Classification: Query
Surnames: Jefferson

I am not descended from either of them, as far as I can tell. Who I am descended from is:
Ursila Pålsdotter born 27 Aug 1836 in Östersund, Jämtlands, Sweden (that's what I have). She emigrated 14 Apr 1869 to Wisconsin.

She is the daughter of Pål Olofsson and Anika Larsdotter.
He was born 03 Jan 1808 in Änge, Offerdal, Jämtlands
He emigrated 04 Apr 1869 to Wisconsin.
She was born 19 Dec 1809 in Valne, Alsen, Jämtlands and died 24 Jul 1846 in Valne, Alsen, Jämtlands

Ursila was married to Olof Gufastsson born 21 Jun 1837 in Röde, Alsen, Jämtlands. When in America after the 1870 census they took the surname Jefferson.

They settled in La Crosse,WI for a time (per 1870 census and family knowledge), but then left for Nebraska, and eventually ended in Colorado. Their eldest daughter Ingeborg is my Great Great Grandmother and came back to La Crosse, Wisconsin from Nebraska to marry my Great Grandfather (a Norwegian!).

I hired a researcher some years ago to trace this family back a couple of generations, but now am in the process of fleshing that out some more if I can. If you have any more knowledge of this family I'd be very interested in it!
