Nilsons in Dodge county, NE, 1800s

Looking for the families of Mans Nilsson, b.?, d. bef. 1880, and Anna Svensdotter/Swanson, b. bet.1835-1837 in Sweden, d. 3/30/1897 in Fremont, Dodge, NE. I have no marriage info.
1-Johanna Nilson, b. Nov/1861 in Sweden, d. 1945 in Fremont, m. Frederick W. Draemel 11/4/1880.
Children: Milo Frederick, Harry Nilson, Olga A., and E.L.
They were divorced sometime between 1900 and 1920, but buried together in Ridge Cemetery, Fremont. I don't know where she lived bet. 1900 and her death, possibly with relatives, obviously nearby.
2-Anna Nilson, b. abt. 1864 in Sweden. It's probably her on an 1885 NE state census, single (or at least still using Nilson), and living in Fremont. I don't know if or who she married, but would like to.
According to Johanna's 1900 census, they immigrated in 1870, and appear in Dodge county on the 1880 census. After being widowed, I'm assuming Anna Swanson Nilson may have moved to be near relatives. If anyone has info about them, or anything you think might help, please let me know.
