I am looking for information on my great grandfather, Alexander Strom.He was born in Finland 10/25/1865,He came to the United States at some point.Oral family history states he was in the midwest somewhere and came to North Carolina with a friend and stayed here.
Alexander married Hester Netherton on 4/20/1889.They had four children: Otto H. Strom b. 2/17/1893 Flora Strom b. 7/31/1895 Hubert A. Strom b. 3/2/1897 William Strom b. 12/22/1898
Alexander died on 2/25/1899 and is buried in Marshall, North Carolina at Dry Pond Cemetery.
I cannot find any information about Alexander since I don't know where he was prior to the 1890 census.
Maybe he had a brother or father named Otto since his first son was named Otto.Can anyone provide additional information to help me through this brick wall?
