Frans August Johansson, b. 1862 Lidhult, Kronobergs Sweden, left in 1892

I'm helping one of my Swedish cousins with a relative on his father's side of the family who left for the United States.

His name was Frans August Johansson, born 26 October 1862 in Lidhult, Kronobergs lan, Sweden. He married Klara Petronella Johannesdotter on 26 December 1888, and they had two children, Emma and Noack.

He left Sweden from Goteborg in June 1892 with the destination of Chicago.

In a Swedish court decision of 12 June 1944, he was declared legally dead which stated that the date of 31 December 1910 would be used as his death date.

It is assumed that he lost touch with his family and was declared legally dead.

I have not yet found any record of him in the US, he may have Anglicized his name, any suggestions would be appreciated!
