I am searching for information on Johan Julius Rustanius. His father was Johan August Rustanius and his mother was Augusta Fredrika Winberg. Thefamily moved to Helsinki in during Johan's teen years from a small town west of Helsinki. Johan AAugust and his brother Karl Gustav were sausage-makers / butchers. Karl moved to Oulu and Johan's shop was in Helsinki.
It is said that the family were of Swedish extraction.
I would appreciate any contacts / information that anyone has. Thank you, Carolyn Nelson.

Hi Carolyn,
Since Johan August Rustanius had a shop in Helsinki I thought there could be some info to find in newspapers from that time.
So I made a search in the The Finnish Historical Newspaper Library 1771-1890 (http://digi.lib.helsinki.fi/index_en.html)

And, yes I found some that may interest you.

For example I found a death notice on a daughter of theirs, named Ranghild Gertrud who died 12 jan 1891 in the age of 2 years and 4 days from a fierce disease.
The note reveals that she is bitterly mourned by her parents and 3 brothers, relatives and friends
And it is undersigned Fredrika och Aug. Rustanius.
(4 jan 1891, Hufvudstadsbladet)

It seems that Johan August Rustanius used the first name August because even in other notices he is mentioned as A. Rustanius.
He was a sausage-maker master when he married Fredrika Winberg.

If you find this interesting, send me a private note.
