Surname Saturday - ROLEN/ROLIN

On previous Saturdays, we have reported all of the known ancestor lineage surnames through the great-grandparent surnames (see earlier Saturday Surname posts in the left column, scroll down - back into 2009).

From the "round of sixteen" - great-great grandparents (- scroll down a bit...) we have already reported six of the eight male surnames, two are unknown (from Denmark). Five of the eight on the female lines are known: ROLEN, BUTLER, CARLE, SIMMONS, and DUNCAN; these will be reported next.

Looking ahead, from the "round of thirty-two" - 3rd great-grandparents - We know and will have reported on 9 of the sixteen Male lines (four are from Denmark) we know and will be reporting on nine new female surname lines of the possible sixteen: VESTERSTROM, SPRANG, LORD, KIMMERLING, FIRESTONE, SCHWYHART, LEE, JONES, and KIRK.

Today, we will look briefly at ROLEN/ROLIN. Translations between Swedish and English are not consistent, so I will us ROLEN to be consistent.

Margaret Nellie (Maggie) SODERSTROM (b. abt 1846, Bjuraker Parish, Sweden) married Michael SMITH (my father's paternal grandfather) 30 Dec 1869. She was the daughter of Peter Andersson (Pehr) and Johanna Margretta ROLEN SODERSTROM.

Johanna Margreta ROLEN, born in 1817 in Sweden, was the daughter of Jonas ROLEN/ROLIN and Margreta SPRANG. I have received this information from the SODERSTROM Ancestral Chart in the Aunt LVene Family History Book. This report also lists two brother of Jjohanna Margreta: Anders Vilhelm (b. Jul 1845, Sweden) and Johan Peter (b. 16 Oct 1850, Sweden) Thank you, again.

Families are Forever! '=_
