JOHAN ERIC DANIELSON (ERIXON)
1860-1940 ( Wife unknown)

John Eric Danielson (Erixon) lived in his later years in Åled (pronounced O-laid) which is about 15 miles East of Halmstad on the Denmark Straits.
During this time John Eric Danielson changed his name to ERIXON, (reason unknown)
Here his children were born. His children were given the first name of Johan and went by their middle names:
1. Johan Stinnus Erixon
2. Johan Alexus Erixon
3. Johan Irannius Erixon
4. JOHAN VITUS ERIXON
5. Johan Harold Erixon

Concerning the sons names, tradition indicates the sons disliked all their middle names ending in "us". The night before Harold was to be baptised and officially named, the older sons broke into the church and changed Harold's name leaving off the "us" ending.
The next day during the ceremony the priest read Harold's name and the "old man" nearly had a stroke and went into a rage.
However, it had been officially declared and there was nothing to be done about it. Harold it was!.
