About Adam Eberhardt von Krassow (finns inte med här heller)

the family Von Krassow nr 157, was introdused 1707 and last member died 1735

(Adam Eberhardt is not mentioned in Mo. 157)

““When Elise went back to Sweden with the girls, and eventually back again to the US one of the girls stayed behind in Sweden and married there. That was Josephine, as she was called, the second oldest child. Her name appears to have actually been (Adolphina Fredericka......) with Josephine as one of the middle names. […] She married a man we believe to be also her uncle, (Adam) Eberhardt von Krassow, who went by Eberhardt. Family lore has it that she married her uncle because her guardian was squandering her money and marrying the uncle would keep it in the family. Josephine and Eberhardt themselves immigrated to the U. S. in 1898 through Denmark. I am descended through them, all on a female line. Their daughter, (Anna) Elisabeth Concordia Elivra Edith....von Krassow Coleman was my great grandmother, who I had the privilege to know into my 20s, and who lived to see her great-great grandchild, my son. She went by Elizabeth, the s changing to a z at some point.”
