Lungren, Jonas and son Peter.


Adelaide, South Australia
Hello all

I do not know much at all about Peter LUNGREN.

First info is from his Marr. Cert. on 2 Feb 1867 in Auburn, South Australia when he marries Hannah NINNES at the Bible Christian Chapel and signs himself as Petter LUNGREN. He states that his father is Jonas LUNGREN. Peter would have been born around 1831 - where I do not know but suggest Sweden as a person from West Australia of that name and time frame was traveling to Sweden (note in a newspaper).

Peter LUNGREN's death cert says he was 61 and that he died near Wallaroo, but that his residence was Clare, both in South Australia. His occupation was that of shepherd.

Any suggestions and help greatly appreciated.

Possible, age a bit different to your estimate..

Quick look in Trove, just a few bits when he went missing in 1887, no arrival leaping out :rolleyes:

Can't see him listed in the National Directory of SA 1867 either..
