Anders Bengtson

Summary: He was born in Hanstrom Farm (Faxarn Parish) - Alvborg Ian, Sweden. Married Gertrude Rambo on November 22, 1668. She was born October 19, 1650, in Kingsessing, New Sweden, Pennsylvania. He was also known as Andrew Bankson in English records and was said to have written his name as Andreas Bengtston. I have seen the following but it is not proven: "Son of Lars Bengtsson and unknown mother". Historical records in Philadelphia indicate that Lars Bengtsson was a passenger on Ship Mercurius when it arrived in America in 1656. The entry lists Lars and his four sons. Ander's grandparents were Jon Bengtsson and Bergetta Niladtr of Sweden." He drowned in the Delaware River in 1705.
