Birth: 1861, Sweden
Death: Sep. 8, 1907
Pipestone County
Minnesota, USA

Lars 22 years went from Gothenburg with his brother Johan 16 years plus a Carl Bergendahl 38 years, Årsunda, Sweden to New York via Liverpool May 12, 1881. The boat was named Marsdin, built in Hull, England. Destination was Marquette, Michigan. This town lies on Lake Michigan not far from the Minnesota border. Lars moved then to Pipestone, Minnesota. He married a Christina, had six children of which one was most probably dead from birth. Brother Anders emigrated March 29, 1889 from Gothenburg. He went with the boat "City of Paris" from Liverpool 3 April with the arrival in NY 11 April. This was the first trip "C of Paris" and was the fastest. C o P held a "Blue Ribbon" on several occasions ie the fastest across the Atlantic. Anders had destination Pipestone so that was how I found Lars. Anders moved later on, died in Seattle, Washington, married to Lottie. Johan is back in Sweden in the population register in 1900, but then he disappears. Not dead in Sweden.

Contact me if above is of any interest, I got more from this family back to 1683

Lars/Johan and Anders was my great grandfathers brothers
