Johannes Hägglund is in my tree, I have his wife as Anna which I found on Swedish Census info around Svanskog, Varmland läns area.
Daughter Katherina (b. 26 Nov 1852 d. 26 Aug 1892) married (m. 25 Mar 1872) Nels Nelson (b. 25 Mar 1848 d. 07 Mar 1924) in Svanskog, Varmland, Sweden. They had children Gustaf (b. 26 Dec 1872), Anna (b. 25 May 1875) in Svanskog, then emigrated Jun 1876 to Collinwood Twp, MN and settled around Dassel. Then in Minnesota they had Hulda Christina (b. 23 Apr 1877), Minnie (b. 18 Nov 1878 d. 20 Nov 1878) Minnie (b. 13 Jun 1880), Beda (b. 28 Jul 1882 d. 01 Jul 1955), Adolf (b. 25 Jun 1884), Alma (b. 03 Apr 1886), Oscar (b. 07 Dec 1887), Ester Hedvig (b. 15 Apr 1890), Albin (b. 08 Aug 1892 d. 02 Jan 1893).
It seems a sad family story. Katherina died at age 40 a few weeks after giving birth to Albin, who then died only a few months later. I have Nels Nelsons Obit, which listed only 3 children surviving him at his death.
Now, to describe my relationship to them...
Beda Nelson was married to Johan Alfred Andersson (b. 05 Jun 1877 Okome d. 27 Apr 1957 Buffalo, MN) had daughter Selma Kathryn Olivia (b. 02 Aug 1902 d. 12 Dec 1990), and son Albert Wilholm Frithiof (b. 17 Oct 1904 d. 1995). Selma married Arvid Frithiof Dahlgren (b. 22 Aug 1896 Palmyra d. 07 Jan 1990 Dassel). Arvid and Selma are my mother Lynette Kathryn Dahlgrens parents.
I would suspect BB Hägglund, of Litchfield, MN and Alfred Hägglund are brothers of Katherina or otherwise related.
