From Swedes in Texas
OSCAR CARLSON is another man from Småland, who has settled in Melvin, He was born in Lekeryd parish the district of Jönköping, in 1871. His father, Adolf Blixt, was a soldier. Carlson emigrated in 1891 and came to this country, and first settled in Austin, Texas. He worked for the railroad for several years and for a few years he was section foreman for the H. &. T. C. Railroad He grew tired of this type of work and decided to become a farmer. In 1907 he bought land in West Sweden, McCulloch County, and moved there with his wife. After some time he sold this land, which was located near the Swedish Methodist Church, and bought half a section near Melvin. He now owns a beautiful home, and in addition to farming, he raises cattle. Mr. Carlson started out with two empty hands like so many others.

His wife, Sophia West, is from Häkatp (Hakarp) in Småland. She came to Texas in 1894 and married Mr. Carlson in the following year. They have six children together: Abbey 1905, Luther 1907, Elof 1909, Martin 1912, Hellen 1914 and Edith 1916.
