Now, as far as Emelia goes......she is an Axelson:

2-2 F. O. Axelson, 37, farmer, value of real estate $400. Value of personal property $661, born in Sweden. His wife and children are not there with him - so I would guess that they are either visiting in Sweden, or he came over first and they followed later.

Dora, 13, KS
Mina, 9, KS

(this must be his second wife, and children by her)

I do not see Francis/Frank/Frans but I do see Godfrey:

Swedish Emmigration records:

Franz Olaf Axelsson; born 10 Mar 1838, Ljungby, Kalmar, Sweden. Son of Axel Peterson and Catharane Jonasson.

If you look on you will see this line carried back into the 1700s.
