I'm trying to find this gentleman in Sweden.  US records indicate his birth to be 1858.  He married Johanna Christina Persson who was born in 1857.  They moved to Nebraska, USA where in 1888 they had a daughter Lydia Otilia Swanson.  I just don't know anymore.  Can you help me find them?

married to Johanna Maria Nilsdotter (Nilsdaughter) born 1857 in Tolg, Kronoberg County.

Hi,
 
At findagrave.com there is a Swen A Swanson with a Johanna C Swanson as well that might be of interest. According to the tombstone
Swan was born March 15 in 1845 and died May 31 in 1927. Johanna C was born May 22 1856 and died on February 7 in 1928.  Among the listed children is a Lydia born 1888 who dies in 1957. There is also an obutuary added to Lydia.  
 
Here is the link: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=27672673
 
If that is the right persons the dates might help to trace him.
 
I was also looking at US census 1910 from Fairview, Merced, California which seems to match with whats at findagrave.com above.

Hi!
When I saw what Linda found, it is impossible that it is the right family I suggested earlier. Pity that you don´t know about the place in Sweden they came from.

Thank you both so much.  So it would seem that he was born 15 Mar 1845 in Kalmar län.  His father was Sven P. Swanson and mother Greta Leta Nelson - they also came to the US.  However, I can't find where in Kalmar they came from.  Any ideas?

I got some help from a Bror Persson and I think I have found Sven Anders Svenssons grandfather in Södra Vi in Kalmar County. Region of Småland.

Household examination roll for Södra Vi AI:6 (1826-1832) page 62 Under Ramsefall

 
The farmer Sven Jonsson born 1791.03.23 in Södra Vi, Kalmar county
1824.12.01 married in Södra Vi with attest nr 21 to
Carin Svensdotter born 1804.01.12 in Djursdala.
 
I have found those children so far:
 
Son: Sven Petter    born 1825.07.17 in Södra Vi
Son. ......Magnus   born 1826.12.22    
Dtr: Carolina       born 1828.04.03    
Son: Jonas          born 1830.09.11    
Son: Carl Johan     born 131.12.18        died 1832.05.05 in Södra Vi
Son: Carl Johan     born 1833.05.31    
Dtr: Lisa Greta     born 1836.03.27      
 
The family moves around a little bit
 
In the Houshold examination roll for Södra Vi AI:8 (1832-1838) page 63 the family lives  At nr 2 Ramsefalls Ägor on Torp (croft) Drögshult.
 
You can see that the Son Sven Petter Svensson moves ti Ringhult, Södra Vi 1841 and according to The Household Examination Roll för Södra Vi, AI:10 (1837-1845) page 21 he moves 1842 to Torp
Björnö, Näfstad, Södra Vi.
 
He moves again in 1843 to a place I was unable to read. Have put in a question in hope that someone lokal person in Södra Vi is able to see whats the name of the place is. It is possible that he got married there and that Sven Anders Svensson born 1845 is born there too. We only have to wait and see. Maybe even someone how reads this can help us with the name of the place. I live in Stockholm so I am not able to guess about places in Småland.
Keep your fingers crossed and let us hope I am on the right way.
Best wishes
Hans

Me again.
Sorry for the misspelling. It should be even someone who reads this
 
I got this from Bror Persson: According to Emigranten Populär Sven Anders Svensson and family left Copenhagen 8 th og July 1869 Destination Chicago.
 
He have read about Swan Anders Swanson on Ancestry.com  There you can find diffrent Family trees. Some says he was born 15 march 1845 in Kalmar County, Sweden. Some says he was i the USA already in 1871 and that he got married that year in Des Moines, Polk, Iowa and again other trees says he came to USA 1869.
One tree says that his parents was Swen P. Swanson born 1825 samt Grata Leta Nelson
It should be in Swedish Sven Svensson och Greta Lena Nilsdotter. According to same tree the fader
Sven P.Svensson lived in Des Moines, Iowa 1895.

According to Södra Vi Houshold examination roll  AI:10 (1837-1845) page 129 Sven Petter Svensson moves from Björnö, Näfstad Property 1843 to Perstorp, Näfstads Property and next year 1844 he moves from Perstorp, Näfstads Property to Långnäs I don´t know yet but I think we still are in Södra Vi Parish. I will return when I know more.

He moves to Kåreda, södra Vi in 1846 and then to Horn parish in Östergötlands län 1847. This man got married in Wäsby, Horn, Östergötland County 1847.07.20 to Christina Sophia Andersdotter. He works on a farm as a Farm foreman.
In an another church book his wife is Called Anna Sophia Andersdotter. Their first child was born  1847 in Wäsby, Horn 1847.09.24 and was called Anders Petter their second child was born in Grytvik, Horn in 1849.08.21 and was called Carl August.
Unfortunately it was a fire in the curch in 1851 and a large part of the churchbooks was lost. It seams as this Sven Petter Svensson moved again between 1849-1851, but the moving-in books are lost for just that period.
I guess it is hard to know if this Sven P. Svensson is your man. He had no son called Sven Anders who was born 1845.  
The name of his wife doesent fit either. But it was a nice try  
Best wishes
Hans

Hi Scott, there is a Sven Anders Viktor Svensson on the Emibas CD who emigrated in 1869, born in Kalmar Län, and his birth date is just one day off of the date from the tombstone.
 
Post 322146
Svensson, Sven Anders Viktor
Dräng (unmarried man)
b. 3/14/1845 in Misterhult, Kalmar län (Småland)
Emigrated 6/25/1869
from Simpevarp, Misterhult, Kalmar län (Småland) to Nordamerika
Source: Household Examination Roll, p. 74
Emibas migration file ID: Misterhult H 1869 074
 
His father was Sven Peter Svensson (born 1720 in Misterhult) and his mother was Greta Lisa Nilsdotter (born 9 Jan 1722 in Misterhult) (Source: Misterhult AI:8c (1861-1869) Bild 81 / sid 74) but they never came to the US.  Lisa Greta died 4 Dec 1901 in Misterhult and Sven Peter died there as well 3 Oct 1908.
 
Misterhult AI:10b (1869-1876) Bild 57 / sid 54
Misterhult AI:12b (1876-1882) Bild 202 / sid 198 (moved here from page 68, 1876)
Misterhult AI:13b (1882-1887) Bild 201 / sid 190
Misterhult AI:15b (1887-1893) Bild 505 / sid 498
Misterhult AI:17b (1893-1899) Bild 522 / sid 1214
Misterhult AIIa:1b (1899-1908) Bild 340 / sid 647
Misterhult AIIa:3b (1908-1916) Bild 563 / sid 1130
 
So this sounds like it could be your man unless you're certain that his parents emigrated to the US.

I am not certain that his parents immigrated.  I find other's research says that his father died in the US, but I'm not at all certain.  I have reached out to the other's who have that information on their ancestry.com family trees.  Thank you so much!
