I've done extensive research of my Swedish roots. I am providing following information from my family tree on she and her husband Nels.
Jenny Mathilda Petersdotter PEARSON
2nd cousin 1x removed
Birth 03 Nov 1879 in Storäng Kalvsvik, Kronoberg, Sweden
Death 30 Nov 1960 in Machesney Park, Winnebago, Illinois
Nels Persson PEARSON

They both emigrated to South Beloit, WI, Nels in 1906 and Jenny in 1908 with Oscar and Selma. They moved to Milbank, SD where Nels filed his naturalization papers in 1912. Four children were born in Milbank, Esther, Roy, Edith, and Elmer. Nels and Jenny lived there until moving to Machesney Park sometime in 1929 (according to Jenny's obit).

I'm not sure why Selma's gravestone is Person other than name confusion. They emigrated as Persson, changed name to Pearson after Selma's death.
If you can connect Oscar to Nels and Jenny I would very much appreciate it.
Thanks so much.
