Hi.

I'm seeking information about my grandmother's uncle John Tuorinen.

He was born 11.04.1885 in Viitasaari, Finland, moved to USA 1903, and disappeared.

From passenger record:

Last name Tuorinen
First names Johannes
Age or age group 18

Place of destination Ashtabula
State of destination OH
Country of destination USA
Price of ticket FIM 218

Ship from England Nordland
Date of departure from England 22.04.1903
Ocean Line American Line
Port of departure in England *
List and page 22/76

Nordland sailed then Liverpool-Queenstown-Philadelphia.

Does anybody know something about him? All information is more than welcome.

Tippi from Finland

I found one entry on the 1910 Ohio Miracode Index for a John Toroman, Finland, age 24, in the home of George Merrifield (no relation) Mantua Township, Portage County, OH. I tried to look at the actual 1910 census image, but it's such bad quality it's unreadable. The Toroman would be a misspelling and with the quality of the record, I can see why. The only other Tourinen I found was in the 1920 census in Pentland, Luce, MI. Tourinen, John, patient, 47, Finland. But his est. DOB is 1873. He's a patient in the Upper Penninsula Hospital for the Insane. Karen
