Ek in Duluth Minnesota from Sweden in 1903

Classification: Query
Surnames: Ek, Eke, Eck, Oak
I am trying to trace my great grandfather Anders Johan Ek back to Sweden. He immigrated to Duluth, Mn. in 1903 with his wife Anna Lovisa (Johansson, Jonaasson, Johansdotter, etc) and his son Einar Karl Ek. His brother Mauritz Wilhelm Ek also immigrated with his family.

Anders Johan changed his name to John Ek after he moved and became a naturalized citizen.

I am having a tough time coming up with anything re: where he came from in Sweden and who his parents were. On the immigration manifesto (in Swedish), it looks like he came from Traukil Werml.... must be illegible handwriting because I also cannot find anything geographically close to that name in Sweden.... Any help from anyone would be very appreciated!!!
