COMMENTS:

Identification of primary person:
US facts: Phar O. STENBERG, born 7 Oct 1865 in Kalmar. Father Daniel
Swedish facts: Peter Olof Danielsson STENBERG, b 1864-10-07. Father Daniel
Discussion:
1  Surname matches.   2  Birth date is exact.   3  Father's name is Daniel.   4  Initials match, also in order.   5 "Phar" is a possible mis-reading / transformation of Peter.  
Conclusion: Identical (Hae)

marinsoldat literally translates to marine soldier but in fact this is a soldier aboard a ship . nothing like the US or British Marines.
