1891 Olof Andersson is registered on page 1195[11][17] called Särskild förteckning enl. Kungl. förordning - my understanding is a page for people who has "disappeared".

1903 jan 29 we have a Erik Rosen moving to New York together with a brother Olof Rosen who already is living in North America a guess is that Erik Rosen is Olof brothers son who has had a "tough" time with divorcing his wife, making another women pregnant and get 2 children that he is not taking responsibility for.... [18][19]
