Omund Olson - immigration

My great grandfather, Omund Olson, the 6th and last child born to Sigri Gunnersdatter and Ole Larson left Norway and moved to the United States in 1884.     Here is the Odda parish, Hordaland County, Norway emigration record (right side, entry #2) leaving the parish on April 16, 1884.

Here is the transcribed emigration record indicating Omund left Bergen, Hordaland County, Norway on April 24, 1884 traveling on a ship on the American Line.

Here is page 1 of the passenger list showing the ship, SS Ohio, left Liverpool, England and arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on  May 13, 1884.

Here is the passenger list with Omund listed (entry #6).    The passenger list indicates "place of birth" and "last legal settlement" as Sweden.   Norway became an independent nation from Sweden on June 7, 1905.

Here is a drawing of the SS Ohio.
