Surname Saturday - VESTERSTROM

Surname Saturday - VESTERSTROM

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 we know and will be reporting on 9 new female surname lines of the possible sixteen: VESTERSTROM, SPRANG, LORD, KIMMERLING, FIRESTONE, SCHWYHART, LEE, JONES, and KIRK in the coming weeks.

Today, we will look briefly at VESTERSTROM, a good Swedish name.

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 SODERSTROM.

The mother of Peter Andersson (Pehr) SODERSTROM was Greta Lisa VESTERSTROM (She was born in Hedvigsfors, Bkjuraker Parish, Sweden; and her death date was in 1862 - thanks to Aunt LVene, not confirmed personally) who married Anders SODERSTROM (1787-1858) in Hedvigsfors, Bkjuraker Parish, Sweden (Given by my Aunt LVene, as well - I have not confirmed this, at all, either, to date, thank you).

Families are Forever!  ;-)
