My father was Frank Richard Dahlstrom, Brn 11 Sept, 1891 in Stromsberg Nebraska. He grew up in Grand Island.
He had brothers and sisters George, Harold, Neva, Nora, May.
His mothers name was Spong, first name may have been Fannie.
HIs parents immigrated from Sweden, and it is said they had the last name Gustafson. Due to so many others with the same name, they changed their name to Dahlstrom to solve mail delivery problems.
They were ranchers / farmers.
His sister, May, married Leo Stuhr. I believe there is a museum in Grand Island with his name.
Neva married Harry Minor.
My father had the habit of calling ALL the dogs I ever owned, SKEEZ-ox. Does anyone with Swedish heritage recognize this word? I would love to know what it means.
Hope to fine some relatives out there.
