The little Anderson house on the prairie

  1. We have a piece of the old house in our garage.Great Grandpa lived in the twin cities and came up on weekends to work on the house. He was a machinist.The old house was a Swedish style log cabin, the logs being cut into square logs and not left round.Wood siding was placed of the logs, and painted red, so the house was always called the red house.The first public school that Grandpa Anderson went to was in Swedish.Minn. was pretty well settled when John was ready to purchase this land, so he had to purchase less than prime land, swampy land.  GreggR From: Crossing Fronteras To: yochefgregg@sbcglobal.net Sent: Tuesday, April 28, 2015 9:32 PM Subject: [New post] The little Anderson house on the prairie #yiv0466555008 a:hover {color:red;}#yiv0466555008 a {text-decoration:none;color:#0088cc;}#yiv0466555008 a.yiv0466555008primaryactionlink:link, #yiv0466555008 a.yiv0466555008primaryactionlink:visited {background-color:#2585B2;color:#fff;}#yiv0466555008 a.yiv0466555008primaryactionlink:hover, #yiv0466555008 a.yiv0466555008primaryactionlink:active {background-color:#11729E;color:#fff;}#yiv0466555008 WordPress.com | Emily López posted: “My great great grandparents John and Augusta Anderson (born in 1865 and 1873 respectively, both in Sweden) built this log cabin on their land in Foley, Minnesota. I’m not sure in what year, but it was before my great grandfather Elmer was born in 1902” | |
