Johan Månsson

I am looking for the parents of Johan Månsson who was born Oct, 1842 may have been born in Säby, Jönköping. He came to America in about 1871. According to the 1900 South Dakota census, he had a sister, Anna, born in May 1837.

Well, before you find the parents, you need to find his parish of birth so you can look up who the parents were. This person has the right birthdate and last name and a similar given name. His place of birth doesn't match and he emigrated earlier than you said. These patronymic names are very common so I don't know if he is yours, but it is nice that the birthdate matches. Maybe?

From the Emibas CD, made from registrations in the Swedish parish to go to a foreign country:

Post 404991

Månsson, Johannes
Dräng (unmarried man)

b. 10/9/1842 in Hörja, Kristianstads län (Skåne)

Emigrated 5/7/1866
from Hörja 11, Hörja, Kristianstads län (Skåne)
to Amerika

Source: Household Examination Roll, p. 31

Emibas migration file ID: Hörja L 1866 002

Dräng = farmhand.

Anna might be Hanna. Who knows? Remember how common these names are. You'll have to do some checking in the Swedish parish records and at the Swenson Center, among other places.

Flicka = girl.

The Swenson Center doesn't have online records.

I see no Johan (or Johannes or Jonas) with a father named Måns (or with surname Månsson) born 1842 in the Säby births C:7 1821-1849 (GID 251.39.71500).

"Emigranten" CD has one Johan Månsson from Säby:

Age: 31
Parish: SÄBY
County: F (Jönköping)
Date: 1871-07-28
Destination: HENRY
Fellows: NEJ (Alone)
Source code: 5:512:16644

I dont see him in the moving-out records for 1871 in Säby C:9 1870-1878 page 494 (GID 251.41.58400), so perhaps he left without giving proper notice to his parish. Or the Säby in the emigration record is an error, and he came from somewhere else.

P.S. Are you sure about Jönköping county? There were parishes named Säby also in Malmöhus and Väsmanland counties.

I only got Jönköping from the response to a previous request. It could very well be a different län. Does anyone have access to the church frecords for the other Säby parishes.
