possibly an Anderson. Anna had a brother whose name was changed to Andrew Olien, born 9 March 1860, at some time, probably after immigrating. He became a State Representative in Minnesota. She was born 24 Sept 1865, her brother in 1860 and immigrated in 1879. Both lived in Chicago and later moved - she to Boston, MA and he to Minnesota. I believe there was a sister who also immigrated but I know nothing about her.
Anna married Carl Michelsen, a Norwegian whose name originally I don't know, possibly Charles, Karlsen, Anna may have had a daughter Esther born 23 March 1890. Esther may have been born in Chicago, Illinois or in Sweden.
One of the problems I am faced with is: Was Anna married in Sweden and immigrated under another surname.
Thank you for any help. I have submitted most of this information before and received information but I have not been able to find her in Sweden or as a passenger.

Thank you very, very much
