Anderson,Elisabeth=Lisa Kristina Hanson?

I'm searching for relatives in Canada OR USA:It's about Elisabet Anderson from Jamtland in Sweden. I have reason to believe that she was born as Lisa Kristina Hanson in the small village Klovsjo in Jamtland,in 1891 6th of january. BUT she was a fosterchild to my mothers uncle & aunt Jons and Agnes Andersson in the village MO, parrish Berg(Hoverberg) in Jamtland.
This Elisabeth/Lisa left Sweden in 1910, 8th of may, for USA.
She was married Anderson I believe,But sorry to say I don't know about the husband att all.They had three children: Hugo, Sigurd, and Agnes? (I'm not absolutely sure of the girls name)
They all visited Sweden in the 1920 or 1930, I heard of my mother, maybe they planned to stay -but of some reason I don't know about, they didn't. My mother thought they planned to buy a farm, but they didn't, and returned to USA or maybe Canada?
I remember names like Minnesota, Seattle, Edmonton in Alberta, etc.. from christmas-cards they used to send my grandmother.So they must have been moving around.I don't know were they settled down for god.Maybe in California or? The contact ended around 1950... maybe because Elisabeth/Lisa died ; so the old folks said.
BUT there must be grandchildren, great grand children knowing about this as they heard it from their oldfolks. It was quite a long journey then for the children of Elisabeth/Lisa and they must have remembered it for the rest of their lifes and talked about it.
If You, reading this,have heard about this in your family,and know it's about your old folks,contact me! It would be nice to hear from you as we are of the same family-roots.
Or maybe someone know about this family?
I'll be waiting for information.
