I am looking for information about my gg grandparents, Jons Hakansson and Hanna Pehrsdotter who came to America through NY in 1856. They had married in Everod, Socken, Kristianstaad, Sweden on 12/30/1846. They moved west through Geneseo, Illinois, Iowa and settled around Fairfield Nebraska. They had Elizabeth, Anna, Peter, John and Alfred. Elizabeth born in 4/4/1850 in Barrestad, Christians Lau, Sweden. She married A.G. Linden and settled in Fairfield, Nebraska. Anna born in 8/5/1855 in Barrestad, Sweden, married John Torell. They had 8 children. Peter b. 8/1856 became a member of the Nebraska State Legislature. John (1863-1943) married Ida Lehmkuhl and moved to Mobile, Alabama and had six children. Alfred b. 1866 became a medical doctor who practiced in Chicago.
I would really be interested in anything about these Hakansons in Nebraska or Sweden.
