Westerholm, Richard




His father was Adolf Westerholm.

I am searching for the name of Richard's mother and any siblings. Also death dates for Adolf and his wife.  Richard emigrated to the UK and married in 1897 to a Rosina Holderness. Their first son was my father also named Richard. Adolf is listed on my grandfather's marriage certificate as a cab proprietor so I assume that he was alive at that time. I don't know when or how old my grandfather was when he emigrated.
