FT1880 for Athens township, Isanti Co., MN syner dette trekløveret:


NELSON, John 40 Swe Swe Swe farmer single

NELSON, Anderson Mary 68 Swe Swe Swe mother keeps house

NELSON, Jonas E 31 Swe Swe Swe brother boarder


FT1895 for Athens township, Isanti Co., MN synner desse brørne:


NELSON, Jonas 44 Swe farmer - twin

NELSON, Nels 44 Swe farmer - twin


FT1910 for Athens township, Isanti Co., MN syner denne personen:


NELSON, Jonas 60 Swe Swe Swe widowed farm laborer - emigrated 1868


Om det i alle tre tilfelli er tale om same Jonas Nelson er usikkert, men ein person med dette namnet, fødd i Sverige, gifte seg i Pine Co., MN 1884 med Hannah Glimsdale og budde i Isanti Co., MN der Hannah døydde kring 1888.


Er det utifrå desse opplysningane mogeleg å identifisera det svenske opphavet til Jonas E. Nelson?


Eg takkar so mykje på førehand for alle gode tips!


Med venleg helsing,

Isanti County is sometimes called the Dalarna of America, but its first Swedish settlers were from the province of Hälsingland. They arrived as a group in 1860 and claimed land just south of Cambridge. They had come to America a few years earlier, settling first in the Chisago Lakes area. It was not until the Civil War ended (in 1865) that immigrants from Dalarna began to comprise the greatest number of settlers. From the parish of Rättvik alone, more than 85 families settled in the country, most around Cambridge but also in the townships of Isanti, Athens and Spring Vale. Their settlement patterns have been well documented in a book by Robert Ostergren (University of Wisconsin), who terms the Rättvik/Isanti connection "a community transplanted

Castle Garden 22. juni 1868 – men høyst sannsynlig et skudd i vilden sky, for jeg vet ikke om disse har noe med hverandre å gjøre i det hele tatt. Og hvis de har emigrert sammen med foreldrene, har jeg heller ikke funnet noen passende folk. Skipsmanifestet må bestilles...







Det kan ut på selve registreringen at disse to har en id like etter hverandre (6021377 og 6021378), og det kan kanskje bety at de står rett etter hverandre på selve passasjerlista.


Men du får ta dette som en ren hypotese, Lars...
