Charles Anderson, who is now living retired in Houston, was an early settler in Houston township, and was for
a number of years actively engaged in the work of agricultural improvement as a general farmer. He was born in
Sweden in 1844 and was a young and single man when he came from his native land to Houston county, Minn., taking
up his residence with a brother who lived on Swede Bottom in Houston township. After residing with that brother
for a number of years, during which time he was engaged in agricultural work, he became employed in the elevator
at Houston, but spent only a short time in that occupation, soon taking a farm, that where W. R. Anderson now lives,
which he operated for a few years. Then on account of an accident, he sold the place and bought the farm in section
8, where his son Amil C. now resides, and which he operated until the fall of 1914, when he retired. Mr. Anderson
was married in Houston county to Anna Johnson, who, like himself, was born in Sweden, the date of her birth being
Jan. 19, 1844. They have reared a family of six children.
