I have a hunch that this might actually be Akim B. Aanstad. You transcribed it
correctly but believe there may have been a typo with his name on the death
certificate. He was from Norway and had died before the Eastland disaster of
1915. I just finished a book about this and am trying to connect the dots.
Maybe we should do a photo request and see if that solves the mystery of the
first name? I made findagrave memorials today for his widow and the 2 daughters
that survived the Eastland.

This is his youngest daughter:
