Laura Augusta Catharina Haglund was born out of wedlock
in 1866 in Oskarshamn to the unmarried servant Johanna Gustava Carlsson. In later records she was noted as Gustava Sofia Haglund. In the 1880's Gustava married the plater Anders Jacob Bengtsson, born in 1842, who died in the 1890's. No children were born in that marriage. In the census of 1900 both the widowed Johanna and her unmarried daughter Laura were together and it was noted they were very poor and lacking work. Some time after that, Laura married my husband's father, Jacob Herman Jacobsson Kiviniemi Dahlqvist and the two, along with Laura's widowed mother, immigrated and ended up in Coos Bay, OR where my husband, their only child, was born in 1906. Johanna later disappeared on a walk, and was never seen again, and no remains ever found. They are all deceased now. I do not know if, or how, our Haglund's could be connected, but you never know! Herman's surname was changed to Stone according to a document signed by some royalty of Russia that my step-daughter has in her possession as well as a marriage certificate in 1904 in the names of Herman Dalquist and Laura Haglund issued in Coos Bay, OR. Their headstones in the cemetery are Herman Stone and Katerina Stone. My husband was always "Stone" as am I and all his children. I am thinking my search is hitting a dead end at this point.
