Shared note
Johan blev John i Canada. According to note in Parish record AIIa:4 page 441 he moved to Canada 7 June 1907. According to Sköldinge Parish record AIIa:3 page 39 he was born 5/4 1875 i Trehörningsjö. Born outside wedlock his mother is Maria Josefina Johansdotter. No note about his father. He seems to be born in Trehörningsjö parish but his mother lived and worked in Gideå parish at Flygsjö. Interesting to note that there is a Wikman family in Flygsjö but there are no notes about anyone of them being pointed out as the father to Johan Wilhelm. He moves to Trehörningsjö 1876 with his mother when she marries Olof Englund and initially they live in Karlsviken but then move on to Långvattnet where they settle. In the house examination Trehörningsjö AI:3 on page 132 we find him with his mother and half siblings and this is where his surname Wikman turns up for the first time but without explanation. 1893 he moves to page 30 which is Kantsjö in the same record book. According to Trehörningsjö parish record AIIa:1a page 72 he leave Kantsjö and move to Arnäs parish 29 Oct 1896. He there works for Per Olof Wikman born 1853 in Gideå. 1899 he moves again and this time to Luleå. About his date of birth according to the birth record he was born 4 April 1875 in Trehörningsjö, when he moved from Gideå to Trehörningsjö with his mother in 1876 the minister wrote 5 April instead and this date followed him for the rest of his life. I use 4th since it is noted down closest to the actual time of his birth and most likely to be correct.
