My g-g-g-grandfather was a shoemaker named Carl Anders LINDQVIST, born 1811-04-07 in Stjärnorp, Östergötland län, Sweden.He was married in 1835-11-22 to Stina Maja PERSDOTTER, born 1815-02-10 in Brunneby, Östergötland län, Sweden.
Children: Carl Peter Oscar LINDQVIST born 1836-11-21 in Brunneby, Östergötland län, Sweden. Adolf Fredrik LINDQVIST, my g-g-grandfather, was born 1841-12-16 in Brunneby, Östergötland län, Sweden. August Leonard LINDQVIST born 1849-11-29 in Västra Stenby, Östergötland län, Sweden.
Adolf Fredrik and his brother Carl Peter Oscar were born at Anderstorp at Laggarhem farm, and August Leonard was born at Långtorp farm in Västra Stenby.
I am interested in hearing about any of the LINDQVIST and/or PERSDOTTER families in Östergötland län, Sweden.We still have some cousins from this family living in Sweden.
