Hello, I'm looking for information on Joseph Oscar Anderson and his wife Alma Robichaud. Oscar was born Dec. 1, 1890 in Sweden. Married Alma Dec 31, 1914 (?). Alma Robichaud born Dec 10, 1898 Chatham, NB.Parents Fredrick Robichaud and Elizabeth Gallant.
Oscar and Alma had 4 children Hilda Mary (b Mar 16 1915 (my grandmother), Pearl, Oscar jr, and Bobby (was told he died as a child). Oscar Anderson enlisted in WW1 reg number 715770 25th Battalion Nova Scotia Riffles.Died Sept 26, 1921.Remember being told he got TB and died in the hospital after the war.After his death Emma remarried a Roy Robinson.
Alma changed her name to Emma by the time my Gmother was born in 1915.
I haven't had any luck finding more info on Joseph Oscar Anderson.When he came to Canada, what ship or entry point, parents names and what place in Sweden he came from.
I'm also having trouble with Alma(Emma) parents.I've found other children a Josephine (b 1897) and possibly 2 brothers Joseph Alexander and Patrick but with the last name spelled ROBICHEAU. This was found in the New Brunswick archive index.
If anyone has any further information, I really appreciate the help.
