My mothers grandfather where in Negaunee, Michigan sometimes in 1890.
And I´m wonder if there is someone who can found out something more about his visit in USA?

His name was Leander Jakobsson Asplund, born 1863-08-28 in Kronoby, Finland. And in Finland he was a tailor.
I know that he came back to Finland and died there.

It was fortunate that somebody did Negaunee census. Most townships were not completed.

Thank you Marcy and Chuck.

It looks like that is the right Leander Asplund. But where did you found that info?

Asplund is a very commen name here in Sweden and Finland, but you never know...

Bye the way... Leander had one son who came to Ellis Island in 1924. His name was Edvard Asplund b 1895-05-18 and should be visiting his uncle Viktor Nilson in Crosby Minnesota.
And then one son who was in Canada. But we don´t know where he was. His name was Walter Alexander Asplund b 1905-01-11.

He is in the home of Isaac and Mary Ekorn along with many other boarders.

Thank you so very much, Karen.
Now I have some more to tell my mother about her uncle Edvard. She is 81 years old and she is often talking about when she was young. And when Walter came home from USA again.
I hope that you or someone else found something about Walter.

Who was Isaac and Mary Ekorn, who had people living at there place? Is there anyone else that know something about them? It would be very interesting to know something more about the Ekorn.
