This world is getting smaller and smaller. I just received an e-mail from my daughter-in-law and she says she's been talking to you for quite awhile! My daughter-in-law is Audra Tuveson. She's been working hard, not only on the Tuveson genealogy but the genealogy of both of her parents. Did she direct you to her web site? It has pictures of Arthur Tufveson, he was the brother of my husbands grandfather, his pictures always remind me of the painting "American Gothic". One thing we've found with the Tuveson's is that they are a pretty solitary bunch. Many of them never married. When they did marry they had small families, one or two children, and of those one or two, maybe one married. I have a spinning wheel that was brought over from Sweden. My husband's father had a plate made that states: The Tufveson Spinning Wheel - Brought to this country in 1883 by Kjersti Tufveson (nee Hanson) who came with her three children: Sigfried (Fred), Hilda, and Arvid to join her husband, Carl Peter Tufveson, who had immigrated earlier to Grand Haven, Michigan, where he worked in the lumber industry as a logger.
They had two more children Arthur and Ernest born in this country. Of those five children Fred moved to LaGrande, Ore. and I haven't found much info on him, Hilda never married and lived out her life on the family farm in Tustin, Michigan, Arvid married, had one son (my husbands father, Carl Douglas (he dropped the f in Tufveson), Arthur married and had one daughter and she still lives in a cottage on the farm in Tustin (she never married), Ernest was a professor at a university in California and has passed away only in the last five years or so. My husband has one sister, she never married, and is a commercial artist in Los Angeles.
I guess I've rambled on long enough, and will talk to you soon.
