LÅNGSTRÖM/LONGSTROM * Searching for info on, Magnus Michael Långström/Longstrom. He was in Silverton, San Juan County living in 1909. He is in the miners union dues book in 1909 as Magnus Lunden. He came to Silverton in 1906 at 16 years of age from Bullaren Sweden. He may have changed his name. There has been some discussion that he used Longstrom, or Armstrong. I believe the Lunden is just what the person who wrote the name thought he said.?? His brother was Carl Långström and he changed his name to Longstrom. He is in the miners book as Lungstrom. Contact: Jerry Longstrom (updated email 11/2002)
