I wanted to pass on the info I have received so far, on Jonas A. Soderlund....in the hope of connecting some of it to my Jonas Abraham Soderlund, brother of my gggrandfather:
I discovered the following information from Swedish records from Forsa parish.: Jonas Abraham Söderlund emigrated 1872 to US.
Info from the 1900 Kansas census: John A. Soderlund born 4/1846 in Sweden, married 24 years, entered US in 1871. Carin wife, born 8/1846, entered US in 1870. Five children listed.
There is a Jonas Söderlund listed on the Swedish emmigrant CD..information I received from a volunteer on Sweden rootsweb list. Jonas Söderlund Age: 26 Parish: Häsejö Lan: Y Place of departure: Göteborg Date of Departure: 1871 08 18 Destination: Binghampton Contratc #: 5:559:2954 The volunteer could not locate any possible info on a wife Karin or children.This was the only Jonas Söderlund listed. Other volunteers found Johan Söderlunds.
