The date on his death certificate listed his birth as Dec 15, 1855 Sweden. No I was using Horsens as an example since his wife was suppose to be from that area in DK but was around As Vejile DK. It was just said for Charles as Stockholm.
He died in Rhinelander Wisconsin June 30 1942. I was told by his granddaughter that he saw the Statue of Liberty when coming into the USA so he came in through New York. Then she said he went to Michigan from there, I don't know how valid her comments are. They didn't know where in Sweden he came from, she said he didn't talk about it, or she doesn't remember? I think it odd that none of the different lines, Johnson, LaRoche, Bengtson families don't know where he came from other than Sweden?
I have relatives in Menominee County Michigan who I will try to get information that she can maybe look up. Right now it would be hard for her since it is winter worse up that direction than here. I know on the license for marriage on some of the daughters information, unless the person writing out the form didn't understand what she said and put an E for Charles E Johnson, when everything else has Charles C Johnson? I need to ask you, is there anything that Charles would have had to put Where in Sweden he came from? I can not get his naturalization paper copies, since I don't know for sure what date he came in to the country and if he got the naturalization in Michigan or was it in New York where he came in from Sweden??Thank you for any help you can give me on this.
