I am helping two friends link their Sundberg ancestors as brothers. The Swedish origin is
unknown for both. Birth and death dates below are from monuments and markers.
Frederick Gabriel Sundberg (husband of Caroline _______, b. 22 Jun 1848 in Norway)
b. 09 Jan 1848 in Sweden.
d. 01 Jan 1891 in Brainerd, Minnesota.
Arrived in New York on 10 Aug 1871 aboard the Assyria (no wife or children listed).
Married Caroline ______ around 1873 presumably in the U.S.
All children b. Minnesota.
Oscar Sundberg (husband of Caroline _______, b. 06 Aug 1857 in Sweden)
b. 10 Dec 1860 in Sweden.
d. 05 Oct 1897 in Brainerd, Minnesota.
Arrival date unknown, but in June 1895 MN state census was resident of State for 7 years.
Son Carl Oscar (or Oscar Carl) in 1900 census b. Apr 1884 in Sweden, immigrated 1888.
Son Robert in 1900 census b. Jun 1888 in Minnesota.
So Oscar apparently emigrated Jan-Jun 1888.
Oscar's funeral was held in the home of Frederick's widow and their family
cemetery lots are adjacent, so that's why I think they are brothers.
Looking for birthplaces and parents names.
Thanks a bunch!
