I am seeking information about my great grandfather and mother and two of their children who were born in Ford County. My grandmother and her parents immigrated from Sweden to Paxton in 1881. Great grandfather was Otto PIERSON. His wife (Cissa or Sissa or Sipa or Lizzie) PIERSON. My grandmother is Ellen (Elin)Pierson Yordy. The other children are Ida M PIERSON NOBLE dob 1881 and Victor E (F) PIERSON dob 1886. Otto was an inmate in the Ford Co. poorhouse in the 1900 census and he may have died in 1905. I hope you may be able to assist me in finding more information regarding my Swedish ancestors. Thank you for your good works! Gwen
