Johan and Olof Olsson, Chicago

I’m hitting my head against a brick wall… any suggestions on how to punch a hole in it would be welcome…

I’m looking for two brothers: Olof Olsson (b. 27 January 1880, Hanebo, Sweden) and Johan Olsson (b. 9 September 1887, Hanebo, Sweden). Johan left Söderala, Sweden in 1907 and Olof in 1908. Olof arrived in New York on 21 February 1908, and headed for 1123 Belmont Avenue, Chicago, IL, where his brother lived. -Except for the fact that they were both alive and living in the US when their mother died in 1926, that’s where I lose them.

I do realise that, considering their last name, it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack…
