      Do you know why Viola Perry decided to move from the Swedish Colony area to Manchester, CT? I ask because I have a Lillian ANDERSON who ended up in Manchester as well. Was it the silk mill?

      Hi Keith,
          I have some  more information about the children of David and William. "David, born in 1891, married Martha Nelson. Their children were Viola Peary of Washburn; Ralph C.of Manchester, Conn; Evangeline Jernstrom of Grafton,MA, and Doris Brown of Brewer. David passed away in 1971 at 80. William was born in May 1894. He married Amanda McBrearity Gardner. Their son William Jr. married Ruth McGrath. Ray Gardner married Hilda Dumont abd Donald married Isabel Daigle. Amanda passed away on December 6, 1974 at 75." (Source was pg 55 from 115 Years in Woodland Aroostook County, Maine 1861 - 1976.) 
          I also have Gustaf W. Anderson's  and Ray Gardner's obituaries in my possession if you would like a copy. Please respond to newswede@maine. rr.com if you're interested.
          Amanda lived up the road from me when I was growing up in New Sweden.
      Hope this helps you.

      Hello Jean,

      Thank you for your e-mail and the information on your website.  Among other things, I find the various ways of spelling names fascinating.  

      With best wishes,
