Several of my relatives have been to Sweden but they all have lost their Swedish contacts so I am starting over again. Some Swedish relatives have been to America and I am hoping someone will recognize the locations of my relatives in USA.   Relatives in USA  have married  names of Johnson/Olson/Spatney and McClain.  Genealogy is on family tree Maker and Ancestry.com.  My grandparents came to America between 1880 and 1885, married in USA and settled in Dagus Mines/St Marys/Ridgway Pennsylvania.  This is a long shot, but I will give it a shot.

Grandfather Herman Johnson/Johnston born about 1864 possible origin Faglavik Vastra Gotaland Lan, Sverige.  DOB 1863 and DOD 1942.  His father is Solomon Johnson.  Mother not known.
Grandmother Emma Swanson  DOB Jul 14 1869 DOD 1960  Her father is Solomon Swanson and mother is Christine Clawson and a brother was Martin Swanson who lived in America.  10 children lived to adulthood and all are deceased.  I am second generation.

Thanks in advance for your help

Source for emigration records is the database EmiWeb.

This man seems to be the same. Note that Johannesson is a patronymic surname, Herman is Johannes' son. His father's name was Johannes Hansson.

Johannesson, Herman, born 1862-10-02 in  Algutstorp parish, emigrated 1882-03-30 from Algutstorp to Amerika.

This seems to be Emma's family. Note the patronymic surnames here too.

Svensson, Olof Salomon, born 1841-05-11 in Öxabäck parish, emigrated 1881--  from Öxabäck to Amerika 
Magnusdotter   Johanna Christina  1851-09-16  Holsljunga  1881--  Öxabäck  Amerika 
Olofsdotter   Emma Stina 1869-07-14 Öxabäck  1881--  Öxabäck   Amerika 
Olofsson   Sven Martin  1871-07-05  Öxabäck  1881--  Öxabäck   Amerika 
Olofsson   Sven Emil  1873-01-15  Öxabäck  1881--  Öxabäck    Amerika  (should be Frans Emil)
Olofsson   Per Johan  1876-09-16  Öxabäck  1881--  Öxabäck    Amerika 

Algutstorp and Öxabäck are both parishes in Västergötland.
