Is there anyone out there that can do courthouse research in Chariton for me.
If so please email me at fmn1949(a)aol.com
I need several marriage records from there on my LANE family.
Does anyone have access to the Lucas County, Iowa Federal census for 1900 that could look up my ancestor, probably listed as Carolina Ferm (Farm/Faran), as I don't think she went back to her Anderson or Månsdotter name. I am trying to find out the date she arrived in the U.S. I am told that the 1900 census has that info on it. Since she died in 1907, that census will not work. In 1900 Carolina Ferm would be 76 or 77 years of age, born in Sweden. Thank you very much.
I am a new subscriber to this list. I am looking for information on my Anderson family. My family apparently arrived in the U.S. from Sweden in 1851, from the Småland Province, Kalmar län (county), south of the city of Vimmerby. According to the 1860 Federal Census, Peter Anderson, married to Caroline with children, John (15), Swan (11) (both born in Sweden), Sarah J. (5) (born in New York), and Emily (2) (born in Iowa), resided in Chariton Township. The 1856 Iowa census does not list them, therefore, they probably arrived in Iowa after the 1856 census.
Caroline was thought to be Caroline Munson, but I believe she was actually born Carolina Månsdotter. Peter, although listed as an Anderson is believed to have been born Sven Petter Hansson. I don't know when he would have changed his name to Anderson, or even if he did. My info has not been confirmed.
Betty Cross has sent me some info on this family, and it appears that Carolina married a Lewis Ferm (our family thought his name was Axel Ferm), after Peter died (approximately 1868). I cannot find where Peter is buried but Carolina is buried in the Chariton Cemetery between two of her sons, George Lincoln Anderson and David Anderson.
Peter and Caroline are said to have had about 12-13 children, although only four were living at the time of her death in 1907. Emily Anderson married Andrew Granville, and they had at least one son named George Granville.
I would like to find out if the Swedish Lutheran Church in Chariton, or the organization which may have taken its place, still has records from the 1850's, or if anyone knows where they may be found.
I would also like to find out if there was a newspaper, either English or Swedish that was published during the same time period that may have recorded info on Swedish families, such as births, deaths, marriages, etc..
Thanks for you help.
Looking for clues to a J.C. O'CONNOR, probably b. bef 1832 and living in NY
in 1852, then moved to IOWA.
Our connection is his daughter, Elizabeth O'CONNOR, b. 8 Feb 1852, NY,
married 25 Feb 1873, Georgetown, IA to Joseph P. WALLACE, and d. 29 July
1896, Cedar Twp, Munroe Co, IA.
Elizabeth had one known sister, "Kate" (Katherine, Catherine) a teacher,
We think Elizabeth's father was J.C. O'Connor, our quest, and was in
business as a "druggist" of some kind (chemist, pill purveyor, or ?) in
Iowa, probably around Lucas, Munroe or Marion Counties, say in the 1870-1900
Any suggestions at all to help us past this brick wall would be most
