I am looking for information on my grandmother mothers brother (FMM brother). Olof Axel Edström born 7 mars 1841 in Sunnansjö Fjällsjö, parish Sweden.
Olof Axel Edström left Gothenburg 23 Julie 1869 and had a ticket to Chisago. He was unmarried and 24 years old and he went alone.
The first Steam ship Albion goes from Gothenburg to Hull in England and there he takes a train to Liverpool and a new ship to New York. Olof Axel Edstrom had one ship partner Anders Daniel Sundqvist born 22 January 1845 in Sunnansjö Fjällsjö parish, Sweden. I found him in the death book he dead 6 Julie 1870 in Memphis (Fjällsjö C:4) . I don’t know what he dead of?
When I was in Gothenburg in the County records office and looked in the passenger’s list I found more people from same aria (Västernorrlands län). The name of this people was Erika Westerlund, maid 21 years old and born in Helgum parish, Sweden and Anna B Olofsdotter, maid 24 years old born in Helgum parish, Sweden. These two girls had tickets to Chicago. Maybe one of these girls would be the wife to Olof Axel Edstrom?
The number of passenger:
1725 O.A Edstrom, labourer. Fjällsjö parish.
1726 A.D Sundqvist, labourer. Fjällsjö parish.
1727 Erika Westerlund maid Helgum parish.
1735 Anna B Olofsdotter maid Helgum parish.
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
