Svante Johan Svensson Koeven
When Svante's first mission ended in 1866, he traveled to the United States. He was originally supposed to sail on the ship Cavour but was transferred to the Humboldt shortly before setting sail.
Svante's name appears as "Sven" written off to the side of that of Sophia Widen on one of the copies of the overland company roster, along with that of Anders Peterson. The records show that Sophia purchased three adult food rations for that portion of the journey so although her relationship to these two men is unknown, they were all traveling together.
Sophia married Anders the following year.
Some sources list his name as "S. J. Kaven," "S. J. Koevin," or "John Svensson Koeven."
