Jerry & Colleen (Swanson) Longstrom both have ancestors from Sweden.

They have many relatives now living in Sweden, Norway & the USA.

Colleen's relatives are from the Mellerud area, in Älvsborg län,

and most are from the Jårn, Bolstad, & Brålanda parishes.

Please contact me if you can add something or, correct any errors.

Direct Descendants of Lars Olofsson to Colleen Longstrom

(genealogy chart below)

Colleens great grandfather, Erik Magnus Svensson left Sweden to come to America on July 8th 1872. He went to Rockford Illinois, and lived there a short time. He changed his name to Swanson, married Elizabeth Levine, and then moved to Coon Creek Minnesota. He farmed in MN. the rest of his life. Erik's father, Sven Engelbrektsson and his wife Kerstin Eriksdotter, and their children came to Rockford Illinois. Their oldest son Eric Magnus Svensson (Swanson) was already there. The other children were Carl Johan, August, & Albin and their sister Josefine. All of the family changed their name to Swenson. Carl Johan was very successful in the furniture business in Rockford Illinois. (Skandia furniture) August was a painter in Rockford and a member of the city council. Albin died at the age of 17 from inflammation of the bowels. He was working at a furniture factory. Josefine married E. A. Norrman and was a housewife. Of the Rockford Swensons, Carl Johan was the only one to have any children. His children were Carl E. & Thorborg. Carl E. married Eva Garver & was an inventor and had patents for the universal joint for automobiles as well as many other patents. Carl & Eva did not have any children. Thorborg never married, and was a school teacher. Research has shown that Carl E. and Eva and Thorborg traveled extensively and that Thorborg went to Sweden a number of times. All of the Swenson's of Rockford were very active in the Trinity Lutheran church. We are still looking for some Engelbrektsson relatives in Sweden.They were from the Mellerud area in Älvsorgs län. Sven Engelbrektsson had 3 sisters and 3 brothers. Eva & Maria (twins) b: March 25, 1830. Eva we know stayed in Sweden. I have found Maria & her family near Winthrop Minnesota One of his brothers Johannes b: Dec. 13, 1835 died at two years of age, and his parents Engelbrekt Svensson and Lisa Bengstdotter named their next son Johannes. He was born Feb. 2, 1839. Johannes as far as we know stayed in Sweden. Sven's other brother Jan Jacob Engelbrektsson moved to Bernadotte Minnesota, farmed and raised a son named Erik Magnus Engelbrektsson. Jan Jacob was one of the founding members of the Bernadotte church. The family changed their name to Engelbert. Erik married Signild (Cecelia) Svensson, and later when Signild passed away, married Freda Karlsdotter. He had children from both marriages and there are many relatives living in the US at this time.

*Still looking for Erik Magnus Jacobsson*

Kristina married Jacob Nilsson and had 4 children named, Maja Lisa, Johannes, Mathilda, & Erik Magnus. The bad news is that, Jacob died at age 40, Kristina died at age 47, Mathilda died at age 8, and Johannes died at age 14. There was really tough times in Sweden. That is the part of the research that I do not like. The news on Maja Lisa Jacobsdotter, is that she moved around a lot from farm to farm and then at the age of 27 on April 1, 1881 she came to the USA. She left from Göteborg Sweden on the ship Rollo. (picture on ships page on my other web site)

After doing more research and going over old research, I have found that Erik Magnus Jacobsson stayed on the farm at age 7 when the rest of the family died or moved away. (Maja Lisa) He stayed on the farm (Rädane Norr) for a few years as an orphan, then moved around to other farms, and I have found that he came to America with his sister in 1881.

Linda Lane has found that Eric Magnus Jacobson was living with his relative

Eric Magnus Engelbert in Kennedy Minnesota.

In the 1900 census, it shows that Erik Magnus was living with his cousin Eric Engelbert and his

wife Freda and their children Anna, John, Maria, Carl (Charles) Elmer, Agnes, & John.

I have not been able to find him since that time.

One of the twins Eva Engelbrektsdotter, moved around from parish to parish and ended up in Ör and died in 1880 alone

without ever getting married or having children.
