Amanda Carolina Johnson/Johansson - Sweden
Posted by: Wez (ID *****8022) Date: June 05, 2005 at 11:50:55

Amanda Carolina Johnson (Johansson) was born in Sunne, Varmland, Sweden on 13 December 1869. She married John Edward Johnson of Yungby, Forsamling, Kalmar Lan in 1886 in Stockholm, Sweden, they emmigrated to Stromsberg, Nebraska, U.S. in 1892 and had eight children. The couple were sponsored for immigration by Amanda's cousin in Stromsberg, Christine Swanson (maiden name unknown, b. 1873, d. 1945) married to Alex Swanson.

Amanda Johnson's parents were Olaf Johansson, born about 1835 in Sunne, Varmland and Katherine (last name unknown) born about 1839 in Sunne, Varmland. As a child Amanda would accompany her father while he played his fiddle/violin. Amanda made a trip back to Sweden sometime after 1900 (probably 1911) to visit, as her husband had promised her a trip back to Sweden when she was 50.

Any information about Amanda Johansson/Johnson's family in Sweden would be greatly appreciated. Thanks - Wez
