Sven Erik was born in Sweden, and did not emigrate to the US. His wife was Karolina Blomberg Johansdotter. They had a total of 9 children. Two sons were named Axel Henrik Theodor but both lived less than a year. We now have pictures of Sven Erik and Karolina, and their grand children thanks to our cousins in Sweden.
Sven Erik's occupation was listed as a Klensmed, which we believe was some sort of blacksmith. According to family sources he just went by the name Erik. We are still learning more about Sven Erik from his great grandchildren in Virserum and Östersund.
