Hi,

I tried searching on the US side for Elna Sofia, but found nothing solid.

I'm thinking wills/probates might be your answer. On the Swedish side, Elna's parents died in 1904 & 1921 (records below). Unfortunately, ArkivDigital only has "Estate Inventories" up to 1900 for Hallingeberg (norra) parish.

On the US side, you could find the will of Anna Emilia, who may have left something for Elna, assuming Elna didn't die first. Also any of Elna's siblings that died in the US.
