Axel Stanislaus Click HERE for Emigration Record




Anders Wilhelm (?Larson?) did emigrate to the USA but he has not been found. His last name is not known since he supposedly selected a different name.

Lars August is next in line to be researched after John.

Gustaf Frithiof came to the USA and adopted his mothers maiden name of Bonnevier. He came to the USA in about 1884. He worked in a tailor shop in Joliet, Illinois in 1885. The shop may have been run by his brother John. He went on to marry Ida Peterson 10/17/1885 Cook County Illinois. He was at the tailor shop still in 1887. Then he most likely moved to Chicago. West 61st Street in the USA census. The 1900 census has him as age 20 at the West 61st Street address.. But the 1910 census has him at 51 years of age which is correct. All his children show in that census except Carl who had moved out by then, it is supposed.

His children include:
Carl, Gustaf 1889 foundry worker, Siegred 1891 clerk dry goods store, Arvid 1893 Edison office boy, Henry 1897, Oscar 1900. This information is in the formative stages and may not be entirely correct.

Axel Stanislaus Larson came to the USA in 1885. He worked at the tailor shop in Joliet, Illinois which might have been run by his older brother John. He married Alda Swanson in 1888. Alda came to the USA in 1887. More on Axel below.

Generation 1865

Axel Stanislaus Larson October 26, l865 - October 27, l922  (57 years 1 day)

He emigrated 3/3/1885 from Overum, Vastra Ed, Kalmar lan (Smoland) to North America.

His future wife Alda came in 1887.  They had nine children. My great grandfather is said to have come with siblings but I can not find them in immigrant arrivals. I am working on that now.

Axel married Alda (Swanson)    He was married to Alda four months after her arrival in the USA. They were from the same area in Sweden. 

See Larson Documents for Emigration Records.

Axel worked at the shop of John Larson in Joliet Illinois as a tailor. He eventually opened his own tailor shop on the main street of Joliet above the Rialto Theater.


Axel and Alda had nine children: All lived to adulthood.

More about Kalmar, Sweden  SOURCE

Welcome to the city of Kalmar

Kalmar is one of the oldest cities in the country – once it was even the third largest city in Sweden. History is waiting around each corner - you will find traces of every different historical period – everything from the Stone Age to the period of great power.
Take a walk down the cobbled streets in the Old Town and finish with a visit to Kalmar Castle, which has a history dating back 800 years. Today it is a living Renaissance palace with room for both banquets and conferences.

At the County Museum you will find the largest treasure of gold coins in Sweden - see it along with all the other findings from the man-of-war Kronan. When the evening comes the fun is not over, now it is just getting started! Kvarnholmen has a seething life in pubs and restaurants and in the summertime we offer entertainment both at Larmtorget and in Stadsparken.

One of the abutments of the Öland Bridge is in the middle of the town –
so if you are on ”The island of the sun and the winds” you are close to pulsating Kalmar.
