Violet Jacobsen was born in Pennsylvania in 1903 to Anton and Julia (Julia Agnes Kalgreen) Jacobsen. They later moved to Marion County Illinois per the 1910 Census. Violet had two sisters: Alvira and Alfrieda.
Anton Jacobsen came from Sweden to America in 1891 and was naturalized shortly after(don't know the exact year). Anton's father was Carl Jacobsen.
Julia Agnes Kalgreen Jacobsen was 28 in 1910. I have information that her father was Swedish and mother was from North Dakota. However, my mother had once told me that Julia was full blooded Cherokee.
I am trying to trace both the Swedish and Cherokee roots but have come to a stand still. The above information is the latest I have and it is as far as I can seem to get. Any help would be greatfully appreciated!
