On Castle Garden records, Kristian Kloo, 24, occupation: joiner, Finland, single, arrived 18 Mar 1892 on the "Nevada", destination NY. That would be closer to the 1890 date he gave in 1900.

Hi Karen
Thanks for your lookup.Looks like it was the wrong Kris Kloo.
Right arriving year should be 1903 and age 30.
Kristian Kloo 24 in 1892 is my greatgranpa going to US the first time.
