BINGO! Finally -- success at last!My great-great grandfather was John Palmquist, b.16 April, 1849 in Smaland,Sweden (I think I also have parish name) His wife was Christina Agusta, not Agusta Christina. Mar:1878.Both died in Kerman,CA. John d.30 July, l932. Christina d.15 Jan 1919. I have the original obits! My g-grandfather was their oldest child, Oscar Ludwig (b.1879 Bernadotte,MN) I know of 10 other siblings. Oscar had 9 children,one of which was Eunice, my grandmother.
