Found him in the Swedish church records via ArkivDigital:

1880-1891 Congregation Records, in Håkenäs: Piteå landsförsamling (BD) AI:12a (1880-1891) Image 494 / page 376 (AID: v138611.b494.s376, NAD: SE/HLA/1010154)

1892-1899 Congregation Records, in Raknäs: Piteå landsförsamling (BD) AI:13g (1892-1899) Image 155 / page 2796 (AID: v138623.b155.s2796, NAD: SE/HLA/1010154)

1900-1913 Congregation Records, in Raknäs: Piteå landsförsamling (BD) AIIa:1i (1900-1913) Image 1690 / page 3361 (AID: v138634.b1690.s3361, NAD: SE/HLA/1010154)

1913-1929 Congregation Records, in Raknäs: Piteå landsförsamling (BD) AIIa:2h (1913-1929) Image 1460 / page 2939 (AID: v194281.b1460.s2939, NAD: SE/HLA/1010154)

According to the above records, on 8 Feb 1890 he married wife Anna Matilda Hedqvist (b. 5 Jun 1864, d. 23 Aug 1891). On 23 Feb 1896 he married second wife Matilda Berggren (b. 18 May 1858). One daughter from his first marriage, Anna Viktoria (b. 21 Jan 1891) and one daughter from his second marriage Sonja Astrid Matilda (b. 28 Sep 1902, d. 30 Oct 1902).

In the last Congregation Record above, his death is listed on 12 Oct 1913.

Looks like my transcription of "Raknås" would be better corrected to "Roknäs", which is on the fjörd just west-northwest of Piteå.

True about Roknäs.

Also interesting that after working as a factor (a sort of book-keeper, I think) he was for a time the owner of a sawmill. A small, local one, I imagine - certainly not one of the big factories But anyway, he must have done fairly well.

Interesting! It would be interesting to discover how he made the leap from bookkeeper to sawmill owner. That's the sort of economic/social advancement we tend to see more often in the New World, at least, in the 19th century.

Seems that timber runs in your family, Erik.
