I think our Johann Kihlstrom's are different individuals (born on different dates in different locations). What is your cousin's name, is he/she a Kilstrom? I live in Sumner, WA, just south of Seattle, WA.
My grandfather, Carl Olof Kihlstrom, was born in Woxna, Gavelborg, Sweden in 1876. My Johan was his brother, born in 1891. Carl came to the United States and worked hard to provide fare to bring many of his family to the US. Nice to hear from you, Brian
