I can say definitively that we are not related through the Eklund line. My grandfather, born Per Erik Andersson, also chose Eklund to use as his name in America. Per had two brothers and one sister who remained in Sweden, never changing their names. He also had three sisters that immigrated to Kittson County before Per did; they all married and took their husbands' last names.
Per had two sons (carrying on the Eklund name). My uncle in turn had two sons who both have sons who are Eklunds. My father had one son who has no descendants.
As I know every Eklund that is part of our line, I know your family is not. I love finding cousins, so I wish we were related.
