Photos of the Nelsons, Minnesota
Jons Nelson and his wife Mariet (b. Olsdotter) lived in Minnesota. Several of the nephews of Mariet stayed their first time in America at her place in Cokato, Minnesota.
Mariet (b. 1839) and her older sister Ingeborg (b. 1836) was born in Millmark, Östmark parish, Värmland, Sweden. When they were very young (from 1850 and on) the two sisters lived together in Gothenburg, Sweden. Eventually, Ingeborg married the school teacher Karl Magnus Blomberg and Marit emigrated to America.
