Malin Klangeryd's research turned up conviction records and newspaper stories that verified the family concerns about their daughter's friendship with Uno.
At the time Uno was married to Johanna (Sophia) Lovisa Juberg. They had three children who all died young.
Oh, another small detail....
Uno has another woman in his life about the same time that Johanna was heading to New York City -- Anna Charlotta Carlsson.
Uno leaves for New York on 17 April 1874. We haven't found him on a boat earlier that would have gotten him to NYC in 1871 as indicated in the family letters. There isn't any evidence of Uno traveling with his wife. Anna Charlotta already left for New York on 17 May 1872. So if he was there in 1871, Anna Charlotta might have been on her way to be with Uno.
Fast forward a couple of years, back in Sweden in the Household Examination (a census taken by the local priest) for 27 March 1875 -18 April 1879:
Anna Charlotta lives on Västerlånggatan 69, City block Ulysses 36, Storkyrkoförsamlingen parish in Stockholm. 13 May 1877 Alma Maria Charlotta (the daugher) is born illegitimate. Father unknown. She becomes legitimate 6 May 1884 [source: Storkyrkoförsamlingen parish, Birth records 1872-1880, SE/SSA/0016/C I a 1/21, page 497]
Then the Household Examination for 21 April 1879 - 8 June 1880 has Uno Kempff, Anna Charlotta and her daughter Alma Maria living together at Brogatan 25 in Klara parish, Stockholm.
8 June 1880: Anna Charlotta and daughter moves to Götgatan 24, city block Västergötland 5 in Maria Magdalena.
11 June 1880: Uno Kempff moves to Götgatan 24, city block Västergötland 5 in Maria Magdalena. He is working as shop assistant and later as a bookkeeper.
7 November 1881: Uno moves to Köpmansgatan 18 in Storkyrkoförsamlingen, Stockholm
10 November 1881: Anna Charlotta with her daughter moves to Köpmansgatan 18 in Storkyrkoförsamlingen, Stockholm.
6 May 1884, Anna Charlotta married (but it not clear who she actually married) and her daughter is no longer illegitimate. Shortly thereafter, on 29 May 1884 Uno Kempff dies at Köpmanstorget 10 (Street block Europa) in Storkyrkoförsamlingen, Stockholm.
By 1892, Anna Charlotta and her daughter Alma Maria are each using the last name Kempff.
So, I guess Johanna wasn't married to Uno as rumor had it.
What was Johanna doing in New York City when she ran away?
What happened to our Johanna?
There are some more gaps in Johanna's life to fill in.
