I have a couple more requests for help from Finland and would appreciate any information:

Juho (Johan) Friis, b. 5.7.1864, his wife Pauline, b. 3.6.1867 and their child, b. 6.12.1900 Haapajärvi. They immigrated to USA 20.4.1901?.

and

Inga Fulkerson (earlier name Friis(wall), her father`s name may be Matts, b. 2 Oct. 1898, d. March 1987.
Social Security Number: 543-34-5673
State or Territory where Number was issued: Oregon
Death Residence Localitie ZIP Code 91720
Localities: Corona, Riverside, California
Frontera, Riverside, California.

Jeanette found a death record in Lunenberg, MA for a Jerry Friis who could be the child of Johan Friis (above):
21.6.1896 Jerry A. Friis 8 mos, Lunenburg, MA -John Friis, Finland and Lena Lapeta, Finland, buried in Fitchburg, MA-Forest Hill"

------------
Johan Emil Johansson Nylund, b. 28 Jul 1881, Nedervetil. Emigrated to America and last heard from in 1912 in Minneapolis. Perhaps he married and settled somewhere in MN.

Hi June,
This man seems to be about the right age and Fitchburg matches as a place of residence but if they didn't emigrate until 1901?
Perhaps the actual census image will better help.

These were the closest I found for John E Nylund. The best fit is for Napa County in California.

Karen and Jeanette - thanks for all that info. I'm writing to Finland today, so will include all the Nylund possibilities. And I'll also send Suoma the latest finds for Friis.
