Two Granada persons were killed Monday near Fairmont, when their car skidded and was hit broadside by a semi truck.

Killed were Wilmer Anderson, 54, and his mother, Mrs. Gertrude Anderson, 80, both of rural Granada.

The accident occurred at about 1:12 p.m. on Hwy. 15, three miles south of town. Police said a witness gave this account:

Anderson, was was heading north into town, passed another car and was moving back into his lane. But then his car began to skid and weave on the sluch-covered road.

The semi truck, going the other direction, was driven by Dale Mahon, 32, of Badger, Iowa. Mahon went onto the shoulder of the road, to avoid a crash. But then the Anderson car went out of control entirely and swerved across the road. It was hit broadside by the truck.

Anderson’s car was a total loss. Damage to the semi was estimated at $3,000.

The andersons had been driving to town to attend a 1:30 p.m. funeral.

Obituaries for the Andersons appear on page 5.

2345. “Slagten Christiansen--med 4 generationer at efterkommere,” PJJ-001, FLW-002 (translation into English, I believe by Hulda Christiansen), March 1, 1985, Poul Jaegerholt, Says 1847.
Slægten har to stamfamilier, som kommer hen. Fra Haldagermagle i Krummerup sogn mellem Slagelse og Næstved og fra Humble sogn på Langeland. Humble-familien flyttede ca. 1850 også til Haldagermagle, og samtlige medlemmer af de næste to generationer i begge familier er født i Haldagermagle, med en enkelt undtagelse: Humble-familiens første barn, Bodil Kirstine, blev født i Humble kort før flytningen.

Desværre har kirkebogen for Krummerup sogn fra den pågældende periode været udsat for voldsom overlast i form af vandskade, måske brand eller gnaven af mus. I hvert fald mangler væsentlige dele af hver side, og desværre oftest den margin, der indeholdt datoer og årstal. Heldigvis findes på Rigsarkivet, foruden kopiér af kirkebøgerne, også kopier af folketællingslisterne helt tilbage til år 1700 og i mange tilfælde endnu før, og heri kan man finde væsentlige, dog ikke altid ensartede, enkeltheder om personers alder (i hele år), fødested, trosretning, bestilling og i sjældnere tilfælde fødselsdato.

Disse enkeltheder er anvendt ved udarbejdelsen af denne redegørelse og af den efterfølgende oversigt, som viser, at der i Danmark i dag (1985) lever eller har levet 4 generationer med navnet Christiansen. Stavemåden Chr./Kr. Veksler, idet 1., 3. Og 4. Generation væsentligst viser stavemåden Christiansen, mens 2. Generation iflg. Folketællingslisterne udelukkende er blevet navngivet Kristiansen. Men ikke engang sådanne listeførere kan man stole 100% på.

Slægtsnavnet kan føres tilbage til en boelsmand, Christian Hansen, som i midten af det 19. århundrede drev en lille gård i Haldagermagle sammen med sin 22 år yngre hustru, Mette Kirstine Jørgensen, nogle steder iflg. Gammel skik endnu kaldt Jørgensdatter, født i Kirkerup, nabosognet mod nord. De var født i henh. 1789 og 1811 og fik et enkelt barn, sønnen Jens Christensen, født i 1847. Skikken med at lade et barn få sin fars fornavn som efternavn med tilføjelsen –sen var på vej ud, og Jens var den sidste i familien, der oplevede det.

Folketællingslisten af 1860 nævner den nu 71-årige Christian Hansen som aktiv ”landbruger” sammen den 49-årige ”husmoder” Mette Kirstine Jørgensen (kvinder benævntes ofte ved deres fars navn også efter giftermål) sammen med den hjemmeboende 14-årige søn, Jens. Christian Hansens dødsdato har desværre ikke ladet sig finde, men den må have dværet omkring 1875. Af folketællingslisten 1880 fremgår det, at Mette er enke, og at hendes søn Jens bor hos hende som bestyrer af gården sammen med sin nylig tilgiftede kone, Bodil Kirstine Madsen.

Folketællingslisten af 1880 nævner som gårdens beboere:

1. Mette Kirstine Jørgensdatter, 68, enke, luth., f. i Kirkerup, lever af sin jord
2. Jens Kristiansen, 33, gift, luth., f. i Krummerup sogn, bestyrer for sin moder
3. Bodil Kirstine Madsen, 30, gift, baptist f. i Humble, hans kone
4. Ole Mikal Kristiansen, 5, ugift, luth., f. i Krummerup, søn
5. Karoline Kristiansen, 3, ugift, luth., f. i Krummerup, datter

Den anden stamfamilie var også et gårdejerpar, jordbruger og forstmand Mads Andersen og hans hustru, Karoline Klausen, fra Humble på Langeland. De var født henh. 1823 i Trøggelev og 1825 i Humble, og må være flyttet til Haldagermagle omkring 1850, idet deres ældste barn, Bodil Kirstine, er født i Humble 14.5.1849, og barn nr. 2, Anders, i Haldagermagle i 1851. Deres øvrige 7 børn, hvoraf et par pigetvillinger, var også født i Haldagermagle. Der har været formodninger om, at familien skulle være flyttet fra Langeland til Fulby nord for Sorø. Der er dog intet holdepunkt for denne teori i papirerne.

Der har været tale om et trosskifte i familien. Det er startet med, at Bodil Kirstine mellem 1877 og 1880 er blevet grebet af den nye tro, baptismen, som først med grundloven af 1849 blev lovliggjort i Danmark. Tidspunktet vises på omstående oversigt, hvor hendes og Jens’s to første børn, Ole og Karoline, anføres som døbte og lutheranere, mens resten af børnene, fra og med Hans Peter Kristiansen, anføres som udøbte og baptister. Den første offentlige tilkendegivelse af Bodil Kirstines trosskifte er folketællingsliste af 1880, hvor hun angives som baptist. Jens står stadig som lutheraner. På listen fra 1890 nævnes nu også Jens som baptist, mens børnene født efter 1880 står som udøbte. Folketællingslisten af 1890 siger:

1. Jens Christiansen, 43, gift, bapt., f. i Krummerup sogn, jordbr.
2. Bodil Kirstine Madsen, 40, gift, bapt., f. i Humble, husmoder
3. Hans Peter Kristiansen, 6, ugift, udøbt, f. i Krummerup, søn
4. Martin Kristiansen, 5, ugift, udøbt, f. i Krummerup, sønner tvill.
5. Kristen Kristiansen, 5, ugift, udøbt, f. i Krummerup, sønner tvill.
6. Frederik Kristiansen, 2, ugift, udøbt, f. i Krummerup, søn
7. Mette Kristiansen, 1, ugift, udøbt, f. i Krummerup 21.5.1889, (børn under 1 år blev i reglen sat til l års alder på listen, præsten har for en ordens skyld tilføjet fødselsdatoen).

De to ældste børn, Ole og Karoline, er ikke nævnt. De er allerede kommet ”ud at tjene” som 15- og 13-årig. Tidligt. Men dog ikke så tidligt som Mette, der på fkt.-listen af 1901 står anført som tyende hos familien Søren Petersen i Haldagerlille.
