I am trying to find five siblings that immigrated to the US in the early 1900's from Sweden. Three or more of them resided in Cook County, which is why I am hoping that I will get some answers here. Any information at all about any them would be very appreciated.

Anna Albertina Nilsson, born 1878. In 1917 her name is Anna Eklund, and she lives on 1416 State Street, Chicago. Deceased on 14 September 1923 in Cook County.

Johannes Gustaf Fridolf/Fritiof Nilsson, born 1880. Emigrates to the US in 1903.

Ester Maria Katarina Nilsson, born 1890. Emigrates in 1908.

Affy Gertrud Eufemia Nilsson, born 1894. Emigrates to Chicago in 1910. Returns to Sweden in 1916, bringing her younger sister to the US in 1917 under the name Alfhild G. E. Nilsson. They travel with Oscar II from Copenhagen to New York, where they arrive on May 18 1917. Their destination is their sister Anna Eklund's home in Chicago.

Agda Sjudina Viktoria Nilsson, born 1897. Emigrates in 1917 under the name Agda S. W. Nilson.
