His name is "Anders Larsen" on the original overland company roster. He and his family emigrated from Sweden on the ship James Nesmith in 1855. Son, Carl A. is listed on the ship but he is not on the overland company roster. His sister Johanna's reminiscences indicate that Carl was kidnapped in Missouri and the family was forced to continue on without him. Andrew's son, Joseph Willard, was born on the plains.
The emigration report lists the Larsen's as traveling with the Jensen family, further research is needed to determine why these two families traveled together.
