Dear Bo, Judy and other Listers!
Thanks a million for your great messages with wonderful information about the Kockum
family! I am amazed!
It has to be Hedda Augusta Lydia who "hides" behind Augusta Kockum in Chicago,
I do have a few additional questions though:
* What should I write as Johan Henrik Bernt Kockum's OCCUPATION?
* Can Johan Henrik Bernt Kockum's parentrs' names be found?
* How about an exact birth place (at Gotland) and the names of Maria Therese
Thanks again for your great assistance!
Very sincerely yours,
Lars E. Oyane

The birth database at http://www.ddss.nu/
has one Hedda Augusta Lydia
born 1870-06-09 in Glumslöv parish, parents Johan Henrik Berndt Kockum
and Maria Therese Wallgren, address: "N-o 3 N. Glf", page 94 in HLF.
Perhaps your Augusta Kockum?
The family is found at N. Glumslöv number 3 Örenäs, in GID 1229.3.37800,
[Malmöhus] Glumslöv, AI.15, Household examination, 1866-1871, page 94,
- Johan Henrik B. Kockum, born 1830-04-20 Västra Skrävlinge.
- wife Maria Theresia Wallgren, born 1835-04-06 Gotland.
- 6 children born 1858 - 1870 in Glumslöv.
The siblings were:
- Per Johan Gabriel, born 1858-07-10, died 1876-10-26.
- Peter Henrik Ludvig, born 1861-06-17.
- Anna Hilma Theresia, born 1861-06-17.
- Gunilda Selma Vilhelmina, born 1863-12-04.
- Carl Axel Hjalmar, born 1869-02-10.
- Hedda Augusta Lydia, born 1870-06-09.
All born in Glumslöv, and none found in Sw. Census 1890, exept this one
with a probable spelling error:
Koskum, Carl Axel Hjalmar
f. 1869 i Glumslöv (Malmöhus län, Skåne)
Ogift man, ensam i familjen [unmarried man, alone]
Mörsil (Jämtlands län, Jämtland)
