General Notes:
From the book: Our Life, 1882-1982, Akron, Iowa:
Ivan Wilfred Anderson was born Jan. 10, 1918 to Mr. & Mrs Arthur Anderson in North Vernon, Indiana. As a small boy he moved with his family to Montrose, South Dakota and later to the Madison area. He served in the U.S.Army from 1939-1945.
Ivan and Marianne Kerr were married on June 11, 1947 in the Akron United Methodist church.
Ivan came to Akron in the fall of 1946 where he worked at the Akron Locker Plant, then owned and operated by Mel Lias.
Ivan and Marianne lived in Sioux Falls, Huron and Madison, South Dakota during their first year of marriage.
They resided in Holdrege, NE from Oct. 1960-Jun 1962 before they returned to their home in Akron, Iowa at 421 S. 7th St.

Ivan served Military time at Camp Adair, Oregon:
Why is the camp named "Adair?"
Camp Adair was named in honor of Henry Rodney Adair, a West Point graduate and descendant of Oregon pioneers.
Lieutenant Adair, an officer in the 10th Cavalry, was the first Oregonian killed in the 1916 Mexican border clash.
When General Pershing pushed over the Mexican border in search of the bandit general Pancho Villa, Lt. Adair wiped out two machine gun nests and accounted for more than 30 Mexican bandits before he was killed.

For Camp Adair to be constructed, many families had to give up their homes. The government rerouted railroad tracks and roads, relocated cemeteries, and wiped out the small community of Wells, Oregon.
Most evacuees were farmers. Many were descendants of pioneers who had crossed the plains in covered wagons to make their homes in the Willamette valley. They had no choice but to sell their land, livestock, and machinery and move out.

At a time when the population of Corvallis was only 14,000 people, as many as 30,000 to 50,000 soldiers and civilian employees lived and worked in nearby Camp Adair. Camp Adair became Oregon's second largest city; only Portland was larger.
The Army constructed about 1,700 buildings at the camp, including barracks, machine shops, stores, kitchens, theaters, hospitals, and chapels.

Originally known as the "Frontier Division," the 104th later adopted the name "Timberwolf." The army activated the division on September 15, 1942, at Camp Adair. It was made up of 840 officers and 16,000 enlisted men. (I think Ivan was a member of the "Timberwolf" divison.)
They fought in France in September 1944, and also saw action in Belgium and Germany. In March 1945, they crossed the Rhine River, capturing several towns and many German troops.Β After fighting in the European theater for ten months, this division returned home.

After the War:
In July, 1944, the local newspaper reported that Camp Adair had been abandoned and the soldiers sent away.
When the divisions left, the U.S. Army turned the hospital at Adair over to the U.S. Navy. The Navy brought wounded men from the Pacific Theater to Adair for treatment. The hospital was enlarged to take care of about 3,600 patients.
Shortly after the last division left, part of Camp Adair served as a prisoner-of-war (POW) camp for Italians and Germans. Civilians in Benton and Polk counties were mostly unaware of the prisoners' presence.
Soldiers who trained at Camp Adair remembered many aspects of Oregon's climate and natural surroundings. Many soldiers got poison oak, encountered snakes, choked on summer's dust, and got sore muscles climbing Coffin Butte. Most remembered training in the driving Oregon winter rain.
After sloshing through the countryside, marching in the rain, fording swollen streams, pushing and pulling vehicles through the mud, and trying to keep their equipment from rusting, many soldiers felt like they were living in a swamp. It's no wonder they called it "Swamp Adair."

General Notes:
Transcribed from a letter written by Marianne Anderson, April 26, 1997
Dear George,

Is a gloomy day here, so a good time to write a letter your way.
I enclose 4 forms you sent for family tree data. One on Ivan?s parents, one on Ivan & myself; one on our oldest daughter Patricia & her family; and one on Cindy & her family. I didn't do a separate page for Richard as he's not married now & has no children to list. Hope I did them right. There was one other different data sheets I didn?t do, I wasn?t sure who to put on it & dates, etc would be same as on the ones I did.
Thank you for letting us keep the pictures you sent of Ivan's parents. And thanks for calling when you got back in Arizona. Sorry you couldn't come then & hope you'll be able to do so soon in June.
Glad to hear you had a success in finding property in Arizona. In Phoenix, or where? When do you plan to be retiring?
You asked for information on Ivan's Dad & Mom.
Arthur Imanuel (Ivan?s dad) was born on the Anderson homestead in Kearny County, near Axtell, NE. He was one of 10 children born to William Ernest and Matilda (Tillie) Christina Johnson. There were seven boys and three girls. One son died at 9 months old. The rest lived good long lives, all are now deceased. They were active members of Bethany Lutheran Church, rural Axtell. Ernest and Matilda were both born in Sweden, both met in the U.S. where they were married.
When Arthur left the homestead, he farmed in Nebraska for several years then moved to North Vernon, Indiana, where he met Ivan?s Mother Bessie Clarke. She was a nurse at a hospital there. Bessie was born in England (dates on data sheet). She came to the US at age 18 and lived in North Vernon, Indiana. They married in 1916.
They lived and farmed there for five years, where Ivan & his sister, Lillian were both born.
They moved to North Dakota in 1921. Arthur farmed at a rural Madison, S.D. for several years & raised an outstanding herd of Jersey cows.
Bessie was the youngest of 7 children born to Albert & Lucy (Padfield) Clarke in Holcombe, England. Three boys & four girls. To our knowledge they are all deceased. (note: when Ivan was in the service overseas in Europe, he was wounded and sent to England where he was able to go and visit one of Bessie?s brothers-then living in Bristol, England.
About 1939, Arthur sold the farm near Madison, South Dakota and moved to Calfornia. They were divorced then and Bessie moved in with Lillian & her family, where she remained for the rest of her life. She is buried at the Madison, South Dakota cemetery. I believe it?s called Graceland Cemetery.
Arthur lived in California the rest of his life, but came back to Midwest several times to visit. He had various jobs in Calif.; ran a grocery store; worked for Port Washington; for Army Air Corps at San Pedro; at Port of Embarkation; as a Port Waterman, retiring in 1947. He is buried at the Green Hills Memorial Park at Long Beach, California.
I hope the above information is of interest to you. Any other questions, just ask.
My next step is go to the photo albums and try to find some to send you of us, our kids & grandkids. Hopefully some not too old but fairly good for you to copy. I'm glad you can copy them and return photos as usually have only one of any of them.
While I'm writing, here?s a list about our 3 kids. Patricia (Pat) took training after high school as an x-ray technician. Her husband, Dale is a chiropractor. They live in LAS VEGAS, NV. JEFF GRADUATED LAS MAY (1996) FROM UNIV. OF SAN DIEGO WITH A DEGREE IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION. JEREMY GRADED IN MAY FROM THE UNIV. OF COLORADO AT BOULDER WITH A DEGREE IN MUSIC, HE'S AN EXCELLENT MUSICIAN, PLAYS THE VIOLIN. JOSHUA WILL BE A FRESHMAN IN HIGH SCHOOL NEXT FALL.
RICHARD GRADUATED FROM COLLEGE WITH A DEGREE IN COMPUTER SCIENCE. HE'S CURRENTLY SELF-EMPLOYED AND LIVES IN KENSINGTON, California.
CYNTHIA (CINDY) IS A REGISTERED NURSE AND WORKS IN A HOPSITAL IN SEATTLE, Washington. HER HUSBAND, John, CURRENTLY WORKS AT A CASINO. THEY LIVE IN EDMONDS, Washington. JENNIFER AND AMANDA WILL SOON BE 12 & 13, AND BE IN THE 7TH AND 8TH GRADES IN THE FALL.
BEST REGARDS,
IVAN & MARIANNE

4. William Ernest Anderson,22 son of Lars Anderson and Martha Cajsa Petersjotten, was born on 4 Apr 1859 in Alboga, Alboga, , Vδstra Gφtaland, Sweden,50 died on 20 Jan 1941 in Axtell, Kearney, Nebraska, United States50 at age 81, and was buried about 20 Jan 1941 in Axtell, Kearney, Nebraska, United States. Another name for William was Ernest Wilhelm Anderson.

General Notes: Note taken from the published Kearney County Directory (date unk) as furnished by Marianne Kerr, wife of Ivan W. Anderson .

Ernest William (Wilhelm) Anderson was born on April 4,1859 in Alboga County, Alvsberg Province,Vasterget, Sweden, the only son of Lars & Cajsa Anderson. He had 3 sisters: Selma,Alvida, & Mathilda. He emigrated with his parents to Burlington,Iowa in 1863 at the age of 4. His father secured employment with the railroad, but was killed while on construction of the railroad over the Mississippi River when Earnest was only 15 years of age. At a young age, Ernest too became employed by the railroad until coming to Kearney County,Nebraska in 1881, to improve upon the homestead land 7 miles southeast of Minden, which is still in the family and farmed by the sons of the late Lawrence Anderson.

The wife of Ernest Anderson was Mathilda Johnson, who too, was born in Djursdala Kalmar Smoland,Sweden in 1866 & emigrated to Orion,Ill. with her parents in 1871, at the age of 5. She grew up in Orion & Geniso area, coming to Kearney County in 1882. On May 31,1884 at Bethany Parsonage, she was married to Ernest Anderson and they had nine children: Hattie,Arthur,James,Effie,Robert (died as an infant), Lawrence,Myrtle,Lavern, and A.L. (Andy). All 9 children were baptized at the Bethany Luthern Church, where Earnest & Mathilda (Tillie) were lifelong members. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary at the farm home in 1934 during the dust bowl years & their 55th also on the homestead. Earnest died in 1941 & Mathilda in 1957.

All their children attended District 49 school, 3/4 mile south and 1/2 mile east of the homestead site. This school was established on Aug. 16th,1883. Another fact of interest is that all their 29 grandchildren are living as of this date. (date of this publication unk)

General Notes: Jan 1891 was appointed sub-postmaster-Post Office-Holcombe,Somerset England. Albert was officially installed on the 3rd of March 1891 as sub-postmaster. Albert served his duties thoughout the 1890's and his borther Arthur took over on the 15th of March 1899. It seems the reason Albert left his position was :Deficiency in Accounts!. (information from The Greenwood Tree-written by Dr. Andrew Perkins-Norwich,England) Albert died at Sam's home in Brown County,Indiana.

Ancestry.com Posting, Andrew Perkins:
In 1872, the entry in Morris' Directory for the village of Holcombe in north-east Somerset, listed Isaac PADFIELD as a "shopkeeper and sub-distributor of stamps". When Isaac died in 1885 his wife Emma (nee WIDCOMBE) was appointed sub-postmistress, although only after a nomination for Mrs. Badman to take over the Post Office was rejected due to the "inconvenient situation of her house". When Emma died on 9th January 1891, her son-in-law Albert CLARKE, eldest son of George Clarke and Ann WILLCOX, was appointed sub-postmaster. Albert was installed officially on the 3rd March that year at a salary of £7 17s per annum plus 10s a week allowances.
Besides their duties to the Post Office, both Albert and Isaac were well-respected preachers on the Shepton Mallet Wesleyan Methodist Circuit. A commemorative plaque in Holcombe Methodist Chapel, for example, records over 40 years service that Isaac gave to the circuit and a preaching plan on display at the Radstock Mining Museum in Haydon shows that Isaac was preaching as early as February 1841. Albert's work with the church is recorded in a report in the Shepton Mallet Journal of 24th March 1893 (p. 5) of the final service in Holcombe chapel before its rebuilding.
"... The aim of the trustees was to make the closing service a simple rendition of old-fashioned Methodist doctrines, hymns and tunes, as preached and sung a generation ago, and such as would be in keeping with the antiquity of the place [the chapel] itself. To do this no better representation of the wishes of the people could be found than in Mr. A. Clarke who took the Sunday morning service. He is a Methodist of the fourth generation and a man of clear, strong pronounced Methodist opinions..."
Albert continued to serve as sub-postmaster throughout the 1890's and his brother Arthur took over on 15th March 1899 at a salary of £16 2s per annum. A minute to the Post-master General explains the reason for Albert discontinuing as sub-postmaster.
"No.424. Holcombe S.O. (Bath). Mr Albert Clarke Subpostmaster. Deficiency in Accounts. Office declared vacant. 411073. Holcombe.
The Postmaster General,
The accompanying papers show that Mr. Clarke the Sub Postmaster of Holcombe, Bath, has for some time past given a considerable amount of trouble to the Accountant General's Department in connection with his account; and has persisted in holding surplus cash far in excess of his authorised reserve despite repeated cautions on this score. On the 16th September [1898] the accounts showed a deficiency of over £8 which the Sub Postmaster explained by stating that "he must have been robbed". This explanation seemed so unsatisfactory that Money Order and Savings Bank business was suspended on the 21st October and the accounts were then found deficient by £25. The Sub Postmaster could give no explanation of this deficiency; but made good the amount on the following day. The business of the Office has been entirely in the hands of the Sub Postmaster's wife [Lucy] and there would seem to be a reason to believe that the official money has been abstracted by her for some reason unknown to her husband. The sureties of the Sub Postmaster the Provident Clerks and General Guarantee Association have withdrawn their guarantee but the Sub Postmaster has offered to place £200 in their hands conditionally on their renewing their guarantee. The Comptroller and Accountant General does not however approve of this proposal and in the circumstances there seems to be no alternative but to declare the Office vacant forthwith and I submit that this step be taken. The Sub Postmaster was appointed in 1891 and his salary is £16 2s a year.
January 1899. App[rove]d Jan 11/99."
There is no record of how Albert appeared in the eyes of the villagers after being removed as sub-postmaster, nor indeed of his rejected offer of over 12 times his annual salary to guarantee the renewal of his sub-postmastership. Clearly for someone in Albert's position, being found "deficient" in his accounts was not a matter to boast about. One wonders whether his wife Lucy was actually responsible for running the Post Office, or whether blame was laid upon her to 'save face' for Albert.
So why was money going missing? The Somerset Standard for Friday 4th May 1900 gave, perhaps a clue.
"An interesting presentation took place on Sunday evening in this place of worship [Holcombe Methodist Chapel] after the conclusion of the service. Mr. Albert Clarke formerly postmaster in the village and local preacher and prominent supporter of Methodism in the Shepton Mallet Circuit is leaving the village for a new home in Elwood, Indiana, in the United States with his two sons and daughter. On behalf of many who greatly regret his departure, Mr. W. H. Padfield presented Mr. Clark with a handsome sum of money as a token of their deep respect."
On Wednesday 2nd May 1900, Albert, Lucy, two daughters (Ada and Bessie) and a granddaughter (Caroline Grey) left Liverpool on the Oceanic bound for New York. Further newspaper accounts from 1899 and research in archives in Indiana has shown that six of Albert and Lucy's seven children emigrated to the United States from 1896 onwards. Might one reason for the missing money have been that, depite their strong religious beliefs, seeming the demise of the Mendip coalfields, Albert and Lucy thought it necessary for their children to move away and the lure of America provided the ideal opportunity?
Of the six children that emigrated, three (including the author's great-grandmother, Margaret) returned home. Albert and Lucy remained in the United States. Lucy died on the 2nd January 1915 at the home of their son, the Rev. Fred Clarke in Anderson, Madison County, Indiana, and is buried in Maplewood Cemetery. Albert died 8 years later on the 7th October 1923 at the home of their eldest son Samuel, near Bean Blossom, Brown County, Indiana and is buried in Bethel Church Cemetery. Recently the author has traced and met descendants of Fred and Sam, including the Rev. Albert Lafayette Clarke (the 93 year old son of Fred) and Betty WEATHERFORD (granddaughter of Sam), both of whom still live in Indiana. Descendants of Bessie, who also remained in the United States have yet to be found.
