-----------------
You can order Agnes and Gustafs estate inventories via Vadstena regional archives in order to find out if they had any children. I translated the page via Google translate http://tinyurl.com/3z8x3nv
Just make sure to tell them that you are only interested to find out more information about their children, nothing else and it will not take them long to find it. Give as much detail as you can.

I don't mind if you contact me once you have that information and I'll try to find out more for you.

Please note that I am not related to this family.

Good luck

All the best
Anna

Wow I feel like I hit the motherload!!!
Thank you Thank you Thank you

There was another daughter listed in the attached church records (Emma Carolina Håkansdotter) who surived to adulthood she married Adams Larsson and then Bernhard Swanson in 1862 in Nittorp, Älvsborg, Sweden 8 Nov 1889.

Berhard was b. 21 Jun 1865 in Dalstorp, Älvsborg, Sweden. His parents were Svenning Peterson b. 10 May 1826 in Mossebo, Älvsborg and Magdalena Svensdatter b. 5 Jun 1829 in Valdshult, Jönköping

Emma Carolina, Berhard and her/their children - Charles, Thyra, Johan and George (born in Malmback, Jönköping)
emigrated in 1891 settling first in Bradford, PA near her sister Josefina (Håkansdotter) Swanson. They had 2 children born in PA - Elmer and Oscar.

The family then moved to Beloit, Wisconson where they had 4 more children - Herbert, Arthur, Ellen and Dorothy. Emma Carolina died 22 Dec 1907 and Berhard 9 Feb 1924 in Rockford, Illinois.

Still looking for Amanda Lovisa Håkansdotter b. 1862 in Nittorp, Älvsborg, Sweden ...think I found her but the family tree is private hoping to get an invite.

I'll have to look into getting Anna Maria (Håkansdotter) Petersson's daughter Agnes and son Gustafs estate inventories like you suggested.

Thanks
Susan

I am responding because Bernhard Svenningson's sister Amanda is my Great Grandmother. I have a family genealogy which is fairly complete" and am now traveling to Sweden on vacation, and planning to visit Dalstorp. I am hoping to visit a cemetery pr church or homestead of Svenning Peterson, or one of their children, or even find some cousins. I do see where Emma Karolina Hakanstatter was born 23 March 1864, and Bernhard was actually her second husband. Our family history was missing the reason they chose to settle in Bradford, PA, so now we can add this was because of her sister! However we still do not know why they then resettled in Beloit.

If you anyone has information regarding cemeteries, homesteads, or other family connections to check out while in Sweden we would be so appreciative, and we will be documenting with photos and interviews as we can.

My Swansons from Titusville area. My grandfather also moved to Beloit WI to work in the foundry. There were two Elmer Swanson's from PA in Beloit at the same time. Seems like there was a large group of Swedish ancestry who went there.
