The story

Botvid Larsson
was born on July 6,
1744/48 (?) in Kristdala parish. (some HFL state 1748 but birth rec. not found for 44-49) His parents were Lars Botvidsson and Carin Carlsdotter in Stora Bråbo (Botvid's death record C:3, p 325)
In 1785 he lives in Träthult with his wife Kristin (both age 38) and their son Johannis, age 3 (i.e. born ca 1882). In the record for 1793 the family still lives in Träthult but his wife Kristin is missing (dead ?). Daughter Märta, age 7, is added. (below)
On March 26, 1794 he marries again, now to Karin Andersdotter (1760-06-01) from Höckhult. They have 3 children: Lars, Carl and Cajsa, 1795 -1802.
He died of ålder (old age) on April 3, 1816.(C:3, p 325) in Humlehult and was buried on the 7th.
Kristin
was born about
1748. She was the first wife of Botvid Larsson (1744) and mother of Johannis and Märta. She died before 1793.
Märta Botvidsdotter
was born on June 6,
1786 in Träthult, daughter of Botvid Larsson (1744) and his first wife Kristin.
She was baptized on June 11. Witnesses were
Lagman (?) Petter Meurling, fru Kristina Tegner, Sven Nilsson i ..ghult, Greta i Humlenäs
Karin Andersdotter
was born on June 1,
1760 in Kristdala parish. Her father was Anders Jonsson. Birth record
Witnesses: Anders Larsson, i L Bråbo, Joh. Andersson i Systertorp, Maria Håkansdotter i Grytbäcken, V Nilsdotter i Bjälebo.
She becomes Botvid Larsson's second wife on March 23, 1794 - cont'd above (husband)
She died on Jan 14, 1845.
Katrina Svensdotter
was born on March 17, 1801, baptized March 28, in Klemnaåsen in Döderhult parish.
She moved in to
Humlehult u Systertorp in Kristdala parish in 1822 from Döderhult parish when she married 
more later.. see the husband Tunwall project
MY COMMENTS:
1  Sven Johan Nilsson and Britta Maria Carlsdotter
Sven Johan leaves in 1870 alone (consistent in HFL and border records). Britta Maria leaves with their 4 children 3 years later. In her border record her name is given as "Nelson" which may indicate that the ticket for her and the children was pre-paid in the USA by her husband (Americanised "Nilsson" is "Nelson"). She has no obvious reason to use her husband's changed name in a Swedish harbour but the records are made from the tickets and that may state his surname if he paid for it in the USA.
It was fairly common to send one family member ahead to earn the money for the ticket for the remaining family. USA provided much better opportunities to earn the money than Sweden at the time.
