Here, gathered in our beloved South Dakota, are a few members of our Williamson / Mattson Clan. Charles and Luella are to be blamed (be kind, they didn't know what they were doing). We're generally a happy bunch and somewhat intelligent (notwithstanding our tenuous grasp on reality). I'm also proud to say that most of us still have our teeth.

     In tonight's family gathering, I'd like to introduce you to our Great Grand Uncle Carl Martin Mattson.  

     Uncle Carl was born on September 21, 1863 in Fjaras, Halland, Sweden.  He died when he was either 19 or 20 in San Francisco, California in 1883.

The Parish Records of Carl's Birth

Uncle Carl sailed for California on the ship Romeo, leaving Sweden on the 28th of October 1881 when he was 17 years old, sailing through Hull, England.

Uncle Carl is number 4655

     We don't know how Uncle Carl died.  I'm guessing he was unmarried and therefore had no children.
