Looking for Alexander Norris family

Posted: 7 Aug 2013 9:40PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Norris, Norquist, Norrisquey
My great grandfather Alexander Norris born Aug 15, 1883 came to America with his older brother about 1892. They were from Sweden.
I am trying to find out any info about his family in Sweden, or his brothers family in the US.
I have very little info available, as my Grandfather (Howard Wallace Norris) was only 3 when his father (Alexander Norris) died in a coal mine accident in Montgomery County Illinois DOD 9/7/1912 article found in the Montgomery Ill historical society web page.
I believe that they had family in Wisconsin, and the original Swedish spelling of their last name was possibly Norquist - Norrisy - or Norisquie
