Swan OLSON was b. c. 1870 in Sweden.He settled in Minneapolis, Hennepin Co., MN.He married Lydia and had 3 sons:Roger L. b. c. 1909; Peter H., b. c. 1910; Lester S. b. April 1919.
I believe his wife was Georgette Lydia PETERSON (Lydia in the 1920 census), my grandmother, who was the daughter of Swedish immigrants who lived in Stillwater, Washington Co., MN.Lydia's sonLester was b. April 5, 1919 in Minneapolis.
Lydia married, 2nd, John Earl RIBLING (RIBBLING) and lived in Beardstown, Cass Co., IL.
Lester was my father.All he knew about his Mother is that she had been married to a man named OLSON who had two other sons, Roger and "Bud".
I would like to know more about my Grandmother and her family but it seems unlikely I will ever know.Her surname, PETERSON, is very common.I do not know who her parents were.I found the OLSONs in census records and they seem to match what my father told me.My father met Swan Olson only once for a few minutes.He received greeting cards from Roger and Peter when he was a child but he did not save them.
If you have information about this family please reply!Thank you!
