I am searching for this family. If you have any knowledge of where this family settled in America, would
you let me know please? Märta is a younger sister of my gg grandfather
who pioneered in western Iowa in 1868.

Emigrated from Borgvattnet in Jämtland to America in 1893:

crofter - Paulus Eriksson Forslund b/7 Jan 1832/m/19 Oct 1857
hustru - Märta Greta Jönsdotter b/12 Oct 1833/Stenvikstrand, Ramsele
son - Jonas Erik Paulsson Forslund b/28 April 1859/Borgvattnet
dotter - Anna Katarina Paulsdotter Forslund b/17 March 1862/Borgvattnet
son - Johan Petter Paulsson Forslund b/10 February 1864/Borgvattnet
dotter - Märta Botilda Paulsdotter Forslund b/3 February
son - Anders Paulus Paulsson Forslund b/3 April 1869/Borgvattnet
son - Karl Nikolaus Paulsson Forslund b/15 September 1877/Borgvattnet
dotter - Emma Kristina Paulsson Forslund b/12 September 1879/Borgvattnet

Eldest son (above) Jonas Erik Paulsson Forslund married in Sweden and
brought his family to America in 1903 from their farm in Köttsjön,
Ragunda, Jämtland. Have not located his family in database searches
todate. His family consisted of:

hustru - Katarina Lisa Mårtensdotter b/18 Oct 1863/Hocksjön, Ramsele
dotter - Kristina Margareta Jonsdotter Forslund b/6 Sept
son - Paulus Valfrid Jonsson Forslund b/10 December 1886/Borgvattnet
dotter - Selma Eugenia Jonsdotter Forslund b/15 November 1899/Ragunda
son - Jon Hilding Jonsson Forslund b/5 April 1902/Ragunda

Any clues, information, or data is much appreciated. Send email to
