Forsman family from Forsheim Sweden to Texas, Colorado

My gggrandfather, Johan Magnus Forsman (b. 1846 Sweden d. 1888 Texas) emigrated in 1881 from Sweden with his wife Matilda Karolina Lundblad. They had 5 children: L Wilhelm Magnus, Malcolm, Mary Anna Caroline, Goran August Benjamin "Ben", and Regina "Ina". They seem to have moved straight to Texas. After Johan's death in 1888, the 4 younger children were put in an orphanage in St. Louis MO. Later LW Magnus, the eldest son, who had stayed in Sweden, came over to join his siblings, taking a homestead in Colorado. My grandfather Marion Edwin Forsman is the son of Ben. I have a lot of info on this Forsman family and would like to connect with others on the tree. There seem to be other branches where communication was cut off generations ago. Please contact me if you feel you are related.
