I have a good amount of info on the Montelius line. I inherited an old suitcase which belonged to Mary Rebecca Montelius, daughter of John Augustus and Kate Montelius. She started researching this line back in 1907. It's been great fun to piece together all her info. Would like to share and compare notes with you. Keep in touch,
