Text source

Johan Anderson was probably a Scot living in Stockholm in the 1660s. On 26 January 1669 he buried Elisabeth Russell, "en gammal Skotsk hustru' in Maria Kyrka in Stockholm. He had previously buried a non-resident Scot in his own grave the year before. This may be the same man as Jonas Anderson "Scot" who, is listed in the Hedvig Eleonora church records as having his son Bengt baptised in the church on 13 February 1677.
