His brothers were Johan (b 24 Jan 1839), Jons (b 29 Aug 1840), Eric (b 20 Sep 1843), and Peter (b 4 Sep 1846). Mattias and his brothers were sailors. I have no record of any of the brothers being married. Johan and Jon were still living in Sweden in 1894. Eric and Peter immigrated to America and homesteaded in the Lodgepole NE area.
Mattias married Brittia 'Bertha' Katherine Nilsdotter Lindberg on 13 Nov 1870 in Ytterlännäs parish, Västernorrland läns, Sweden. Her birth name was Nilsdotter but her father changed his surname to Lindberg and Brittia used that as her maiden name.
