Re: Information on Johannes Jacobson pre 1885

The only information I have is that they were from Stockholm. Most likely just the place they left from. My greatgrandfathers full name, that we have, is Charles Leonard Johnson and that he came to the US abt. 1884 or 85. It was just within the last few months that I was able to find the information out on his parents. The records say that Gustaf and Anna came here abt 1885. So much of their records are marked UKN that I may be at the end with this part of my family. Family lore has them comming on a lumber ship from Sweden to Thunder Bay Alpena Michigan and that Charles continued to work on lumber ships for a while before owning a coal yard and delivery sevice. Thank you for all the information you did provide.

  • Jeff, Most of these names are extraordinarily commonplace in Sweden and thus very difficult to trace, given the information you have. Some of these names would have been shared by thousands of Swedes ... more
