For Stephen Carlile:
I found a John Gusterferson, age 29, married M. Clara McOlson, age
20, on 3 Apr 1872.
Found several Ragans; Catherine, Elizabeth, Emma, John G and Sarah
A. and a Cora B and a Fred Herndon but not the names you mentioned.
Looked also in Nov. 84 but didn't see any names that could just be
I looked in Lucas County Early Marriages, printed by Lucas CO
I found a listing of a John Gustafson (37) in English, Lucas, Iowa, 1880 Federal Census Page 436B with wife Clara M. Gustafson (28). The children listed were all born in Iowa, beginning with
Hattie A., 7
Ida F., 5
George H., 3
Emma C., 1
and Emmely C. Carlson, 23 (John's niece)
I believe this John Gustafson is Johan Alfred Gustafsson, born 14 Dec 1844 in Skarpeträde, Lidhults ägor, Lönneberga Parish, Kalmar, Småland, Sweden. He emigrated from Sweden in 1868.
John's father, Gustaf Månsson (Gutav Munson) emigrated in 1872.
If anyone has any information on this Gustafson family, please contact me.
