Note: She came as a maid to Arbelunda in 1881. A short time she was also a maid in Tjurl�sa (Norrby). She came back home in 1882. She moved to Persn�s in 1883, and she emigrated to America (Minnesota), 25 July 1889(?). [Translated from notes by Alma Maria's granddaughter, forwarded to me by Kjell Oscarson 11/28/05] "Emma came to America by herself. She landed at the Battery in New York Harbor. She was planning to go to Chicago to be with relations and she (like many other unattached women) didn't know much English. The most any of them knew was "yes" and "alright." This got them into trouble. A saloon keeper in need of girls persuaded amny of the girls to come into his place for a meal and a chance to clean up after the long boat ride. Travel in steerage often did not allow people to bathe during the entire trip. A man across the street was told of what was going on and came over to get the women out of the saloon. This upset the saloon keeper who was left standing at the door shaking his fist at the group. Infant Mortality Adolph and Emma had a total of 13 children. The 5 who are not mentioned here died in infancy and are buried in the front yard." [Genealogy notes from Art Beattie, received 5/14/08]
