My great grandfather came from the island of Gotland, Sweden in 1880, came through St. Louis, MO and settled in Bonne Terre, MO in St. Francois County. His name was Carl Ludwig Wiman (last name was Carlsson or Karlsson originally in Sweden). He had 3 brothers that may have immigrated to the USA - Johan Petter Carlsson, Carl Oscar Carlsson and Lars Ferdinand Carlsson (believed Lars went by Ferdinand and took on a step fathers last name of Carlqvist and may have came to the USA in 1881).
My grandfather lived in the same house in Bonne Terre, MO until his death - his name was Albert Ludwig Weiman. Albert had a sister named Edna Eleanora Wieman from St. Louis, MO and they had a brother named Carl "Henry" Weman (Wiman) from Oklahoma - county of Ottawa.
I have recently been to Sweden and researched some of these names , but still need more info. If you have any information on any of these people, please contact me - Jan Scott from Millstadt, IL
