The emigrants from Gräsmark

Three brothers from Gräsmark, Värmland, Sweden left Sweden in the 1880’s…
1881-11-11 Jan Nilsson (born 1857) leaves Gräsmark…
1884-11-31 Johannes Nilsson (born 1855) leaves Gräsmark…
1889-10-18 Nils Nilsson (born 1863) leaves Gräsmark…
1896-06-20 their mother Katrina Svensdotter (widow since 1887) also leaves Gräsmark…

According to a register at Graceland Cemetery in South Superior, Douglas County, Wisconsin there are three men buried at Graceland and the surname Haglund makes it interesting:
Joe Haglund b1855 d1926
John Haglund b1857 d1929
Nels Haglund b1863 d1930

I believe these three are the very same and would like to know more about them, if someone happens to know…

The first picture is from the a house hearings in Gräsmark 1881-85, when Jan and Johannes leave (1881/1884).
The second picture is from the a house hearings in Gräsmark 1886-92, when the younger brother Nils leave (1889).
The third picture is from the a house hearings in Gräsmark 1893-99, when their mother Katrina leaves (1896) and the youngest brother Magnus named here later changed name to Haglund when becoming a shoemaker. So, there we are: the four Haglund brothers.
