I am doing research on my grandfathers family. The information I have is:
Johan Adolf Hedqvist born 1855 Sundsvall (he was listed as a carpenters/joiners apprentice at this time)
he married
Maria (Kristaina?) Andersson from Langserud (date unknown). They had a child or two while there, and the other children are listed as being born in Alno
some children are
John Albert (my grandfather) born 1893 (moved to New Brunswick, Canada at some point, where he passed in the mid to late 70's)
Tekla Amalia 1884-1971 married an Ericcson
Alma Charlotta 1881-1961 married an Ohlsson
Hilma Maria Feb 2 1880
Albin Halvar 1886-1970
Karl Harald 1888
Anna Linnea 1890-1960 married a Johansson
Axel Henry 1898

I am interested in learning any further information, such as more relatives from that time, the names of the husband, their children, etc.
I have not been able to find much information. Some of the women were divorced and one was widowed. The men I do not have any information, other than one died as an unmarried name.

I have been told that the q in Hedqvist was just a fancy spelling that it was to be Hedkvist. Any information on the history of the name would be greatly appreciate.

Thanking you in advance
