Nils Joel Knippare was born 26.06.1894 in Kronoby Finland. I have found records showing he arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia 22Feb1924 with a ship called Stockholm.
He visited Finland in the 1950:s to watch the summer olympics and visit his relatives. I have flight records from Pan American Airways showing he arrived back to the States New York, New York 30Jul1955.
When he visited Finland in the 1950:s he told his brother that he worked at the Ford Motor Company, showed some pictures of his "house in the country" and that he use Johansson for last name. ??
After the 1950:s we heard nothing from him, or his family.
Sorry about my rusty english...

My data doesn't match.. maybe someone else on the Forum can find something..

Ford Motor had a factory near Detroit.. maybe that's where Nils lived.

That is probably true, I found a picture of him that was taken in Ironwood Michigan.
Maybe somebody else on the Forum has some data that matches.
