My Young's came from Johnson Co. Ind to Shawnee, Osage, Lyon, & Wabaunsee Ctys, KS.
A little tidbit of my history mixed with the Cozines:
--Apprenticed, Mercer Co.KY Deed Book No. 9, page 36, dated Aug 20, 1811 shows Theophilus Hamilton apprenticing his son, "Cager" [Micajah] to Garret
Cozine to learn the art of farming.--

Query:Looking for any info on the family of Swan Peterson (b. 27 December 1832, Gårdsby, Sweden), his wife Mary Svensdotter (b. 7 May 1835, Gårdsby) and their children: Johanna (b. 5 June 1859, Furuby, Sweden), Emma Christina (b. 19 July 1861, Gårdsby). John Gustaf (b. 13 September 1864, Gårdsby) and Frans (b. 3 July 1872, Växjö, Sweden).

They were listed in the 1875 state census living in Americus township. Family lore states that Swan died fairly soon after arriving and the Mary lost her mind. It is possible that Johanna married an N Sanderson of Emporia on 14 November 1878 and that John (may have died c. 1940) married an Annie B (b. 1872, d. 1900, Toledo) and are buried in Hillside Cemetery in Chase County.

Thanks for any help that anyone might be able to give me.
