Here are a few things we can see if it is the same family.
Was your grandfather Peter born around Jan 1,1867 in Helsingland Sweden?
Did he die in St Paul, Minnesota 1925 or about that?
Was he married to Hannah Johnson?
They had three children we know of, Alvin, Lloyd and Edna.
His brothers were Gustave(my great grandfather)Erik, Emil, John, that is the only ones we know of.
Peter came to the US about 1884 with his parents,first settling in Michigan then moved to Brainerd, Minnesota where he worked at the Northern Pacific Railroad shops. Does any of this information sound familiar? Let me know what you have. Nancy H

Five Norquist brothers moved to the United States (Erik, Peter, Gustav, John, Emil). I've heard that their last name in Sweden was Peterson (but that may be incorrect). I think I have pictures of Erik, Peter, and Gus and their wives. The following information was from my mother Eleanor when she was in her 80's, and may not be entirely correct. I hope you can follow my indentation (i.e. Erick and Mary's children were Bert, Roy and Julia, etc.).

Norquist (spouse's name in parenthesis)
-Erik (Mary)
--Bert (Doris)
---Bert Jr.(Carolyn)
----Ben (Jennifer)
----Mark
----Nels
---Myrtle (Olien)
----Erick
----Julie
---Roy (Celesta)
----Roy Jr. (Eleanor)
-----Eric (Gail)
------Rick
------John
-----Kristine (Erick H.)
------Linnea
------Karla
----Yvonne (Wayne L.)
-----Andy
-----Gus
-----Joe
--Julia - died quite young, don't know much about her.
-Peter (Hannah)
--Lloyd (Hazel)

--Alvin (Hazel)
--Edna (Houston)
--Phylis
-Gustav (Annie)
--Manfred
