Looking for this Swedish relative who came from Sweden and lived in Nebraska. He also has a son by the same name, although the father's original surname was Svensson. At some point, one of them changed their last name to Hamilton (probably the son, but not sure), and this is the name that has continued down through the family line.
There is a grave in Lincoln, NE for Caroline S. Hamilton on which the birth and death dates match up as being the wife of the elder Carl Johan. She must have Americanized her last name, as in Sweden she was known as Stina Catharina Samuelsdotter (Stina is probably short for Christina or Kristina, or something similar).
Does anyone have any information on these people or their family?
