I was at Swenson looking for a Swede at Ogema. I didn't find him but happened across these Finns and so, like an automaton, I focused upon them:)

This image added info: husband arrived from Lappfj in 1898, wife from Vasa in 1899 and each from Prentice in 1898 and 1899 respectively.
They married June 9 1901 and he died Sep 11, 1937. She died Oct 20, 1933 *the 0 was written oddly so that digit maybe be incorrect.
Excepting the last 4 kids, everybody was dropped in 1940 and 1942.

OK, the above 2 posts were for 1st Lutheran in Ogema. When I could not find my Swede, I went to the baptist churches.
I found these two from Finland:

Herman Söderback and his wife (unnamed per Baptist church style in those days:)

She was born 22 2 1862 in "Parton, Finland"
He was born in 1850 and from Wasa Finland. Arrival date could be 1894 or maybe that's when he joined. I can' be certain on that.

No other information is available.
