  of 48

Karl Johan "August" Karlsson married Carolina Susanna "Susan" Nilsdotter.

They resided at Bredshult, Vimmerby landsförsamling, Kalmar county, Sweden

Children of "August" and "Susan":

Axel Ernfrid "Hugo" Karlsson,
Johan "Edwin" Karlsson,
"Ernst" Wilhelm Karlsson,
Karl "Albert" Karlsson

In 1913, at age 19, Edwin made his first trip to the United States where he joined his brother Hugo.

In 1923 Ernst and Albert died in a drowning-accident when they, together Karl August Gottfrid Fransson of Kvafhult, Appelkullen, Lönneberga, were fishing on Lake Gissen. Apparently a storm came up and the boat overturned and they all drowned. They drowned 1923, August 18.

Edwin and Hugo returned home for the funeral of their brothers. Edwin would only make two more trips to Sweden, once in 1937 and again in 1940 to settle his father's estate.
