Surnames: Lundberg Johnson
Okay, I’ll put this one out as I’m pretty stumped finding the history. Not an exact match to what you have, but I can’t trace back the Lundbergs to anywhere before Carl/Charles/Karl J. Lundberg (Johnson?). I was hoping to have an obituary for him that would say something about surviving family. Oh - and there is another Charles/Carl J Lundberg, married to a Mathilda in the Muskegon, MI area with very similar birth dates from very close to the same time period with many family name parallels that seems to be unrelated but makes travel records quite confusing!

This is what I have. Some of it contradicts stories I’ve heard from some family, but is almost all coming from census data and marriage/birth/death records. I found from census to census, birth years sometimes shift a slight amount, and first/middle names are often used interchangeably). Anything anyone can add helps shed light on things. I’m mostly trying to figure out siblings and parents for Carl.

Carl was born around Feb 1858 in Sweden. Came to the US by way of Canada (family story), settling in Iron River, Michigan in the 1881-1883 timeframe (immigration date in later census data). Handily enough, this is right AFTER the 1880 census that may have given me some useful information. :\

First wife was likely named Mary Johnson (married name?), and they had a son, John C Lundberg (SSN 378-30-4168, b Apr 1884, Iron Mountain, MI. d Jun 1966, Iron Mountain, MI). John Married Clara Holtein (b 4 Apr 1886 in Florence WI). The only mention I have of Mary Johnson is as Mother of the groom on John’s wedding certificate. Haven't found an obit for John yet that might name his mother.

Sometime after arriving he (Charles) supposedly changed his name from Karl Johnson (or similar) and moved to Iron Mountain, MI. The first real mention I have of him on paper is on his marriage registry to Mathilda “Tilda” Magnason, (b 1861 in Sweden) in Iron Mountain dated 23 Dec 1886. By that time he was already Charles/Chas/Carl J Lundberg.

Their children I have listed are
Alma ( 4 Dec 1887 – 15-Apr 1969)
Arthur (21 Sep 1889 - ?)
Salem (3 May 1891 - Dec 1962)
Ester Emelia (31 Mar 1893 – 29 Jun 1983)
Adolf Ferdinand (10 May 1895 - ?)
Ruth Elizabeth (26 Mar 1897 – 23 Dec 1985)
Astrid (22 Apr 1899 – 10 Mar 1975)
Mable (16 Mar 1901 – 9 Jul 1991)
George H (15 Sep 1904 – 9 Mar 1993)
Dorice Gertrude (26 May 1906 – 5 Jun 1908)

Anyone have anything more on Carl? I've seen some other bits and pieces of things that could be related, but nothing that sticks without some more information to glue it all together. Thanks!
