Surnames: Palm and Nilsen
I am looking for Gustav Adolph Palm and his second wife, Mathilda Christine Nilsen from Sweden. Gustav's DOB 7 Dec. 1831 in Bjornekulla, Kristianstad, Sweden. His first wife (unknown) had Charles DOB 1860 in Sweden. Not sure where Gustav married Mathilda--Sweden or Massachusetts, USA. Gustav died in 1884 at age 53 in Millbury, Massachusetts.
Would anyone have any information about Gustav, his first wife or Mathilda?
Thanks for your help. Please reply to rosemaryboyer1.

There's a Gustav & Matilda Palm family in the 1880 US Census in MA, Worcester co., Worcester city. Appear to be living at 1 Lincoln st., with at least 4 other families. Date of Census: 10 JUN 1880.

Gustav is 49 yrs old, born Sweden, as were his parents
Matilda is 27 yrs old, born Sweden, as were her parents

Children:
Albert, 1 yr old, born MA
Charles, 20 yrs old, born Sweden

Enoch, 17 yrs old, is listed as nephew, born Sweden, parents born Sweden

All males except Albert working in Mills.

If you go to http://pilot.familysearch.org, and search for gustave palm in worcester, ma, you'll find marriages of 3 kids and the death of Gustav. Matilda's maiden name appears to be Matilda C Malcolm.

Thank you for helping me. What a great website that is.
Although, I must say, I am so confused on all the different spellings of names of my greatgrandparents. It was exciting, however, to see the information of their marriages and my greatgrandfather's death information.
Thank you for giving me this gift of information.
You wouldn't be knowledgeable about Swedish genealogy? I can't seem to go back into Sweden with this family line. I was told that Gustav and Mathilda were born in Sweden.
Thank you again and enjoy the day.

They are found at Björnekulla number 9 in GID 1630.15.50200, [Kristianstad] Björnekulla, Household examination, 1828-1838, page 88, Image 119:
