Olof Olsson Osterberg emigration

Olof Olsson was bon 30 Oct 1867 to Bengt Olson and Marie Jensen. I have Olof's Death Certificate, and the above information is taken from that document. I am not sure when Olof changed his last name from Olsson to Osterberg, but I think it was about the time of immigration.

Other family information is as follows:
Wife: Ingrid Malmstrom, born 25 Sept 1869
Children: Edith Ulrikka Maria born 29 Jan 1890
Hulda born 1891 died 1891
Ebba Linnea born 29 Oct 1893
Hulda Oliva born 19 Spept 1895
Franz Wilhelm born 15 Nov 1896
Agnes Alida born 25 Jul 1899
Elsa Ingeborg born 1 Oct 1901
My grandmother (Edith) was baptized in Limhamns Kirke in Malmo.

According to the manifest of the SS Ivernia, Olof & family were traveling to Chicago to join his brother, A J Olsson, who had been living there for 16 years. I have no other information about A J Olsson.

I hope this helps. I appreciate anything you might be able to find.
