I found a couple (and the wife had the birthdate you listed) emigrating from Sweden on the Emibas CD.

Now I think I've found that same couple in the 1900 U.S. Federal Census. (Some of the kids seem to fit your Larson kids, at least somewhat.)

Note that the mother Hilma was listed as having four living children out of the six who were born to her.


I wonder if that boarder Edward Larson later became her husband. Obviously something happened to John E. Abrahamson.
