Hi,

do you have any additional information such as date of birth, names of parents and/or siblings. Anything that might help the search for you?

Mattsson was more than likely his last name when leaving Sweden. Mattsson is not a middle name. Rido or Redo was probably a name he took on after arriving in the US.

Let me know and I'll do another search for you

You sound right on the money here. I think his last name was MATTSSON. I have DOBs ranging from 1842 - 1845. The most accurate I think being Jan 5 1843.
I do not know the parents names or any siblings. Wanting to upgrade to world explorer but so busy with work have no time :o( if you could check for me that would be wonderful. Unsure when he left Sweden. earliest census I have is 1880 that lists him.
His name was spelled so many ways Nils, Nels, REDO RIDO.
Most frequent is Nils M Rido.
WE all have blonde straight hair yet everyone thought we were French as the family spelled it redeau and pronounced it redoe hahaha
thanks so much
Diane

Hi,

I found the following on the Swedish emigration DVD "EMIBAS"
I had 5 hits when searching for

First name: Nils
Last name: Mat
DOB: 1842-1845
Year of emigration: 186 (as you wrote 1865 in your first post)

Year of emigration for 4 or them was:
Nils Jacob Mathiasson, 11 MAR 1844 emigrated: 1869
Nils Mattisson, b. 24 OCT 1843 emigrated: 1867
Nils Mattsson, b. 2 APR 1845 emigrated 1861
Nils Mattsson, b. 6 JAN 1842 emigrated 1868
These 4 all looks like they were single and came over alone.

And then there is this family that came over, where the son is Nils Johan

Mats Matsson, b. 26 MAY 1820 in Hälleforst, Örebro län, Västmanland.
Johanna Jacobsdotter, b. 25 SEP 1821 in Hälleforst, Örebro län, Västmanland.

Their children:
Nils Johan, b. 19 JAN 1845 in Hälleforst, Örebro län, Västmanland.
Gustaf, b. 10 DEC 1848 in Hälleforst, Örebro län, Västmanland.
Carl Petter, b. 6 DEC 1851 in Hälleforst, Örebro län, Västmanland.
Johanna Carolina, b. 11 DEC 1857 in Ljusnarsberg, Örebro län, Västmanland.
Augusta, b. 6 JUN 1861 in Norrbärke, Kopparbergs län, Dalarna
Lovisa, b. 27 JAN 1865 in Ludvika, Kopparbergs län, Dalarna

The family emigrates 24 MAY 1865 from Klenshyttan, Kopparbergs län, Dalarna to the US.
----------------------------
You could check if any of those children or the parents for that matter used the last name REDO or RIDO

Let me know what you think

wow, he was married to Antonette or Antonetta HANSON,(they married here)
their children were Joseph, Norman, Minnie , Otto, Clara and Eda.

I also saw a spelling of METTSSON does that make sense.

I do think he was single and came over alone, my guess.

Thanks for all this WOW

HI Anna,

I have his gravestone where he is buried in allamakee county Iowa with his wife Anoinette or Antonetta (sp)
Our Father and Mother
Nils M. DOD Aug 6, 1893 50y 7m 1d
would make his Jan 5 1843 DOB perfect

Hansom (believe it was spelled HANSON- her parents were both born in NORWAY - she was born in Allamakee Co IOWA)
wife of Nils M. Redo DOB 8/30/53
DOD June 11, 1891 37y 9m 10d

So I think you have him on your search right?

OMY GOODNESS I am having such trouble because of the DOBs. Different documents have different ages for him all within 1 yr of each other. The 1885 Census record has him at 42 years of age on JAN 1st, that sounds right since his birthday making him 43 would have been Jan 6th.

So perhaps he is indeed the Nils Mattsson with DOB 6 jan 1842 :o)

sorry for so many posts, I have not delved into my tree for months and when I got your email I had to relook at so many things.

Thanks so much ANNA
are you of swedish ancestry?

I found the following on the Swedish DVD "Swedish death index 1901-2009"

Johannes came back to Sweden before 1876 from the US and married, he had at least 4 children. He dies 21 DEC 1915 at Östra Skyberg, Älgå, Värmlands län, Värmland. Married 26 JUL 1876.
