Pono and Lois,
Thank you for your quick replies. I'm glad I didn't go through the
death records because the scanned books don't go that far!

Emma is my great-grandmother's sister and her story is a sad one. She
married August Edlund, who left her in Sweden and went to America in 1889.
She was expecting their third child when he left. The two youngest children
died as young children. The surviving son, Arvid, wrote to my grandfather,
his cousin Henry. I have a copy of a letter he wrote in Dec. 1897, saying
they hadn't heard from his father and didn't know where he was. I didn't
realize that his father had gone to America when Arvid was only 3 years old.
Household records show Emma as married to smith August Edlund, who went to
North America in 1889, and finally say she became a widow in 1913.
