Tippoldefar Aron Josefsson (f.20/10/1851)

Recommended Posts

Hei,

Can anyone help me trace  information on my great great grandfather Aron Josefsson, born 20 OCT 1851, Ljungsbacka, Sandviken Stora, Färgelanda, Älvsborg. In 1878 he is working as a "sagarbruk" in Fredrikstad, Norway. On 2 September 1880, his wife Oline Henriksdatter died at Lahellemoen, Glemmen, Ostfold.

I believe he may have emigrated to USA at the end of the 1890s and may have married Fannie Boyd Wilson, 10th January 1902, in Chicago, Illinois. I cannot find further evidence to verify this. I really want to find out where and when he died. I hope somebody may be able to help. Thanks.

Trådstarter sin Aron Josefson skulle være f 20 okt 1851.

Da er vel han som er gravlagt i McHenry Illinois en annen Aron Josefson.

Hei ! My Norwegian is not good enough to fully understand some of these old documents. Is this one showing Aron's burial as well as his wife Oline? Or is it just her burial which I already had. Thanks for you help!

Yes that's what I thought, thanks. Still trying to find where and when he died, very frustrating!

Aron Josefsson was born October 20 1851 in Färgelanda, Älvsborgs, Sweden (see entry #11).

 

According to Familysearch his parents were Joseph Johanneson and Elin Olsdotter.

 

He may also have been known as Aron Johannesson/Johannesen because of his fathers surname.

 

This Aron Johanneson was born in Elfsborgs län in Sweden and emigrated from Kristiania (Oslo), Norway, to America in 1887.

His given age at the time of emigration was 37 years, that is born about 1850.

It would be very helpfull if you could give us the names of his children.  Since you know he is your great great grandfather you obviously know the name of his child that is your great grandfather/-mother. 

Also; have you found this great grandfather/-mother in any US censuses?  Do you know his/her date and place of birth?

Hi Lene, thanks for your help. His only child (my great grandfather)  was Johan Oliver  born 31 August 1880, Glemminge, Fredrikstad. and died 1957 in Oslo when his name was Johan Oliver Haagensen (he was adopted as a baby). 

The possible  great grandfather I have found in the US only has dates of birth as estimates. He married Fannie Boyd Wilson on 10 January 1902, Chicago, Illinois. I have tried to get a marriage certificate to see if it has the parents names on it as that would confirm I have the right Aron but have not managed this due to some strange goings on in the vital records office in Cook county. I sent the form and money and they won't confirm whether the certificate has been posted or not- quite bizarre.

That's about all I have.

I have found him!!

With help from a very distant relative in Sweden, she has found out the following information:

 

 Aron Josefsen died in 1883.

Glemmen Kirkeboker, Ministerialbok 12, 1878-1973, gr (dead and buried) page 37.

Aron Josefsen, enkemand (widower) worker, died on 24 November 1883 and was buried on 1 December 1883. He died from Nervefeber (nerve fever).

 

Thanks you all for your kind help!
