I'm trying to find out some information about mrs Otto Edwardson (1903-1976). She was born Staffans in Finland 18th Dec 1904, and was living at 1290 20th Avenue i San Frasisco in 1956. Also if there is any information about their son Gordon. I just have the name of him no further information except for some familystories. Lina was married to the brother of my grandmother.

Otto Sigfried Edwardson and Esther Adelina Staffans were married 9.6.1928, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada...the marriage certificate identifies Esther Adelina's parents as Johan Erik Staffans and Maria Östergård...

Johan Erik Staffans was born 5.10.1876, Solf; parents Eric Jonasson Staffans, born 20.5.1838, Sundom, Korsholm (http://hiski.genealogia.fi/hiski/eo5w11?en+0227+kastetut+37084); and Maria Ulrica Isaksdr Lervik, born 17.5.1841, Sundom, Korsholm (http://hiski.genealogia.fi/hiski/eo5w11?en+0227+kastetut+38134)

Solf Communion Book, 1883-1892, Öfre Sundom 7, Lervik: the family of Erik Jonasson Staffans and Maja Ulrica Isaksdr (link from SSHY members site) https://www.sukuhistoria.fi/sshy/sivut_eng/jasenille/paikat.php?bid=25486&pnum=387

my guess is Johan Erik Staffans and Maria Östergård were married in Solf, as there is a farm by that name there...

according to her Petition for Naturalization, Esther Adelina Edwardson was born 18.12.1901, Sundom, Vasa, Finland...so she may have been born in Solf, but birth records available at SSHY end at 1900...

the Petition for Naturalization listed son Harry Gordon, born 9.10.1929, Vancouver, B.C., Canada

California Marriage Records Index: Harry G. Edwardson, born abt 1929; married Dimatra J Bonos, 1.12.1962, San Francisco, CA
