In my previous post, I gave you 2 marriage records for Frank. One with his 1st wife Emma, then with Charlotte. Familysearch.org has the marriages indexed as in Fon du Lac County. But the Wisconsin Historical Society has them listed for Florence County. I am assuming that Familysearch.org indexed them wrong. Frank died in 1901. His father was listed as John Johnson, but his marriage records listed him as John Oleson, which is most likely right. Frank would have become Frank Johnson, son of John Oleson in Sweden. Listing his father as John Johnson was most likely used to conform to the US ways, with the same last name used for one family.

After Frank died, Charlotte married Alex Forsberg in 1904. The 1905 state census shows all the Johnson children as sons and daughter of Alex, but they would have been stepchildren.

The 1910 census shows Lottie with no husband, but she is listed as married, not a widow.

The 1920 census shows a Lottie Johnson with a son Will still living in Florence County. I think this is Lottie with her 1st husband's last name of Johnson.

Florence County may have obits for Frank Johnson, and Lottie Forsberg/Johnson.

You did not specify where Oscar died, nor whom he married, and if he had any children. So I couldn't go any further on him, except the marriage record I found for him in Michigan.
