Jonas Abraham Söderlund recap from Sweden 1871
Posted by: Deb (ID *****8213) Date: August 06, 2004 at 03:47:50
  of 81

I wanted to pass on the info I have received so far, on Jonas A. the hope of connecting some of it to my Jonas Abraham Soderlund, brother of my gggrandfather:

I discovered the following information from Swedish records from Forsa parish.:
Jonas Abraham Söderlund emigrated 1872 to US.

Info from the 1900 Kansas census:
John A. Soderlund born 4/1846 in Sweden, married 24 years, entered US in 1871.
Carin wife, born 8/1846, entered US in 1870.
Five children listed.

There is a Jonas Söderlund listed on the Swedish emmigrant CD..information I received from a volunteer on Sweden rootsweb list.
Jonas Söderlund
Age: 26
Parish: Häsejö
Lan: Y
Place of departure: Göteborg
Date of Departure: 1871 08 18
Destination: Binghampton
Contratc #: 5:559:2954
The volunteer could not locate any possible info on a wife Karin or children. This was the only Jonas Söderlund listed.
Other volunteers found Johan Söderlunds.

From the Swedish emmigrant CD: Another J. A. Söderlund:

J A Söderlund
Age: 30
Port: GÖteborg
Date: 1872 05 31
Destination: St. Paul
Fellows: JA (did he have anyone with him? JA = yes)
Source: 6:352:351

He was traveling with his wife and son:
Söderlund Carin 30 Forsa 1872 St. Paul
Söderlund Nils 8 Forsa 1872 St. Paul
Thought this info may be useful to someone...
