Message Board Post:
I'm looking for my ancestor Lars Larsson born 1803 in Hol, Vastegotland, Sweden.
He married Johanna Andersdotter Ekstrom born 1803 in Nor, Varmalnd, Sweden.
They and their daughter Lotta born 1841 in Siene, Vastegotland, Sweden emigrated in 1863.
I've found them in Census 1870 in Benson, Chippewa ct, Minnesota. They are not there in Census 1880. Maybe Johanna and Lars died in the 70's and Lotta married and got another surname.
There was also the son Sven Larsson born in 1837 in Hol, Vastergotland, Sweden. He emigrated in 1862 but I can't find him in Census 1870.
Any help to find out what happened to them will be very appreciated.
