Thanks for checking. I think the first Augusta, born 18 Jul 1868, from Laholms landsförs, Hallands län, is the right one, but I'm not sure.
Augusta's obituary says Augusta (Bengtsson) Sokness, 74,was born June 16, 1868, in Sweden, came to Two Harbors in 1888. I'm reasonably sure that the EmiHamn info was correct because it said her destination was Two Harbors, Minnesota. The dates are a little off. EmiHamn said she emigrated 24 May 1889; the Emibas said 5 Apr 1889. But these dates are only a couple weeks apart. Her obit said she was born 16 Jun 1868; Emibas said 18 Jul 1868. Again not a great disparity. EmiHamn said her point of origin was Askome, Halland Län, but Emibas said she was from from Mellby No 10, Laholms landsförs, Hallands län, but were these places where she was born or where she was living when she emigrated? Are these places close to each other?
I know Augusta had a brother Otto (b abt 1871) who said he immigrated in 1889 also. Could they have left together? Do you have anything like a census that would give her parents and siblings? or a passenger list that might show her and/or brother Otto? There might even have been another brother Anders (b abt 1881) who emigrated later.
Augusta has been a real brick wall for me. All references to her said her name was Bengtsson, so that was what I was searching on. I didn't hit pay dirt until I though to try Bengtsdotter.
