I am trying to find any information on a Swedish immigrant family to Bluff,Hamilton Co.I would really like to find the marriage of KARL (CHARLES) OSTERMAN, probably to MARY; ca 1881, possibly in Hamilton Co.
Charles was born KARL ÖSTERMAN 1846 near Halmstad, Sweden.He immigrated to US in 1871-72.He is in 1880 Hamilton Co. census, unmarried.By 1900, 1910, and 1920 he is married and in all censuses;wife MARY, also born in Sweden Aug. 1852, and immigrated 1873.
Their four children:EDNA J. OSTERMAN (1886),mar. Edward Pettersson; ESTHER B. (1887), mar. Theodor Larson and/or Carl Johnson ;ARTHUR H. (1889);and CHARLES W. (1890), mar. Selma.
I would like to make contact with any descendents of this family.Karl Osterman was brother to my great-grandfather, Aaron Osterman, of Tewksbury, Massachusetts.
