What I want to know is when & where Hulda/Hilda was born... possibly Hogsby, Kalmar. I have been unable to find birth records for her 3 children born in IL probably in or around Chicago:Chester Theodore 25 Nov 1898, Arthur Emanuel 29 Jul 1900, and Helga Amelia 29 Aug 1902... birth dates are from their MN death records. In addition to the 6 maiden names that I listed in response to Kathleen, I know that Hulda moved to MN abt 1903, gave birth to my father-Hilding A on 21 Jul 1904, a baby that died, & Sigfrid Gunnar on 23 Feb 1909.1st husband- John Isak Johnson died in 1908. Hulda remarried John A Johnson in Jan, 1910 & had her 7th child- Reuben 5 Aug 1914. She died 16 Apr 1918.
