Thanks soo much for the information.

Anna´s maiden name is Månsdotter (Månsdaughter or if you will Månsson). She´s born 24 Aug 1848 in Sjörup, Häglinge parish. Her brother Per is my grandfather´s grandfather.

I suspect a brother to Anna and Per (named Nils)emigrated to Minnesota but have no clue to where he settled. In the letters my ancestor Per probably writes that Nils has died around 1895/96 but don´t know where. (There is a Nils Månsson who dies in Goodhue in 1895, but Nils Månsson is very usual names). Anna writes that he had a wife and children, but no names. I also suspect a sister has emigrated and married a danish emigrant named Horup. In 1896 Horup is living in Leavenworth but he is sick. Anna mention someone called Betty who has died (his wife?). Anna has given Horup Per´s address and if he wasn´t related in some way why would he get it?

No, don´t know yet where Anna S is born in Iowa but it´s an unusual last name (what I think) so perhaps it won´t be difficult to find it.
