About Gunnar Mattson

New Sweden in America By Carol E. Hoffecker pg 174 ....Per Gunnarsson Rambo, an ancestor of a very large family, also arrived with this expedition. We know that he came from Hisingen, outside Goteborg. He married Brista Matsdotter of Vasa in Ostebottne (Finland), who probably arrived with a later expedition A third passenger was Sven Gunnarson, the ancestor of the well-known Virginia family Swanson or Swansonville. 'Per Gunnarsson's birthplace is unknown, and Amandus Jonshon's suggestion that he was a brother of Per Gunnarsson Rambo is quite unlikely...

I am beginning to think that the assumption of Gunnar Matsson Rambo and Anne Rambo (born Paulsdotter) or an unknown wife as being the parents of Sven Gunnarson is very bad one on a part of someone. by the above. statement I have found.

My believe from several trees one being Koller/Rhoads of Southeastern Pennsylvania:Information about Sven Gunnarson that he is the FIRST Rambo of this line in Americal and that his ancestry and parentage is UNKNOWN - Judith Elaine McKee Burns
