Varberg is today one of Sweden's most popular seaside resorts. The farm where Augusta Charlotta Anderson was born is still there. This farmhouse was built by Augusta's brother John Anderson before 1890 to replace the old farmhouse. He had inherited the family farm and then he later sold it and migrated to Youngstown, OH, about 1890 with his daughter Victoria, followed in 1903 by his wife Charlotte and their daughter Bertha. In 1930, he went back to Varberg, Sweden, as a widower. Charlotte and John's parents, Beata Persdotter and Anders Larsson, were apparently doing quite well. Augusta had 8 brothers and sisters.
Anders Larsson and his wife Beata Persdotter married in Mjöbäck, Sweden, 1850. They are the parents of Augusta Anderson Benson, wife of Ben John Benson of New Castle.
