I have the latest years helped Diane in Australia to find her ancestors and relatives in Sweden. On the new CD Emibas I found that her great grandfather's sister with family emigrated to USA: Botilda Rosenqvist born 26 May 1853 in Västra Karup, Kristianstads län emigrated 5 July 1881 from the village Lillaryd in Västra Karup to USA together with her son John Emil born 19 Feb 1880. Her husband was Nils Pehrsson born 5 Sep 1858 in Kattarp, Malmöhus län. He emigrated 29 march 1880 to USA. They were married 29 Dec 1879. We look forward for any information to find the family and possible descendants.
Thank you,
Ingemar

Thank you all for the direct received information. The most interesting is the 1881 US Census:
Bothilde Pearson born 1853 in Sweden together with Swan living in Belmont Wisconsin.
--------------
On the CD ”Emigranten” I found also that 1st cousins to John Emil emigrated:
Hilma Elisabet Rosenqvist born 12 Dec 1883 emigrated 17 Jun 1901 from Malmö to Biggsville IL and her brothers Hjalmar Edvin Rosenqvist born 10 Dec 1881 emigrated 2 May 1907 from Gothenburg to New York together William Ferdinand Rosenqvist born 17 March 1888. At the time for emigration they lived in Angelstad, Kronobergs län but they were born in Björnkulla Kristianstads län.
Thank you in advance for any replies.

On the census of 1930 with husband, Fritz, she stated that year of immigration was 1897 for herself. (I forgot to add that on previous message)

Thank you very much Denise for all the information. I have informed the cousins in Australia about your findings. I have also a query on the discussion forum SCANGEN, a good site for Skåne genealogy See http://scangen.se/?go=english.htm
I hope we soon can find living descendants in USA.

Hi,
Thought you'd be interested to know that the name of the company was Culter Proctor Stove (not Store) Company in Peoria, Illinois, that William Rosenquist was employed by. There are several sites on the web for the company.
