About John Olsson

Johan Olsson aka John Billstrom, merchant seaman:

Carlene wrote" John Olson was Ida's "baby" brother. He was an infant (perhaps born after she arrived in Boston) when She left Sweden but she always kept in touch. He was a merchant sailor and for something of import was "given" a name by the King, Billstrom, which he sometimes used. (Daddy[Carl H] thought the honor was for participating in some kind of rescue crew.) At one time he was 1st mate on a freighter in the western Pacific and brought he silk parasols from Japan and the South Pacific, "tiger' cowrey shells and a quite large one that Carlene still has and a slightly smaller one that Nan has [to Ida when he visited her]."
