Jacobson emigration
Sun Oct 23, 2011 08:51
66.82.9.100 (XFF: 66.82.86.157)

If you are still doing searches on emigration I would like info on the following family. We have no idea where in Sweden they came from only this from the US census.

F.J. Jacobson, b. Jan 1855 (family history says first and middle names are Frans Joseph) emigrated to Rockford, IL USA 1888
wife Amanda. b. Feb 1862 emigrated to US, Rockford IL 1891 w/following children
daughter Ellen, b. Feb 1882
son John A. b. June 1884
son Torsten A.J. b. 15 Feb 1886
daughter Mary, b. Feb 1888

The US Census gives us most of this but we also have a draft registration on Torsten (aka Thurston) which gives the birth date shown.

If you can give me the parish I can take it from there.
