  • 'JoeAnd41':

    Could you kindly contact me--I can't figure out on this site how to send you an e-mail directly. The reason I'm contacting you is in relation to Melvin Ernest Forsberg (adopted son of Franz Emil and Brita Andersdotter Forsberg).

    I believe Melvin was born as 'Carl Eric Parson' (or Pearson), son of Olof Frederick and Gerda Olivia Anderson Parson or Pearson.

    Frederick and Gerda were married 29 Jun 1911 in Salt Lake City. Gerda's death certificate states that she died 26 Jun 1913 of 'enclampsia' (convulsions brought on by high blood pressure while pregnant) and a fall from a porch.

    Melvin's LDS baptism occurred on 28 May 1921 in the Murray 2nd Ward. That record lists his parents as Olof F. Pearson Forsberg and Gerda O. Anderson. In the record his name is Erick Melvin instead of Carl Eric, the name he was blessed under in the 32nd Ward, Pioneer Stake.

    Recently, one of Gerda's relatives in Sweden has asked me to help track down information about Gerda, her husband, and son(s). The Swedish relative is under the impression there were two sons--Edwin and Melvin. The relative thought that a Forsberg family adopted the two boys. So far in my research, I have only been able to locate information about one son.

    I have not been successful in tracking Frederick Parson/Pearson in U. S. census records, 1920-1940. The information about him on www.new.familysearch.org states that he died on 5 Jan 1945 in Salt Lake, but I haven't been able to verify that date with either a newspaper obituary or a burial record.

    Do you know what happened to Melvin Forsberg? Did he marry and have a family? Do you know when he died?

    Whatever further information you can provide would be a great help to this research. My name is Jay G. Burrup, and my e-mail is: burrupfam@aol.com I will look forward to your reply! Thanks!

Office of Vital Records and Statistics Creation Date: 1943-01-28 Description: This is a death certificate for FRANZ EMIL FORSBERG who died 28 January 1943 in Salt Lake County, Utah Subjects: Death--Proof and certification--Utah. Your tombstone stands neglected and alone. The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone. It reaches out to all who care. It is too late to mourn. You did not know that I exist. You died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone. Our heart contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled those many years ago. Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so. I wonder as you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew That someday I would find this spot and come to visit you. Author Unknown
