Född:1866-10-28 Motala 1)

Bosatt:1899 20 N Desplaines h(ouses) 15 Janssen av 3)Chicago city directory
1899 Theodore, A. foreman

1900 no Theodore or Albert
 
Bosatt:1901 Wiltshire, Langley Burrell, Chippenham District 12 4)Using the names, ages and birth places of the children in the ship list, the following seems to be the correct family in the 1901 England census:
street name 2 ?Densland Place
Theodore Bergstrom, head, age 34, foreman Machine shop, worker. Born Sweden, naturalized American Citizen.

Maud, wife, age 29, born Sweden, naturalized American Citizen. [She is 5 years younger than Albert Theodore, which matches the 1922 Mary Christine Bergstrom ship list entry]

Sara, daughter, 11, United States [NOT found on 1922 ship list]

Violet, daughter, 9, U.S. [NOT found on 1922 ship list]

Arthur, son, 3, U.S. [NOT found on 1922 ship list]

Esther, daughter, 1 month, born Chippenham, Wilts. [found on the 1922 ship list entry]

Helen, daughter, 1, U.S. [found on the 1922 ship list entry]

The family also has a servant and a nurse living with them.
 
Bosatt:1910 Texas 5)Förmodligen fel Albert Theodor:
There is a T.Albert Bergstrom in Texas in 1910, and his age and emmigration date fit, but the Texas death index has his birthdate as September 22, 1866 instead of October, and his parents are not right. It might be worth keeping him in mind though.
 
Emigrerade:1919-03-31 New York-Chicago från Chippenham, England 6)Name: Albert Theodore Bergstrom
Arrival Date: 31 Mar 1919
Birth Year: abt 1866
Birth Location: Sweden
Birth Location Other: Metala
Age: 52 Years 4 Months
Gender: Male
Ethnicity/Race¬/Nationality: Scandinavian
Port of Departure: Liverpool, England
Port of Arrival: New York, New York
Ship Name: Orduna

Last residence: Chippenham, England. Relative: wife Mrs. Theo Bergstrom, 73 Marshfield Road, Chippenham, Wilts. Destination: Chicago, Illinois. Born Motala, Sweden. No family members with him.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ancestry.com includes a third entry for Albert: March 31, 1919, New York, ship name: Orduna:

BERGRSTROM, Albert Theodore, age 52 years, 4 months. Can read English and Swedish. Nationality: Sweden. Last permanent residence: England, Chippenham. Nearest relative in country whence alien came: wife Mrs. Theo Bergrstrom, 73 Marshfield Road, Chippenham. Final destination: Chicago, Illinois. "Non-immigrant". Whether ever before in the U.S.: 14 years in Chicago (date of 1914 written over '14 years'). Traveling to Bus friend John Lagerlof, 3630 Nth Recine Av. Chicago... Place of birth: Sweden Motala.

So, Ann, it appears Albert Theodore, apparently going by the name of "Theo", lived most of his life in England.

His entry into the U.K. in June of 1919, same ship:

BERGSTROM, Albert. 73 Marshfield Rd. Chippenham Rd. Wilts. Engineer. age 52, citizen of Sweden. Country to which return tickets are held: England. Country of last permanent residence: England. Country of intended future permanent residence: England.

When I look at the 1901 census record in England, I find a possible match, although there are some problems with the date:
Wiltshire, Langley Burrell, Chippenham District 12
street name 2 ?Densland Place
Theodore Bergstrom, head, age 34, foreman Machine shop, worker. Born Sweden, naturalized American Citizen.

Maud, wife, age 29, born Sweden, naturalized American Citizen.

Sara, daughter, 11, United States

Violet, daughter, 9, U.S.

Arthur, son, 3, U.S.

Esther, daughter, 1 month, born Chippenham, Wilts.

Helen, daughter, 1, U.S.

The family also has a servant and a nurse living with them.
------------------------------------

I find a U.K. immigration ship list for November 1899, from New York to Liverpool:

Theodore Bergstrom, age 38, tool maker

Emily, age 36, wife

Sara, 10; Violet, 8; Arthur, 2; Ellen, 7/12.
------------------------

The wife Mary Christine may have been a later marriage?
 
Emigrerade:1922-07-22 New York (Chicago, Illinois) 7)A later Ellis Island entry matches your Albert Theodore Bergstrom:

Ship S. S. Aquitania, sailing from Southampton, July 22, 1922. Arriving New York.
