Nils and Maria are my 5th great grandparents, being the parents of Lars Magnus Nilsson Stålberg (1842-?), who was the father of Anna Elizabeth Stålberg (1869-1918), who was the mother of Wilhelm Percy Wellin (1895-1977), who was the father of Alice Lucretia Wellin (1916-1985), who married Theodore Alexander Lapham (1910-1955) and was the mother of Margaret Ann Lapham (1936-2004), who married William Kernan (LIVING) and was my paternal grandmother.
