Johan, Katrina and their son Ernest immigrated to America on the passenger ship SS Arabic. They arrived in Boston Massachusetts on 17 June 1905. Their destination was Murray Utah to join their son Karl Johan who had immigrated two years earlier in the year 1903.

Johan and Katrina's daughter Bernhardina Lovisa who was married by then, stayed behind in Sweden with her husband and children.
