Sibline: Karl, Anna, Lotten

Anna Elisabeth
b. Nilsson September 17, 1873
d. December 18, 1962 (buried at Längbro, Örebro, in the family grave)
Married to Johan (John) Johansson

Anna was born in what the family called "Grandpa's cottage"  (Morfars stuga), located in Lanna, at the golf course, near Hidinge church.

Anna and Johan lived with their four children in a small apartment (one room and kitchen) at Drottninggatan 13 in Örebro. The entrance to their apartment was below the red 'x' mark in the photo on the right. Above that, on the second floor, was the window in the stairway (with a cupboard for groceries). To the left you see first the kitchen, then the two windows of the room.

Later on, the family also rented two rooms to the right of the stairs. At first, Ivar had one room and the other was rented to other people. Later Arne had one room and Peg the other.

The entrance to the outhouses is on the lower right in the photo on the right.

(Photo on the left: the south-west corner of the yard. The houses behind are along Köpmangatan.)

They later moved to Restalundsgatan 37 (near Eyravallen so that Johan could watch games from the balcony! You could see half the arena.) They had a kitchen (below the cross on the photo), a livingroom and toilet, up two stairs like the one in the photo - very hard for Johan to manage on his crutches. Bathroom in the basement.

Harald (I think) had a summerhouse at the lake "Leken" where Ture Wadsten's family also built a cottage. As of 1999, it was still owned by the Carlbark family ("#6 Leken"). I drove by during a visit to Sweden, and saw the name on the mailbox.
