I am trying to find out more about my second cousin in the US. The information I have, has been collected from different sources including Census records, birth and death records using Ancestry.com and FamilySearch. In some cases I have made some conclusions about family connections by combining pieces of information for different sources.
Can anyone give me anything that either confirms or questions my results. How should I proceed to get this confirmed and find additional information? Mainly I am interested in Arthur E Barlund junior, his family and possible siblings.

This is what I have:

Thanks June,
Fredrik William is my grandfather and I have the Finnish part of his family. What I am looking for is the descendants of his brother Johan Robert who emigrated to the US.
