About Anna Margareta Sjöman

"Before his Niagara trip, Kalm thus spent the winter of 1749/50 at Raccoon [later renamed as "Swedesboro", located in New Jersey], working on his materials. Important things happened in his personal life as well: he married. Raccoon was the home of Anna Margareta Sjöman, the widow of Johan Sandin, who had been the pastor of the Swedish colony there. Sandin had died the previous winter, and on New Year's Day 1750 Kalm married the young widow. Anna had a daughter, then less than two years old, from her marriage to Sandin, and the young couple also had a son of their own two years later. The couple's return home was held up for several months after Kalm's return from Niagara. The stormy return voyage to London began in February 1751. Kalm did not arrive in Stockholm until late May. Before him lay the move to Turku as Professor of Economics."
