Your Name*: Emily 
Your Email Address*:
Surname*: Lofbakka OR Lofback
Finland Location*: Kaustinen, Central Ostrobothnia
Birth Date: 
Death Date: 
Comment about Family*: I am seeking more information on the family 
of my great-grandfather, whose American name was Charles Lofback. 
He was apparently christened Kalle Lofbakka in 1876 in Kaustinen, 
as this is the name he gave upon his marriage to Emilia Salonen. 
The script on the record of marriage is not entirely legible, 
but it appears his parents' names were Jakob Lofbakka and Fiya(?) 
Granholm. Kalle/Charles came over to the United States in about 
1897, settling in Mass City, Michigan, but I can find no record 
of his parents doing the same, so they likely remained in Finland. 
Any assistance in discovering more about these Lofbakkas 
would be deeply appreciated.

Finland Location*: Dagsmark
Birth Date   : unknown

Comment about Family*: My Greatgrandfather immigrated to Massachusetts USA 
about 1888.  His name is recorded as F. William Carlson, of Finland Russ.  
With a bit of help from others we may have determined he was from the 
Dagsmark area. The odd thing is that on his marriage registration his 
father's name is listed as Carl Erik Lillkull.  I am trying to research 
and develope our family tree.

Landquist, Fredrick (Landqvist) Vaasa

b. 1832

The family story is that he stowed away on a ship when he was about 12 years old. Eventually he became a sea captain. He may not have come to the US immediately. The earliest information we have of him in the USA is that he was married in Indiana in about 1871 to Mathilda Magnuson (Nilsdotter) [died on 29 Aug 1936 in Holdrege, Nebraska. She was born in Småland, F, SE. Parents: Nils Yohan Swan Magnuson and Maria Skoog.] I assume Fredrick Landqvist was a Swedish Finn. Once in the U.S. he changed his last name to Brown. [2007]
