Lars Anderson

According to his rebaptism record of 23 October 1855 at Brigham City, Utah, Lars was born in Denmark; he was about twenty-two years old and may be the Lars Anderson (age 21) who crossed the Atlantic on the ship James Nesmith, arriving at New Orleans on 23 February 1855.

Additional research is needed to identify the pioneer company with which he crossed the plains.
