Thank you Tim for looking into this for me and for the ideas to follow. Unfortunately I do not know the name of the ship that they came in on. On Great Grandpa Frank's death certificate (I have a copy) it states that he was born in Sweden, as were his parents. No other information with that as far as where in Sweden. The same is noted on his marriage certificate (just Sweden). Recently a family member gave me a copy of the Declaration of Intent, which was filed in Clearfield County, PA, for Grandpa Frank. Some of this is unreadable but it does state that the declaration was made in writing on October 19, 1896. I have searched online for Albert's with no luck. When I search passenger lists I either find one or the other name but neither together on the same ship. Family members tell me that they came together on the same ship. I'm not giving up. Thanks again.
