Someone in Finland is seeking information about a relative who emigrated to Ironwood, MI.
Emma Matilda Mattsdotter Skriko, b. 20 Apr 1863, to America ca 1890. Married Gust Lindquist who ran a sort of general store in Ironwood.

Emma's sister Anna Brita Mattsdotter Skriko, b. 27 May 1859 emigrated to America 1891 and may have also married and lived in Ironwood. I have photos of both women and their husbands - don't know Anna's husband's name.

Would appreciate any information about these sisters.

Hello Art,

Quick work! That's great information. I happened to have Gustaf's parents in my database, but didn't make the connection to Emma. As for the sister-in-law named Anna, b. May 1861, I wonder if she is Anna Brita, b. May 1859. I'll have to check the birth records for Nedervetil. I'm going to send a photo of Emma and her husband and family, separately. It indicates Ironwood, MI. The photo of Anna doesn't have a city on it.

I'll get this info. off to Finland - I know they'll be happy to get it. Thanks again.

Here's Emma Skriko Linquist's older sister Anna Brita, b. 27 May 1859 (not May 1861) and her husband. The picture notes that she was in Ironwood, MI. I think she looks like the woman dressed all in black, holding the baby, in the picture taken by the Linquist store. Maybe she was dressed in black because she was a widow at that time. The 1900 census shows she was single, not a widow. Could she have married after 1900?

Thanks again, Art. I'm building up a nice report to send to Finland. I noted that Matt Ahlstrom was a driver of horses/store and that makes me wonder if he is the man in the photo who is sitting in the wagon outside the Linquist store. I was also interested in the names of the boarders to see if I could get a clue. There was a Renlund family living in Gamlakarleby, but I think the name can be found elsewhere.

I found a city directory online for Ironwood that indicated Gust Lindquist lived at 244 Pine and his store was at 250 Pine - and in 1912 a Matt Alstrom, miner, lived at 245 Pine. In 1928 Mrs. Anna Ahlstrom lived at 245 Pine, but no mention of Matt. So perhaps he had died by that time.

Thanks again, Art. Fredrik said he's going to join Finlander because of all the information I've been sending to him...

Isn't it strange that two of our members are searching the Lindquist name, but as far as I can tell the two families aren't related. We've made a lot of progress on Gust Lindquist's family, but Albert Santoni is at a brick wall on his Lindquist family in Ludington, Michigan. He hasn't been able to find out anything more about the family there or in Ashland, WI where they moved later.

I posted one more marriage record for Andrew Lindquist on the Lindqvist/Lindquist/Linquist (http://finlander.eget.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=3263) family in Ludington, Michigan thread which you may want to check out.
