Olof Nilsson & Lovisa Svensdotter - 1869
Posted by: Carlyanna Jay (ID *****5222) Date: December 31, 2004 at 12:27:09

Olof Nilsson (Hoij) - we think he dropped this) and Lovisa Svensdotter emmigrated from Sweden in 1869 to Moline, IL.
They had 4 children:
Olof Gustaf, b. 5 July 1859
Augusta, b. 14 Jan 1862
Christina, b. 8 Feb 1866
Carl Johan, b. 5 Jan 1869 - he may have died in route or
shortly after arrival.

Olof died 1870-1871 of an accident and Lovisa died around the same time in childbirth.

What happened to these children? I have had no luck anywhere. Any suggestions will be welcomed. Relatives in Sweden are trying to solve this mystery.

Have even tried "Swedes in Moline, Illinois" by Lilly Setterdalhl but this is mostly memories of those people who still had relatives living in the area and listings of businesses and newspapers around the turn of the century.
