ABRAHAMSON and ANDERSON

My Mother was the daughter of Victor ABRAHAMSON, who was the nephew (I think) of Otto ABRAHAMSON. I am sure I have numerous relatives in that area and would like to know more about them, but have lost contact since the older generation died. I would also like to learn something of Charles J. ANDERSON, Victor's wife's brother. Victor and wife Ida ANDERSON were married at Charles's home.

CARLSON

I am researching the family of Andrew P. and Anna R.(ANDERSON) CARLSON. Andrew and Anna were married in Sweden in abt 1850. Abt 1851 they immigrated to USA to Princeton, IL. In 1852 their first child John Andrew was born. By 1854 this family was in or near Burlington, Des Moines Co., Iowa. The rest of their children were born here Henry Alexander, David W., Alma, Sophie, and Amy. By 1880 this family all moved to Fillmore County, Nebraska - near Shickely except John Andrew. John stayed in Burlington. By 1885 John moved to Fillmore County and Andrew and Anna and their family had moved to Kearney Co., Mirage Township, Axtell, Nebraska. Sometime between 1885 and 1900 Andrew P CARLSON died. Anna and her son David and his wife Emma (FREEBERG) family moved to Phoenix, Arizona and Henry Alexander and his 2nd wife Hilda (OLSON) CARLSON moved to Boulder, Colorado and then on to Venice, California. The 3 daughters Alma, Sophie and amy I have no information on except that they all had died by 1918. Anna died April 7, 1918 in Phoenix or Buckeye Arizona.
