Thanks to your help I have finally got some information about the last of my 6 sisters and brothers who I have been looking for in Astoria. Now I am looking for information about this family and their descendants:

1. Gustafson (Johnson?) Johanna (b.11 jun 1853-Pedersöre Kållby Dalabäck), married Matt Kronqvist, Jakobstad, Finland. The couple emigrated to Astoria sometimes in 1885-1887 (a little before her sisters & brothers). They lived in Astoria for a while and the first 3 children are buried in Astoria. The family has probably moved somewhere else later, destination unknown.

2. Child 1 Kronqvist, died young
2. Child 2 Kronqvist, died young
2. Child 3 Kronqvist, died young
2. Child 4 Kronqvist
2. Marie Kronqvist, single
2. Alema Kronqvist, married
Alex Newman
3. Harriet Newman
3. Daughter 2 Newman
3. Daughter 3 Newman
3. Son 1 Newman
3. Son 2 Newman
