    Default From a Swedish descendant in Texas

    I hope you find this interesting. I am a name sake and great great grandson of Swen Jaensson, also known as Swante Palm.

    He and his nephew did a lot for the Swedish community that moved to Texas in the 19th century.

    The Swenson family is still big in ranching and runs one of the remaining BIG ranches left in this state
