Helena Lovisa was born in Sweden, and immigrated with her husband and first four children in 1880. She only appears in one Federal Census in 1880, but there are mentions in the Jamestown City Directories. It lists her as "keeping house." According to Swedish records she married John Peter on 18 May 1870 in Kalmar, Hjorted, Sweden. Except for a brief stay on Colfax Street, next to her brother-in-law Nels Henric, she appears to have lived at 32 Jones Street till her death in 1897.
We don't know much more about her.
She had a fairly short life of 55 years, 1 month, and 20 days. She is buried in the family plot in Lakeview Cemetery.
