Children
Nils Peter CARLSSON
Early days

Nils Peter was born on 1844-06-10 on Solliden in Efvernäs village, Kristdala. He was baptized on the 16th. (C:5, p 175)
(In US records his birth date is recorded as 1844-06-14)

Grown up and marries
In 1861 Nils Peter leaves his parents in Bråhult and moves to Risinge village to serve as dräng with the soldier and shoemaker Olof August Sandin (1831-01-26), his wife and father at the torp Sandhorfva. (AI:21, p 77 -> AI:22, p 150)
In 1862 he moves back to Bråhult village to serve as dräng with the unmarried and ofärdig (handicapped) schoolmaster Sven August Johansson (1826-08-04). This is quite close to his parent's place.  (A HFL note is here but illegible) (AI:21, p 75)
Another dräng here, Nils Petter Nilsson (1839-02-11, Döderhult) emigrates to America on 1863-03-07.
He also meets Carl Johan Bergström (Grip) who is involved with the building of a railway to Norrköping. He is the son of Nils Petter Grip (1813-10-26) and Stina Lisa Nilsdotter (1809-01-29) of Solliden, Efvernäs (AI:21, p 100)
The schoolmaster leaves to Saxtorp with wife Helena Sofia Svensdotter (1844-03-21, Kristdala) and their daughter Tilia Carolina is born there on 1869-04-24 (to AI:22, p 180)
In 1867 Nils Peter leaves for Ekekullen, a torp in Östantorp village (AI:21, p 88 to AI:22, p 275) where he marries Märta Cajsa Nilsdotter in 1867.

The family lives with the family of labourer Lars Johan Larsson, b 1837-03-13 (wife Lisa Cajsa Persdotter, 1834-01-23 and daughter Hulda Josefina Constance, b 1866-01-20). Both men are labourers on the farm Ekekullen owned by Johan Norling. Also on the same farm live a skräddare (tailor) Hultgren (1823-06-24, Fliseryd) who moved in from Oskarshamn in July 1868 and a skräddaregesäll (tailor journeyman)
Their first born, Frans Emil is born here on Christmas Eve 1867.

Emigration
These are hard years with failing harvests and sometimes even starvation. On May 14 1869 Nils Peter asks the parish priest to have a transfer certificate for his family to America. He receives that with number 66 for that year i.e. many other parishioners had made the same decision that year.
On the emigrant ships leaving from Göteborg harbour on 1869-05-21 there are about 1360 persons and at least 25 people from their home parish of Kristdala. Another 15 persons from Kristdala had left 9 days earlier. Only Nils Peter is registered on the ticket but the parish records say that his wife and son also leave on the same date. He, as most of his neighbours, state their destination as New York. This may be because that was the only place they knew about or that they did not yet have specific plans after New York.
Searching passenger lists for Nils Peter's voyage from Liverpool, England to America yields two possibilities:
The first was a N. P. Carlsson, 28 years old, male, miner, on board ship "SS City of London" that docked in New York on June 15, 1869.
Another possibility is Nils Carlsson, 29 years old, male, labourer, on board ship "SS City of Brooklyn" that docked in New York on June 21, 1869. Both were travelling alone. 
(Both have the age off by 3-4 years)

USA
Once in the USA Nils Peter proceeded to Cable, Mercer county, IL within the year of arrival. Cable and nearby Swedona is where he spent the rest of his life working his own farm. 
He was received into the Swedona Lutheran Church on May 5, 1871. The church record also indicates that Nils arrived in America in 1870 from Kristdala. He was removed from the church register on Dec 10, 1886.
Nils and Martha had four children: 
Josephina Emelia was born Sep 14, 1870 in Berlin (Swedona), IL. Baptized Sep 18, 1870 and confirmed Apr 3, 1885.
Frans Emil was born Jun 29, 1872 in Berlin (Swedona), IL. Baptized Jul 6, 1872. Note that his name is the same as a son born Dec 24, 1867 in Kristdala.
Hilma Charlotta was born 5 Jan, 1876 in Berlin (Swedona), IL. Baptized Jan 25, 1876. There is a N. P. Bergström listed in the far right column and he may have been a godfather. 
Rosa Elizabeth Constance, born Feb 8, 1878 in Cable, IL. She was baptized Mar 21, 1878.

In 1880 Nils Peter, wife Martha and their four children live in in Richland Grove Tshp, Mercer co, IL (US Census 1880).
Nils Peter was naturalized on Oct 24, 1892 in Aledo, Mercer co, Illinois. The County Court Judge was James H. Connell and the witnesses were Charles R. Rutledge and Peter Ringdall.
In 1900-1910 Nils Peter, second wife Jennie and three children, Mary, Florence and Russell still live in Richland Grove (US Census 1900, 1910)
In 1920 Nils Peter, Jennie and the son Charles live in the same place (US Census 1920).
Nils Peter died from chronic myocarditis on April 20, 1925 and was buried in Western Cemetery in Swedona (S2)
In 1930 Jennie, Charles and daughter Mary (divorced) live in the same place (US Census 1930).

Carl Johan CARLSSON
was born on Aug 25, 1846, baptized the 30th in Lilla Kulltorp under Bjälebo # 2. Godparents:
"Carl Nilsson och Brita Svensdotter, Stora Bråbo. Drängen August Svensson och pigan Stina Svensdotter, båda i Östantorp".  Birth rec. (C:6, p 11)
He changes his surname to Sjöberg in 1861/66. There is a long note in this period (very hard to read), he is said to be "evil" and punished for theft. (AI:21, p 77)
In 1866 he obtains a transfer certificate to ?? (Östantorp ?)
Sven August CARLSSON
was born on Nov 12, 1848, baptized the 19th in Bråhult. Godparents:
"Sven Svensson och Stina Andersdotter. Drängen Sven Andersson och pigan Anna Lotta Carlsdotter från Bråhult".
Birth rec. (C:6, p 41) He died on Nov 10, 1849 in Bråhult
Maria Lovisa CARLSDOTTER
was born on Sept 1, 1850, baptized the 8th in Bråhult. Godparents:
"Carl Svensson, Stina Persdotter, Drängen Nils Andersson, pigan Johanna Svensdotter från Bråhult".
Birth rec. (C:6, p 67)
In 1866 she moves to p 225 ?? (hard to read) (AI:21, p 77 -> 225) (not found)
She moves to Döderhult on Oct 11, 1872 (certif # 52)
She is registered out from Hveningehult in Döderhult parish as unmarried piga  on Sept 19, 1873 leaving for N America.
Anna Lotta CARLSDOTTER
was born on Nov 21, 1852, baptized the 26th in Bråhult. Birth rec. (C:6, p 81)
Emma Sofia CARLSDOTTER
was born on Oct 14, 1855, baptized the 21st in Bråhult. Birth rec. (C:6, p 101)
1877/81: Sjöända u Bråhult note: 
"Lysning Nr 28 (1880) afkunnad 1 gång med Nils August Sjögren fr Mörlunda och sedan på dennes begäran instäld"
It seems that she intended to marry Nils August Sjögren in 1880 but he changed his mind and moves to Mörlunda parish the same year (AI:27, p 88).
She lives with her mother at least until 1893 (see mother's notes)
Ida (Alida) Charlotta CARLSDOTTER
was born on Feb 17, 1859, baptized "Ida Charlotta" the 25th on Sjöänden farm. Birth rec. (C:6, p 123).
Some time in the late 1870's she begins to call herself Alida.
In 1877 she moves to Stensö to serve as piga on the farm of Sven Otto Nilsson (1847-09-11) (AI:27, p 88 to 505). The next year she moves to another farm (AI:28, p 505 to AI:27, p 188 (not found there - wrong note in HFL))

COMMENTS:
The Carl Nilsson family (parent family) moves around a lot and were very hard to follow.
The 1861/66 note about Carl Johan is impossible to read (except fragments) in an on line filmed copy. One must read the original book.
