Herman and Carl
Fri Feb 14, 2014 04:40

Very kind Swedish genealogists have helped me uncover that Herman is Augusta's younger brother and her husband Carl Hjalmar Carlsson returned after about 18 months to marry Augusta in Dec. of 1891. My big mystery is what happened to Herman Andersson after he came to the USA with Augusta and her two daughters. I cannot find him with any assurance of my accuracy. Two different records in the USA show that he was married with a family and another Herman appears to have remained single and seemed to have a hapless life and died sadly in the poorhouse. The problem with both of these men is that my grandmother inherited some money from "Uncle Herman" and the letter about this was from an attorney in Sweden. So, I wonder if Herman went back to Sweden. The first man in the USA would have left his money to his children and the second obviously had none. A brickwall mystery to be uncovered someday!
