Gustof Bjorkander was born June 1, 1945 in Hassle, Sweden to Johannes and Inga Bjorkander. He came with a group of Swedes to Florida to work in the citrus industry in Sanford after being promised farm land if he would work there for two years. He returned to Sweden between 1889-1891, but then returned to live in Sanford, Apopka, and Lockhart, Florida. He died March 7, 1922.
Some of Gustof's siblings came to America. They were Christina Carolina Bjorkander (Parsons), Augusta Bjorkander, Albertina Bjorkander (Anderson), Claes Wilhelm Bjorkander ("Charles W. Burke"), and Anna Lovisa Bjorkander (Carlson). His niece was Marie Louise Parsons ( Wade) of Green Cove Springs, Florida.
