Edla Johanson an emigrant from sweden apparently was married to a man named
There were two children (to my knowledge) Greta and Sverda born in 1900
to 1905. They are 2 to 3 years apart in age. They may have been residents
of Alta Iowa buena vista county around 1930 and probably Chicago around
1910, but I don't know for sure. Edla's parents lived in Kumla, Orebro
lan, Sweden. There names were Johan Persson and Hedda Ersdotter. Edla's
sister was Anna Matilda Johanson Linden and she was my grandmother. Hope
some of this rings a bell to someone. Thanks.
