Found passport on Migration, Järf, Henrik Arvid, 1875, Mustasaari, 04.12.1903. Arrived Boston 24 Dec 1903 from Liverpool on the SS Saxonia. He was 28, says going to sister Hilma ?Rodas Box 55 Salt Lake, UT. I checked all 15 pages of the manifest, no Kristian Kloo.
I did find a Johannes Kloo going to brother Kris Kloo, Holly Beach, NJ 27 Apr 1902 SS Merion. Says last res. Sweden, but he was a sailor. Karen

Hi Karen
Thank you very much for your lookup.This is the Järf im looking for.
Looks like Kristian Kloo used another name or he was not travelling with Arvid Järf as i was told.Birthyear for Kristian Kristiansson Kloo or whatever name hi used is 1873 and churchbook says: to Amerika dec.1903.
