    Minnie died in 1973 .... and there is a better spelling of the mother's name!

    https://www.familysearch.org/search/...r%3A1970-1975~

    Died 11 Feb 1973; Buried 14 Feb 1973
    Address 5835 Washtenaw Avenue
    Father John Johnson
    Mother Albertina Eckholm
    Informant Georgianna Pierluissi


    I can see where "Eckholm" might have been mis-heard by an American as "Akholm"

    I think your next step probably should be tracing up the children of Minnie and Axel Johnson, and their children, to see if they have any memories of your Axel Johnson.

    Hi again Sylvia,

    Thanks for the information, but the thing that bothers me is that "Axel Jonsson" is just from "Sweden" is was a really common name back then... but I will try to search for Minnie...

    Some news: Ive got in touch with an relative that says that Axel wasnt from "Jämtland" he was from "Västernorrland" from a town called "Loviken" (just on the border between Jämtland and Västernorrland) and the nearest town with an bigger population and a church was "Holm" but I still cant find an axel who went from there to the states.
