Larson/Palmquist siblings - Sven August, Nils Johan, Anna Lovisa

Larson/Palmquist siblings - Sven August, Nils Johan, Anna Lovisa

Posted: 1091991586000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Palmquist
I am related to Anna Lovisa Palmquist (birth surname was Larson but changed in America) born 12-2-1832 in Hvena, Kalmar, Smaland, Gotaland, Sweden who married Olof August Olson (birth surname was Birgerson but changed in America) from Christdala, Sweden around 1870/1871 in Kansas. Their children were Hilda Elizabeth and Henry Nathaniel. They lived in Lindsborg, McPherson County, Kansas. All are buried at Elmwood Cemetery.

Nils Johan Palmquist born 3-25-1825 in Sweden was Anna's brother and later lived with Anna in Kansas after his wife Brita Andersdotter died. Nils was a farmer. I only know of a son named Charley/Charles/Carl August. They lived in McPherson County, Kansas. All are buried at Elmwood Cemetery.

Sven August Palmquist born approximately 1821/1822 in Sweden married an Ann Sophia Unknown (b.1827/28). Sven was a tailor. Children included Emma (b.1849/50), Augusta M. (b.1851/52), Sven Johan Edward (b.1855/56), Almond (b.1858/59), Ida C. (b.1864/65) and William Nathanael (b.1867/68). Almond, Ida, and William were born in Illinois. This family was in Richland Grove (now called Cable), Mercer County, Illinois during the 1860 US Federal Census. In 1870, they were in Sharps Creek, McPherson County, Kansas and Sven's wife is not listed. In 1880, they were in Union, McPherson County, Kansas and Sven is re-married to a Lisa.

I am trying to find the parents of Anna, Nils and Sven. I am guessing father's name was Lars since they originally went by Larson instead of Palmquist. On Anna's death certificate it states that her mother's name was Lovisa.

Any information or assistance is greatly appreciated! Thanks, Linda
