About Kerstin Olsen

From http://familypedia.wikia.com/wiki/Portal:Brimberry_family_history/Ancestry_of_Mary_Andersson :

Olle Paulson and his wife Kerstin, who were Mary Anderson's paternal grandmother's parents, were born in Sweden; however it is uncertain when Olle arrived on the Delaware and whether he was the son of an immigrant named Paul or Päl (its Swedish form) or came by himself as a young adult. The first mention of him in surviving records is a patent dated 13 Feb. 1667/8 which was issued to him and Thomas Jacobsson for "Bread & Cheese Island", located in the Christina River west of Christina. The 1671 census identified him as "Clicker Olla," indicating that he was then the "klorckare" or parish clerk at the Swedes' church at Crane Hook. By 1684, he had moved to a 200-acre tract at Feren Hook on the south side of Christina River closer to Christinga. He died between 1693 and the end of 1696 when widow Paulson was listed as owner of the above property. She was still a communicant at Holy Trinity church as late as 23 May 1726. Six of their children have been identified: 1. Paul Paulson, married Elisabeth Lemmens, daughter of Hendrick Lemmens 2. Britia Paulson, married Eric Anderson (Mary Anderson's paternal grandparents,#4-5) 3. Olof Paulson, Jr. 4. Peter Paulson 5. Kerstin Paulson 6. Maria Paulson
