I am trying to find anything I can about Emma, who married my great uncle Otto Vilhelm Merijärvi (this is his name in Finland), or William Johnson in USA. They lived in Chisholm, Minnesota. They later moved to Traverse City, Michigan approximately 1930. I am also trying to find out when and where they got married.

thank you,

a family tree on Ancestry shows Emma Johanna Lagerström, born 1.8.1890, Kronoby

there was a Emma Johanna born on that date in Kronoby; parents Johan Hansson Gertrud, born 22.6.1853, Larsmo; and Maria Johanna Lagerström, born 1.1.1865, Kronoby

Minnesota Official Marriage System (MOMS) Index shows William Johnson and Emma Lagerstrom married 28.3.1910, St. Louis County, MN...you can request a copy for $9


first born child according to that family tree was Arnold William Johnson, born 21.12.1910, Chisholm, MN...so maybe his parents were married in Chisholm?

I wasn't able to reply to your query so I sent you a private message giving details of Otto and his children. Hope you found it. If not, let me know.

It makes sense if they got married in Chisholm because his sisters, Ida, Hilda and Tilda all lived here at that time. Sorry, June, I haven't found your private message.

Here's what I sent.. Hasse told me that the reason I couldn't reply earlier was because I used an umlaut ö which the system didn't recognize!

Thank you so much June. You filled in many blanks in my research. I have been trying to thank you many times and hitting the reply hasn't worked - hopefully it will now.
