Wordless Wednesday: Kjerstin Johnson (1834−1927)

This is my great great grand­mother, Kjer­stin John­son, who was born in Swe­den, immi­grated to Amer­ica at the age of 34, had 12 chil­dren (11 sur­viv­ing to adult­hood), and died at the age of 92.

You can read more about her and her fam­ily in “His­tory of Swan John­son Fam­ily, Nance County, Nebraska, Jan­u­ary 1936,” by her eldest grand­child, Lena John­son Schlicte­meier, also pic­tured here with her mother and grandmother.
