View Full Version : Simons, Ross - Superior, WI

29-06-06, 23:16
Seeking information (for another) regarding roots of:

Lena Simons, born June 14, 1871. Immig. 1889. Died October 19, 1947, Superior, WI.

Gust Ross, born February 9, 1865. Immig. 1887. Died February 7, 1953, Superior, WI.

Gust and Lena were married January 20, 1900, Superior, WI.

Also, Mary Simons, mother of Lena. Born 1843. Immig. 1889. Died April 2, 1910 (Superior, WI?)

Also, John Williams, brother-in-law of Gust Ross. Born abt 1880. Immig. 1898.

I did find possible passenger information for a Karolina Simons at Institute of MIgration online but date of departure was 1899 and not 1889. Information given to me could be in error.

I was told all were born in Finland and were Swedish speakers.

Any help is appreciated.
