It was thought that Johan left the land after March 19, 1896; however, based on the new registration date, it must have occurred in February. According to Gun Ljunggren's story about the departure, Johan and his family left town with the aid of the new buyers, Aaron Nilsson. They were driven to the station at Norrfors by horse to catch the train. When this researcher visited the Riksarkivet in Stockholm (Archives), a gentlemen said that from Brattsbacka, during that time period, the family would have traveled to Norway to leave rather than going south to Malmo or Gotenborg. This meant going to Trondheim which is due west.
Johan left Brattsbacka before March 25, 1896 to travel with his wife, Carolina; his son, Fritz; and his daughter, Hanna; and his son Karl to Trondheim, Norway to board the ship "Juno" on March 25, 1896 heading to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. According to the shipping records, Johan was 36 years old, Carolina was 33 years old, Hanna was 8 years old, Karl was 6 years old and Fritz was 4 years old. From the records, it appears that there were only 33 passengers aboard the ship "Juno" heading to North America. The ship went to Canada between March 19 and 25, 1896.
Johan's occupation was a Carpenter. When he was in Canada he worked in a sawmill in Hawksbury.
