Dear Andrew, Elida Olsson was born in Östra Nöbbelöv, Småland, Sweden (this is in the southeast of Sweden). She was on her way to her brother Olof who resided in St Paul, Minnesota. She had been working as a maid earlier, and was now looking for that kind of occupation in America. It is possible, however, that she intended to follow her fiancé, Thure Lundström, to Los Angeles. For some reason they became separated during the night and he entered boat No 15 after having seen several other Swedes into boat 13. Elida was lost at the age of 31.
