General: He was a resident of the farm area of Slogvig, Tysær Parish, Rogaland fylke, Norway. He was a member of a 'bonde' family (farmers owning land). As the oldest son, he inherited the farm. (Slooper book)
"He got a deed in 1799 at the settlement of the estate of his father for 280 dollars. In 1802 he sold three barrels of corn and got 18 barrels or 6 foll. They fed a horse, 3 cows, 3 heifers, 18 sheep and goats. On the farm, wood to burn and grazing were fairly poor. The mill was almost enough for the house. There were two tenant farms that belonged to the farm paying 6 dollars yearly. the assessment for the whole farm was then 250 dollars. Anders paid 10 dollars for the silver tax in 1816 -- a pretty high tax." (Tysvær bygdebok #2)
