Funeral Card Friday - Martin Anderson

On Friday, March 12, 1915, the funeral for my 3rd-great grandfather, Martin Anderson, was held from his home, 684 Plain St. Brockton, Mass. Interment was in South Easton Cemetery, South Easton, Mass.

Born in Sweden, Martin's original name was "Martin Andreasson". When Martin and his family came to America in 1898, their surname was changed to Anderson. They settled in North Easton, Massachusetts. Martin was a blacksmith. 

In 1903, his wife, Augusta, passed away. The following year, his daughter, Anna Larson, and her family arrived in America. In 1905, his daughter, Amando Anderson, passed away. 

In the final years of his life, Martin relocated to Brockton, Massachusetts and lived with his son, August, and his family. Martin passed away at his home on March 9, 1915.
