Has brother Johan August Nilsson 1862-1945 Perth Amboy, NJ.

Possibly a brother Anders born 1867 and a sister Emilie born 1872

Oljehult Blekinge Sweden is where Clara was from.

In my family searching, I have found that before 1901 ? she would have been Clara Nilsdotter, not Nilsson.

Unmarried woman only became xxxxxson once married.  My great grandfather was Olaf Nilsson, his sister was Anna Nilsdotter.

After 1901, this Swedish custom was dropped and all children kept family name.
