This is a long shot- I am searching for my great-grandfather's origins. He said he came from Gotland. I know nothing about his family other than that he had a brother named Julius- he later named a son after him. My g-g-grandfather was Charley Pearson in the USA. He worked on a merchant ship that was stranded off the coast of Savannah. Charley "swam ashore" and never returned. His birth date on his tombstone is 1854. Could this be your "gold nugget" ancestor? Or do you know that person went farther west? Charley, to my knowledge, never left Georgia once he arrived. I have extensive research on his descendants which I am glad to share.
