There were five sons and three daughters in the WENBERG family. The name was taken when they immigrated. Their parents were Andrew JOHNSON, who died in Sweden, and Britta HESSLEHOLMER, the dau. of Lars HESSLEHOLMER. Ida was the one daughter that immigrated, m. Charles E. SWERBERG. The sons and their mother took the name WENBERG. The brothers names were John (may have returned to Sweden, while visiting between the two countries), Alfred, Peter, Frank, and Louis. In his bio, Alfred was born 1858 near Boros Sweden.
Louis was my Grt-gdfa. He married Charlotte (Lottie) SODERLAND, also an immigrant. The family mostly settled in Joliet IL, but descendants have spread out. In particular, I am trying to locate, if they exist, the descendants of Louis' son, Fritz born 1885 in IL. His name may have been A.F. or F.A. for Albert and/or Frederick. He disappeared around WW1. Louis and Lottie's children were Fritz, Laura, Elizabeth, and Elmer O.(my grandfather). Neither Elizabeth or Laura married.
I am also looking for the the descendants of Cuyler and Elma WENBERG. They would be my Grandfather's cousins.Peter died in 1884 leaving two children. Based on the information I have about the other brothers, they are probably his children and were raised by their Grandmother, Britta WENBERG.
