I have been searching for information regarding the Ek part of my ancestry. I have an Olaf Ek as my 3rd great grandfather, his son Swan John 'SJ' Ek was my connection to him. From what I understand Olaf had 4 boys (SJ and his brothers) with his first wife (name unknown) before emigrating in 1882. According to the 1900 census, Olaf married an Anna in 1900 and took over as father of her three children (Alfred, Minnie, Adolph). I know that SJ lived in McPherson County Kansas and I know that his granddaughter (my grandmother Darlene Ek) was born there but Im not sure about Olaf as the 1900 census had him and Anna and her children living in North Dakota... Could this be the same Oaf and Anna Ek?
