I'm trying to get additional information on Maria Oliva Lillvik b. 7.7.1863, Lappfjärd. Married Robert Johansson Lillvik and move to the Boston/Quincy area about 1889-1890 based on passport information.

In 1897 Robert Johnson (a quarryman) was living in a boarding house on 23 Nelson St. West Quincy, Masschusetts with his brothers-in-law William W. Johnson (unemployed) and my grandfather Victor Johnson (stonecutter).

I can't find anything else about Maria and Robert other than they were identified in an estate probate as being in the USA in July 1899.

Chuck could you add them to your list of people to research for the next time you go to Swenson?

Hi,
I've checked Svensk-Finlands Nykterhetsföeningen's membership list for around 1907 for the three lodges in Massachusetts but found nothing. Will try a list of OR lodges from 1960's tomorrow.

I found them rather easily but other than the difference in birth date information for Maria Olivia, there is nothing new, no children, no place to which they went after leaving Salem Lutheran but here is a scan of the info for you. The page is folded to make the image manageable.

Thanks, again, Chuck for your sleuthing. As you have seen with your checking and Syrene's, I can't locate them anywhere after the 1900 census. I checked Massachusetts census for 1910 and every state census for 1920 for Robert Johnson born in Finland and didn't get a hit. I will be doing the same for 1910 and then for Mary and then try to find the son Robert born 1896.

Thanks, again to you and Syrene for your efforts.

There were no separate listings for Robert. All listings for Mary were age 34 or younger and none were in Suffolk or Norfolk. Nor were there any Johnson listings for Marie/Maria.

Hoping you find Robert & Marie at one of the above.
