Searching for ANDERSON/JOHNSON ancestors from Plaquemines Parish, LA
Among the many ancestors I am researching are my Paternal Great-grandparents, Peter Louis Anderson and Rosalina Johnson. Peter was born in Kalmar, Sweden about 1844 and Rosalina was born in Plaquemines Parish in 1853. I have more info on Rosalina than Peter.
He arrived in the US about 1878 (according to the 1900 census). He was a sailor all of his adult life and in fact died aboard the SS Chalmette in 1900. Famiy records say that he also had a brother, Charles, that lived with them for a while, but died during that time.
Their first child, Lenora, was born in Nov. 1878. I am the granddaughter of his son, George Frederick Anderson.
