JOHANSDOTTER posted by
Sigvard Brunnstedt on Sunday, May 20,
Please, give me a tip! Many of members of my ancestry migrated from Småland
in Sweden to the United States of America. I now two names: The first one
of them was Josefina Maria
Johansdotter. Born 10th of Aug 1858 in Brunsmåla in the
parish of Ålem. She left for North Branch, Minnesota the 21st of Aug
1884. The second one of them was Almida Elisabeth
Brunnstedt who was
born 17th of April 1871 in Brunsmåla in the same parish of Ålem.
She left for North America on the 18th of May 1892. Both of them was my
grandmother's sisters. My family name was spelled either
Brunstedt during the
18th and 19th century. If you know that your family came from Sweden there
is a possibility that we share ancestry. I've documented my ancestry and
made it available on the Internet to find relatives in US. If you are interested,
have look on my website, with address below:
Best regards Sigvard Brunnstedt

JOHNSON, posted by
Jeffrey Elmquist on Friday, October 26,
I am specifically interested in details concerning the parents and siblings
of Carl A. HULT; born 21 September 1840 in Smaland, Sweden; died 4
February 1928 in Langford, SD. He emigrated around 1869 and settled in Chisago
County. He and his wife Louisa HAKANSON lived on a farm south of
Chisago City - section 30, township 33, range 20. He and his children then
moved to Langford, SD around 1887. I am also interested in details concerning
Carl HULT's wife, as well as her parents and siblings. Louisa
HAKANSON was born 19 July 1847. I am not sure if she was born in Sweden
or America. Apparently she died in Chisago County sometime around 1887. Her
parents appear to have been Johan or John HAKANSON / HOKANSON,
born 6 May 1822; and Lisa born 3 March 1822. It also appears that John and
his wife Lisa sold a piece of property south of Chisago City (section 30,
township 33, range 20) to Carl A. HULT and Louisa on 30 April 1883.
It is very likely that some of Louisa's siblings went by the surname
JOHNSON. And it is possible that one of Louisa's sisters, Christina
HAKANSON / JOHNSON married Isaac HULT / HOLT.
This Isaac HULT may have been a brother to the Carl A. HULT
mentioned above. However, I have not been able to verify this. I would greatly
appreciate any information on these families. Thank you.

Hi! I was wondering if you knew if any survey has been done of Kahbakong
Cemetery, Taylors Falls, Chisago County? A branch of my Blood family has
several members that were buried there and I am hoping to find others, since
the family was rather clannish. Thank you very much! Carmen Brooks Gardiner
