My great grandmother Brita Hammerstrom came to the US in 1905 through Ellis Island via Liverpool on the "Oceanic 2" of the White Star line, accompanied by her brother Viktor.
Her parents were Johann & Brita Casja (Hagstrom) of Roste Bollnes, Halsingland, Sweden. Her siblings were:
*Jonas Erik (married Signe Eliason; 1 child)
There is documentation placing them after immigration in Kiron County, Iowa - Minneapolis, Minnesota - Watertown, South Dakota - Vermillion, South Dakota - and others. She married Gust E. Johnson and they had 2 daughters and three sons:
*Robin Bernice (1914 - 1992) My grandmother. (married Walter L. Rogers; 2 children)
*George Edward (married Nell Eckberg; 6 children)
*Lester (Punch) (married Delilah; 1 child)
*Bertha (Johnny) (married George Edward; 1 child)
*Alexander Hamilton (d: 1947 in Redfield State Home & School, South Dakota) Never married - developmentally disabled from birth.
I would like to hear from anyone who is related to the Johnson/Hammerstrom/Hagstrom families and their descendents or ancestors.
