Your email address seems to indicate you are in Sweden but the Swedish information isn't complete, so more needs to be found, perhaps, before going to wherever she emigrated in the U.S. Yes, the bouppteckning is a wonderful source of information but the parish record information is necessary too.Researchers trying to find a connection in Sweden may have trouble recognizing this person without more details.
I looked in the 1890 Swedish Census to try to find more about her. None of the Hilma Charlottas born 1876 were born in Mjölby parish, but there is a Mjölby kommun. I think I "might" have found the right person. She was born in Högby parish and there is a Högby parish in Mjölby kommun. Could you confirm she is the right person or correct/add to this information if you can?

d. Hilma Charlotta f. 1876 in Högby
d. Sigrid Dorothea f. 1880 in Högby
I don't immediately find her on the Emigrant CD. Maybe she emigrated with a family member. I see a possibility for Axel on the cd but he emigrated alone to Chicago.

Following them through the parish records should be helpful in determining when and from where they left for "Amerika".
