Jonas Erik Pettersson dob 4/12/1833 was going to migrate to Australia but he turned back before boarding the ship.
This entry is available, but I cannot find any record of his leaving Sweden 24/8/1868 I presume he sailed with Maja Kajsa Olsdottor dob 11/3/1827 whom he married when she was a widow. Nor can I find record of their marriage in Vasby Varmland( possibly Bjurtjarn).
They seem to have disapperaed in the USA , possibly changed their.names to something easier. From hearsay they had at least one child, but do not know if it was Maja's by her first marriage or was born to them.
Jonas died in USA in 1907.
His brother Jakob Pettersson dob 13/12/1843 is said to have died in Australia( maybe NSW)on 13/9/1913, but again I can find no records. He had brothers living in Victoria at different times, but no one has recorded anything about him.
Their parents were Petter Olsson( dob 1801) and Sara Maria Johnsdotter.( dob 1803).
