1910 Us Census

This is a census record of my great-grandfather, Henry Walfred Anderson. His birth name in Sweden was Henning Valfrid Isaakson (mentioned in previous post about a research letter) , but he changed his name when  he came to the United States.

When I found this record, James R Watts was a familiar name. When my grandfather died, a civil war sabre and a Grand Army of The Republic medal both entitled to James Watts were found under his bed. More likely his father’s due to the birth date. James R Watts would also appear later as the person Henry Anderson would always know on his WWII Draft Card.
