Looking for any information on Isaac Kataisto. Would have been my grandfather. I need to know where he came from in Finland. I know when he came 1/1910, have found him on the census for 1910 in Michigan. 1920 in Ashland County Ashland WI. With my grandmother Hannah, my Uncle Walter or Arthur, and my Aunt Elsie. My 1920 he was using the last name of Isto. I may have found him in the 1930 census. Not sure if it is him yet. I've found him again under what looks like Kataisto in 1930.
I am not really sure if they were married legally or just common-law. They have one child together that I know of, my mother. Mayme. In 1930 my grandmother Hanna, my Aunt Elsie, and my mother Mayme are listed on the census in Michigan Houghton County, Hancock. Isaac is gone, and my Uncle Walter or Arthur, is gone because he had killed himself in March of that year. I don't know where Isaac went. My grandmother's maiden name was Haapala. Her family once from Alajarvi Finland.
