His mother was from Brunflo; that must be where the Ostersund error came from.
Is this the same record that you meant by the Magistrate's record?

No it isn't. I will look later on in those books, if there is anything.
I'll be back.

Hi

I found no records in the court books unfortunately.
I'll post the records I found digging around. They show all the family leaving for USA. You may have these already.

1899
https://sok.riksarkivet.se/bildvisning/A0012553_00264#?c=&m=&s=&cv=263&xywh=81%2C2038%2C5526%2C3108
Row 16: Anders Fredrik Andersson and family.
Row 29: Karl Magnus Duncker. His soldier's name was Duncker.

1900
https://sok.riksarkivet.se/bildvisning/80009035_00377#?c=&m=&s=&cv=376&xywh=-124%2C1321%2C5569%2C3133
Row 8: Anders Fredrik Andersson
Row 16: Karl Magnus Duncker Holmgren.

1902
https://sok.riksarkivet.se/bildvisning/F0012124_00297#?c=&m=&s=&cv=296&xywh=-18%2C2551%2C4898%2C2755
Row 24: Karl Magnus Holmgren. He changed from Duncker to Holmgren.

To see some of these records you'll have to become a member. It is free to do so.

Wow!  Thank you so much!  I had always thought the Holmgren name was from the army; this is the first I've seen the Duncker name. 

I have registered at the archives and can see all your links; thank you SO MUCH!!

You're welcome.
I wonder if Holmgren is his father's name and this is the reason he changed to it.

That is a very plausible theory. 
I found this at the Archives:  https://sok.riksarkivet.se/bildvisning/Folk_023048-045   which I believe to be him, just using surname Holmgren, in the 1900 census. When he first came to Canada, he was in the sawmill/logging industry, so the occupation is feasible, if they still had their own occupation while being in the military?

Yes it is him, 2 years before he left for USA.
