Hello Elizabeth, I just read your Sep 2005 posting and wished to note several time frame similiarities with your post and my wife's family. Her grandmother, Anna Stina Svensson was b. Jun 1851 in Langjum parish (our records indicate and area called Jakobsgarden, which is unknown to us). She is the eldest dau of Sven Svensson and Anna Cajsa Pehrsdotter; other children include Lotta (b. Dec 17, 1856); Inga Cajsa (b. Jan 3. 1859); Emma Lovisa (b. Mar 16, 1861) and a son Johan August (b. Jan 19, 1864, d. Mar 28, 1865). Anna came to America in 1885 settling "as you say" on a patch of land near Doland, South Dakota after marrying William Lindstrand of Goteborg.
Sven, son of Sven Stadig and Stina Pehrsdotter, was b. Langjum parish, in area of Lassagarden, Vassby.
