John Peter was AKA as Peter or John (nickname: "Cuba")Erickson while living in Cook. Johns wife: Elizabeth Johanna (Schroeder or Schroder) Erickson was born in Arvika Sweden.

Both John and Elizabeth died in Cook.

John and Elizabeth both from Sweden and imigrated in 1888.

John Peter Erickson we are told was born on Feb. 1863 in Sweden, we don't know where, his parents were Erik Erickson and Maria Pinson of Sweden.

1990 Census states he was a farmer.

We have no other information. This seems like alot. Because they were local in Cook for so many years, there must be other records for Johnand his family. We would appreciate with a greatful heart any other information about the family.
