Anders Hanson was born in Halmstad, Halland, Sweden about 1847 (the month I have is June). This is the date I have found on most records, although the headstone of his grave, in Corning, Steuben, New York, reads that he was born in 1844.
I'm not sure, but he may have sailed on the Wilson Line ship the Rollo from Gothenburg, Sweden to Hull, England. I am not sure which ship he sailed on to America. He entered his immigration year as 1875 on the 1900 U.S. Census record.
He preceded his wife and daughters to America to find work and provide a house for them to live in. They came over to join him in 1880.
He married my great-great grandmother, Johanna Maria (maiden name unknown) in 1872 in Sweden.
Thank you for any help you can give. It is greatly appreciated!
