Carl Sundblad is listed as dead in 1845, the death book is missing. The Sundblads lived at the property #89 at Stora Torget in Arvika, which for a short period was named Oskarsstad. In 1856 the family moved to #60 and in 1859 to # 1/2 68, which was owned by "the Wholesaler Jönsson in New Jork". This is probably Carl Johan Jönsson who Theresia marries acc. to banns 1859-06-19. Note of the banns is found in the HFL, the marriage book is missing for this period.
Theresia is listed for emigration to New York 1864-09-19 together with the sister Amalia Maria, married to the factory book-keeper Janne Maule from Munkfors in Ransäter parish, Värmland.
I have unfortunately not found any trace of Carl Johan Jönsson. We are grateful for all information on the emigrants and their fortunes and descendants.
