This seems like a very good suggestion! Calvin is a logical choice for Kolbein, and the estimated birth year is correct. Family Search apparently has no more information on him, and I searched for Calvin Joseph with variants on Ancestry without bringing up any relevant men by that name in sources after 1860. Something else may turn up...

Thanks for your help!
