Carl Gustaf Carlson family 1890 - 1910 Williamson County

Carl Gustaf Carlson family 1890 - 1910 Williamson County

Surnames: Carlson Karlsson
Hi!

I'm looking for information about the family of Carl Gustaf Carlson. They immigrated from Sweden with their destination listed as Round Rock, Texas, on August 8, 1890. The family included his wife Anna Charlotta; sons Frans Oscar, Gustaf Theodore, and John August Jelmar Carlson. I haven't found any of them in either the 1890 or 1900 Census.

So far I haven't been able to find any records of the family having arrived in Round Rock. In some genealogical work Carl Gustaf Carlson and Frans Oscar Carlson are both listed as having died in Texas in June 1900. No details were given.

Gustaf Theodore Carlson next appears in 1911 Georgetown when he marries Lillian Sophia Swedhin. So far I haven't found him in the 1910 Census. In the 1910 Census, Anna Charlotta Carlson and her son John August Jelmar Carlson appear in Kandiyohi, Minnesota.

I'm looking for any information on the Carlson family in Round Rock and Williamson County between 1890 and 1910. I'm especially curious about any information about accidents or otherwise in June 1900 that might have accounted for the death of Carl and his son Frans.

Carl Gustaf Carlson is my grandfather and I'm trying to solve a few mysteries in the family genealogy. Any help is deeply deeply appreciated. At the moment, I've hit a brick wall in my work.

Thanks!

Randy Carlson

You've found Gus' marriage to Lillie. Did you also find the birth of their son, Alton Lamar, 22 Jun 1918? Unable to assist with the family's history in the Travis County area. (I prefer Travis over surrounding counties 'cause it has the State Capitol at Austin.) Anyway, 1920 TX-Smith-Tyler Ward 3-District 82-Image 18 has Gus T. Carlson(39?), Lillie(38), and Alton L.(1 7/12). Gus immigrated in 1890 and was naturalized in 1900. Next, G. T. Carlson(51) and Alton(11) found 1930 AZ-Cochise-Douglas-District 33-Image 20. Alton married Modestine Minatra and they had Alton Benton, David Minatra, and Randolph Lamar. Birthdates listed Texas Birth Index, 1903-1997. SSDI Alton Lamar Carlson (22 Jun 1918 - Sep 1986) received last benefits in La Marque, Galveston County. Modestine Carlson also expired, 14 Mar 1980, in Galveston.

Gus registered for WWI Draft in Smith County, TX. Birth listed as 29 Apr 1879 in contrast to 1878 found on 1900 TX-Williamson-Precinct 1-District 122-Image 5 census. Lotta Carlson(61) was widowed with Gus(22) and John(19). Recommend posting in Galveston County for obits: Alton and Modestine Carlson. Be sure to include dates and "known" possible survivors.

Thank you very very much!!!

The new (for me) 1900 Census information explains a lot. Right beneath the Carlsons are the Rydstrands. Alfred Rydstrand married Blenda Swedhin, and Gustaf later married Lillian Sophia Swedhin. I'd always wondered how Gustaf and Lillian met. They were either neighbors, or they met through the Rydstrands.

It means a lot to me to finally know where my American Carlson ancestors were in 1900. I can't thank you enough.

Now the challenge is finding out how and where Carl Gustaf and his son Frans Oskar died. It was probably somewhere in that vicinity, and they're probably buried nearby. Any information and leads are greatly appreciated.

Thank you again so much for the information you've provided!

Death info will be difficult! Texas mandated vital records effective 1903. From daily genealogical search, there are people (not many) who died in 1980s and there are no official records. There were several Swedish Immigrants in 1900 Williamson County. Perhaps most attended the same church? That's where I'd look!

Thank You! I appreciate the information. I'm in the awkward situation of living in Austin less than 20 miles away. But I don't have a car and we don't have public transportation linking us to Georgetown yet. Once I have a car, I know the church the Swedhins went to, and that's probably the same one my Carlson ancestors attended.

Thank you again for your time and effort!
