Re: Eric Augusta Erickson
Johanna DID have children named Simon (Erik Simon, I think) and another Erik too. They left with her in 1910 and if you study the several posts I made, you will see at least one and maybe both of them (I can't remember.) in the 1900 Swedish Census.
You should be able to figure out the ages of these people when they came to the U.S. since Emibas had full birthdates.
As I said in one post, I think that Simon is your Sam. Simon may have Americanized his name to Sam. At any rate, without knowing when Sam was born, there is no way to verify my theory.
I posted the parents and siblings of both Johanna and Erik August in one of the posts. Perhaps you didn't see them.
Compare the ship manifests to the other information I provided. That should tell you that those children belonged to Johanna and her husband.
At any rate, questions about these people belong on the Sweden forum, and use the link I provided so that the helpers there won't have to repeat the same searches.
