Magnus Swanson/Fjällsjö Sweden to Manitoba/1898
Posted by: Glenn Gustafson (ID *****3667) Date: May 10, 2002 at 15:49:57
  of 1701

We are searching for information on the following family which left Sweden for Manitoba, Canada in 1898:
-- Magnus Swanson, born July 27, 1858 in Fjällsjö Sweden
-- wife: Martha Matilda (Mårtensson) Swanson, born April 28, 1849 in Tåsjö Sweden
-- son: Ernest Theodore Swanson, born Aug 24, 1889 in Fjällsjö Sweden
Pictures taken around 1910 (est.) show them in a farm setting. It is thought that they might have left Canada for Minnesota in the 1900's. Using the information available on the website of Minnesota Historical Society, there are entries that 'maybe' our target family. However, they died in Hennepin County which is not exactly 'rural'.
-- Magnus Swanson, died Dec 25, 1935 -- CertID#1935-MN-022937
-- Matilda M. Swanson, died June 11, 1918 -- CertID# 1918-MN-024522
-- Ernest Theodore Swanson, died August 23, 1944 -- CertID#1944-MN-021315
We would appreciate any information that might help us track this family.
