Isaac and Annie Christina (HAMMANGSON) SWANSON were natives of Kisa, Sweden. On 3 May 1883 their daughter Sophia married Andrew ANDERSON. In his native country Mr. SWANSON carried on agricultural pursuits, but subsequent to his marriage, 29 years ago, he removed to America, came to Polk Township, Jefferson County, where he located on a farm and the following year Mrs. SWANSON joined her husband. After it was decided to start a settlement where Packwood now stands, Mr. and Mrs. SWANSON removed there, their house being the first built in the town. The mother died Oct. 27, 1911, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. ANDERSON..... (See ANDERSON.)
