Carl Mauritz HENDRICKSON

My great grandfather, Carl Mauritz HENDRICKSON was born 28 July 1865 in Gravarne, Sweden. He was christened two days later in Kungshamn, Goteborg Och Bohus, Sweden. His father was Henric Pehrsson and his mother was Brita Eliasdotter. He had at least one brother, Hilmer Paulinus who was born 2 October 1867 and christened the next day, also in Kungshamn, Goteborg Och Bohus, Sweden.

That’s about all I know about his life in Sweden. I haven’t been able to nail anything else down. He married Amy Augusta PETTERSON in St. John German Lutheran Church in Montreal Canada on 7 July 1894. Their first son was my Grandfather, Axel Mauritz HENDRICKSON, who was born 9 March 1895 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The family immigrated to the United States because I next find him in the 1900 US Census in Barre, Washington, Vermont, USA.

The family immigrated to the United States because I next find him in the 1900 US Census in Barre, Washington, Vermont, USA. By nineteen hundred, the family had moved to Barre, Washington, Vermont where he worked as a granite polisher. It also had grown to include Carl Albin HENDRICKSON, and Amy C. HENDRICKSON. They were followed by an unnamed child, Walter R, George Raymond, and Rita.

Carl became a citizen of the United Stated 1 September 1904. The family was not in Vermont for the nineteen ten census, but was back for the nineteen twenty census. Axel had married Florence by then and had the first two of their three children, my uncle, and my father. Carl Albin had also married Anna.

The nineteen thirty census has only Rita living with her parents. She disappears after this census.

By nineteen forty, Carl was living with his son Carl and his family. Amy seems to have gone to live with her daughter, Amy, and her family in Connecticut. The nineteen forty census shows an Amy of the right age, living with a family in Connecticut. She is listed as the mother of the head of the house, but her surname is different. The wife of the head of the household is also Amy, born in Vermont. I’m reasonably confident that this is my great grandmother and her daughter. I need to research marriage records to prove that Amy, the wife in that census, is Amy the daughter of Carl Mauritz and Amy Augusta Hendrickson.

Carl Mauritz Hendrickson died in 1946 in Waterbury, Washington Vermont and is buried.

I haven’t found Amy’s death record, as yet, but I am still looking.

About

I am not one who is comfortable talking about myself but here goes. I enjoy writing, family history, and reading. I decided to do this blog because I wanted to try something new. I decided to make it a weekly blog because I wasn't sure that I could keep up with a daily one, and monthly seemed like I was writing a magazine. I think I did ok with my choices. You'll notice that there are not a lot of graphics on my site. That's because there are graphics plastered everywhere on the Internet and those sites sometimes take forever to load. This blog is a place where you can kick back, relax and be ready to be amused. At least I hope I willbamuse you. This blog is on a variety of subjects from my ficitional cat agency, the FFL, which is monthly, to instructional blogs to editorials, which are my opinions only. I admit that I don't know everything and could be wrong -- I frequently am. Now, stop reading about me and read what I have to say!
