My husbands grandfather arrived in the United States on November 19, 1904. On the ship Compania leaving from London. He was Karl EDVARDSSON age 19 from Sweden. Over the years his name went from Karl EDVARDSSON to Carl ANDERSFON, ANDERSSON, EDWARDS & finally to Carl ADWARDS.

His destination was South New Berlin, NY, to stay with cousin John CARLSSON.

With him & the spellings may be wrong because they are off a ship manifest, but all were from the same town in Sweden and going to South New Berlin.

Hilda Nilsson 23 to stay with friend Imma ANDERSSON
Idn ETEANOROF 18        "
Betty ETEANOROF 20      "

Lund BLANDA 18 to stay with friend Tilda KARLSSON
Karl ANTON 24             "

Manfred BENGTSSON 18 to stay with cousin Tilda CARLSSON

Gerda ANDERSSON 17 to stay with friend John KARLSSON

Alma KARLSSON 22 to stay with brother John KARLSSON

Amanda BENGTSSON 20 to stay with sister Selma KILGAN

Because of the similarities, some of these people must have been brothers, sisters, cousins & were going to the same homes.

Karl EDVARDSSON / Carl ADWARDS eventually lived in Norwich & was a sheriff. He married Gertrude WHITE & they had 3 children, Edwin, Evelyn and Anna ADWARDS.

If anyone knows of these people I would like to know.

Richard Wheeler Mon Nov 6 16:12:27 2006
I am seeking information on Daniel WHEELER, an early settler in Lebanon, Chenango County, NY from 1797 until his untimely death December 25, 1806 (age 35) in Lebanon. His wife's name was Amanda WHEELER, who after his death, in a second marriage, became Amanda LAPHAM. She died in Eaton on April 22, 1869 at age 92. Daniel had a brother in Lebanon with him at the time named Elisha WHEELER. Elisha WHEELER lived in the area until his death on December 21, 1836, age 68. Daniel and Amanda WHEELER had five children. I would like to find out their names. Additionally, Id like to find out where Daniel and his wife came from, before arriving in Chenango County in 1797. It is reported he came from Chatham, Columbia County, NY. It is possible he was actually born in Connecticut and as a child removed to Chatham, Columbia County with his family. Then, as young adults, they (Daniel and Elisha) again removed to Lebanon, Chenango County, NY. Should you have any information on this matter I would appreciate hearing from you. I have data on WHEELER descendents from Lebanon, Otselic and on to Syracuse I can share.
Best regards, Richard Wheeler

Donna Burkert Grothaus Thu Nov 30 09:34:04 2006
Several boundary and name changes have occurred since the granting of lands in the 1780's to Vermont Sufferers. Trying to determine which county land records of the original grants are located. Reuben SMITH was granted 170 acres in #58 and Newel EARL (Newhall EARLE) 200 acres in #55. Perhaps neither resided on their grant and may have sold their claims settling elsewhere in NY. Thank, so much!
