Not much is known other than my great grandparents came over from Sweden. Here's a quick story of them.
He came over looking for work. Sent for his fiance' and she refused. Her sister came instead and married him. They had 10 kids, most of whom I dont remember or never met. My grandmother was the ninth child, born the ninth day of the ninth month, so they named her Nina (pronounced: nine + a, not kneea).
