    • Karl A. Almquist, age 50, is listed aboard the Romeo, departing 31 Jul 1891 for Hull, England, final destination Red Wing, Minn. His birthplace is given as Sandseryd, Jkpg.

      Note: re the Romeo
      The Wilson ships that brought emigrants from Göteborg to Hull always
      departed on Fridays. Normally the crossing took 50 hours. If conditions
      were good, it happened that you could come over the North Sea in 39
      hours. But sometimes you did not reach Hull until Monday morning after
      being at sea for 70 hours. As a rule emigrants expected to be able to leave in 1-4
      days after arriving in Liverpool, but because of over bookings they often
      had to wait much longer.
