He may have immigrated in 1880 but we know that Anna Charlotta came to the U.S. in 1882. For some reason they returned to Sweden and came back again in 1886.

They lived in Troy NY until 1891 or so and then moved to Little Falls, Minnesota. Alfred died in 1900 and left Anna with 8 kids; the oldest being 18. The youngest child was born after Alfred died, in June of 1900. She died when she was about 3. Her name was Olive.
