Surname Saturday - SPRANG

Surname Saturday - SPRANG

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

Looking ahead, from the "round of thirty-two" - 3rd great-grandparents (scroll down a bit...) - 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 SPRANG.

As noted earlier, 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/ROLIN SODERSTROM.

The mother of Johanna Margretta ROLEN/ROLIN was Margareta SPRANG. She was, of course, married to Jonas Rolin. Jonas Rolin was the Lutheran minister in Hassela Parish from 1826 to 1864 (This information all was given to me by my Aunt LVene, as well - I have not confirmed this, at all, either, to date, thank you).

Families are Forever!  ;-)
