States: Pennsylvania: Elk
My great, great-grandfather was Charles Johnson (b. 1866, d. 1926 in Erie, PA). He was married to Hilda Sophia (Wecall?) Johnson (b. 1865, d. 1936 in Erie, PA). They were from Sweden but I’m not sure what year they came to the US. They had eight living children: Carl, Jennie, Minnie (Bjelke), Walter, Arthur, Algot (Albert-my great-grandfather), Edwin, and Harry. I think they had a child that died but I can’t confirm this. They originally came to Elk County but spread out to surrounding counties through the years.
Charles’s sister, Albertina Josephine Johnson (b. 1873, d. 1957) married Charles Carlson (also from Sweden, b. 1872, d. 1956). They had four living children: Harry, Carl, Oscar, and Arthur. They had a daughter who died named Frida Louisa Albertina Carlson. They are all buried in the Maria Lutheran Cemetery, Dagus Mines, PA. I seem to be able to find more information on Albertina’s family than her brother (or any other possible siblings).
Looking for any information regarding these families. My grandfather Harry James Johnson (b. 1926) passed in 2008; he knew EVERYTHING about his family but I never asked enough questions. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
