Death: Jul. 13, 1921

Carl was born in a little village Ersnäs near Luleå in the north of Sweden. In 1880 he emigrated to Bisbee, Arizona, but moved in 1901 to Campbell near San Jose, Calif., where he had a fruit farm. His last letter home to Sweden was sent in 1920, then the connection was broken. Lennart Parknäs, Sweden, a grandson to Carl´s sister Amanda, succeeded in 1985 to find Carl´s grave and to trace his descendents.
Carl sent more than 30 letters home to Sweden. Lennart Parknas has published them and a biography of Carl in the book: Några Amerikafarare från Ersnäs och deras brev hem, 2005. The book is in Swedish, you may find it in the Kungliga biblioteket (Royal Library) in Stockholm.
The second wife of Carl, Alice* Manetta Ellen Gray and their grandson Jack Clifford Gray are also buried at Oak Hill Memorial Park.
