Did she emigrate to America?
Emilia Arvidsson (1882-1929) was my Great Grandmother who came from the Gothenburg area of Sweden.
Emilia’s birth record shows her mothers name as Anna Lovisa Arvidsson, and no father is recorded (family oral history states that Anna had her daughter, Emilia out of marriage). The church record shows her mothers age as 21 (in 1882), therefore Anna Lovisa’s birth-year would be 1861.
We know that Emilia was placed for adoption at an early age by her mother Anna. The following record shows an Anna L Arvidsson who emigrated to USA in 1884 (at age 23), if this is Emilia’s mother, this was 2 years after she gave birth to her daughter, Emilia (our Great Grandmother). Name matches well, birth year matches (1861), place of origin ‘Bönarp Halland Län, Sverige’ matches, port of departure ‘Goteborg’ (Gothenburg)is appropriate. So perhaps this is a match?

The above record of emigration matches a Shipping Record, detailing an Anna Arvidsson on the SS Pavonia departing Liverpool on 20 Sep 1884 bound for New York.
From this point it gets difficult, tracing an Anna Arvidsson, possibly in the USA, who was only 23 years old, and probably married with a new surname.
It would be really nice to find out her history. What happened to her after adopting out her daughter?, if she went to the USA did she have a family?, where did she live?
Christian Meurer was the father of Ernest Louis Meurer, Ernest emigrated to Australia in 1858. Ernest’s Australian death certificate shows his father, Christian, was a Clergyman and his marriage certificate shows his father as a Schoolmaster. Christian possibly came from the town of Gensungen, Hessen, Germany as this was where Ernest, his son, was born in 1829 (183 years ago). Hessen is a state located in the centre of modern Germany.
It is likely Christian was born around 1800-1812. Christian's wife was Susannah Wieland born March 1807 in Gensungen, Hessen, Germany.
Up to now Christian's story cannot be traced further, information such as; when he was born, where he was born, his parents, siblings, career, and other life events.
Any additional details would be welcome.
