I am trying to research my Swede-Finn grandmother (my mother's mother):
Clara Sofia Peterson born 17.04.1869 Finland (possibly in the area of Vasa lan)
She was from a family of 12 or 13, (including 2 sets of twins). Two of the brothers' names were William and Andrew who also came to America (Worcester or Hopkinton MA area).
She came to America (Worcester MA) at age 20 (around 1889). She married Joseph Edward Anderson in 1892 in Worcester MA, and returned to Finland in 1894 or 1895 with son John William (age 1-2) and gave birth to Hulda Irene (October 21, 1895). She returned to husband in Worcester MA in 1899 and raised 5 more children.
Any information is greatly appreciated. Sally
