John Engdahl father Swen Johanson

My greatgrandfather came to Minnesota on March 24, 1880 Changed his name to John S. Engdahl by 1882 When he took out Citizenship papers. Moved to Minneapolis, Minn. before 1882 when he took out his Citizenship papers. His Death Certificate says his father's name was Swen Johanson. I have an old picture that shows John's house in Sweden on the back it says John's house in Engeback, Sweden. Looking it up on a old map it looks like lt's in the Parish of Karlstsds in the countie of Varmland. I tryed looking it up at the LDS Church Library but could not find that name. John's birthday is May 25, 1857 His wife's name was Anna Mara (Anderson) I believe. John was supposed to have come over with two brothers, also Anna's brother came. We have a picture of Anna's house and it says she came from Katterud in the parish of Gunnarskog, Varmland. Looking for any information I can get on John Engdahl Thank you.
