Anders & Anna Lisa Malm Illinois
Hello, My next "brick wall" is the Andreas Johansson Malm. Andreas was born in Hjalmseryd, Jonkoping, Sweden 25 Jan 1828. His mother was Catherina Johansdotter. His father is unknown at this time He married Anna Lisa Jonasdotter (Carlson) on 25 Mar 1851 In Hjalmseryd. Anna was born 8 Mar 1827 in Vrigstad, Jonkoping, Sweden. Her parents were Jonas Carlsson and Lena Maja Jonasdotter.
Andreas and Anna had 7 Children. Carolina Maria,1852-1855; Carolina Sophia, 1855-1929; Carl August b1858; Emma Louisa, 1860-1921; Anna Maria,1863-1939; Samuel Johan, 1866-1866; Augusta Christina, 1867-1925. Andreas and 5 children are listed in Swedish records as moving out to America 23 April 1869. See Genline # 1136.16.3300.
The problem is that Andreas isn't found in any census in the US. Anna Lisa is in Richland Grove Township, Mercer County, Illinois in 1880. Living with he 2 of her children, August and Augusta.
Anna then doesn't show up in any census after that. Swedona Lutheran Church records say Anna died in Sweden in 1899, where in not known. Andreas is not to be found although a researcher said he found Andreas in, I believe, the 1890 Swedish Census in Stockholm.
I have accounted for all the children except for Carl August and would appreciate the help finding where there parents went and died. I would also like to have Augusta Christina (Malm) Peterson's picture. She married my Great Grandfather 27 April 1890 in Moline, Rock Island County, Illinois.
