I only have sketchy information of family, furnished by one elderly aunt, who is Anton's daughter. Any inforamtion at all would be helpful.

I'm researching my gr-grandparents Wm and Martha Shoffstall McDonald who went to Dodge County (Fremont?) in about 1890 from Kentucky. Also a possible brother of William's named Samuel (looking for any descendants) William was a constable or marshall in Fremont sometime between 1890- 1910. Would anyone know if there would have been any kind of records required to be a law enforcement officer in that time period or where I might look? I'm desperately looking for William's parents names. Would appreciate any help. Also looking for any information or descendants on Purley "Burt" Abbott who was Martha's son from a previous marriage. William also had three daughters from a previous marriage to Sarah Crawford in Kentucky. I think a couple of daughters lived to adulthood. I don't have much information them. Thanks in advance.

I've just received some information from a contact in Sweden that my grandfather, Peter Thurstenson (the name he took when he arrived in the US - his name was Per Jo:nsson in Sweden)may have made Hooper, Nebraska his first home in the US. The new information I have indicates he was born December 6, 1869 in Huaro:d parish, Kristianstads la:n (county), provine of Skane. He emigrated in April 23, 1888 from the farm Elmhult # 4 in Svensko:p parish, Malmo:hus la:n, Skane. He was found in the Swdish passengerlists from the port of Malmo: in May 10, 1888. He is listed as Per Jo:nsson, 19 years old, labourer, from Svensko:p. He had a ticket for Hooper, MN (we think the MN is a mistake and should have been Nebraska) Ticket number 1888:2484:1003. At the same ticket travelled also Elna Persdotter Lund, 34 years old, and her daughter Ingrid Lovisa, 4 years old. Elna Persdotter was born October 1, 1853 in Huaro:d parish and her daughter Ingri Lovisa born April 25, 1884 in Svensko:p parish. They emigrated to America in Akpril 23, 1888 from the farm Elmhult # 3 in Svensko:p parish. Elna Persdotter's husband Ola Lund was born June 17, 1849 in O:stra A:spinge parish. He emigrated to America in May 18, 1887 from the same farm in Svensko:p. If my suppositions are correct, Ola Lund arrived in the US 1 year before the others and settled in Hooper, Nebraska. He later sent for his wife and child and my grandfather (19 years old) traveled with her as protection. I think Elna may have been Peter Thurstenson's half sister but I have never had any report of any of his family except one (I touch on her below) coming to the US so this would be news to me if this is correct. Would anyone have any information on any of these individuals in or around Hooper, Nebraska in 1887, 1888 or 1889 and possibly later? Also, sometime after the original arrivals, I know Peter Thurstenson had a half sister (she changed her name to Elsie Thurstenson and later married John Runquist of Oakland, Nebraska.) She was Peter's housekeeper until she married. I don't know if she was the daughter of Peter's Father or Mother but suspect maybe his father from information recently received. Peter's parent's names were Jo:ns and Anna Torstenson. My information from Sweden reports an Elna Jo:nsdotter (my reason for suspecting her father was Peter's father also and Anna was her step-mother) born June 29, 1856 in Huaro:d parish. She emigrated to America in April 26, 1889 from the farm Elmhult #4 in Svensko:p. She also may have lived in Hooper. Now for a real long shot. A young man lived with my grandfather whom we think may have been his nephew. He is buried next to my grandfather. He died January 20, 1918 in World War I. We have a letter from the Governor of Nebraska announcing his death to my grandfather, Peter Thurstenson as next of kin, of his death and sent Certificates of Honor from the French President and Woodrow Wilson, US President indicating medals of Honor were presented (we have possession of these certificates). We've been trying to discover exactly who Emil Anderson was. His death cerificate from the Army states he was a Private in Company F, 109th Engineers. This was the extent of our information until we receive with this other information from Sweden an Emil Andersson, 16 years old, who left from the port of Malmo: in May 4, 1904 on his way to New York. He is listed to have come from Svensko:p. On the ticket number next to his traveled themaid Anna Andersson 19 years old from Svensko:p. Was this a sister? Also, did they also end up at Hooper? Emil did live with my grandfather, Peter for a time. In 1905 my grandfather moved to a farm he purchased in Anoka, Nebraska. He married Ida Nelson who was born in Oakland, Nebraska and they were married in Wausa, Nebraska in 1908 and they lived on the Anoka Farm. We think Emil continued to lived with them but we are not sure. Also, we don't know when Elsie married John Runquist and when she would have quit housekeeping from Peter. We've been able to gain lots of new information on these family members but each piece of information generates more questions. Right now a lot seems to be hinging on what we learn regarding the gathering in Hooper, Nebraska. If anyone is able to offer any clues to any of the above, your response would be sincerely appreciated. Joe E. Thurstenson
