Looking for info on Carl Anderson of Oakville CT? My mom and brother and sister have traced their line back as far as about the 1400's in a small village near Motala, Sweden. There are pictures, etc...
Carl was born about 1885 (???) Emigrated to US ??? He had relatives already here.
Carl married Mable Waugh of Morris CT and had 7 children (Doris, Ken, Milton, Dexter, Alice, Arlene, and Fred - not sure if the order is correct...)
They met in an Advent Christian Church in Waterbury CT on Cherry St.(later burned down)about 1917 or 18 (???). He couldn't read english well yet and mistakenly walked into the wrong church. He'd been looking for the Lutheran church (of course). He'd sat next to the most beautiful girl he'd ever seen (so goes the story) and later married her.
Carl worked at a shoe factory in Watertown CT. They lived on Shelter Hill Avenue in Oakdale. One surviving child (Fred)still lives there.
They have only one surviving male carrying the name who live somewhere in CT, I think.
