Looking for info on my maternal great-grandfather, Alexander Brustrom, b. 1847 in Trannas, Sweden based on sketchy family info. Came to US in about 1904 with his family, and eventually wound up in Texas; no info on where/how he entered the US.
Sons were David Zachariah & Emil/Amil Brustrom, but have no info on his wife.
Thanks for any help you can provide on this!

When were the sons born? Could this family be the right one?
Asby parish, where this Alexander was born, is about 20 kilometers south-east of the town Tranås (which Trannas may refer to).
There is a son David Zackeus, but no Emil - was he born after 1890?
Home parish: Västra Ryd
Alexander Bjurström b. 1847 in Asby, Östergötland county, soldier/grenadier
Anna Lovisa Johansdotter b. 1849 in Skirö, Jönköping county, wife
Children, all born in Västra Ryd:
Kristina Sofia b. 1878
Karl Gustaf b. 1879
Anna Lovisa b. 1883
Johan August Petrus b. 1885
David Zakeus b. 1887
