This is the families of my Grandparents Anders (Andrew)Erickson, Amanda Carlson,Johannes Gunnarson and Matilda Johnson Martinson.Their ancestors and descendants. They settled in Wright Co MN. Andrew came from Venjan, Kopparbergsland (Now Dalarna)Sweden.About 70 miles west of Rättvik. His brother Olof also came to USA, but I can't verify that any of the Olof Erickson I have found is him. Amanda was born in Ukna, Kalmar land(now Småland)Southeast of Linköping. Both her parents were born in Østergötand, together with Amanda's two sisters they moved here and settled in Marysville township, Wright Co. MN.
Johannes Gunnarson and his two brothers came here from Magra, Elvsborg, Sweden. About 50-60 miles Northeast of Gotenberg. Matilda came here with her parents and some siblings. She was born in Lekvattnet,Värmland just a few miles from the Norwegian boarder.The area is called Finnskogen which translates to the forest of the Finns. Her father Mårten Johansen changed his name to Mårten Johansson, Martin Johnson, John Martinson and at last to Martin Johnson.
Any old stories and pictures would be greatly appreciated. Also any correction would be appreciated.
