The Anderson family came to Ypsilanti, North Dakota from Canby, Minnesota in the early 1900s, settling on a farm in Corwin Township, about five miles southwest of Ypsilanti, in Stutsman County.
Their children were: Rasmus, Andrew, Hans, Anna, Laura, Nellie, Claudine, Norma, and Gertrude.
Rasmus married Sophia Beckman. Andrew married Myra Johnson, and they operated the farm after his parents left. Andrew and Myra lived on the farm until Andrew's death, after which Myra continued to reside there for a few years before selling the farm to the Aljoe brothers. Myra was a clerk for Corwin Township for several years, and was also a clerk for the Corwin School District until the school was closed.
In 1982, when the Ypsilanti Community Centennial Book was published, Myra was living in Montpelier.
