HOLMSTROM of Sweden, Wisconsin, and Washington State

I am looking for descendants and ancestors of Oscar HOLMSTROM (b ~1863, Sweden). I believe his father may have been named Carl (also of Sweden). I don’t have any other information on his parents, siblings, or emigration timeline, but I do know that he passed away on 5 October 1927 in Everett, Snohomish County, Washington.

Oscar HOLMSTROM married Jane LAVELLE (b. ~1877? In “English-speaking” Canada). The couple resided in Sawyer County, Wisconsin and had five sons between 1897 and 1905, Thomas C, Howard, Francis, Warren, and Daniel (or David?). Sometime around 1905 they moved to a rural area of Snohomish County, Washington and had a daughter Verna, born on Christmas Day in 1906.

Thomas married a woman named Helen (b ~1896, Minnesota) and had at least one child, a daughter Shirley (b ~1929). I do not know Helen’s maiden name but I do know her parents and ancestors were from Norway.

Warren married Martha (b ~1907, WA) and had three daughters, Joann (~1931), Barbara (~1933), and Jean (~1935), as well as a son James (~1938). I am unaware if they had any more children. At this time, I do not have any records of Martha’s maiden name.

Verna wed Patrick Joseph CALLAN (b 1900, Dundalk, Louth, Ireland) on April 28, 1927, likely somewhere in Snohomish County, WA. The couple had three daughters, Patricia (~1929), Kathleen (1931-2011), and Margaret Jo (1933-1979) and raised their family in Everett, WA.
