Notes From Guest

  • I can give you the information I know. Not sure if I'm able to get all the birth dates and so on.
  • (Re: Grandparents) I know that my on my dad's side they leave around where I live, right now, in the stock on Uppsala area, a bit north of Uppsala. There is a rumor, however, that that we have our kind of our famous entrepreneur from men men are hundred years ago, who came from Belgium and married [my ancestors] sister. The famous person is Louis de Geer from Belgium. He was famous for making the weapons for the Swedish military and they he was a big guy back in the I mean there's four or 500 years ago now, so it's a very long time ago.
  • My grandmother on my mother's side, a relative to them actually, moved to the States.
  • The elders, it was my parents and it was my grandparents. That said, I have no clue what happened before them. I don't think it was something they meant to do, it just happened to turn out that way. It was nothing they planned.
  • (Re: Oldest ancestor known) That has to be my my granddad on on mother's side, which by the way has the same name and I was probably named after him. My name is Hans. He wasn't spectacularly old, but he did manage to turn eighty.
  • (Re: Ethnicity) No other ethnicity besides the Swedish and that one possible man from Belgium. Once again that is a rumor. He had a big factory (outside of) Uppsala. I have pictures of it. If the rumor is true it started with a German salesman who met the sister of Louis and together they built a family. Other than that I haven't heard anything about any other people than Swedes.
  • (RE: An ancestor you really want to know more about) Yes, that would be my grandmother on my father's side, Berta, because she died so young. All I remember of her is that she had very long share, and that was not very common. And, that she was very, very kind. So it would be nice to know more about her because I know nothing really.

Interesting Finds

List interesting finds to share with the guest at the end of the week
  1. Hasse's grandmother Anna Lovisa Lindblom (1901-1973) had two brothers, Johan Valfrid and Ernst Artur, who died of the Spanish flu in the first week of October 1918. Johan's wife Hulda Margreta died the day before he did. They had been married less than four months. Ernst was only 17 years old.
  2. 6th-great-grandfather (through Berta Viola's foster parents) Nils Wall (abt.1722-1771) was a lawyer & District Court Justice in Uppsala, beginning in the 1750s. He corresponded with Carl Linnaeus, & is shown as having traveled to Stockholm at one point with Olof Celsius (1670-1756).
  3. Lars Edin (abt.1698-bef.1748), the 7th great-grandfather of Hasse, was a pastor in Älvkarleby parish, and then in Tierp parish. He married Sara Margareta Filmera in 1720 in Viksta, Uppsala. He died at about fifty years old.
  4. Olof (Ersson) Blomberg (1723-1782), Hasse's 5th great-grandfather, enlisted as a soldier in 1743 an served until 1780 at the Bålsta rote. He was part of the Hundra Härads Kompani of the Upplands Regemente. As a soldier he took the Blomberg surname. He married twice and had two children. Olof died at the age of fifty-nine.
  5. Anders Olsson (1798-1861), Hasse's 3rd great-grandfather, was born in 1798 in Öfver-Turing, Sweden. A farmer by trade, he married at the age of twenty-seven and had five children, three sons and two daughters. One of the sons lived less than a day, the other two died in their twenties by drowning. Anders lived to the age of sixty-two, survived only by his wife and two married daughters. Maria Nilsdotter (1801-), his wife, was listed as crippled. She died after 1861 in Öfver-Turing.
  6. Påvel Henriksson (abt.1614-1689), Hasse's 9th great-grandfather, is one of the oldest ancestors in his branches. Pavel was born in 1614 in Havero, his father born about 1589. Pavel married Margareta Larsdotter and lived to the age of seventy-five.
  7. Marget Jönsdotter (1806-) was Hasse's 3rd great-grandmother. She was interesting to the US researchers as we weren't used to looking for fines. Margret was unmarried when her first child was born in 1836. She married Erik Olsson three months later, bringing us to believe that he was the father of her daughter. Marget and Erik had five more children together. No fines were listed for support of the first child.
  8. Daniel Persson (1535-aft.1604), another older ancestor on Hasse's branches, was a farmer and an Alderman, as was his son Tobias. Daniel was Hasse's 10th great-grandfather and was born about 1535 in Torrböle. Daniel's father, Per Grels Tomasson (abt.1510-aft.1571), was born about 1510 in Gräsmyr, and was a farmer by trade.
  9. Johan Erik Morberg (1829-1887), Hasse's 3rd cousin, was a steam ship captain. There is an ad for one of his trips on his profile.
  10. Jons Byberg (abt.1771-1842), Hasse's 4th great-grandfather, was born and named Jons Olofsson. We learned about the renaming of soldiers once enlisted, and why he became Jons Byberg. FamilySearch has an awesome page explaining the name changes for soldiers.
  11. Great-grandmother Ida Augusta Andersson had a son Carl Johan Georg Andersson when she was 22. The baby was placed with a foster family, and Ida went on to marry and foster two children, including Hasse's grandmother Berta Viola Wall. Then when Carl was 15, he REUNITED with Ida and her family and lived with them. I (Karen) found Carl's birth index and wondered where he went, and Eric Stamper carefully tracked him down in household records.
  12. Pehr Pehrsson (1778-1813) was an inn-keeper in a Gästgiveri (inn) called Åshusby. Here is a photo of the inn.
  13. Daniel Matton (1716-1790), Hasse's 6th great-grandfather, was descended from Phillippe Maton (who died in the early 1600s). Phillippe's son Jean Maton, a locksmith, was the father of the preacher Jean Mathon (1606-1653). Jean Mathon married a niece of Louis de Geer. The preacher was a father to Bartholomeus, who was the father of Daniel Mathon (died 1688). Daniel Mathon (d 1688) was the father of Daniel Mathon (born 1687, died 1721).
  14. Three siblings: Katarina Juliana (Månsdotter) Lindblom, Ingrid Fredrika Månsdotter, and Jonas Månsson (1867-) all had twins. Hasse's grandmother [[Lindblom-183|Anna Lovisa Lindblom (1901-1973)] was a twin born to Katarina Juliana. Ingrid Fredrika had two sets of twins three years apart.
  15. Sam Vick's brother W. Henry Vick studied at Lincoln University in Missouri and Shaw University in his native North Carolina (both historically Black universities), then passed the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy exam in 1897. In September he led a class of 44 at the New Jersey board exam, and was the only Black pharmacist in the group. His obituary stated he was the first Black pharmacist licensed in New Jersey.
