The Ericson Family


(Spelling of the family name above is one of three I've found.  Swedish patrynomics would dictate that the name be spelled Erickson.   I have also found family members spelling the name Ericsson.   Below I am using the common spelling shown above, except in cases where I have evidence of alternate spellings.  This appears to be the most widely-used of the names.)
