My grandfather David A. Stenmark emigrated to the US in the 1910's. His sister Signe was here before him and they both settled in Michigan. He had other brothers and sisters and my Aunt Janet, my father's sister may have more information regarding the family history. But I don't think your forefather was the first. But who knows, we could be related. FYI, David Stenmark had two children, Jerome david and Janet. My father Jerome David had 6 children, 5 daughters and 1 son. Laura,Lisa, Alison,Tracey, Michelle, Shawn. My brother Hsawn just had a daughter Sydney born last August.
