Carl August Stenlund (wrongly may be written as Stenlind), born about 1884 in Kaskö, lived in Kåtnäs, Närpes. Emigrated to America from Kristiania (Norway) , arrived in New York Dec 4, 1915 on the Christian IV.

Any informations you can give me on his life "over there", is of importance.

Thank you

I found one Carl Stenlund on the 1920 and 1930 Census in Bakersfield, CA, but date of birth is off. Says he was born abt 1895. He is from Finland, is single and a machinist in a railroad shop. In 1920, he lives in the home of John and Wendla Hoaglund. In 1930 he's in the home of Emil and Lena Carlson.

I did find your Karl Stenlind arriving 4 Dec 1915 on the Fredrik VIII from Christiania. It says he's 31, which would have your 1884 birth about right. He's married, wife Anna Stenlind in Narpes. He's going to friend Oskar Klockars in Worcester, MA. Says he's 5 ft 9, ruddy complexion, brown hair, blue eyes. I found Oskar Klockars in the census for Worcester, but not Stenlund or Stenlind.

Karen, you have found the right Stenlund.

This is what I know now.

Karl August Stenlund born Aug 29, 1884 in Kaskö, moved abt 1893 to Närpes, Kåtnäs.
Married Anna Alina Klockars born Apr 29, 1884 died Sept 14, 1961 in Närpes.

About August says he was abroad in 1915, prob. lives in America, but has not written home since 1927.

Anyone who knows anything else about him ???
