Research History

Identification of primary person (Jöns Johnsson):  Proven 2003-09-25
Found and listed the emigrant family as above
Query to SWEDEN list:
I am looking for the a common surname of Johnson/Johnsson but have some 
Matilda (b. 1843 - abt. 39 years) and ? Johnson emigrated in 1882 with 
their children:
Betsy (b. 29 June 1868 - abt. 14 years)
Swan (b. October 1873 - abt. 9 years)
Olaf (b. May 1876 - abt. 6 years)
They ended up living in Henning Township, Otter Tail County, MN in 
the1900 census (the husband had died by this census so don't have that yet)
As suggested in an earlier lookup for me, I have checked with the Danish 
and Norwegian databases already.
