Looking for info on Claus Herman (Larsson) Bolin Family
My grandfather was George Henry Bolin (1893-1942 born and died in MPLS) whose parents were Claus Herman Larsson and Augusta Wilhelmina Fredriksdotter (born 1859 in Foglagården, Valstad, Västergötland, Sweden - died Mpls, MN 1931). The family story goes that Claus took the name Bolin when he came to America because there were too many Larssons!
Similiarly, most of Augusta's brothers took on the last name Moberg in America. Augusta's parents were Fredrik Larsson (1828-1919)and Lotta Johansdotter (1834-1920). Her parents both died in Tidaholm, Västergötland, Sweden. I am looking for any information on either of these two lines. Either back to Sweden or descendant lines here in America. I have a lot of information to share especially on the pedigree of Augusta and would love to hear from you! Both lines seem to go back to Västergötland, Sweden.
