Looking for information on Swedish emigrant Sven Nilsson who changed his name to Westergren before emigrating to US about 1880. We believe he lived in Illinois and was a coal miner. Later the name evolved into Westergreen and his son, Nels Svenson Westergreen also emigrated around 1881 and lived in several states -- Utah, Colorado, Nevada -- working as a coal miner. Sven Nilsson Westergreen had one daughter, Pernilla (Nellie) She came to US around 1881 and married Will Erickson, nicknamed "ERIK." Will and Nellie lived in Oregon and may have adopted a son.
