View Full Version : Tilda Sofia Lepisto born May 16 1887 Finlanf Ylistaro

13-08-18, 15:56
I am looking for information about Tilda Sofia Lepisto born on May 16, 1887 in Finland Ylistaro. She is my grandmother's sister.

Becomes America on January 25, 1907 on board Arabic.
She got married in America and had two children daughter and son.
She moved to the Soviet Union in the 1930s where a man and a boy died.
The daughter stayed in America.
She was probably back in the 1960s through Finland to America.
I do not know the names of husband and children. Can anyone help?

Many thanks


Etsin siis tietoja isoäitini sisaresta. Hän on syntynyt Ylistarossa ja muuttanut sieltä Lapualle. Sieltä muutanut 1907 Amerikkaan. Lähiomaiseksi on merkitty isoäitini HilmaMaria Hintikka (os. Lepistö) syntynyt 29. syyskuuta 1884 muutanut Amerikkaan 17.4.1905, joka oli mennyt Amerikassa naimisiin Otto Hintikan kanssa 16.5.1906 ja asuivat Ashtabula OH. Muuttivat sieltä 1907 takaisin Suomeen. On luultavaa, että Tilda Sofia olisi mennyt Ashtabulaan, mutta tämä on vain arvaus.

Kiitos mahdollisesta avusta

In January 1907, Tilda Sofia was going to join her sister Hilma Hint???, in Ashtabula, Ohio

I think both of them used the name Tuuri in America

Hilma Maria Tuuri and Otto Hintikka married 16.5.1906, Ashtabula, Ohio

Tilda Tuuri and August Hemming married 1.10.1910, Cuyhaoga County, Ohio

this might be Tilda in the 1910 US Census, a servant for a private family, residing in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio (line 68)
