Yes he did!!! Maybe you're on to something!!! THe names of all of his children are: Alf Fredrick, Oscar, Anton, John, Rose Christine, Alma, and Mable. I got those names from my cousin directly. I have a birth record for the person named Mable. Her name isn't on the birth record, but my cousin told me that the record is for her. I have a copy from the Chicago register of births. If you are interested in a copy, let me know.
