Charrlin Family Photos

Andrew J Charrlin.....founding father of the Charrlin clan.

Andrew    (Anders) was born July 26, 1840 in Vaxtorg parish in Karr, Halland, Sweden,   father was  Jons Larsson and mother was Bengta Larsdattor.    As is the norm in Sweden and other  Scandinavian countries,  children took the name of the fathers first name as their last…….so Andrew was born as Anders Jonsson., because he was  Jons  son !! 

Andrew had three brothers,   Sven,  Nils,  and Lars and two sisters,  Lusse, and Anna.

  Mystery # 1 is in the process, we now know his given name, but still not why or when he changed his name, nor why Sven changed his also.   I assume it was because Jonsson was such a common name.

Andrew and Anna had seven boys and one girl who died a birth.  The boys are John,  Albert, Julius, Fred, Henry, Vernette and Ole.
