Surnames: Ljungstrom, Youngstrom, Young
My great grandfather was Frank Gustav Young. His last name was originally Youngstrom, but it was probably Ljungstrom. All I know is that he was born in Sweden supposedly on Feb 29, 1860; emigrated supposedly to the US in 1883; and was in Kalama Washington by 1886, when he married Laura (Olava) Anderson and applied for citizenship. Their children were named Frank Andrew, Herbert, Philip, Lawrence, Martin, Carl, Laura, and Francis. His death certificate says father's name was Gustave Youngstrom and mother's name was Mathilda Andersen.
I have no idea where in Sweden he was from; or where he was from 1883 to 1886; or if he had other family here. Counldn't find him on passenger records. I'm not even sure that the information reported on his death certificate was correct.
Does this ring a bell or fit in with anyone else's Ljungstroms?
Thank you,
Randi Petrone

I am looking for a Gustave Youngstrom who was in Chicago, IL in the 1920 census. He had a child named "Knute" b. 11/15/1892 in Illinois. In the 1930 census Knute shows up in Chicago with his wife "Teckla" and mother "Matilda". Since you mentioned a Matilda and a Gustave, thought I would throw this out to you and perhaps we can compare notes. I know that Teckla and Knute were buried in the Rosehill Cemetery in Chicago, but haven't been able to get down there to see their graves yet. Hoping his mother (who was a widow in the 1930 census) will be buried there.
