I am searching for any information pertaining to the following people mentioned:

Andrew(Anders) HOGBERG, born in Sweden on January 1, 1835, and his wife, Anne(Anna) HOGBERG (maiden name unknown), born in Sweden in 1831 or 1832, immigrated to the US with their son, Peter HOGBERG, born in Sweden on August 3, 1862, and his wife Hilda HOGBERG (maiden name SWANSON and possibly a twin), born in Sweden on either March 19 or 25, 1863. Peter and Hilda had a son, Edwin HOGBERG, born in Bloomington, Illinois in 1888 or 1889, and a duaghter, Rose HOGBERG, born in Lexington, Illinois on September 25, 1892. They also had another son, Andrew HOGBERG, born in Fanny Bay, BC, Canada in 1898. All of the above mentioned people immigrated from the US to Canada between 1892 and 1898. Rose was naturalized in Canada in 1903. It is likely that this HOGBERG family immigrated with other family members who remained in the US. I do not know where the family came from in Sweden or when. I only know that it had to have been between 1863 and 1888. This particular HOGBERG family changed their name to ANDERSON sometime after their arrival in North America. Andrew(Anders) and Anna both have HOGBERG on their death certificates; however, their children all have ANDERSON. Some additional info I have obtained is that they were farmers and often hunted and trapped for local butcher shops. Also, Andrew(Anders) is said to have been a Methodist.

If there is anyone who might have any information or suggestions, please e-mail me.
Thank you so much!

FYI...Edwin HOGBERG is my Great-Grandfather

We know she came to live with her sisters here but don't know the sisters names. My 93 year old mother thinks there was a brother Pontious.
We thought there was a sister Lillian. Those names ring any bells? I have the marraiage certificate from Chicago 1890.

Pontious - Lillian
