1930 census shows Charles lst married at age 35 would
be year 1895. Tilda came over in 1900 so he must have
been married before he left Finland. Will see what I can
find on death records. Nothing came up with the census

Hello Alf,

Karl Waldemar & Anna Matilda (Riska) Cannelin are buried in Graceland Cemetery - South Superior, Douglas County, Wisconsin (http://www.rootsweb.com/~widougla/cemetery/graceland/graceland_bd.htm).

Maybe Lars H. Cannelin is Karl's brother?
