Ljungberg is the Swedish spelling. Lawson is an Americanization of Larsson but she would have been Larsdotter because she was a daughter and not a son.

When were these people born? Maybe they could be found in some records or databases for Sweden, if that interests you to go back to the old country.

Many of us have found great information from the Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center. They have a website but their extensive collection of records is not online.

Leua is probably Lena, short for Helena or another name with Lena in it. Lena is a common female name in Sweden.

Xave might be a nickname for Xavier, which is a male name but maybe not a Swedish male name. I'm not sure.
