Searching for more information about Andrew/Anders Peter Adamson, living most of his adult life in Webster County, Iowa. (Census 1870-1900)
In the 1880 census he lives in Dodge, Boone, Iowa, working as a taylor. The family is back in Hardin again in the 1885 Census for Iowa.
Ander Peter/Andrew Peter is my 3d great grandfather. My 2nd great grandmother was born "illegitimate", but Anders Peter Andersson/Adamson claimed the child to be his.
His parents (Anders Adamsson and Maja/Maria Simonsdotter) emigrated in 1846. AP emigrated in 1850 with wife Brita Cajsa Lind (born 1810) and daughter Carolina Mathilda (born 1848) and his brother Fredric. Father Anders/Andrew Adamson, born Dec 19, 1800 lives with son Andrew P on the 1870 Census. He is then widowed.
"My" Anders Peter Andersson/Adamson was born on April 30, 1824 in Veta, Östergötland, Sweden.
I have found the following on www.findagrave.org that I believe to be the same person that I have found mentioned here on Ancestry. I have contacted several persons who have made entries about him here on the message boards, without any response.

It seems that Andrew P was married at least three times. Wives: Brita Cajsa Lind, b Nov 14, 1810, Malinda LeGrand (possibly Lagergren) and Emma Carolina Peterson, b May 31, 1849.

One of the children, Emaline Elizabeth Adamson, born June 10, 1888 in Boone County, Iowa, married James M Godwin (2nd marriage for him).
Ida, b abt 1884, married Eugene Taylor.
Louis, b abt June 882, married Vernice Lorell
