My John Oscar Ostlund b. 1849 in Sweden married Johannah Louisa Hammerland. They married in Sweden, had first 2 of thier 6 kids there before emmigrating to CarltonCo about 1882. Kids were Oscar, Walborg, Minnie, Ida, Emma and Albert. All married but Emma died as a baby and Albert remained single. Oscar had 2 children, Walborg 10 perhaps, Minnie 2 and Ida had my mother.
When John died in 1899, his obituay listed he left a surviving sister, Mrs. Anderson ( no first name unfortunately). My research suggest she is Mrs. Andrew Anderson, AKA Emma S. I cant find them in 1900 census, but 1910 census lists Andrew, Emma S and a daughter Lulu, age 19. She lists she had 4 children of which 2 were still living. They also list they had been married 39 years and both emmigrated in 1870 to the US.
Anyone know either family?
