Anders was born at Håkantorp in Sireköping parish in Malmöhus län 15 Jan 1839. There is a note in the HFL for Sireköping 1839-44 AI:5 page 78 indicating his father was Peter Kristiansson, who is listed on the same page above Bengta with wife & children. So perhaps Anders was Anders Petersson before he was Anders Peter Persson. Bengta & Anders move to Ekeby parish in 1840, first to Gedsholm, then Ejlestorp. In Ekeby HFL 1840-46 AI:5 page 61, she is listed with Anders and daughters Johanna born 24 Apr 1842 and Maria born 11 Jan 1845. A note indicates she married Per Andersson in 1841 (see Ekeby CI:2 page 259). In the next HFL, they appear on page 56 of AI:6. Bengta dies 3 Dec 1846. Per Andersson marries Hanna Johansdotter and they have a son Måns 11 May 1848.
