Erick (Eric) Wallin was born 28 December 1860 in Sweden and emmigrated to the United States in 1883, eventually settling in Stromsberg, Nebraska. His parents are listed on his marriage certificate as Peter (Pehr?) Wallin and Betsy/Bettie (Elisabet?) Olson. He may have had a sister, Anna Wallin born about 1868-1869, who married Nels Peter Hugo Branting, another Swedish immigrant, on 23 July 1889 in Stromsberg, Nebraska. Erick Wallin initially lived with the Samuel Samuelson family (Samuel (26), Augusta (24), and Samuel's mother Magaret (54)) when he came to Stromsberg, Nebraska. Erick Wallin's parents, Peter Wallin and Betsy Olson may have moved to Stromsberg, Nebraska as well, possibly after Erick Wallin had immigrated.

Erick Wallin and Anna Johnson (born about 1859 in Sweden)were married on 27 December 1888 in Stromsberg, Nebraska. The couple had one child, Elmer E. Wallin, on 08 December 1889, my grandfather, and Anna Johnson died at childbirth or shortly thereafter. Erick remarried Betsy Johnson (b. 09 June 1858, Sweden) on 04 June in Stromsberg, Nebraska.

Any idea where in Sweden Erick Wallin was born or where the Wallin family lived in Sweden? Any information on this Wallin family would be greatly appreciated! Additionally looking for any information about Anna Johnson. The Wallin family may have been related to the Samuelson family as well as the Malmberg family. Thank-you! Wez
