In the early 20th century my paternal grandparents, Rikard Severin Källman (1887-1968) and Lydia Abrahamson (1890-1978) immigrated from Sweden. I am exploring my Swedish ancestors immigrant journey to "Amerika" and life in Swedish Chicago. I am searching for cousins everywhere to share family stories, pictures, memories and new discoveries about our Swedish heritage and our family today.

Wednesday's child - Johan Gustaf Adolf Bergvall

Perhaps 24 June 1848 was a nice warm day.  Perhaps he was fishing or perhaps he had finished his chores and how could a ten year old boy resist a cool swim? We can't know the exact circumstances.
