Hilmar and Ragnhild Bjorkman

My maternal grandparents - Hilmar Eugen Bjerkmann (Bjorkman) and Ragnhild Amalia Hermina Sjoholm. Hilmar was known as Gene and his parents were Andreas Olsen Bjerkmann and Gustava Norgren. Even though Hilmar was born in Norway, both of his parents were born in Sweden.
Ragnhild was the daughter of Herman Justus Sjoholm and Alma Lindhe Latt. Ragnhild was born in Sweden.
Hilmar emigrated to the U.S. in 1912, and Ragnhild followed about 6 months later (1913). They married a month after Ragnhild's arrival in Illinois.
