Godfathers and godmothers: Pastor Nils Grentzelius in Malexander (E), the crofter Johan Kindahl in Månhult and his wife Maja Stina Andersson, a maid by the name of Anna Lisa Magnusdotter from Ämtefall. Matilda Kristina lived in her parents' home in Månhult and later on in Örsebo. She married Karl August Johansson from Skälleryd, V.Harg (E) 1871-03-30. They became farmers at her father's estate in Örsebo, where they stayed for six years. Later they moved to Someke in Tidersrum, which also was owned by Stina's father Anders. There they stayed for six years until 1880 and then they sold their property by auction in order to emigrate to America. When they were about to start for USA with their big family, Karl August's brother, Nils Johan, persuaded them to stay in Sweden. He was a farmer on a big property by the of name Selesjö and alerted them not to travel with that small children. They had to buy equipment again in order to be able to farm again, but Someke now was farmed by another farmer. In March 1880 they moved to Resta, Stora Mellösa (T). Stina's father, Anders Danbom, died on the 10th of February, 1882, and they moved back to the farm in Örsebo, where they stayed over the summer. Stina's mother, Stina Månsdotter-Danbom, now wanted to go with them to USA, since all her children already lived there. Anders Danbom had during his life-time never wanted to leave Sweden. They travelled from Sweden on the 4th of September, 1882 and arrived at Stanton, Iowa, on the 28th of September, 1882. Their youngest child, the daughter Emma Emilia, was born on the 11th of November, 1882. At first they lived at a place 10 km north from Stanton, where they didn't farm but Karl worked as carpenter at the construction of the new Lutheran Mamrelund Church in Stanton. On the 1st of March, 1884, they moved to an estate containing 80 acres which they leased. It was situated about 10 km west and 10 km south from Stanton. In March 1890 they moved to Charley J. Danbom's property and lived with them in same house for more than 4 years. Karl and Matilda later bought a farm on 40 acres 10 km west from Stanton and built their houses, which the moved into in 1894. Stina Månsdotter stayed at their house until she passed away in 1897. Now they had seven children. After a while there were some big changes for the family. Karl, Matilda and their sons Charley and Frank and the daughter Hulda stayed on the farm, but in 1919 they all moved to Turlock in California, where their son August already was. Karl and Matilda stayed by him the rest of their life. Hulda took care of August's children after that his wife Amanda died in 1919.
