Nils Anderson embarked on the ship Örnen, the Eagle, 2 February 1654, but Dr Peter Craig, noted genealogist from the Swedish Society, believed he likely died on board, as his unnamed widow signed the oath of allegiance to Risingh. See reference below. Dr. Craig believed that his name was Andersson, and that his sons Michael and Peter later took the name Laicans, spelled many different ways.
"From the burial records of two surviving daughters, we learn that he came from Nya Kopparberget in Ljusnarsberg parish, Örebro län, Sweden."
Craig wrote there were four children who immigrated. Not sure about Rachel, Esther, Sarah, Susannah currently attached; were these births recorded for children who died in Sweden?
Middle name of Mattson has been suggested, but this is unsourced and middle names were not used at the time.
A merged profile had given birthplace as "Lyckan" but this manager and other collaborators believe that to be incorrect, thus removed. Noted here for the record.
Note from Andersson-4409; Lyckan(s) might be a small location that was the birthplace, it seems likely since the names Lican, Laicans is similar in sound to the Swedish word.
