1920 U.S. Federal Census:

This appears to be the same family. They were living in Tilden, Marquette County, Michigan, on 31 January 1920 when this census was enumerated. The first son was born in Sweden so the year of immigration listed for the parents can't be correct.

More can be seen on the actual handwritten census record but the following is an Ancestry.com transcription of part of the record.
