The ship Cambria sailed from Karlshamm, Sweden on June 22, 1854 with 683 passengers. The Cambria originated in Stockholm and may have made several other stops along the way, as well as an intermediate stop in England. After a voyage of 43 days, it arrived in New York on September 13. Nils Daniel Andersson's party included his wife, Martha, and all of their children, son-in-law Sven Nilsson, grandaughter Martha, and Elias Petersson. Their baggage consisted of 9 trunks and 6 bags. After arriving in New York they went by train to Chicago and Rock Island, Illinois, where they boarded a Mississippi riverboat for Stillwater Minnesota. At Stillwater they transferred to a smaller riverboat and went on to Taylors Falls, arriving on October 6. From there they went by ox cart to Chisago Lake, arriving on October 27, 1854.

Nils Daniel settled with his family on section 21 by the lake. His purchase of 27 acres there was recorded in 1856. In 1857 they bought 329 acres in Martha's name in section 29.
