Anders was born in 1724, most likely in Eds parish, Värmlands county.
In 1749 he lived on the farm Stora Häggvik in Eds parish. This farm could have been owned by his father.
The same year, on October 22 1749, he married the maid Catharina Jansdotter from one of the farms in Kållerud in the same parish. After the wedding Catharina moved to Anders in Stora Häggvik.
Anders owned the farm in Stora Häggvik until 1794. After that year the farm was taken over by his oldest son Sven. The year before, in August, his wife died and he became a widdower.
Anders lived in Stora Häggvik for the rest of his life and died on October 28 1810. By that time he was 86 years old and he died from "age-weakness". He was buried on November 4.
