View Full Version : Lillrusk or Lillros

19-01-06, 19:08
I am looking for more family information. My gr grandfather emmigrated in 1882 from Finland. I believe from the Korsholm or Vassa area. His name was John Lillros. His sisters were Marie and Matilda which also emmigrated later. He married Anne (Redlig) Anderson. I have found that side of the family in Vassa but I am trying to find out if any Lillros's stayed in Finland. My gr gr grandfather is buried in the old cemetary in Korsholm. His name was Johan Lillros. He was married to Johanna I Back. His parents were Innysubgen Matts Mattson Lillrusk and Maja L.L. Nyman.

Any other information would be helpful

Släkten Räf shows that Johannes Alfred Svedvall-Johansson, b. 16 Dec 1880, Storsved, Munsala, married 28 Oct 1906 to Amanda Redlig, b. 11 Dec 1886. They had 2 children and moved to Australia 1910. No further info.

HisKi has one Lillrusk birth:
christened: 13.12.1839
village: Stafversby
father: Lbd. Matts Lillrusk
mother: Maja Lisa 42
child: Maria

Lots of Lillrusk births in Korsnäs.

There are lots of Redlig names in Korsholm - it appears to be a military name because the name also appears in other parishes as military.

Just a note here. That's not my area of knowledge otherwise.
Innysubgen is not part of the name.
My guess is inhysingen as a title during some period of his life, meaning independent lodger. During Maria's birth in Korsholm (re: June's quotation) he was landbonde, meaning tenant farmer.
