Anna Johanna Halverson Anderson's Pension Application
This is part of the pension application of my great-grandmother, Anna Johanna Halverson Anderson. This is one of the pieces of information that helped correct misinformation that one of her sons gave at the time of her death. Thank goodness it was not my grandfather who gave the information. Her death certificate said her maiden name was Olson and her father's Christian name was unknown. That of course is also a major clue that her son might not have known what he was taking about. He also said she was from Christiana (now Oslo) which also was incorrect. She was from Lier in Buskerud, Norway.
