Surnames: Ekdahl
Looking for family or any information regarding Harold C. or G. EKDAHL b. 9 Feb. 1909, possibly Moline IL (Rock Island Co.) and d. 7 Dec. 1992, Joliet IL (Will Co.). 1930 Census lists a Harold G. Ekdahl as head of household in Moline IL (Rock Island Co.), estimated birth year as 1904, age in 1930 as 25, w/birthplace being Sweden. Harold ("Harry" as he was known to myself and certain others) worked for the E & J Railroad in Joliet, and was married & divorced with at least 2 sons before meeting and marrying my mother. One son was named Harold ? Ekdahl Jr., approximate age of 10-12 in 1962. Harold (??) EKDAHL m. Barbara (Burress-maiden) Merrick 20 Oct. 1962 in Joliet IL (Will Co.). My mother was married & divorced previously to Leroy E. SHULENBERG circa 1942-1943, and Charles Forrest MERRICK (my father) in 1953. Harry and Barbara resided in Lockport IL until about 1966, when my mother left Illinois....moved to Corpus Christi TX (Neuces Co.) where she died 26 March 1968. No children were born to this couple, and I do not know if Harry re-married, or where he is buried. Any information welcome!
