Isaacson Family Genealogy Forum
I am trying to find the children of Andrew Isaacson who came over from Sweden (Rumelshea?) in 1851 and first settled in Columbia County, Wisconsin with his family and then possibly moved to Fergus Falls, Otter Tail Co., MN. His father was John Isaacson who was born in Sweden around 1804. John's wife's name was Christina, born Sweden about 1795 according to census information from Lewiston twp., Columbia Co., Wisconsin. John Isaacson and Christina had three children: Samuel born in Sweden around 1830, Sarah Christina born in Sweden in 1832 and Andrew - born in Sweden around 1835. The daughter Sarah C. Isaacson married my husband's great-great grandfather Terry Crumlett in 1853 in Portage, Columbia Co. Wisconsin and then moved to Marquett County, Wisconsin finally settling in Brown County,MN. Samuel Isaacson married a girl named Catherine (born in Darmstadt, Germany born 1843) and was living with his parents in the 1860 census of Columbia county, Wisconsin. They had 2 daughter - Sarah C. Isaacson born 1866 and Louisa -1869. The wife died early on with one girl while the other girl married a man named Hill and possibly moved to Chicago. Andrew and family were living in Lewiston, Columbia Co., Wisconsin in 1860,1870 and 1880. His biography was provided to me "ANDREW ISSAACSON, farmer, Sec. 22: P.O. Lewiston: was born in Sweden in 1835: came with his father's family to the United States in 1851: they came to Columbia Co. and settled on Sec. 22, where they now reside; his parents had three children, Andrew being the youngest. His wife is a native of Norway; has six children-John A., Henry, Charles, August A., Edward and Susan A.; lost one daughter, Mary C."
Andrew (b.about 1835) married Mary (maybe Oleson since a man named Burtel Oleson lived with them in 1860. Burtel Olson could also have been brother to Christina Isaacson, mother of Andrew). Mary was born in Norway around 1842. Andrew and Mary married the end of 1859 or beginning of 1860. According to census their children are: John - 1861, Henry - 1863, Charles 1865, August 1867, Edward 1872, Susan about 1880 and Mary C. who died early. If anyone has any information on this family I would be extremely grateful. During this same time period there was another Isaacson family living in Lewiston, Columbia Co., Wisconsin who could have been related to John Isaacon, the father. His name was Lars Isaacson born (1818) in Sweden with wife Emma.
Thanks ever so much.
