According to the names in my deceased grandfather's obituary, his father's name was Olof Sandell, and his mother, Rose. The obituary said that he was born in New Sweden but someone I talked with a number of years ago who does genealogy in New Sweden could not find the name there and suggested maybe it was in Westmanland or one of the other small communities that were settled by Swedes. My grandfather was born in 1886. Years back my mom said that the last name was changed somewhat as alot of Scandinavians did that when they emigrated to America, I don't know how much it was changed. I have no one left as far as family goes to ask questions of as my mom and her brother & sister have passed on. My greatgrandfather also remarried after his first wife died from what my mother said, and Rose may be his second wife, I don't know.
I knew very little about my maternal grandfather until I started doing a family history about 25+rs. ago, and I started asking questions about this side of the family (my grandfather's side, too).
