The hopeful sister to Lovisa, Catharine Wilhelmina and family also settled there I believe.


The 1920 Maine Census in Stockholm, Aroostook shows John F Bergqvist and wife Katharina W Bergqvist:

On Ancestry there is a record for a John Frederick Bergqvist in the "Massachusetts, State and Federal Naturalization Records, 1798-1950".
If this is your Jan then it will probably show where he is from etc.

Me again  :)

Better than the immigration index John Frederick Bergqvist applied for a passport in 1922 to go to Sweden to visit siblings and also to Denmark and British Isles for travel.  That document states he was naturalized in Maine in 1890 and confirms his father was Anders Berg.

Interesting that one sisters family changed from Berg to Berqvist and one changed from Persson/Persdotter/Peterson to Berggren.  Perhaps others have also made name changes.  Not sure if the Berg root name is significant or coincidental in these two cases.

I would like to try to expand some on the 1847 household of Anders Andersson and Stina Catr Persdotter that you provided the link to the image of.  I have not found marriages yet for any of the other girls besides Lovisa and Catr Wilhelmina.   Not sure how impossible it would be to try to track deaths in Sweden for Anders and his wife Stina or marriages in Sweden for Maja Stina b 1830, Anna b 1841, or Johanna b 1846.  (I am assuming I am reading this handwriting correctly!) 

It looks like Maja Stina Andersdotter left for North America in 1901 from Kopparberg.  She was a widow.

Best wishes
Jean

Great to know he is the correct John Frederick.

Wow that is a high mortality rate.  So based on that it looks like we are only left looking for Anna b. 1841 to find the 4 living.  I am not sure what her middle name is on the 1847 household schedule.  Looks like La - - n ??  Or I suppose by 1855 Anna could be dead and there is one other child out of the household by 1847 still living in 1855.
