I am looking for information on the Palmquist family of Barron County, Wisconsin.Peter Palmquist came from Sweden about 1883.He married Anna Margaret ? (I don't have her last name).Peter was born in Sweden as were both of his parents. Anna was born in Norway as were both of her parents.They settled in Clinton Township of Barron County. They had the following children: Henry M. Palmquist b. 1886 Oscar F. Palmquist b. 1887 Anton J. Palmquist b. 1889 Fred J. Palmquist b. 1891 Amanda L. Palmquist b. 1893 andEster E. Palmquist b. 1895
I descend from their son Oscar.He married Minnie Olivia Hanson, daughter of Clara Hanson and Hans Rudd and granddaughter of Christ Hanson and his wife Olivia. They also lived in Clinton Twp of Barron County, WI.They had the following children: Harold Palmquist b. 1913 Arthur L. Palmquist b. 1915 Mildred Palmquist b. 1919 Fredrick Palmquist b. 1930 andRobert Palmquist b. 1936
I descend from Arthur Palmquist.
I understand that the name was changed from Norbeck to Palmquist prior to coming to America.
Any information on the parentage, siblings etc for Peter or Anna would be greatly appreciated.I would also appreciate any info on their descendants...I only have a bit of info on my own line.
Does anyone know where in Sweden they came from?
Any info at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Cherie Brown
