Sunday's Obituary ~ Carl Magnus Carlson

From the Chicago Daily News, Monday February 12, 1945;

"CARLSON - Carl M. Carlson, Feb 11, late of 2617 N. Seminary av., beloved husband of Laura (nee Olson), fond father of Florence Quinlan and Edward, brother of Hannah Flood and the late Maria Pearson and John. Funeral Wednesday, Feb. 14, at 1 p.m., from funeral home, 2056-58 Belmont av., to Acacia Park Cemetery."

Carl's sister Johanna is my great-grandmother. She and Maria and Carl were close throughout their lives. I know very little about John except for the clue above that he died before Carl and that all four siblings immigrated to Chicago from Börstil (which was later renamed Östhammar), Uppsala, Sweden.
