Locate Carl Svensson birthplace and residence

Surnames: Svensson, Bengtsson
I am trying to locate the birthplace and residence of my grandfather, Carl Svensson. He was born 4 Oct 1874 poss in Laholm, Halland, Sweden. Emigrated from Liverpool, Eng., 1 Nov 1901, Arr NYC 9 Nov 1901 on "Lucania", with fiance' Anna Josefina Bengtsson, born 22 Jun 1882 in Getinge, Halland, Sweden.
His father was Sven Peter Jonsson, born 1831, died 1930, he had a brother, Henrik Wilhelm Svensson, born 7 Apr 1879,
supposedly in Halmsted, who emmigrated in 1904. The last entry I can find for Carl's fiance' is a household examination for Laholms Landsforsamling, where her family was still together. (Ref: GID [1820.24.21500 [Halland] Laholms Landsforsamling, Al:10, Household examination, 1887-1895, 0/334,Image 215 of 244]). She was hired as a maid by Sven Peter Jonsson, and got pregnant by Carl Swanson. They then left for America in late 1901.
I was trying to follow her move out to find Sven, Carl, and their residence, but no luck. I have been unable to find any matching names and dates in the 1880 or 1890 swedish census's. There seems to be a big gap in the swedish records just before 1900.
Any help or thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks for reading this long post.
