I'm searching for a parish/county of origin for two brothers, Axel & Victor PETERSSON/PEHRSSON, b.ca. 1865/6, emigrated from Sweden to the U.S. 1885+/-, and changed their surname to FREDLUND, supposedly so the rest of their family wouldn't be able to find them! They went to California first to work in the orange groves before moving on to Colorado to work on the building of the railway through the Rockies. Axel married Anna HAKANSSON in Montrose, CO, in 1894. He was naturalized in 1889. I have a lot of work to do, locating his census returns in the U.S. and hopefully locating the records of the church he attended. Just curious to know if any PETERSSON/PEHRSSON researchers are "missing" these 2 brothers. Best regards, Julie Preston, anpreston@msn.com
