I am trying to help a woman in Sweden who is trying to find information about her grandfather's brothers, Johan/John Bernhard ANDERSON, born 31 January 1885 and Carl Hjalmar/Elmer ANDERSON, born 17 October 1882, both in Sweden. The brothers are both thought to have come to Nebraska, one in 1904 and one in 1909. Carl, who never married, corresponded with his brother in Sweden, and wrote in November 1967 that he was living at the Shady Rest Lodge(Wakefield Nursing Home?) in Wakefield NE, a nursing home owned or run by Theodore O. JONES. Sometime in his life he had gotten his hands frostbitten, and may have had some fingers amputated.
John ANDERSON married in the U.S. (wife's name unknown) and had two children: John, who probably died young, and Louise.
Does anyone recognize either of these men? Any clues, suggestions or information will be welcome. I have not been able to identify either of them in the 1910, 1920 or 1930 census records, but the names are so common that it would be easy to miss them.
