There is a census for 1885 in Minnesota online at familysearch.org, and for 1895.
I found a possible for him in 1885, but there is nothing to corroborate that it is him,like a matching emigration record, etc.I don't have ancestry.com so I can't look at the original scan of the record, but if you or someone else does, here is the information: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MQFH-4C9

This is the best match I could find for their marriage record in Minnesota.You can send for it, but I have been very disappointed in the past, because there wasn't a requirement that the parents names be written in the record book.Place of marriage sometimes was, and the minister.
HENNEPIN county, Minnesota 00530442 Date: 1/18/1892 HENRYSON, JOHN PATTERSON, MATHILDA
So that makes it possible that there are church records for them.There were several Swedish churches in that area of Minneapolis, and their records sometimes listed where in Sweden the people had come from.Maybe someone at the Swedish institute could help you determine which church, from their area of residence. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you the email of someone you could contact.
Of course that marriage record does clash with what Martin Larsson had found on that 2nd emigration of Mathilda Peterson of 1895.But the parish record could be in error.
By googling Laxarby, Dalsland, I found a genealogist who is willing to do lookups in her parish records for Laxarby.email me and I will pass on her contact info.
