Hi Bernna, so glad to know I'm not being a bother with the genealogy on the Okerlunds.  After I reread the sheet you sent I also saw where the information on Aunt Gerda was also incorrect but hadn't had time to write you.  Aunt Gerda died in Daytona Bch., Fla and Uncle Dwight had taken her back to Smethport where she was barried. Now I had a nice suprise tonight, I had tried to find someone in Mt Jewett and would you believe tonight I had a phone call for a cousin I had hadn't seen since we were both kids.  He answered a lot of questions as to the family and said if I would send him the form he would fill them out and send them back.  I feel that is a big step forward.  If you so back and look at what you sent this is a grandson of Stephen , and there are quite a few family members in Unkle Stephs family so will send it on to you when I get the information back

 

You mentioned a Caroline O'kerlind I do not believe this person is part of our family , there is also a family of Okerland that are no relatives. You have Grama Caroline Anderson and we have her as Caroline Nelson. None of us have been able to go back any farther than Grampa Okerlund but I believe when he came to this country his name was not Okerlund it was either Swanson, Anderson or Johnson, trying to find the ship he came over here on .  The story goes that when he came to this country there were so many of the other named people on the ship that he changed he's name to Okerlund , that was the name of the man he worked for in the old country. Now I not sure if this is true but Billy had been trying to locate something on Grampa family but couldn't find anything, My Dad had it written on a slip of paper.. The only thing we can do is every one search.

 

All for now    Donna
