Your goal at this point is to find the Swedish parish they came from! Who came? full names. Children? What year? 1850-s still early in Swedish immigration... the big wave did not start until after 1865. This should make it a bit easier. If you know the exact year, then you can find the ship manifest which may have some clues.
