Gunnar Bengtsson was born at Lekåsa 1780 4/10 and died 1853 13/10 -- with a comment in the far right column - that is possibly the "cause of death". [His wife] Husf. written first then scratched out when Gunnar died and Enk meaning widow is written - for Kerstin Andersdtr. Born at Mby (The abbreviation for Melbey which is now Stora Melby, the main church of the parish and Magra is a smaller subchurch in the same parish - they are only a few miles apart).

Kerstin Andersdtr's birth was1797 1?/7. Listed was Dot. [dotter] Maja Gunnarsdotter who was born at Lekåsa, on 1827 27/9. Another of the sons was listed as Anders, place of birth not readable, 1838 1/?8 in his moving out column he left this farm in 1853 - see page 72, and with Maya [Maja] and their mother the moving out columns stated see page 75, which follows below this is from page 75 of the same records.

The farm was still shown as Ambjörnsgården, Borrås, but obviously different houses than before - likely they moved from a big house to two smaller ones. Pige, which is crossed out - so she was working at this place as a domestic helper. Gustaf Johnansson Frisk married Maja Gunnarsdtr, born at Lekåsa, 1827 29/9. And above her name is written Gustaf Johansson, born at Lena, 1837 17/4 - also that he was born at Lena, and married in 1860 with a comments to the right. [These dates and information match with the records that were located at Annandale at the Saint John's Lutheran Church.]

Below is the family listing of Maja and her parents Gunner Bengtsson and his wife Kerstin Andersdotter. They are living in Magra and are listed as being residents of Magra Parish of Staraheden 4 Borrås was listed Gunnar Bengtsson f [born] 1780 Lekåsa. They lived there in 1839 from Lekåsa.

Notes For Anders Gunnarsson

Annders Gunnarsson married Annika Jonsdotter, and she was the daughter of Jonas Anderson and Kerstin Larsdotter born Mellby, 1825. He was born at Lekåsa, 1833, Gunnar Bengtsson and Kerjstin Andersdotter where his parents and they married at Stora Mellby, August 7, 1859 and another date is also given Oct 13, 1859. He was of Borrås, Rote, [Parish District] Ambjornsgården, which was a farm in Magra, and she was of Tjerjkp. Tm.

Maja and her brother Anders, and Gustaf and his brother Svante may have all made the trip to Wright Co., MN, from Magra, Sweden together and along with them also came their children and probably some friends and maybe even other relatives. Gustaf Dahlin, Maja's son, stated on his naturalization papers that they arrived in New York on November of 1882.

Since the below mentioned land claim was filed in 1876, this may not be the same Anders Gunnarsson - Gunderson as listed here in this study, in Wright County, MN, but the record reads: Wright County, MN History, page 878, contains the history of the Swedish Evangelical Lutheran Church of Cokato (now known as Evangelical Lutheran Church) which was organized on Jan. 7, 1870. At this first meeting Andrew Gunderson was elected trustee to serve a term of three years. And page 166 contains a listing of original land owners. Andrew Gunderson filed a first claim on June 27, 1876 on section 5 of Township 118, Range 28 (Stockholm, MN). ["History of Wright County Minnesota, Volumes I and II", published in 1915 by Franklin Curtiss - Wedge]

Their children and grandchildren are listed here in St. John's Cemetery in Wright Co., MN. There are 3 different spellings used - Gunnerson, Gunnarson and Gunderson.
