However...

The 1900, 1910 and 1930 US Census are all consistent with the age of Victor Erickson...33, 43 and 63 years of age respectively...all of which point to 1867 as his birth year.

And the 1900 and 1910 US Census both show his month and year of birth as May 1867.

Usually, the earliest census provide the most accurate information.

With that census information, it's difficult to reconcile a two year difference in the birth year (1867 v 1869).

Which brings me back to the question...Are you certain that Victor Erickson was born in Kristinestad?
