My maternal line comes from Aldersons originating in Sweden.Everyone else I encounter is from the well-documented English lines--never any Swedes among us.My gfather was a John David Alderson (b. 1893) of Luzerne County, PA who owned and operated an anthracite coal mine prior to The Great Depression.His father was August Alderson (b. 1862) who we believe immigrated alone about 1880.He died young in a work accident (d. 11 May 1898) and is buried in Pine Hill Cemetery, Shickshinny, PA.August's wife was a Hannah Priscilla Lindsay from Lancaster and Carbon Counties, PA. They had two sons, John and Frederick, and two daughters, Elizabeth and Agneta.
Anyone here connected to the Swedish Aldersons or have knowledge of the line?
