Larry, in Sweden, the name Eriskson is like the name Smith here. A certain amount of the young men joining the service were required to change their last name to help make paper work less confusing. My grandfather changed to Kardell. His sisters kept the last name of Erickson. It also appears that Hulda is a common name in Sweden. No one from my family comes from Arkansas. I do have a cousin living in Minnesota, which is where a lot of Swedes appear to have settled, but she moved there about 20 years ago. I sorry, but I don't think we are related. Kathy
