Looking for decendents of family that stayed in Sweden

Posted: 1342374379000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Nilsson, Andersson, Pettersson
Would like to find the decendents of:
Nils Peter Petersson b. 9 Feb 1829 in Sweden he married before 1851 in Sweden
Anna Katharina Petersdotter b. 7 July 1824 in Mardeklev, Alvsborg, Sweden.
They had six Children
1. Johan Aaron Nilsson b 1851
2. Anders Peter Nilsson b.1853
3. Johanna Christina Nilssdotter b. 3 Oct 1856 m. Johan Petter Andersson 10 Dec 1876 in Slattakra, Halland, Sweden
4. Bengt Nilsson b. 1858
5. Carl Gustaf Nilsson b. 1858
6. August Nilsson b. 1871

All the Children were born in Slattakra. Nils, Anna, Johanna, and Johan Petter all immigrated to America. Nils came first in 1879. He came to a place called Steirling Run, Pennsylvania. In 1882 Anna and her son-in-law Johan Petter Andersson came. And the following year Johanna and three young sons came, also to Stierling Run, PA. They all eventually settled in a place called Wilcox, Elk County, Pennsylvania. My family still owns and lives on the property.

Anna and Nils boys seem to have stayed in Sweden, even the youngest August Nilsson who would have only been around 11 yrs old.

Anna and Nils used the last name Peterson. Johan though changes his last name from Andersson to ELMQUIST (after Elmas, Sweden where he was born) and Johanna used that name for her and the boys when they left Sweden.

I dont want anything, I just think it would be wonderful to meet the other side of the family. My Grandfather and his siblings are still alive they would be the Grandchildren of Johanna and Johan.

Johanna and Johan also had a set of twin boys born in Sweden in 1877 their names were:Johannes Harmon Johansson and Oscar Julius Johansson they both died about a month after ther were born. They had three more children in Sweden. They went on to have 9 more children in America for a total of 14.

Best Regards,
