My 2nd great grandfather Albert Öman was born on 16 May 1856 in Håkansön near Piteå, Sweden to Johan Öman and Maria Johansdotter. He was the 9th of 10 children. He married Brita Johanna Strand on 18 December 1886, and they had 10 children, 3 of whom died before age 20. The other seven children, including my great grandfather, all emigrated to western Washington. Albert and Brita remained in Sweden, where Albert died 21 June 1929 also in Håkansön.
