John Hager & Marie Höglander of Sweden - descendants in America

John Hager, aka Jöns Hagerlöf, (1837-1891) and Marie Höglander (1836-1908) immigrated from Sweden about 1870. They reportedly lived first in New Jersey, before settling in Alabama. After coming to America, they shortened their name to Hager. Of their three children that survived to adulthood, Annie, Charles & Bessie, only Charles has descendants. Those descendants are also members of the Herbert Family. Charles Hager commited suicide in 1936.

Both John and Marie had other family members that immigrated to the US. For our other immigrants from Sweden click here, and for our families back in Sweden click here, or on the menu links above.
