My great-grandfather was Peter Sweberg who immigrated in 1888 with his brother John and apparently worked in lumber camps in Minnesota and Wisconsin before settling in Wisconsin. Family folklore claims his surname was originally Johnson but was changed because there were too many Johnsons where he was working.I have some additional information which I would be happy to share. Do you know what part of Sweden Olaf was from?
