Anders Svensson (1864-1891) came to America from Sölvesborg, Sweden in about 1883. Judging from the correspondence and personal
effects found on his body at the time of his death, Svensson (or "Andrew Swanson" as he chose to be known after 1885) was
a traveling preacher. He corresponded with several individuals in St. Paul, Minn., but it is unclear how much time he may
have spent in that city. Envelopes are addressed to him in: Helena, Mont. (July 1889); Red Bluff, Calif. (October 1889); and,
San Francisco (1890). Correspondence indicates that Svensson came to the place of his death, Staten Island, San Joaquin County,
in August 1890.
