G-G Grandparents on my dad's side

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.
