I have that information, I need to find out where he applied for his Naturalization and where he came from in Sweden. And also his wife Carrie or Caroline Anderson Johnson who was born in DK. I would think that there would be some county things he was famous for from 1882 on.

I am glad to meet you. I have been hunting for information on Matilda's side. My mother was Carl's daughter. I have all the ancestry done on Carrie/Karen Anderson side but have no clue about confirming the Johnson side of the family. Was told Edward's grave is in Iron Mt. MI, and grandfather Carl is in Ionia MI, my mother is buried in Ludington. GGF Charles grave is in Rhinelander WI but don't know where he originated from?? Some say somewhere in Sweden, need to know when, and correct date of birth. Did he have family in the US brothers or sisters? Where was his logging/sawmill at in Faithorn?? I did meet by phone a cousin from Edwards side who lives in Sagola MI. Plan to get that way this year yet. Can you send me info on your grandmother and possibly more on the Johnson's? My email is rfaulkner06@gmail.com Thank you so much. Rita

I don't know if you received my email, the phone number you gave me for Ruth did not go through. Can you either give me another number or address that I can write her and ask questions? I will tell you like I did with the other Johnson's, whatever I find and gather from the information I will send your direction too if you provide me with a mailing address. I have ggm Carrie (Anderson) Johnson ancestry way back thanks to a friend from Denmark and some other facts I got in Upper Michigan that confirmed her identy. Rita

Years ago, my Father took me to Pemene Falls near Faithorn, and said that was where Charles Anderson had logged, and right at that falls they dammed the river up so logs would have excess water to float down when the dam was blasted open. Google Pemene Falls Faithorn for pix of the falls.

Why with Mathilda's name you put (Anderson) after? It should be (Johnson) since her father was Johnson right?

You have anderson again, did he go by Anderson instead of Johnson? On the land given to Carrie his wife, in the divorce, he is listed with the land as CC Johnson. I know sometimes the names are not complete on papers, because there isn't enough room. Carrie his wife's name was Anderson, It may be because they didn't want comfusion that he had his name changed from Anderson to Johnson?? I will have to look into this farther.
