I am not sure if there is a relation, but I am trying to find family that is also based in Rolfstorp. I have limited information but my last name was Johnson (Johansson). My father was named Roy Everett and he had a brother named Ray ?. Their Father was Arvid Johansson. Arvid had I think 2-3 other siblings, one named Anna. There was a farm that was owned by the family in Rolfstorp. Arvids father apparently deserted the family and came to the USA maybe near Indiana. Arvid came to find him but never did. Arvid stayed in Illinois where he raised a family. Arvids Mother was named Clara Alfredson(dotter??) I know that None of Arvids siblings were ever married but a brother had an illegitimate daughter that would be in her early 40's now. My father saw this daughter in the early 60's when he visited the farm. He was in the army at the time and remembered seeing the baby girl. I am guessing that Arvids father has another family in the USA and that this baby may have family also. My father Roy and my uncle have both passed and There is basically almost no family. I am searching for any information and thought there might be a connection.
