I see in your earlier email that there is a 3rd brother, Carl William, that emigrated. He
didn't settle in the same city as the others so nothing is known about him. More
research by my friends will be needed to track him down.
Frederick owned a jewelry store and watch repair business in Brainerd, MN, so it's
nice to see that someone was able to use their Old World skills here! Oftentimes
immigrants ended up farming or working in the local logging, mining, or railroad
Frederick's wife-to-be immigrated in 1872 and their first child was born by 1874, so
he is likely to have emigrated in the 1870-1873 time frame. And how many watchmakers are
emigrating? Maybe the age is off but I'm convinced this is him.
Thanks for your efforts at trying to track down a Swedish emigration record. I guess
there's nothing there.
This help on this list is great!!

The Assyria passenger list of 10 Aug 1871 says F G Sundberg (?) is a watchmaker, but his
age is three years off.
I'll see if I can find any of the other Swedish passengers.
