Someone in Finland is seeking information about 4 sisters and a brother who emigrated to Ludington, MI. He's like to find any information, including descendants. They probably used the name Majander or Anderson.

1. Anna Brita Andersdotter, b. 7 Jan 1856, Karleby, married Erik Adrian Eriksson Palm.

2. Amalia Andersdotter, b. 7 Jan 1858, Karleby, married Alexander Mattsson Åberg-Oberg.

3. Johanna Andersdotter, b. 18 Aug 1860,Karleby, married Johan Palsa.

4. Matts Leander Andersson, b. 3 Nov 1862, Karleby, married Helena Sofia Molander.

5. Ida Sophia Andersdotter, b. 7 Oct 1867, Karleby, married #1 Alfred Nylund; married #2 Johan Jonson, lived in Oregon.

Previously I had posted a query for someone in Sweden concerning Helena Molander, married to Matts Leander.

Thank you, Denise! What a wonderful collection of data - and I'm finding other names that are familiar to me. In the 1900 census for Matt Anderson there is a John Gustafson listed. He was the father of a present-day doctor in Ludington. And in the 1910 census for Alfred Nylund, there's a Fred Swanson listed - probably a boarder. He could be my father's friend as the age is right. I'll have to study all this some more.

Thanks again, Denise. I noticed the names of Emil and Anna Bishop in the 1900 census. They were relatives of Albert Santoni - I'll write and tell him to look at this.

Thanks, Art. More good information. I had a feeling that Anna Brita married in the US - maybe in Ludington. They evidently returned to Finland because their children are born there.

I don't know anything about Nylund, but I'll pass your information along.
