I found one birth on Hiski for an Emelia Salonen born Jyväskylä 1.7.1883 in Heiskan village, Syvälahden Kattila-ahosta 208 to trpm Matti Salonen and Karolina Mikontytär. This is the only one I found searching with year span 1880-1885. Don't know if this is the correct Emelia.
I don't know if the Emelia I found going to Fitchburg in 1903 is yours. I'm beginning to doubt it. I think it's just a case of same name.
Attached is Oskar's birth record from churchbook.

If your searches take you to the southern area of Sweden, a good and free site to visit is DDSS.nu. It was a great resource for me when doing my wife's genealogy.
