I am not sure if you mean she was born 3-4-1902
or 4-3-1902

Hi Alicia,

Thank you for your help.
The birthday is 3rd April 1902, so I think you have find right Cecilia, but relatives in Finland called her Hildegard.

Can you find something more about her? .. my source said they have a son how died before his mother. Anderw (Anders) moved back to Finland.
We plan to visit US in July, to my relatives in Minneapolis and maybe other relatives in California.

Have a nice weekend

The name Palm caught my eye. My mormor mor was Sophia Palm s. 25 Aug 1861 in the Kokkola area, k. 30 Sep 1919, Cromwell, Carlton,Minnesota. Is it possible there is a relation?

Found in HisKi cemetery, Tererijärvi

Matts 24.12.1872-2.5.1949
Cecilia 13.4.1878-27.2.1962
Rude 15.11.1916-14.3.1946
Matts Henry 28.9.1915-1.8.1979 Aili f. Österholm 17.10.1921-

Also, found a passport issued to a Matts Mattsson Palm, born 1872, from Alaveteli, VAA, 23.05.1894. Again, could not find him in the passenger lists. Looks like the family did not stay in the US. Maybe that's why I can't find them in the 1910 census if they returned before that. Probably Cecilia returned at that later date.

I have some information about Matts Leander Abrahamsson Skog, b. 24 Dec 1872, Nedervetil, d. 2 May 1949, Terjärv. He had a brother Henrik Viktor who died 1898 in the US.

Matts Leander married 20 Sep 1901 to Hilda Cecilia Mattsdotter Bredbacka, 1878-1962. They moved to Terjärv 1902. They had 4 children, one of whom was Cecilia Hildegard, b. 29 Apr 1902.

All of this data is found in Talko. The person who gave me this data didn't indicate that any of the family went to America. He also showed the family used the name Skog.

You said your mormor was Sophia Palm, b. 25 Aug 1861, near Karleby. Was she Maria Sofia Andersdotter Skog, b. 5 Aug 1861 in Nedervetil to Anders Andersson Skog and Maria Mattsdotter Pelo? They had 4 children: Greta Sofia, 1856; Anders Arvid, 1858; Maria Sofia 1861; Gustaf Viktor, 1863.

Anders Andersson Skog's farfar was Anders Andersson Palm, 1782-1831. If you want more info. I have a book listing everyone born in Nedervetil 1725-1906.

Success, found Cecilia Palm's arrival at Ellis Island on 6 Mar 1922
Palm, Cecilia
Terijarvi, Finland
18, female, single
SS Stockholm from Gothenburg, Sweden

manifest line 24
Palm, Cecilia, 18, dressmaker, speaks Swedish, can read and write, paid passage self, $25, says never in US before, going to friend Alexander Forss, 924 Summit Ave. Bronx, NY. 5'2", fair, blond, blue eyes, father Matts Palm, Terijärvi.

Looks like maybe they never used those passports or she was too young to remember and they never told her. Strange both father and mother would get passports and never use them. Did that happen often? Karen

Anders Andersson (Skog) Palm and Maria Mattsdotter Pelo had 6 children. The four June listed and also Alexander b. 12.11.1865 (Marian Johnsons Grandfather (morfar)) and Otto b. 1872.

Hildegards grandmother (farmor) was Maria Sofia Henriksdotter Palm. Hildegard is related to e.g. Otto Alarik Jakobsson Palm and Johan Uno Jakobsson Palm (both emigrated to Am).

Anders Andersson Skog-Palm and wife Maria Mattsdotter Pelo's son Anders Arvid went to Ludington, MI and married my farmors sister. His brother Gustav Victor also went to Ludington and became a shoemaker.

Göran, I remember Johan Uno and his wife Senni. They were a kind and gentle couple and when we visited each other we had so much fun. Otto Alarik married Anna Lydia Prest, one of my farmors små cousins.

I don't know about the Skog part. My mormor mor has listed on her death cert b. 25 Aug 1861 (not 05 Aug 1861) and her father is listed as Antti (Anders) from Alavela (probably a misspelling of Alaveteli). I'm hoping someone can bring this into focus. I haven't found Sophia in the usual sources.

Palm was previously called Skog - it is located in Överby near Viitavesi where my cousin lives. Alavateli is the Finnish name for Nedervetil.

I don't have access to the church record for Sofia, but in several places she is listed as Maria Sofia Andersdotter Skog-Palm, b. 5 Aug 1861 in Nedervetil to Anders Andersson Skog and his wife Maria Mattsdotter Pelo. I think we all agree that people sometimes are mistaken as to their exact birthdate and it can differ from what church records show. I can put together an ahnentafel for you showing Sofia's ancestry. HisKi data for Nedervetil ends at 1855, but I have the book which includes data up to 1906. I also have a copy of the Skog family book. Do you know anything about Sofia's siblings?

Göran Cainberg mentioned Alexander, who was Sofia's brother. His daughter Maria Johanna came to the US and was married in Duluth in 1916 to Viktor Erik Dahlqvist. Their daughter Marion Johnson visited Finland several years ago.

Emma's brother Anders Arvid emigrated to Ludington, MI and married my grandmother's sister. The two sisters lived a short distance apart. Anders owned a furniture store and I remember playing there as a child when we visited the family. Two of Anders' sons were Lutheran ministers and two of his daughters were school teachers.
