Hello!
I wonder if enyone can help me to find this people.

Johannes Nordman born 8.6 1881 in Pörtom. Emigrated to Amerika 1913. Declared to be dead with official declaration of death 1.7 1973.

Married 24.6 1910 to Wendla Karolina Zackrisdotter Borgar born in Tölby Korsholm 13.12 1882. Emigrated together with her daughter to Amerika and died in Bitumen Pennsylvania on the 16 of february 1920.

Daughter Anni Ingeborg born in Korsholm on the 10 of december1911. Emigrated to Amerika in 1916. Declared to be dead with official declaration of death 1.1 2002. I have no information about marriage and children.

The familys surname MIGHT also be Åblad.

With greetings from a cold Nynäshamn

Wow Kerstin! What luck! If Wendla died in Feb 1920, I figured she wouldn't appear in the census. I found the family and the census was taken Jan 3! So she's listed with husband and 2 daughters.

They were in Noyes, Clinton County, Pennsylvania.

I believe this is John and daughter, Tyra, found in Indiana. I haven't looked at the map to see where this is in relation to where they were in 1920.

Inga is not with them so maybe she was already married. ??

Immigration year for John is 1899. Shows born in Sweden but I'm fairly certain this is the correct family.

[edit] Oops! I saw Indiana and thought it was the state. This is Indiana County in the state of Pennsylvania.

Kerstin, do you know what Ingeborg's husband's name was? I searched just on Ing* and didn't find anything that looked promising. Maybe she went by Ann(i) but that search would return too many results. Do you have any more clues?

I found the baptismal page for Tyra Maria but because her parents were not members, there is nothing more.

Interesting is the fact that the Åblad surname appeared on the same baptismal list page. Perhaps this Edward Åblad is somebody of interest to you?

This town is close to Bituman. Swenson center does not have a church record for Indiana, PA.

Thank you very much for your help Kevin. I asked my mother if she knew if Ingeborg was married, but she didn`t. I think I have to make a phonecall to my uncle, maby he knows if his cousin was married or not.
It was also interesting to find out that they had another daughter. I didn`t knew enything about her. So once again

THANK YOU VERY MUCH

I Have found some people by the name of Krepansky on SSDI, but I havn`t got eny anserws from them, so I don`t know if they are related to Tyra Marie or not.

I saw in the Ellis Islands records that Vendla Karolina and Anni Ingeborg went to America from Kristiania in Norway in 1916
Kristiania is called Oslo nowadays.

I just came across this thread and have some information on the people mentioned as follows:

Johannes Nordman died December, 1965 in Jamaica Queens, New York.

Ann Nordman married Robert Ewig. They had 2 children, Robert, Jr. and Paula. Ann died in November, 1972 and Bob died in June, 1985, both in New Jersey.

Tyra Marie married Pete Krempasky and lived in New York before moving to California. Tyra died in 1992. Her husband is still alive. They have 1 son and 1 daughter.

It is my understanding that Johannes originally emigrated to Gardner, Massachusetts, and would travel to Bitumen to work in the coal mines. According to the census of 1910, Johannes originally came to the USA in 1899.

The reason I am familiar with this information is that Johannes Nordman was the brother of my husband's mother. I hope the original poster is still active on these boards as it seems that there is more than a casual connection.
