Additional information provided from Conny Nilsén:

Amanda Karlsson or Carlsdotter (29) is sister to Terese Karlsson (18) and they had one other sister named Hilma, and three brothers named Carl, David and Aldor. Those three brothers emigrated to US, and the state of Illinois. I can't say in what year they left Sweden for America, and if they had left or not when this photo was taken. I think all three of them changed their last name to Carlsén, but I'm not sure. Their father and mother are Karl Nilsson (1854 - 1895) and I. Josefina Johansdotter (1856 - 1937).

Axel Nilsén had two sisters and they are also on the photo! They are Alma (32) and Viktoria (33).
