Rose Johnson's Family Tree

Updated July 5, 2011

Check the picture section for new additions.

I am presently researching several family trees. If you have information or need additional information for one of these trees please contact me.

JOHNSON This line is from Norway and can be traced to Bent Andersson. His son is Aernt Bentson. Aernts son is Bent Aerntson. Bent's son is John Bentson. John's son is Arent or Arnt Johnson who arrived with his parents and siblings in Viroqua, Wisconsin some time in 1875. I can date this line back to about 1715. Also ELLEFSON, EVERSON, HALVERSON

KOUGL This line is from Lhota, Bohemia to Wisconsin. I can date it back to 1810 with Martin Kougl and Barbara Stadnik. Relations in this line include PECHA. I will be traveling to Prague, Czech Republic in March 2002 and hope to find more information on this branch.

MIHEL This line is from Drslavic, Bohemia to Racine, Wisconsin. I can date it back to 1820 with Francis Mihla and Justine Javorova. I have very little information on this line.

PHILLIPS This line is from Anglesey, Wales to Wisconsin. I can date it back to 1820 with James T. Phillips and Mary Howell.

Please check my list of names or outlines for your name or the name of someone you have in your tree. I would enjoy sharing information.
