I believe this passenger was my gggrandfather Herman Anderson. Herman was born in Skjeber, Norway, Dec. 3, 1826, and is a son of Andrew** and Carrie Sophia Anderson, both of whom passed their entire lives in Norway, where the former was born in 1781 and the latter in 1791. .He was educated in the schools of his native land, where he was reared to maturity. As a young man he went to Denmark and later into Germany and Sweden, being absent for a total of seven years and then returning to Norway. He was thereafter employed at the baker's trade in Christiania until 1861, when he immigrated to America and came to Wisconsin, where so many of his worthy countrymen had preceded him. He located in Waupaca county and soon afterward entered the Union service, enlisting as a private in Company I, Fifteenth Wisconsin volunteer infantry, with which he continued to serve until the close of the great Civil War, taking part in many of the important and sanguinary battles which marked the progress of the great conflict between the north and south. Among the more notable engagements in which he participated may be mentioned the following: Island No. 10, Stone River, Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge, Dalton, Chattanooga, siege of Atlanta, King's Mountain, Jonesboro and Resaca. He served under General Sherman and was known as a gallant and faithful soldier. Source: History of Richland County Wisconsin
