John Erickson, born Nov 1859 in Norway, ab immigrant of 1883, married Martha Nelson 14 Apr 1885 in Hayward, Sawyer, Wisconsin. His parents were Erick and Margret Rynoldson. I last found John Erickson living in Chicago at the time of the 1940 US Federal Census. The children of John and Martha were: John M. Erickson b. 1885, Elmer E Erickson b 1889-1956, John M. Erickson b. 1892, Raymond Joseph Erickson b. 1892, Melvin Oliver Erickson 1895-1986, Minnie Constance Erickson b. 1899, Ida Myrtle Erickson 1901-1921, and Mabel Erickson b. abt 1902. Martha NELSON Erickson was born 16 Aug 1863 in Norway. Her mother was Catherine Rogenlandson/Regnelson/Rognaldson and Martha's father was Edwin Nelson/Nilson. (Catherine's father was Rognad Erickson) Martha married John Erickson in 1885 in Hayward, WI and she died in Chicago, IL on 16 Jul 1918. I'd like to find more information on these two families the Nelsons and the Ericksons.
