A contact of mine in the States are asking for information regarding his grand grand parents. David Richard Jacobsson emigrated 1904 from Sweden to USA. According to Gothenburg Passanger List he was born in Linköping.

(I have not yet verified that he was the correct Anders Fredrik born 17 Oct 1859)
On EmiWeb I noticed that David Rickards brothers emigrated also to USA:
Johan Albin 21 Feb 1906, Karl Fredrik 17 Jul 1916 and Herman Emanuel 25 May 1900
(Herman Emanuel was born 2 Dec 1883 and the oldest brother)
