They emigrated together in 1891and came to South Bend.
Jennie was 17 years old and in Sweden she had been working as a maid.

  1. It didn't take them long to be a welcome part of the South Bend community. It must have been a lovely wedding to have had so many guests and nice gifts.

  2. Yes, I would have loved to see a photo of the wedding! Anyway, I am very happy to have got the notice from the newpaper!
