Olof was a country store owner in Eskilsäter parish, where all of the family were born, part of today's community of Säffle. There was also a son Bror Oscar who was born Oct 26, 1866, and died Dec 17, 1866.

In 1869, they moved to Karlstad city parish, at the northern end of Sweden's largest lake Vänern, where he was first listed as a mate, then he became steamboat captain. In 1876, the family moved to Karlstad country parish (Tingvalla), where they lived until Olof's death in 1894.
