Trying to trace the Gustaf Alfred Eklund family. He married Anna Lisa Jansson(Johnson) in 1888. Family traced back to Sweden where they went by the name of Petersson. They lived in Omaha Nebraska.

We would like some more info on the Andrew that you speak of. My wife has an Andrew Martin Eklund born January 4, 1862 in Lake Elizabeth, Minnesota. He married Sarah Ellen Dure, October 17, 1888 in Hallock, Minnesota. Can you tie these in anyway, or do you have that much info ?

I may not be much help, but my ancestors settled from Sweeden, in Isanti and Cambrige Minnesota.

Thanks for the reply, but it doesn't sound on the surface like there is a match. I have relatives from Red Lake Falls and Hallock, Minnesota. I don't know how close those are to your location, nor do I know for sure when they came from the home land, which ever that may be.

Am trying to research , John Thomas Sanders,from Minnesota. He was married to a Elizabeth Dure. They were living in Palasade,Minnesota in April, 1920,when their son Earl Henry Sanders, was born. Earl was living in Massachusetts in the 1940's and 50's. Any of this sound familiar?

my great great grandfather came from Sweden some tine
in the 1800's. He changed his name from Olson to Eklund
on the way over on the ship. he had a tatoo of the name Eklund
put on his back so the imigration people would believe him. His
wife was Hanna.

Thanks for the reply, but if his name was changed on the way over, I don't believe we can make a match.
