We are planning an Andrew Christopherson Reunion at 12:30 p.m., 18 July 2010 at Oakey Park shelter in Osceola, WI. You will find it by going north on Cascade St. (Highway 35). Turn right on 6th Avenue. It dead ends at Oakey Park. (In case of significant rain, the reunion will be at our home.) Andrew and Anna Marie Christopherson’s children were: Inga Mathea Christopherson Gilbertson Wilen, Jens (James) Christopherson, Anna Louisa Christopherson Jerdee, Ole Christopherson, Otto Christopherson, Charles Christopherson, Caroline Christopherson Nelson and Mary Christopherson. I am in touch with living relatives of all branches of the family. (Mary never married.) If you are in one of these branches, you are encouraged to come. Children are welcome too.

Seeking contact with any descendant of NilsChristopherson (also spelled Christoffersson) who emigrated from Sweden in 1881 and settled in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He was a tailor by trade. With his wife, Amalia Christina Hallberg, he had the following children:
Fredrich, March 15, 1875 in Sweden
Ernst, August 24, 1877 in Sweden
Gustaf, February 19, 1879 in Sweden
Selma, March 20, 1881 in Sweden
Elina, January 11, 1883 in Michigan
His wife, Amalia Christina, died in 1884 and he remarried to
Augusta Anderson. From this marriage were the following children:
Eddy, May 6, 1885 in Michigan
George, May 9, 1886 in Michigan
Mabel, June 13, 1888 in Michigan
Arthur, April 13, 1890 in Michigan
Florence, ca. November 1897 in Kentucky
By 1900 NilsChristopherson is found living in Toledo, Ohio with wife, Augusta, and children George, Arthur and Florence. It seems that by around 1905, Nils Christopherson was dead, but the location and date of death is unknown.
