Anne was born April 4, 1828 on the small place Vassenden (the Water’s End) by parents Hans Christensen and Aslau Andersdatter. By the time of emigration in 1849 she was a maid by Aslak Halvorsen Sverrige and his family, and this is also where she met her future husband  Nils Olsen Eriksrød.
Her mother Aslau died in 1833 and the probate is dated Dec 10th. In the document is says that the father, Hans Christensen, was about to get married again. Their other children were: Ole, age 8.3/4, Anders, age 3 and Ragnhild, age 8.3/4.
In 1835 (census) we still find the family at Vassenden. Hans(age 32) has now married Signe Solvesdatter, age 38, and they have one daughter, Andrea, age 1.1/2.
