Well, more questions than answers, as usual. First of all, it's not August V. Fyr...every sourse, icluding family history, indicates his name was August Anders or August Andrew, so I have no idea where the V came from. However, based on the names of his wife and children, there is absolutely no doubt that this is my great grandfather. Further, it now appears that their name was Anderson upon leaving Sweden, so the odds on finding the right August Andersen are slim. *sigh* I did find one source, rootsweb, that gave the names of his parents, but no other info, so I have no doubt whether their names are correct, as I have found some glaring errors in the rootsweb information. I'd appreciate it if anyone runs across any ifo if they would share it with me. This little dead end (no pun intended) is driving me crazy.
