Mar 18, 2012View SourceHello :)My great-aunt's name was also Martha Nelson, but middle initial I (for Isabella), born in New Sweden about 1888 to Johan Nilsson and Pernilla (Nellie) Persdotter Nygren - of Svenstrop and Vasby (Malmo) Sweden respectively."My" Martha was the sister to my grandmother, Carolina Albertina Nelson (Nillsson), born in New Sweden March 9, 1886. Two older brothers - Philip and Emil - were born about 1876 and 1878 in Portland, Maine before the family moved to New Sweden. Two other sisters, Ellen and Mary, were born in New Sweden in 1881 and 1883, respectively.Geneaology is amazing, isn't it! It gives one a sense of continuity with preceding generations.Linda Thompson(Wayland, MA)In a message dated 3/18/2012 6:40:04 A.M. Eastern Daylight Time, sylejmanikina@... writes:
I have this information:
Martha M. Nelson was born 1901 August 24 (according to what I've been told)
and her father's name was Carl Nelson and Martha were born in Sweden. They
emigrated to North America around 1901-1903.
Martha (Martha Nelson of New Sweden) was later married to Carl David Anderson
(born in Woodland, Maine).
Carl David's parents were Carl Gustaf Anderson and Wilhelmina Josephina
What I wonder about is if anyone knows anything about Martha M. Nelson, and if
I have the right birth date on her? Does anyone know anything about her family
(father, mother, siblings)?
