Prior to her marriage to Emil, she was married to Nils Johan Larsson Spolander (1872-1900), with whom she had a daughter before his death. Prior to her marriage to Nils, Anna had two sons out of wedlock, one son who died young and my 2nd great grandfather, Wilhelm Percy Wellin (1895-1977). Anna, Emil, and their children (including Wilhelm) immigrated to the United States in 1906.
