They had a son Martin Anton Olson born 1892-11-08. He died 1960-01-11 also in Blue Island. He had no children and after his death Bengt´s mother Ada and har brothers inherited about 10000 Swedish kronor each, they were cousins.

Per August son of the tenant on the farm Skällby nr 3, Skällbylund witch i think was the biggest of the small farms i Skällby.
3. Yes, Per August was a sailor for about four years before he left for America but we don´t know anything about his ships etc. I have contacted i lokal historian and hope he can be of some help. But we know that he was a båtsman (boatman), a kind of marine soldier in the 2nd boatman company between 1883-07-25 and 1887-10-13. You can read about the Swedish allotment system in English in Wikipedia.
4. Olaus and Helena are buried in Arby graveyard but there are no gravestones.

But first I must tell you that I was excited to learn about Hilda Kristina's husband and child, Martin. It so happens that my father, Herman Olson, was instrumental in having Martin's inheritance divided among his cousins, including those in Sweden! Although I was only 9 years old when Martin died I do remember the event and that my father was involved in getting the estate settled properly!
