In December 2021,  Robbins family historian and cousin Philip Rhea sent in this newspaper clipping (see third paragraph) which  was located during a recent research trip to the Mid-West Genealogy Center in Independence MO and the Missouri Archives in Jefferson City.

Justin Watkins researched this further and determined that the article was transcribed from the St Charles Cosmo, not the Cosmos Monitor: “Child of Mr. Anderson – d. February 1884 – bur. Robbins Cemetery near Portage des Sioux – St. Charles Cosmos, 27 February 1884 – SCCGS Obituaries II: 259”

Gary started researching Mr. Anderson and the Anderson family starting with Andrew/Peter. He was born in Denmark in 1844. The Denmark king died in 1864 and the successor was undetermined. Prussia and Austria used this as a reason to invade Denmark in 1864. Peter’s brother Hans died in 1864, maybe due to the invasion. These events look like they may have put Andrew/Peter on a ship bound for the United States in 1866.

Betty Oldenburg Kluesner responded to a Facebook request for information on the Anderson family and posted twice letting us know that she is related to the Nolle family, specifics about the family, along with photos of the Anderson family farm on Black Walnut Rd.

Betty confirmed that it was Caroline who was born in 1879 and died in 1884 and is presumed buried at the Black Walnut Cemetery. Our restoration team did not find a gravestone for Caroline during the 2021/2022 restoration.
