Oscar Reinhold Moller was the great grandfather of my dear friend Heidi.

When Oscar Reinhold Moller was born on July 16, 1869, in Stockholm, Sweden, his father, Adolf Moller, was 24 and his mother, Catharine “Benedicta” Tilly Moller, was 23. He married Elizabeth Augusta Cassely on April 30, 1890, in Boston, Massachusetts. They had seven children in 18 years. He died on January 10, 1942, in Goffstown, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, at the age of 72, and was buried there.

In the 1900 U.S. census he lived at 46 Marion Street, Medford Ward 5, Middlesex, Massachusetts.  His occupation was cigar maker. He listed his immigration year as 1880. He states that he was born and Sweden and so were both of his parents. His wife Elizabeth was born in Canada, but her parents had both been born in Scotland.
