My great grandfather, Olaf Adolf Sjostrom, was born in Sweden in about 1851. He married Sofia Elisabeth Hartman (who I heard was an actress and had a brother named Viktor Hartman). They had five children:
August Olaf (born April 30, 1871 in Sweden)
Marie (born in 1875 in Holmedal, Vaarmland, Sweden;
married to Ernst Pihlblad in Lindsborg, KS)
Victor(Viktor)David (born: September 21, 1879 in
Sibodal, Vaarmland, Sweden. He was an actor and film
director who returned to Sweden where he died in
Olaf had been in the lumber business. The family immigrated to Brooklyn, New York in 1880. When their mother, Sofia Elisabeth, died in 1887, the children lost contact with their father. We had heard that Olaf remarried and had more children and that he or his descendents from the second wife were at one time in the Kansas or Missouri area.
