Looking for connections on Jon/John August Petterson in Sweden
I am looking for relatives of my g-grandfather Jon A Petterson born feb 6th 1879 Somewhere in Sweden. he came to the us and what I was told was a salior, married Frances Parker Oct 27th 1907. They had four children,
Anna elizabeth frances(b.1908 d.1909) George John Phipps(b.1910 d.1983,my grandfather) William Edward Sprague(b.1912 d.?) Alden Charles Parker(b.1913 d.1998?).
I have realized that each one of the children carry a name of another relative in it, which has me wondering if my g-grandfathers name was really jon/john phipps august or august phipps not sure. but it is an idea.
I was told that my g grandmother would receive letters from his sister but was never told from where and she could not read swedish.
he disappeared after joining a harvest crew in the midwest. If anyone can help me with this mystery I would really appreciate it. I have run into road blocks.
you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org thanks alot for any help in advance. Debbie
