Dear Johansson Family,
I am wondering if you are of the Eva Charlotta Johansson family? My great grandmother came to Evansville, Minnesota, America in May of 1884. She was single and pregnant -rumors were she was pregnant by a royal and sent to her brother Peter Johansson in Fargo, North Dakota. She ended up in Evansville, MN however, and left via Risinge, Sweden, and sailed from Gothenborg. She was born April 25, 1861 in Misterhult Parish, Kalmar, Sweden. Her daughter, Hilda Johannson was born on Oct. 19, 1884 in Evansville. She later dated Aaron Engstrand and had a child, Rena (Nelson) by him, and then the next year married my great grandfather Peter Johnson and delivered Louis Johnson on May 1, 1890. She died three days later. We have been trying to find her family ever since. I am hoping and praying you are part of her family. We have only recently put all of this information together, as we previously did not know where she was from. Please email me with any information you might have regarding my great grandmother. She was a beautiful woman. We have one tin photo of her with a young man and young woman which may have been taken in Sweden.
