I have a request from Finland for help finding this family in the US:

August Mattsson Peldo-Sundqvist, b. 23 Sep 1875, Öja, Karleby, d. 1912 in America. Emigrated to US 1893. Son of Matts Andersson Peldo and Maria Mattsdotter Djupsund.

August was married and had a son Edwin Sandqvist, who had a daughter Jackie.

No further information was given as to where these people settled. Since August was about 18 when he emigrated, it's possible he didn't marry until ca 1898-1900.

Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.

If we knew the town and state to which they emigrated, I could search in a church record at Swenson.

I don't even have to look it up - I know there is no church film at Swenson for Bisbee, Arizona. Too many ppl went to that place as shown on church records and somehow got swallowed up in the Arizona desert:)

Found a good site

which has Bisbee/Lowell Evergreen Cemetery data on-line
http://www.mycochise.com/cembisbees.php

Located in Bisbee, a short distance past the mine near Route 80 from Bisbee to Douglas. It is just north of Route 80 on a side road into an area that used to be called Lowell.

August is listed as SANDQUIST Gus in the A.O.U.W.section unfortunately no more details.

There is also a marriage database unfortunately it is not complete and the years 1902-1910 aren't covered however I didn't find a marriage for them 1893-1901. I noticed on the CA death list Edwins birth is listed as Arkansas perhaps they were married there?

I found the same info on the California Death Index, but Edwin G was born in Arizona, not Arkansas. It does show Christina Sandquist died 1947 in San Bernadino, CA. Father's surname Widmark. I'll check the AZ census more closely, but too tired tonight. Oh, Ancestry has Edwin's birth as 28 Oct 1900, not 1901.

Here's the 1900 census image. Look how they spelled the name: "Sunkwiss"! How on earth am I supposed to find these people with dumb enumerators! ;)

I think they have the death year wrong. Here's the 1910 census and the wife is listed as a widow.

This appears to be the above mentioned Carl. The wife isn't listed in the household though. :confused:

Many thanks, Jeanette and Kevin. I guess it's possible they have 1912 as the wrong death date for August in Finland if he doesn't appear in the 1910 census. I'll pass this information along.

Jeanette and Kevin,

I just finished translating all your data into Swedish for someone in Finland who doesn't speak English - just hope he understands it all. Both of us thank you profusely for all the effort you've put into this search.

Hi June,
I couldn't resist another attempt to locate Gus' death date at the Arizona site listed above. This time I was successful.

Death SANDQUIST, GUS (blank) ____.__.__ 1904.02.14 .. .. COCHISE The image shows the cause of death as Cerebral Hemmorhage (Sic).

Hope it is of some help
