Hello-My grandfather's name was Peter Wallin and I believe that he had a brother named Erick. Peter married Laura Pederson (born 05/30/1879). We know that our grandfather came from Sweden (my sister found his name on Ellis Island), but how he arrived in Minnnesota is unknown. There were children by the names of Ed, Gunnard, Leander, Harold and daughters whose names escape at the time being. The children are all deceased. My father was Leander August Wallin, born 07/13/1909, he died April 25, 1976. I will add more information as I accumulate it. Hope that this was helpful. I am also a P Wallin (Bateson)
