Nils Conrad "Connie"Johansson Frisk,

My great grandfather was Nils Conrad "Connie" Johansson Frisk. He was born Nov 11, 1890 in Sondrom, Halland, Sweden. His parents were Johan Anders Nilsson and Hannah Mathilda Svensdotter. Johan died when Connie was pretty young. Eventually Mathilda left her children with family and went to America to work, and began saving to bring the children over. She eventually married the man she worked for, John Frisk (aka Johan Johansson), and the children began using the last name of Frisk, mostly because of the derogatory way people looked upon the Swedes who came into the area. There was never anything official done to take the name of Frisk, and one of Connie's brothers later had a hard time getting a job during WWII when background checks were done.

If anyone knows of this family, particularly of Johan Anders Nilsson's, I'd like to know of it.
