Alvin Martin ANDERBURG [sic-Albin ANDERBERG],

History of Howard County in the World War C.V. Haworth, Indianapolis: Wm B. Burford, Printer & Binder, 1920. p 19 photo plate 30

ANDERBURG [sic- ANDERBERG], Alvin [sic- Albin] Martin, son of Martin A. and Mary ANDERBURG, was born in Indianapolis, Ind., Aug. 22, 1893. His wife is Rhetta L. CLARK [sic - CLARKE] ANDERBURG.
He became a soldier Sept. 21, 1917, at Detroit, Mich. At Camp Custer, Mich., he was promoted to Corporal; then he was sent to Camp Greenleaf, Ga. At Camp Kearney, Calif., he was advanced to sergeant and attached to a federal ship building corporation as a member of Co. B, Tenth Battalion.

Additional information provided by Karen
ALBIN M. ANDERBERG married Rhetta LAURA CLARKE. (Rhetta was my grandfather's sister and lived with us at least twice during my childhood. We knew her well. My grandfather was Courtland Earl CLARKE, b. Sept. 1, 1899, Kokomo, Howard Co., IN. Everyone in the family added the final 'e' to their surname when they signed their names. Their tombstones all include the final 'e' as well.)
There is ample evidence that ALBIN and not ALVIN was his first given name. There is also ample evidence to show that your record has his last name spelled incorrectly as well; it should be ANDERBERG and not ANDERBURG.
Sources documenting his name:

  • (1) The Howard County, Indiana, Index to Birth Records listed Albin M. [Anderberg] and Retta (sic) Laura Clark (sic) as the parents of a son born in 1918 (still living). (They also were the parents of twin girls born on May 7, 1917; one died within hours and one died on the 8th. The Indiana birth records and perhaps the Indiana death records might show their parents' names as well.)
  • (2) 1900 census showing Albin Anderberg, son of Martin Anderberg of Danville, ward 6, Vermillion, IL, age 4, born in Indiana.
    1910 census showing Albin M. Anderberg, son of Martin A. Anderberg of Center Township, Howard Co., IN, age 14, born in Indiana.
    1920 census showing Albin/Alben? Anderberg, son of Martin/Morten A. Anderberg of Kokomo, Howard County, In, age 23, born in Indiana.
    1930 census showing Albin M. Anderberg, head of household in Detroit, Wayne County, MI, age 35, born in Indiana. (Second wife's name: Elsie M.; her son Albin M. Anderberg was born on Oct. 4, 1923, in Detroit, MI, and died on Apr. 8, 2006, in Cumberland Co., TN, as per obit.)
  • (3) Social Security Death Index stating Albin Anderberg was born on August 23, 1895 (one day and two years off from the data in your bio), and died in September 1972. His last residence was in Royal Oak, Oakland Co., Michigan.
  • (4) Michigan's death records show he died on Sept. 21, 1972, in Royal Oak, Oakland Co., MI.
  • (5) His World War I Civilian Draft Registration Card listed him as Albin Anderberg of Detroit, MI, born on Aug. 23, 1895, in Indianapolis, Indiana. FYI: He was tall, had a medium build, blue eyes and brown hair.
