Hello Sarah..
we are Olofson descedents but don't know much about the Olofson side of our family other than they were from Sweden LOL!
There is a Ture Simon Olofson listed on the Ellis Island Wall
www.ellisisland.org Panel 322 whom we believe to be my great-grandfathers (Johan Adolf (Olaf?) Olofsons (b. Eskilstuna 1867) brother.
Johan came to U.S. on or before 1898 as we have an 1898 pic of John with our great-grandmother Johanne Faurschou taken in USA.
Ture married Elsa who had a son Eric who lived in NJ, USA but Eric is more than likely deceased by now.. and thats the end of the trail for now
