Hello!  I am seeking to connect with users who may know ancestor names for:

 

Mateas Matsen

born 11 March 1854, Lekvattnet, Sweden

died 05 November 1887

 

Karin Persdotter

born 19 March 1850 Lekvattnet, Torsby, Sweden

died date unknown, likely 1910

 

Mateas and Karin are parents of:

1) Menz Mattias Mattsson

born 29 November 1875 Brandvald, Norway

died date unknown

Emigrated to USA around 1900 and worked in Agate, Bisbee, North Dakota around 1902-1905

 

2) Wilhelmina Mattson

born 8 November 1879 Vitsand, Varmland, Sweden

died 4 December 1968 Minnesota, USA

Emigrated to USA 1904

married Ole Johannesen Lystadberget (born Kongsvinger) and lived in Agate, Bisbee, North Dakota

I am a direct descendant of Wilhelmina

 

I do not have much information about the Mattson ancestors in Sweden and Norway and am seeking any names.  If you reply, I will use a translation tool to interpret. Thank you in advance! Takk skal du ha.

Thank you very  much! This is all very interesting - many more emigrants than I knew about. Now I can look on this side to check for those connections and see what happenned to Beda.

 

As a general question, do you know who would have issued the warning to Matthias (father) about the bad upbringing and not going to school? Would that be town authorities or school authorities?  I think it is interesting because it comes a few months after his wife died.

I think it probably was the priest or the school. 


They didn't go to communion either.
