My great grandfather was Franz Herrman Qvarfot. He was born 10/6/1846 in Nora, Orebro Lan, Sweden. He immigrated to the US about 1870 and married Johanna Mathilda Kalberg - also listed on various documents as Kihlborg, Kelberg, Kalberg) also from Sweden, in 1872 in Cook County, IL. They had 10 children: Frank D.(b. 9/2/1973 in IL), Tilda (b. abt 1875 in IL), Charles (b. 8/1/1877 in WI), Hanna (b. 5/29/1880 WI), Harry (b. 1882 WI), Minnie (b. 1886 WI), William (b. 1/1/1888 WI), Julia (b. 1890 WI), Paul Edwin (b. 1892) and my grandmother, Ruth Elizabeth (b. 1/3/1894). I am having trouble finding out anything on either side of my family. I think I found the arrival date for Johanna Mathilda (listed as Tilda) on the Caledonia arriving 6/23/1868. I cannot find anything on her, not even her death date in Wisconsin. They are listed on the 1880 census in Burnett County, Wisconsin, and lived the rest of their lives, to my knowledge in and around Grantsburg, WI. If anyone has any information on either of these families I would be very grateful. I have one living relative on this side of the family that says her grandfather Quarfoot lived with her family until his death in the 1920's. I have an estimated death year of 1918 for him so this makes no sense. She also states that her grandfather's name was Charles, as was her father, and that also doesn't make sense given her grandfather was named Franz. Maybe a second father in the mix?
