According to family lore, August Swanson (1862-1926) was my Grandfather John (Yohan) Swanson's half brother. According to census records August arrived in Canton, Fulton County, Illinois between 1880 and 1882. In the Gothenburg Passenger List I found an August Sevenson leaving for Hull England 27 Aug 1880. It reports he was born in Ryda Starsborgs (Starberga) läns. I have not been able to find any other information. Can anyone help?
Thanks for trying
Possible helpful information: It is believed that August was born 21 Sep 1862 to Magnus Svensson (or Sven Magnusson) and Sara Carlsdotter or possibly Kjalsdotter.
