Hilda Kristina Petersson, born 1885, October 07 in Urshult (Kronobergs county, Sweden). The family moved to Gårdstånga (Malmöhus county, Sweden) in July 1909 (from Urshult). Her parents were Peter Johan Bengtsson (born 1857) and Emma Christina Magnidotter (born 1864).

According to the the passenger list from the ship Ivernia she arrived in Boston December 10, 1909. According to the the passenger list she was going to an Uncle, Joseph Ljungqvist (Youngquist) in Nebraska.

He married September 3, 1887 with Margretha Bergdahl (April 5, 1855 Wiksjö) and had a son, Carl Alfred Theodore (November 17,1888 - December 11, 1888). He emigrated to N.Amerika March 10, 1889 and seems to have traveled alone,. Apparently Margretha Bergdahl went to North America shortly after Joseph. Attestens date 7/9-1889. Hilda was living with the Younquist´s in Nebraska 1910 according to the 1910 census.
Joseph was born 1863, March 19 in Urshult (Kronobergs county, Sweden).
Jospeh must changed his last namne (from Magnusson to Ljungkvist (Youngquist)) but I don´t know when. Perhaps in the USA?
He´s mentioned as a contact to Hilda in the passenger list and that she lives with him 1910 (according to 1910 census), where she also referred to as his niece. Though his surname was previously Magnusson and we followed him in the Swedish church records and found that he had married Margaret Bergdahl and they both emigrated in 1889.
Does anyone know what happend to Hilda Petersson after 1910? Did she get married, children and so on? Where did she go or did she stay in Nebraska?
