found a possible starting place... finally!!!
It's been a loooooooooooooong while since I've posted here but I hoping it'll turn out to be worth it. I recently found a Rothfeldt marriage in Hurva Parish, Skane, Sweden, on 12 July 1828 between Matts Andersson Rothfeldt (Tennant) and Eva Maria Thomasdotter. It may very well turn out to be our Oscar's parents, Uncle, cousin, brother, who knows. I will keep everyone informed as to any more info I may find.
OOOOOHHHHH!!!! Almost forgot... I have been contacted by a possible "cousin" of ours in Sweden. His last name is Rodfeldt (possible variation of Rothfeldt). I will also keep you informed as to any progress with this.
Take care all,
