The couple was married in Gustav Adolf parish on Jan, 1 1866 and had, in addition to the children mentioned on your website, a son Johan Vilhelm (Dec, 12 1866-Mar, 13 1867) and a daughter Matilda Karolina (Jan, 20 1877-Jan, 17 1880) and the family left Sweden in April 1882. Their second daughter Johanna Maria, who also is on the webpage, was born in Sweden (Mar, 15 1880) too.

John Alfred Blide (b 1855) was the son of Johannes Andersson Blid (1818-1885) and Anna Svensdotter (1819-) and was called Johan Alfred in Sweden. His wife, Anna Katarina (Kajsa) was the daughter of Daniel Persson (1822-1887) and Katarina Persdotter (1829-). In May 1887, Katarina Persdotter also emigrated to the US together with her son August Danielsson (b Mar, 11 1872), her daughter Katarina Danielsdotter (b Sep, 8 1865), son-in-law (married to Katarina D) Johan Håkansson (b Nov, 11 1862) and grandson Einar Sigfrid (b May, 30 1886), but I have no further information about them, unfortunately.
