Does anyone have access to old old church records for Ahlsborg Lutheran Church in Spink Township?
My ancestors lived in Spink and attended this church. Their names were: John Hammarstrom/Hammerstrom (1822 Sweden), wife Mary (1835 Sweden), Children Ludvig (1863 Sweden), Mathilda (1864 Sweden), William (1865 Sweden), Arvid, (1870 Iowa) Anna (1872 Iowa), John (1874 Union Co. Dakota Territory) and Charles (1876 Union Co. This family lived in the area in the 1870-1890's. Mathilda was confirmed in this church in 1879. She married Fred Sater (Satter) in 1890. I've seen the name misspelled several times (ex. Hammonston, Hamnastron) The name later evolved into this spelling: Hammelstrom/Hamelstrom. Ludvig (Lewis), Anna, John Jr. Charles and Mary are all buried in Sioux Fall. Still haven't found John Senior.
