Does anyone have data on the parents of Lena (Helena) Sofia Johan-Fredriksdotter Wevar, b. 18 May 1861, Linnusperä, Karleby, married in 1877 to Johan Eriksson Lågland, b. 1849 in Korplax, Karleby? I didn't find anything in Talko or HisKi. In Haals Ättlingar, Tab. 84, her patronymic is given as Johansdotter, daughter of Johan Johansson Wevar. Another source gave her patronymic as Johan-Fredriksdotter and referred to her father as J.F. Wefvar.

Thanks,

June

June,

Is it so that the parents you have marked as his parents in your collection in Talko (http://finlander.eget.net/angraf/getperson.php?personID=I53232&tree=finlander) aren't the right ones?

Mother: Brita Gustava Mattsdotter HALONEN, b. 31 JAN 1837, Sodankylä, Oulu, Finland

Hasse,

The parents of Johan Eriksson Lågland, b. 1849, are correct in my database, but I am not sure of his wife's parents (this is what was sent to me by someone:
Father: Johan Johansson Saari-Pulkkis- STORE, b. 18 DEC 1837, Karleby,Finland.
Mother: Brita Gustava Mattsdotter HALONEN, b. 31 JAN 1837, Sodankylä, Oulu, Finland .

I have data indicating Johan's wife was Lena Sofia Johan-Fredriksdotter, b. 18 May 1861 in Linnusperå, daughter of J. F. Wefvar and Maria Lena. I wasn't able to find anything on a Johan Fredrik Wefvar married to someone named Maria Lena. J. F. Wefvar died 22 Dec 1884 when he drowned with his son Johan. And Maria Lena d. 17 Jan 1899 in America. But that's all I know. So it would seem that the parents of Lena Sofia in my database may not be correct. I have a copy of Johan Lågland's journal and he indicates his wife Lena Sofia was born in 1861 and married at age 16, but the only mention of his wife's parents are J.F. Wefvar and Maria Lena.

I have no answer to your question, but I hope you don´t mind me although taking part...
Maybe Jakob Edvard Wefvar 23.5.1840-28.4.1911 was a relative.
He was the first one who collected folksongs and other traditions in the swedishspeaking Finland....very interesting

Thanks, Ann-Marie,

I don't have Jakob Edvard in my database, so can't determine if he was linked to that family.

One interesting thing I just learned is that there was a Jakob Alfred Carlsson Wefvar, b. 1854, who emigrated to Chicago and changed his name to Weaver.

They seem to be third cousins.Their GGGF was Christoffer Jacobsson Wefvar b. 1729, married to Margaretha Henricdr.
