This appears to be the family found by Susan, even though the father's month and year of birth are off a bit.(Censuses are not known for great accuracy.) The mother was also not a Haglund, but perhaps her family (or at least father) used that name at some point. *

Note that this man didn't yet use Palmquist. It was quite common for Swedes to leave using their patronymic (son/daughter) names. Then they would often take a surname after they arrived. This appears to be what happened in this case.

Emibas CD:

Emibas was made from registrations with the Swedish parish to go to a foreign country. It is about 75% complete.

You will notice a son named Olof in some of the censuses checked by Susan and that son is about the right age to be this Olof.

You still probably need to check the Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center, since Emibas is only about 75% complete. They have a website but their extensive collection of records is NOT online. You need to go there to research or pay them to research for you. Many of us have solved difficult problems there.
