They return to her parents’ farm Kättebo in 1888 as tenants along with their first daughter. In 1895 they move to Karlsborg in Tranåskvarn, only to move on to the timber saw Lövåsa in the same area in 1897. Jakob now works as a labourer. In the year 1900 he gets a job at the factory of Sjövik Carpentry in Årnäs by the lake Värmeln in Brunskog parish in faraway Värmland.

A year later sees them back in Säby again, in Rosengård in the Tranåskvarn area. In 1903 they move out to Storryd, where they hire an apartment for two years.

In April 1905 their eldest daughter decides to emigrate and settle with her mother’s brothers in the newly founded village of Viking in northern Minnesota, and a year later the rest of the family follow suit. They establish themselves under the names of Oscar & Ida Jacobson. The village itself was only founded as such in 1905, so they were true pioneers in the area.

Many relatives settled in Viking over the years, and usually David Ahlfort was their contact person. He had emigrated in 1889.

Oscar gives his occupation as carpenter when the enter the United States, but he soon tries his luck as a boarding house proprietor in Viking. By 1920 he has reverted to being a labourer, however.

The couple have 6 children.
