I´m searching for relatives of Johan (b. 1818) and Anna(b. 1820, maiden name ANDERSDOTTER) STRANDBERG who emigrated from Ljusne, Halsingland Sweden in 1883. 3 of their 5 children went with them: Fredrik Adolf b. 1857, Herman Teodor b. 1859 and Johanna Erika b. 1862. The family originally came from Lerbäcken, Stora Tuna, Dalacarlia. 2 older sons stayed in Sweden: Carl Johan and Erik Leonard Strandberg. I have no idea of where they settled but maybe it was in Minnesota. Erik Leonard had 2 sons that in 1903 emigrated to North America: Herman Teodor b. 1881 and Selfrid Oskar b. March 27, 1886. Both where born in Aasbacka, Sandarne, Halsingland. I know for sure that Selfrid or Oscar as he called himself in America visited his older cousins and their grandchildren in 1944. A picture is taken Febraury 7, 1944 with Oscar standing in the middle of a group of men and boys. Oscar had one son Robert VERNON. His mother is either a Sadie Larson or a Sigrid Koch. One information says that Robert died in 1987 in Chichago, ILL. Oscar died in November 1967. He was buried at Mount Salem Cementery at Mathowa, MN. He had lived on 1714 N. 16th St., Superior WI. His last wifes name, who survied him, was Mattie Strandberg. I no nothing about Herman Teodors whereabouts. Oregon is mentioned but I don´t know. Any information is of great value. Thank you
