Biography of Emil Anderson
Saunders County, NE Biographies





EMIL ANDERSON.
The wealth which Saunders county derives from its farms is due in part to the natural fertility of the soil and to climatic conditions and it is also due in large measure to the progressiveness, the industry and the efficiency of the farmers of the county, among whom is numbered Emil Anderson, a resident of Richland township. He has passed his entire life in this county as he was born in Stocking township on the 2d of February, 1883, of the marriage of Olof and Lena (Peterson) Anderson. Until about eighteen years of age he devoted considerable time to attending school in district No. 48 although he also assisted his father with the work of the homestead.

After putting aside his textbooks Mr. Anderson concentrated his energies upon general agricultural pursuits and has never had occasion to regret his choice of an occupation as he has found farming both profitable and congenial. He is still operating the homestead, which is well improved, and his well directed labors are rewarded by excellent crops. He also raises stock to some extent and derives a substantial addition to his income from that branch of his business. At one time he was a mail carrier on a rural route out of Swedeburg for six months.

On the 17th of December, 1912, Mr. Anderson was united in marriage to Miss Minnie Freeman, of Swedeburg, a daughter of J. P. and Ida (Hockinson) Freeman, who are now living upon a farm in Stocking precinct. Mr. and Mrs. Anderson have one child, Ida Louise, born May 22, 1918.

Mr. Anderson votes independently, following his own judgment rather than the dictates of party leaders. His religious faith is that of the Swedish Mission church and his daily life conforms to high moral standards. He is recognized as an energetic and capable young farmer and his personal qualities are such that he has gained the warm friendship of many.
