Swedish emigration records show Jakob Wilhelm left Göteborg for Chicago April 23rd, 1869. Another record from the same source shows Wilhelm leaving Göteborg for Worcester, Masachusetts on August 12th, 1881. Both records indicate that he may not have been sure of his own age - the first has his birth year as 1848, the second as 1855. The church record is more precise - see above.
