Paternal g-g grandparents - the Swedes and the Danes
Pedar Bengston married Katerina Johansdatter in Virestad, Kronosberg, Smaland Sweden; both were born in Sweden, as were all their children and the family immigrated to Chicago in the early1870's.
Smith - all I know is they were from Sweden and this is not the original name.
Kjaer - stayed in Denmark, around Holstebro. My dad's first cousin has done a very detailed family history and has graciously shared it all with me.
Sorenson - stayed in Denmark and like the Kjaer's, cousin Jim has done a wonderful family history on them as well.
