FatherOtto Dahlgren ANDERSSON (1858-1914)
Misc. Notes
He was born in 1882 in DuBois, Pennsylvania and came to Ashland in 1887 with his parents. He was educated in the Ashland, Wisconsin schools. As a youth he was a teamster in the woods with his father. He then spent two years as a fireman for the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad; followed by one year as a brakeman for the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha Railroad; followed by eight years as a brakeman for the Soo Line Railroad. On 1 June 1900 he was a delivery man. ®3789From 1902 to 1905 he was a motorman for the street railway company in Ashland. They were married on 15 April 1905 at the home of his father, the Otto Anderson Hotel, at 609 St. Clair Street in Ashland. They lived there following their wedding. In 1916 he bought 120 acres of land near Sanborn, Wisconsin, on “Swede Alley” and farmed it for three years. In 1919 he purchased Lake View Farm on Lake Park Road (34th Street East) (300 5th Avenue East) in Ashland, Wisconsin, from Esther Haskins of Odanah. There was 1100 feet of lake frontage. The house was yellow and the barn was red. He had as many as 40 Guernsey cows and also bought milk for his dairy. He had a retail milk route for twelve years. He made his own hay and put up ice from adjacent Lake Superior. The saw dust to insulate the ice was brought from Delta, Wisconsin. They went to Bayfield to see President Coolidge on 21 Aug 1928. He traded his Hupmobile for a Buick in 1929. ®162 On 4 September 1941, 24 Guernsey cows, two horses, 2 pigs, 450 chickens and the farm equipment and household goods of Lake View Farm were sold at auction. In October 1941 Charley and Ida moved to a big apartment at Princeton and South 60th Street in Chicago, Illinois, in a 15 family apartment house which he had traded for his Ashland farm. (They did not have enough furniture to fill the apartment). Charlie had to act as janitor, repairman, etc., and “I sure feel right to home in Chicago. This is more like living than at the Lake View Farm.” They lived at 643 West 62nd Street, Chicago, Illinois on 30 October 1941. By June 1944 they had moved to 8821 Sacramento Street in Evergreen Park, Chicago where they lived until they returned to Ashland in 1953. He worked as a conductor in Chicago for the Outer Belt Line Railroad Company. On 22 June 1953 they left Chicago for an apartment at 1020 2nd Avenue West in Ashland. On 16 February 1957 they moved to Bayfield to live with Ernest and Mildred in their new house, but returned to Ashland after 4 months. On 20 September 1958 they moved to an apartment on 3rd street in Ashland, and later lived in a trailer home next to daughter Bernes and Tom’s house on Lake Park Road in Ashland. Charles and Ida were buried in Graves 3E and 4E of the east one half of Lot B, Section C of Mount Hope Cemetery in Ashland, Wisconsin.

Yvonne La Pointe Moody
For a little girl living on the shores of Lake Superior, traveling by car or train to visit Grandma Ida and Grandpa Charlie in Chicago was a thrill. My remembrances of their first few years in Chicago and on Lake View Farm before that are few because I was very young. After their purchase of the Evergreen Park house I was old enough to visit for several weeks each summer and with my family over the Christmas holidays. There were wonderful outings with Grandpa to certain bakeries or shops and we always had Scandinavian and other specialties to enjoy. There was a back yard garden with the most delicious strawberries which Grandpa tended with great care and was diligent in chasing off the birds that loved to harvest them. There were many trips to museums, planetariums, aquariums, even airports, all of which made for interesting reports in my grade school classrooms when I returned home.
Grandma Ida was not only my grandmother but my friend. We played games, sewed and cooked together and, as I grew into teenage years, she was the one I went to when I needed to talk. Our family spent one winter living with her and Grandpa when my parents bought a small convenience store and I attended a high school in Chicago that had many more students than the population of Bayfield. It was a difficult transition but in Ida's soothing and levelheaded way, she helped me integrate quite well. Through all of this time, Charlie continued to work in the railroad yards and seemed to enjoy every moment.
Grandma and Grandpa returned to Northern Wisconsin where they lived out their remaining years. We saw them frequently and Grandma never changed, although Grandpa's failing memory became difficult. As her health deteriorated, she accepted it with grace and her unfailing faith in God helped her. Her last words to me were that she would soon be joining our baby son who had recently died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. In her own way, she helped a grieving mother.

Charles and Ida were buried in Graves 3E and 4E of the east one half of Lot B, Section C of Mount Hope Cemetery in Ashland, Wisconsin. GPS coordinates of the gravesite are Map datum NAD 27 UTM Zone Conus 15 T 0660703 Easting 5158397 Northing.
