Gustaf Elof Carlsson Klingberg was born
on Dec 4, 1873 in parish, Närke province, the son of a
blacksmith. In the 1890's he lives at Klänkeberg in Asker
sn. This is iron industry area so one may assume that his
father worked in one of the "bruk" there.
After a few years he returns home to Klänkeberg and on Oct 1, 1902 he again leaves for Philadelphia, PA, USA, this time bringing his younger brother Per Adolf* (born Sept 22, 1875 in Asker). One must assume that he did well in Philadelphia and went back to help his brother find his fortune in the USA.
Coming later.. (S1).
The discrepancy in emigration date may have several causes. Sometimes registration was made long after they actually left - this is especially true if they did not obtain the mandatory transfer certificate from the parish office but Gustaf Elof had his certificate.
If the August Carlson you mention is the name of his father then it can be explained by him using his father's patronymic surname. That was quite common in emigrants to English speaking countries
It is uncommon to see the exact destination noted in the church books. To me this indicates that he was going to meet someone in Philadelphia - a relative ? - maybe the much older Per Johan Klingberg who went to America already in 1881 ?

The name Klingberg is a typical blacksmith's name so there are more than one family carrying that name - but this may well be worth checking since he is from the same area and time. There are several other Klingberg emigrants in the Örebro län emigration database so you can check there (on line).
Emigranten CD has many Klingberg emigrants at different times and from different places.
Looking for other Klingbergs must be selective - concentrate research to Asker and Närke area now.

|Sue's query to
Gustav Elof Karlsson was born December 4, 1873 and came to America in 1894, 1893 settling in Phila. I'm not really even sure his last name was Karlsson. We spell it Carlson now. On this death Certificate it says August Carlson, but I'm sure you are correct it doesn't work with Swedish history. He had a Brother named Karl and I'm not sure the spelling is correct. Gus married Emma Petersdotter in 1903 in Phila, PA and some of Emma's old Letters say he was from Narke. I heard he was a blacksmith from many family members. He became a Machinist here in U.S.
