BRUNNSTEDT, JOHANSDOTTER posted by Sigvard Brunnstedt on Sunday, May 20, 2001
Email: sigvard.brunnstedt@telia.com

Please, give me a tip! Many of members of my ancestry migrated from Småland in Sweden to the United States of America. I now two names: The first one of them was Josefina Maria Johansdotter. Born 10th of Aug 1858 in Brunsmåla in the parish of Ålem. She left for North Branch, Minnesota the 21st of Aug 1884. The second one of them was Almida Elisabeth Brunnstedt who was born 17th of April 1871 in Brunsmåla in the same parish of Ålem. She left for North America on the 18th of May 1892. Both of them was my grandmother's sisters. My family name was spelled either Brunnstedt or Brunstedt during the 18th and 19th century. If you know that your family came from Sweden there is a possibility that we share ancestry. I've documented my ancestry and made it available on the Internet to find relatives in US. If you are interested, have look on my website, with address below:
Best regards Sigvard Brunnstedt

HOLT, HULT, HAKANSON, HOKANSON, JOHNSONposted by Jeffrey Elmquist on Friday, October 26, 2001
Email: elmquist@wcoil.com

I am specifically interested in details concerning the parents and siblings of Carl A. HULT; born 21 September 1840 in Smaland, Sweden; died 4 February 1928 in Langford, SD. He emigrated around 1869 and settled in Chisago County. He and his wife Louisa HAKANSON lived on a farm south of Chisago City - section 30, township 33, range 20. He and his children then moved to Langford, SD around 1887. I am also interested in details concerning Carl HULT's wife, as well as her parents and siblings. Louisa HAKANSON was born 19 July 1847. I am not sure if she was born in Sweden or America. Apparently she died in Chisago County sometime around 1887. Her parents appear to have been Johan or John HAKANSON / HOKANSON, born 6 May 1822; and Lisa born 3 March 1822. It also appears that John and his wife Lisa sold a piece of property south of Chisago City (section 30, township 33, range 20) to Carl A. HULT and Louisa on 30 April 1883. It is very likely that some of Louisa's siblings went by the surname JOHNSON. And it is possible that one of Louisa's sisters, Christina HAKANSON / JOHNSON married Isaac HULT / HOLT. This Isaac HULT may have been a brother to the Carl A. HULT mentioned above. However, I have not been able to verify this. I would greatly appreciate any information on these families. Thank you.
