War veteran and emigrant Hilding Widjeskog died at age 90 on 6 December 2007. He was born 23 Mar 1917 at Småbönders, Terjärv. He and his wife Ebba lived first in Manderbacka where his father's mother came from, then they moved to Pedersöre in 1950. In 1957 until retirement, they lived first in New York and then in southern New Jersey. Together with Ole Granholm he wrote a book "Emigrantvägar" in 2006 and I am pleased they presented me with a copy of the book. It contains many interesting stories about Terjärv emigrants.
