Re: Margreta Erickson - Louis Norberg
Hello again. I have found additional information since posting my last message. Olaf Erickson, Margreta's father, came to live in Illinois around 1862-1863. Olaf passed way April 02, 1880 in Big Spring Township, Shelby County, Illinois. He was buried in Swedish Cemetery, also in Big Spring Township.
One of Olaf's granddaughters[?], Bertha, marrried a man with the last name of Sheehan. The old correspondence I happened to come across  shows her living on Lee Street, Oakland California. Bertha talked about her grandson being in the hospital, she didn't mention his name.
In addition, Julia, Margreta's mother was the mother of seven children. Julia was 70 years old at the time of the 1900 census. Five of the seven were alive at that time.
All this still seems like the needle in the haystack. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
