Surnames: Fosburg, Johansson, Anderson
I have taken over updating the Fosburg Family Tree from Aunt Lillian Fosburg Ward. She is the last of the originals and now at 94 we do not have much time left.

I have posted the tree at: http://members.cox.net/fosburgfamilytree but I am missing information on the original brothers. Aunt Lil said:
Unfortunately, not much is know of the origins of Anna Christine Anderson and Olof Gustaf Johansson. They came to this country in the 1800's and each settled in Dagus Mines, Pa.
My father's last name was johansson but took his mother's name, Forsberg (Swedish spelling) when he became a naturalized American citizen. The Americanized spelling of his name became FOSBURG.
One brother took the name of Sword and another, the name of Broberg at the same time. I think there was third brother but I do not remember his name or where all the brothers moved to in this country.

Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated.
