Thank you Carolyn, that was a lot of work on your part.
I just received verification from Sweden.(Gen forum 43176) All the birth years I had are correct thus i suspect the birth dates may be as well. Although misprints certainly happened in the record keeping. and yes, Center City is close to Harris Mn. Numerous Swedes arrived there at the calling of previously landed emigrants.
Karolina/Caroline b.1865 has been very hard to track. She probably married a norwegian named Peterson as well.??
I do have some info but not much, on Ingrid Charlotte b.1861 and her husband "Charles"/Chas Peterson, a brick mason at Harris and we know that she encouraged her siblings to join them at Harris,even paid for their tickets. I am trying to find out if the were married in Sweden or in the US.
Thanks for your efforts :)/tj
