I am helping a woman in Sweden to find out what happened to her ancestor's.
Peter Matson b. 26 sept 1832 left Sweden - via Copenhagen - to US with his three eldest children 24 mar 1880. I have found them in the Danish archive that they left for Liverpool at 3 apr 1880 with destination St Paul MN. The father came back to Sweden alone and died here. In the estate inventory after him in 1910 it is not a word about the children only the once that he left with his wife in Sweden. What happened with them?
August Mattson (or Peterson) b. 17 Oct 1858
Bertha Mattson (or Peterson) b. 15 Jan 1861
Carl Johan Mattson (or Peterson) b. 19 Jul 1863
