Hi

I wonder if here is somone from the US especially from the Duluth area
that has info on what happened to these Finns of the Mattans.

Wendla Johansdotter Mattans b 27.6.1884 d 16.11.1918
Greta Stina Johansdotter Mattans b 4.10.1885 this one might have changed name to Annie
Hilda Johansdotter Mattans b 15.4.1887
Alina Wilhelmina Johansdotter Mattans b 21.4.1892

It is told that the Mattans owned or ran a hotel in the Duluth area

I would like to get some info on the descendants.

These are the sisters of my grandmother Henrika.

Regards
Asle

Hi Asle,
I did a quick search on census records in Duluth, Minnesota and without knowing married surnames of the sisters, it was a bit impossible to find them. I ended up doing a search in the immigration index, and found this Vendla Mattans passenger record, born in 1884. So, assuming this is the correct Vendla (Wendla) Mattans, she was going to Mountain Iron, Minnesota, to brother, John Karlson. Still unsure, but I will check this out further. Attached is the passenger record.
Best Regards,
Denise

Hi Asle,
I found this Vilhelmina Mattans' passenger record, but birth is not correct, also going to brother, John Karlson. :confused:

Hi Asle,
I found a Karl Mattans and Anders Mars, going to cousin, John Smits, in Mountain Iron, Minnesota. Do any of these other names ring any bells? :)

Hi,
I found this submitted tree on Ancestry.com regarding Mattans. Do you see a connection to your Mattans sisters? This would go along with the John Karlson mentioned in my previous post.

I have not found out too much new, but here is what I know now.

Alina Wilhelmina Johansdotter Mattans was married to a Mr. Mark They owned a hotel in New York, I wonder if this could be a hotel named The Mark Hotel.

Hilda Johansdotter Mattans was married and had a daughter called Jeanett.

Greta Stina Johansdotter Mattans was married to a Oskar Johnsson.

I hope someone can help me.
