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?
