I am trying to help a friend with her research.
Four children were born to Lars Hedlund and Greta Ornberg, in Hudiksvall,
Reinhold Hedlund (1827 1878)
Lars Peter Hedlund (1829 1881)
Johan Gustav Hedlund (1832 _ ?)
Katrina Margareta Hedlund (1835 1836)
Two of the children of Reinhold married into the Strom and Skytte families
and they have been documented.
Lars Peter Hedlund came to Western Australia, married Ellen Adams and
fathered 10 children. He was killed by Aborigines in 1881.
Nothing is known of John Gustav Hedlund. Did he marry? Did he remain in
Sweden or migrate to another country? We would welcome any information on
Johan Gustav Hedlund (Born 1 Sept 1832). We would also welcome contact with
any descendants of these Hedlund families and hope to locate photos that may
be held by the family, especially of Reinhold.
Thank you in advance.
