My great grandparents arrived at Ellis Island in 1907, on the Oscar II. They were John (Johan) Eriksson Konn and Annie Esther Ingström. They were from Narpes. Johan's parents were Erik Gabrielsson Konn and Helene?. Annie's parents were Fritjof Ingström and Anna Elisa Deir. A woman named Evelina Konn accompanied them on the trip. Johan and Annie had 5 sons, Louis, Ernest, Gustav, Bernard and Rudolph. Johan and Annie were Swedish speaking Finns. They lived in Portland, Oregon in the USA. The name Konn switched to the spelling Conn over the years. I am looking for anyone with information on siblings of Johan and Annie, and for any information on remaining relatives in Finland, probably close to Narpes. Thanks!:)

Hi Cheryl,

You mentioned in your post that you are interested in remaining relatives in Närpes.Yes you have living relatives in Bäckby,Närpes.
Johans sister Agnes(mentioned in Henriks replay) and married with Karl Oskar Karlsson Uppgård(Skrifvars) has several living descendants.One is Karl Christer Skrifvars,living nearby.I will see him on saturday and will also ask if he is aware about his relatives in Spokane Valley!

I will try to attach a picture of Anna Lisa Ingström(Teir).Hopefully it works.

Very Best Regards

Richard Skrifvars

It can be noted that three of Fritjof Karl-Henriksson Ingström's children (among them Anni Esther)
were born in Sideby. He worked as parish organist ("klockare") 1880-1891 in
Sideby and is mentioned at http://sydaby.eget.net/eng/ch/sideby_church.htm
. I also know living grandchildren of one Ingström from Närpes (presumably
this same family) who moved to Risby in Sastmola (Merikarvia) but do not
remember which his first name was.

Regards,

My heartfelt gratitude to all of you who shared information about my relatives. A special thank you to Haase for sending me an email reminding me about this forum!

I do hope to visit Finland soon. My uncle David, who legally changed the spelling of his last name back to Konn from Conn as it evolved in the USA, tells me he will travel with me. He is a cardiologist residing in Aberdeen, WA, in Grays Harbor. Uncle David has been to Finland once. If I can get some pictures from him, I will share.

Hope to meet you wonderful people in person in Finland!
All the Best,
Cheryl Conn

Hi Cheryl,

The woman far right is Anna Lisa.The other one is her daughter Eva and the boy in the middle is Evas son Eddie.

This picture can be found in the book "Byarna vid bergen" ISBN 952-91-1112-6, page 67.

Yes,I talked to Carl Krister and he wasn´t aware about this connection.But he was very interested to learn more.
It would be nice to have a pedigree from Johan and Annie and forward to show him.

You can send it as a privat email if you like.

VBR
