1) So age of my great grandfather (hmmm ... 4 to choose from, but based on my birth name) 2011 - 1836. My Great Grandfather would be 175 on his next birthday, 3 October, so Edward DAKIN would be 174 now. Divide it by 4, gives 43.5.
2) Rounded off to 44, I get Eric HELLSTEN. No my previous posts initially focused on Edward DAKIN, the postmaster of South Kent CT in 1872. Then my next group of posts were on Eric Adolf HELSTEN and his apprentice John CARLSON. Tombstone Tuesday this week was his father and mother's tombstone: Eric HELLSTEN and Lovisa Charlotta ROBBERT. Last Saturday was Surname Saturday and I focused on the HELSTEN/HELLSTEN name.
3) Eric HELLSTEN, was born 2 March 1786 in Sweden, died 24 March 1839 in Uppsala, Domkyrkoförsamling, Sweden. On 6 January 1815 in Norrtälje, Stockholm, Sweden he married Lovisa Charlotta ROBBERT. She was born 21 August 1795 in Norrtälja, Stockholm, Sweden and died 25 November 1863 in Uppsala, Sweden at age 53. He had thirteen children. When he died, his youngest was 4 months old and the oldest was 24. I don't have a lot of information on Eric that I haven't already written about.
