My ancestors in Sweden, Lena Cathrina Hansdotter and Samuel Pettersson had 7 children emmigrate to America during the period 1852 through 1868.They were Johan Petter born June 9, 1835, Gustaf Adolf born June 6, 1839, Emilia Charlotta born March 24, 1841, Helena Sophia born February 21, 1845, Stina Greta born May 22, 1847, Simon Fredrik born October 28, 1849 and Anna Albertina born March 7, 1852. It seems that due to the age of Johan Petter during his voyage to America, he was called Young, which was a name he kept. The other siblings took this name, too. In Sweden, they would have had last names, Samuelsson or Samuelsdotter. I have researched the ancestors in Sweden, and now I am trying to locate the descendants. I have determined that Johan Petter (known as John Peter Young) ended up in Warren Co. IL. Helena Sophia (Helen Nelson)ended up in Sedgwick Co., KS. I am at a loss however, what happened to Gustaf Adolf, Emilia Charlotta, Stina Greta, Simon Fredrik and Anna Albertina. It seems that they all changed their name or assumed another one. For example, I think that Gustaf Adolf changed his name to Gustaf Edward. I think that Stina Greta changed her name to Christina (Christina Anderson)and stayed in Warren Co, IL. I think that Simon Fedrik became Frederik, and moved to Pasadena, CA. I think that Anna Albertina became Anna G Fitts and ended up in Santa Clara, CA. The 1900 Census indicated that Anna G Fitts lived with a daughter named Mary A Doud. Frederick lived with his adopted mother, Mary F. Smith. I don't have any information regarding any of the descendants of these Swedish siblings. Can you help me? I am alos looking for Berg (Borg & Burg) descendants to Karl Henry Berg born January 19, 1866, Johan Edvard , born January 12, 1868 and Gustaf Fredrik, born October 3, 1870. These three brothers are 1st cousins to the Youngs!
