I am looking for information on my GGrandfather's trip to America. He came
in 1864 without immediate family with him. I would like to know the name of
the ship and who he came with. He was from Malilla Parish in Aspeland
Judicial District, Kalmar, Sweden. Charles Johan Bernard Carlson was born
April 21, 1841 to Carl Magnus Andersson and Eva Stina Danielson. His
siblings: Stina Cajsa Carlson dob Dec.1,1821, Anna Lovisa Carlson dob Feb.
20, 1825, Anders Gustaf Carlson dob July 4, 1832, Daniel Magnus Carlson dob
Jan. 25, 1835 and Stina Cajsa Carlson dob
Sept. 28, 1839.
Charles left to visit America with intentions of going back. He first
spent time somewhere in Indiana and then came to Bishop Hill Illinois where
he met and married Margaret Wahlstrom. There children were my Ggrandfather
Victor Carl Carlson, Fred Bernard Carlson, Amanda Jane Carlson and Nannie M.
Carlson. They later moved to Holdrege, Nebraska.
I would love to make some connections, thank you for reading this.
