Hi Carolyn
I believe we are connected through Jonas Wallin born 12 Feb. 1810 Valdarve in Eskelhem, Gotland, Sweden.
Our ancestor the son of Jonas Wallin was Lars Petter Wallin born 8 Mar 1837. He was a seaman and arrived in Australia in 1869.
His sister was Christina Maria born 11 Oct 1843.
There was also Emma Johanna Catharina born 20 Sept 1840
Carl Niclas born 19 Dec 1845, Johan Alfred born 5 May 1849
Johan Oscar Ferdinand born 26 June 1852.
Christina Maria married a Lars Petter Wallin (born 10 Jan 1850)and they migrated to USA with Jonas Wallin on 13 May 1885.
Please contact us as we have just discovered the above information and wish to know more about our family
