Olaf Weedman immigrated to the United States from Sweden in 1855 and settled in Copley Township, Knox County near Galesburg, Illinois. Born 1821 in Ockelbo, Sweden. He apparently married in Illinois and raised his family there.

Descendants of Olaf and Brita (Andersdotter) Weedman are found in Illinois, Kansas, Montana, and Texas.

Olafhad three brothers, PeterJohn and Jonas or Janas. We are aware of descendents of Jonas and John but not of Peter at this point.

A number of people interested in this particular line of the Weedman family are now doing active research. One has a Weedman - Swedish origins home page. If interested, please contact Nick Weedman as shown below and we will forward mail to the person doing that research. Later, a link to the site may be established if she gives permission. To contribute information on these families, to learn of other researchers, or to make inquiries, please email Nick Weedman.
